When I was playing at Cafe du Nord in San Francisco, I agreed to do an interview with Merlin Mann, the supergenius behind 43folders and 5ives and other things, for his new internet TV show The Merlin Show. Imagine my surprise when I showed up and there were two cameras, a couple of lav mics and a couch. It’s like a real TV show! Who knew?
We talked about Thing a Week, Hodgman, and my terrible inbox management skills, which I thought were pretty good until Merlin got his hands on me. As I say, I’m trying to get better, and so far his suggestions are totally working. He is a wizard (not literally).
