Echo Workshop: Rhythms and Tools for Creative Work

August 1, 2011

Last week, I was a workshop presenter at the Echo Conference. I led a workshop called Rhythms and Tools for Creative Work. Here was the description: Most of us have had a good idea come to us in the mundane moments of life, like drifting off to sleep. (Hopefully, we remembered it in the morning.) […]

Creative Tools 2011: Production

February 10, 2011

Picking up the Creative Tools 2011 series is this post on the tools I use for production. (Previous posts: Hardware, Curation) THere are the tools I use to turn ideas into finished products — actual artifacts that I’m willing to share with others with a goal no less ambitious than the greater good of humanity. […]

Creative Tools 2011: Curation

January 25, 2011

In my creative tools series two years ago, I had a post about my backend tools. (Stop snickering!) The focus of the post was the tools that assist in creative work, but don’t do the heavy lifting of production itself. This year, I’ve gone with a much more glamorous, and much more tweetable, name: Curation. […]

Creative Tools 2011: Hardware

January 19, 2011

I started this blog three years ago this month, and it’s been an annual tradition to write about my current workflow tools, both hardware and software. It’s been helpful to link to this series as a response to the regular inquiries about what I’m using. I took a shortcut last year, only writing an update […]

Creative Tools: iPad

May 19, 2010

After a month with the iPad, I’ve found it’s more useful in my creative workflow than I imagined it would be. Here are my favorite apps on the iPad for my creative processes: SImplenote (iTunes) This is one of the two apps that makes the pad most useful for me. Simplenote is my primary writing […]

creative tools: 2010 update

January 15, 2010

It’s time for my annual take on what tools are in my creative arsenal. Rather than do the whole series this year, I’m going to list a handful of changes since last year’s posts. In an upcoming post, I will highlight creative tools I use on my iPhone. Here are the updates from the last […]

creative tools: various sundry miscellany

March 30, 2009

This is part of a short series on Creative Tools. Other posts in the series (so far) include: Creative Tools: Hardware, Creative Tools: Backend and Creative Tools: Production.

creative tools: production

March 18, 2009

This is part of a short series on Creative Tools. Other posts in the series (so far) include: Creative Tools: Hardware, Creative Tools: Backend. I have to say, I’m happy to move on from the Backend tools, to the much more glamorous production tools. These are the tools that I use to make things…to take […]

creative tools: backend

February 27, 2009

This is part of a short series on Creative Tools. Other posts in the series (so far) include: Creative Tools: Hardware. When I ran the workflow tools series last year, I had one post for my software tools. It seemed better this year to break it into two parts, this post on my backend tools, […]

creative tools: hardware

February 2, 2009

In the early days of this site, I ran a small series of posts called Workflow Tools. Over a year has passed, and enough has changed that an updated series is in order. I’ll begin with hardware again, but the software post will be spread over two different posts related to software usage. If I […]
