Back to Work is an award winning talk show with Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin discussing productivity, communication, work, barriers, constraints, tools, and more.
Hosted by Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin.
TOPIC: You're living in the future!
This week, Merlin is in a bit of a tizzy as he tries to make coffee, redo his ads, and change his productivity system at the same time. Todoist and the evolving landscape of task apps are discussed. Dan likes Trello and Merlin likes tearing everything down and maybe just starting over.
iPhone call ID and blocking apps get the treatment and Merlin has some recommendations.
Dan has some questions about comics, and the boys reminisce about The Simpsons. As you do.
Things get a little dark as your hosts look at deploying web ad (and tracker) blocking as survival and safety OPSEC.
This leads to the donning of Futurist Hats and some subsequent speculation about the unfathomable things we might expect from our devices in the coming years.
