Also -- one of the most interesting-looking websites I've seen in a long time. So many sites today are (rightly) all about the content, and re-use the same tired old formats as the wrapper. Mullenweg has put a really individual stamp on his envelope here!
A few things I gleaned from his post, paraphrased and/or recontextualized:
- Real-time micro-blogging "conversation" tools (like Google's Wave, and WordPress' P2) may be the future of collaboration. OK, Wave has a lot more features built into it, but the basic ideas are pretty similar.
- If you're crazy-busy and still want to be productive with the things you care about, offload the administrivia and get a personal assistant (or maybe two.)
- If you need a lot of sleep to be creative/productive, arrange things to acommodate it.
- One way to manage the cost of context-switching is to batch related tasks into larger time blocks (possibly a whole day.)
