Fellow forum members who are interested in life management (and let’s face it, that’s part of the appeal of CRIMPing, in that CRIMPers are ultimately seeking to manage their lives) might find some useful tips in this lengthy post by Stephen Wolfram, the chap behind the Wolfram programming language and search engine:

Enjoy!

Wow, his preferred method of collaborating with his staff looks very cool (Wolfram Notebooks – more at http://www.wolfram.com/presenter-tools/), but it’s also rather expensive, even for purely personal use.

Some great ideas in there for CRIMPworthy apps, however…

Just sayin’!

Well, Wolfram’s astonishing personal archive, file/ing systems and discipline have made me feel very inadequate. True, I have records going back decades, but nothing like his furiously integrated, massively searchable system. All based on Wolfram Notes, which he’s been developing for around 30 years; the latest version still happily reads files from the earliest…

Hm. That’s definitely food for thought, right there.

Wolfram has the 800 or so employees of Wolfram Research on hand to assist with his data acquisitiveness and development, so that the kind of “adequacy” that’s hard to match. 

The Connect-a-Dest walking desk is the apex of geekery.  Though, admittedly, a bit cool.

I haven’t read this yet, but on a brief skim I am endeared how authentically and unapologetically geeky he seems. ߘ

Thanks for posting, I look forward to diving in.
