Scott Underwood from IDEO was kind enough to invite me down to their Palo Alto HQ for a tour of the renowned design group (they designed Appleâs first mouse!) and to participate with him in one of the company’s internal “Know How” talks. It was very informal (and yes, because this was during my recent “100-year sinus infection,” I was completely high on cold medicine).We talked about Getting Things Done, life hacks, knowledge work, nostalgia for scarcity, and the problem of getting addicted to productivity advice, among many other topics. This one’s a tour de force.Video runs about an hour, and yes: I am wearing a handsome Big Lebowski tshirt. Abide.Mea culpa — this was an intimate little gathering held for the benefit of those in the room (and never intended primarily as a for-video talk show shoot), so audience members’ questions were not recorded on-mic. Apologies for you not being able to hear them, but I think you mostly get the gist.Many thanks to Scott Underwood for inviting me and for participating in the talk, and to Eric Stangarone who shot the video and who was kind enough to permit me to share this with you guys, as well. Awesome company.
