I hereby set myself the challenge to keep this blog at one page, almost like a Wiki... but it's still a blog OK? This means reduced graphics, shorter explanations and more links to let you guys go 'walkabout', to read around the edges -> as most things have been said before anyway...
So I have some filters on my Gmail namely 'Efficiency / Productivity' and 'Reading List', and I thought I'd share some of them with you..
Efficiency and Productivity
- How to Write Micro Content http://www.useit.com/alertbox/980906.html
- WikiWikiWeb based TiddlyWiki Remote http://phiffer.org/tiddly/
- Read this for a deep, deep insight into the workplace http://www.changethis.com/ go to the 'View Manifestos' link and then make sure you read Slacker@Work and How to Manage Smart People . Then maybe spend some time at http://www.slackermanager.com/
- Motivate yourself and 'develop personally' ;) with http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/ , I particularly enjoyed reading How to Become and Early Riser and then went to http://headrush.typepad.com/ and goofed around with a focus on Users aren't Dangerous and F**k the Rules
- The aptly titled http://www.lifehacker.com/ just too cool for school !
- The Josh Kaufman "Personal MBA" Program http://www.joshkaufman.net/archives/2005/03/the_josh_kaufma_1.html ( could kinda' be in the 'Reading List' section ! )
- GTD 'Getting Things Done' based excellent blog http://www.davidco.com/blogs/david/ and a brief startup list http://merlin.blogs.com/43folders/2004/09/getting_started.html to get you going with a nice PDF workflow etc http://www.davidco.com/pdfs/gtd_workflow_advanced.pdf
- 43Folders 'A bunch of tricks, hacks & other cool stuff' http://www.43folders.com/
Reading and Listening List
- O'Reilly Radar http://radar.oreilly.com/ , Wired and Wired Magazine respectively http://www.wired.com/ , http://www.wired.com/wired/

- Professional Integrity nowhere better explained as in 'The Fountainhead', by Ayn Rand
- Really great chat's with the big guys like Paul Graham, Steve Wozniak, Tim O'Reilly and Bruce Shneier on ITConversations http://www.itconversations.com/
- Keep an eye on Plan 9 and the GNU's HURD , let's not forget the 'to be' Open Sourced Solaris 10
- Solaris 10 sounds great and is possibly a more designed version of the below.
