As some of you might have already seen, we’ve made some startup videos in Chinese recently. It all started when I came back from China in February and Ali of Zoomm.me had the crazy idea to use the fact that we have a striving startup scene here in Cologne together with my Chinese language skills to try a new video format. After some convincing from Ali and beers at Startplatz I agreed to his crazy idea. However, we didn’t find the time and I was gladly postponing embarrassing myself on the net. Then, at one of the Startup BBQ events, right before I was jumping on my next plane to China again, he nailed me down to it and used the pressure of getting Shangxin on board for the project to make me finally agree to meet one night and do it.
Nearly a year ago I published a post called Knowledge Worker Productivity (read it if you haven’t, yet). Over the last year a lot of friends told me how they especially liked this one post and looking back at what I wrote last year I decided to post an update as to what has changed in my routine since then.
First, note that I’m still kind of an information addict and read a lot for work and also in my “free time”. The information I consume might be a bit too much for many of you. However, this doesn’t mean the tools and methods I use won’t be helpful for your purposes.
So again, like in my last post, I’ll go into a bit more detail on the tools and methods I use and how I usually use them.
