Video: Learn How Electronic Tethers Are Limiting Productivity

Dec 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

In the No. 1 New York Times bestseller “Four-Hour Work Week,” author Timothy Ferriss advocates reducing the time we spend on BlackBerries and e-mail because those technologies can impede us from getting work done quickly and well. Great idea, right? But how can executives and creators in the “always on” new media, television and online video businesses apply those productivity strategies? TVWeek’s Daisy Whitney interviewed the author for the New Media Minute and obtained his specific advice and tips for new-media professionals. For more, check out this episode of the New Media Minute.

  1. Interesting that he follows nobody on Twitter, and ironic that he’s using social media as an old-school lecture vehicle instead of as an open dialogue. Seems clear he is an expert disseminating information, as opposed to someone immersed in the online conversation. Of course, with 10,000 followers, he’d be swamped if he followed only 10%.

  2. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  3. I think all of the fans may like it too.

  4. I would like to start my own blog one day. This was a really nice blog that you made here. Keep up the success 😛

  5. Took me moment in time toward examine every of the commentary, but I in reality loved the piece of writing. It proved being really obliging to me with I am constructive to every one of the commenters here! It’s generally pleasant whenever you be able to not just be informed, but in addition entertained! I am helpful you had enjoyable writing this write-up.
