Home Screens – Merlin Mann

By far, the best dividends from my activity in the Apple community are the friendships I make. Last year, I became pals with Merlin Mann. (twitter) Merlin (a hotel-room-trashing caliber Internet rock star) is a busy guy and, as a result, doesn’t come off as exactly cuddly. The truth is, however, that Merlin is warm, fuzzy, and compassionate. Not only that, he’s on his own personal crusade to straighten out knowledge workers all around the world. Since Merlin is busy finishing his book, he just gave me his home screen shots and folders. So let’s tuck in.

Birdhouse,
Calvetica,
GoodReader,
Reeder,
Wikipanion Plus,
Instapaper,
Google Voice, and
Nebulous (which I covered here).

JotAgent,
Simplenote,
PlainText,
Elements,
Due, and
now do this.

Siri,
Outliner,
Markdown Mail,
Pro HDR,
iThoughts, and
Tumblr Me.

I normally limit these posts to just the home screen. However, I couldn’t help but also include Merlin’s last screen. Inbox Zero indeed.

Thanks Merlin.

    Thanks, Dave!

    This is like getting a tour of a great musician's recording studio, tips and tricks included.

    Love the pre-triage Inbox Zero screen (great idea), the folder names, Hacer and 2nd Chair and knowing that Merlin was listening to something (the latest MPU, perhaps?) when he took the screen shots.

    P.S. Just found out you can't use MultiMarkdown here… So HTML + TextExpander it is. 😉
