Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
Love this building and love the idea I come to it every day
Being enough pedantic and working mostly as a freelance with constant joining in several jobs/projects/events simultaneously makes me consider almost every diary extremely helpful. I’ve had many different diaries – from really small made-for-pocket ones up to a4 format huge notebooks. Time proved that all I need is smth small and handy (to carry with me) with any-minute access (so no online versions).
I remember my friend giving me an electronic organizer for my of my birthdays which, I’m sorry to say, turned out to be a completely useless and never used thing for me, mostly because of its inconvenience – that unhandy calculator-look gadget could not provide me even a day overview not to mention weeks, typing info was a time-consuming task, and manual competed the with L.Tolstoy’s “War and Piece”.

Here is the BarCamp official trailer. Imho, it’s absolutely awesome
I’m not probably the one to comment on the discussions & presentations which were taking place during this non-conference as I was a member of BarCamp Help-team – youngsters (he-he, should I consider myself the one… ) who were registereing, recording, filming, interviewing, blogging – well, all the things help-teamer are usually thought for.

Drinking tea on Monday morning and looking at all that work I need to do asap. No one would answer me why we all have only 24 h a day. I woudl prefer 27 or even 30 now…
People around me are often surprised about my ability to manage doing lots of things simultaneously and never giving up on any of them. No, no, guys, not everything at once – time managements controls it all However, I still have a weird habit to get involved in everything what’s I can be up to, and after all it is not only because of that absolute inability to say “No” to people who are asking for help. This is mostly because I like keeping myself busy – that’s healthy! There is no point of rest – there is either progress or regress. So, enough with talking, let’s turn to work!
