  • What's that in your menu bar?

    There have been some questions about what's in my menu bar as shown in my Macworld session, The Efficient Mac User (this slide). Here's the list (all 42 icons). It changes frequently, but this is what was running on the morning I grabbed the screenshot for the slide deck.…

  • The Efficient Mac User

    I've posted the slides from my Macworld talk. You can find them at brettterpstra.com/the-efficient-mac-user. You can advance through the slides using arrow keys or spacebar, and if you hover on the left you can jump around in the slides. The presentation includes several video examples which will play on advance.…

  • Goodbye Macworld 2014, and thank you!

    I'm taking off from SFO today. I want to thank everyone I got to meet (and sorry to those I didn't have time to catch up with). A special thanks to everyone who helped pack the room to fire capacity at my talk, it was a lot of fun.…

  • Macworld 2014

    If you're headed to Macworld, be sure to swing by for my talk. It's called The Efficient Mac User and will focus on helping "average" users start being "power" users. CF823 at 4pm on Thursday.…

  • A preview of my Macworld talk, via MacVoices

    Chuck Joiner was kind enough to invite me onto MacVoices #14048 to talk about my upcoming Macworld presentation: The Efficient Mac User (3/27 at 4pm, CF823, if you're going to be at Macworld). We talk about my motivation for the talk, what's going to be in it and who it's going to help.…

  • Wrangling email: my post on Macworld

    A post based on my presentation at the last Macworld is up on... wait for it... Macworld. It was written prior to the advent of Mailbox, which I'm testing as an alternative solution right now, but this is still my go-to system.…

  • Macworld 2013

    Well, I'm in San Francisco for Macworld 2013. My first few days here are going to be consumed with planning a redesign for AOL Tech and doing some heads-down coding. If you're around, though, ping me and I'll see if I have time for coffee/beer/dinner/whatever. I'm looking forward to meeting some people!…

  • From my Macworld Diary

    My Tech Talk this morning, "40 Tips in 40 Minutes" with David Sparks and Merlin Mann went really well, I think. I had fun doing it, anyway. I put up some show notes at the soon-to-change 40tips.com, if you're interested. I'm looking forward to seeing David and Merlin with Rob Corddry tomorrow. If you're around Macworld, you should probably get there early!…

  • Speaking at Macworld

    I thought I'd mention that I'll be joining David Sparks and Merlin Mann on stage at Macworld this year (well, next year, technically). We'll be presenting "40 tips in 40 minutes" (it will be more than 40). Tickets to the conference track are only US $75 this year, so I highly recommend getting in on this! Prices go up a little after December 5th, so get your pass to all of the Tech Talks now!…

  • Notational Velocity update breaks nvALT

    The latest update to the original Notational Velocity is awesome, and includes a lot of changes which I'll be merging in the next release of nvALT. However, it uses a newer database structure which, once you run the new Notational Velocity, will not work with nvALT. Be warned, if you download and try out the latest NV, you will not be able to run nvALT again until I get the changes merged.…

  • On my way to Macworld '11

    I'm sitting at the airport on free wifi right now, getting ready to embark on a trip from Minnesota to California for Macworld. If anyone is headed out there, I'd love to meet you. TUAW will be holding a meetup at some point, I think, so watch @tuaw_mwsf for that. I can also be reached on Twitter at @ttscoff, or contact me through the contact form here. I look forward to seeing some new faces and meeting up with old friends!…
