Links from presentations during the week of 3/9/2008

In order to cut down on the number of Emails that will circulate as follow-up traffic from presentations this week, I am posting all links here.  This page might be updated as the week goes on, if so I will annotate links accordingly to distinguish newer information.  This page is not syndicated and will not…


Weekend blog entry: taking quick notes in meetings – saving clicks and keystrokes

Reducing overhead goes beyond just infrastructure tools, there are also ways to reduce the amount of time you put in to things like managing meetings and documentation.  I’ve found this to be a best practice that others might be able to use.  If you have OneNote and Outlook, you have all the prerequisites.

TechReady – my commute via LiveMeeting (aka, running myself virtually)
