<a href="http://beyondbridges.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/natekontny.jpeg"><img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-2662" src="http://beyondbridges.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/natekontny-150x150.jpeg" alt="natekontny" width="150" height="150" /></a>OK - so with a switch here - and a switch there, I think I have managed to introduce a new part of my workflow - "just like that" - as Tommy Cooper used to say.
Here’s the deal – I have discovered this amazing online resource called ‘Draftin’.
Why am I excited ? Well – for a long time now I have been VERY disappointed with myself with regard to my use of Facebook. I drop a lot of stuff in there – mainly because it is soooooo easy. Then even just a week later – try finding anything – close to impossible. Facebook is ‘for the moment’. Sure – fun – but totally impractical.
I have the wordpress app on my pad and phone, i use Mars Edit, I have Blogsy – all great for ‘proper’ posts – but for quick ‘comments into the stream’ – over kill. No longer. Sign up to Draftin – post my comment – submit – and it drops right into my blog stream, complete with tags and categories.
Just some of ‘the bennies’
- It uses HTML and Markdown
- You can collaborate with it
- You can publish to blogs – hidden and public
- It hooks into dropbox, box, evernote …
In fact – what I have done is set up a new tag in the blog called ‘Journal’ – so that everything coming through this channel will be flagged – and though it is part of the timeline, it wont appear on the main blog – where more (ideally) thought provoking pieces will appear.
Anyway – now you know why I am excited – and now signing off as I move on with my ‘Great Experiment’.
<p>Just flagging that today - the 27th March 2013, <a href="https://draftin.com">I found this</a> ... and it is going to change how I work. Period.</p>
<p>Ok - this is just EXTRAORDINARY. Loving it.</p>
<p>Well now - lets see if this works - if it does - WOW !!! And apologies for the interruption - will explain more in the next post.</p>

… that last one is from the Guardian that posted to one day here.
… seems like I am not the only one thinking this way, This is a brilliant piece from last Summer’s TedX Boston – and I can’t wait to hear what he had to say at this years ‘Main Event’, that I hope will be posted to Ted soon.
You come away from that convention, pockets full of cards. You photograph them all and submit. After some OCR processing – you are asked to approve (dont need to wait – just come back to the app the next day) … and wow – all ready to be saved to your local contacts / address book – and a single click to connect with them on LinkedIN. How good is that ?
CardMunch is free and comes from LinkedIN – where else – and probably should have been done by Plaxo years ago. Plaxo ? Really ? Are they still around ?
They are – no need to check – it is essentially the same app it was when it launched – just that it’s owned by Comcast these days.

True – but it still needs to be measured – and then tied back to fiscal returns – no ?
