TED Talks for Project Managers

TED Talks

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design and is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to the dissemination of ideas.

The importance of TED in the United States is comparable to that of the World Economic Forum in Davos in Europe, one of the most prominent forums for information exchange across sectors and interdisciplinary boundaries. However, TED has evolved from the progressive, liberal, tech-savvy environment of the West Coast, and so TED is much more about inspiration, positive thinking, "looking forward", and networking with other "changemakers" than Davos is.

True to the motto

Merlin Project now also supports Noteplan

Noteplan

At the latest with version 3, Noteplan has become a serious representative of Markdown-based note-taking apps.

With the flexibility of Markdown - which lets you quickly write text and create tasks - the app also offers some options for recording and organizing tasks. Add tags and mentions very easily, speeding up your workflow with natural language typing and auto-completion of tags, mentions, and links.

The reason I got in touch was due to numerous requests from Merlin Project customers who also use Noteplan for further documentation: They were looking for an easy way to hand over their data.

That's how I met the owner and main protagonist this year; Eduard Metzger lives and works in Panama, so he enjoys not only the good weather there, but also an excellent infrastructure. As a result, he always makes a very relaxed impression in our conversations.

Thanks to our AppleScript interface we were able to realize a simple data transfer. A free sample script can be downloaded here.

Architecture is a complex discipline with many demands on architects.

Your job as an architect is not only to conceptualize and design a building. There are a multitude of regulations and laws that must be followed. The many trades must be built by different and specialized companies.
