The Act is Back at Whiskey’s!

November 17, 2006

The Act is now on location again at Whiskey’s Smokehouse, 885 Boylston Street, Boston, Mass. (across from The Prudential Center). Whiskey’s was a great location for us back in August. It is a really fun bar, and there is always the chance of an occasional celebrity sighting. We caught Matt Damon there checking out The Act with a friend.

Napping: The Ninth Habit of Effective People

November 17, 2006

I thought it was a joke when I first saw Merlin Mann’s blog post about software that helps you take a nap to increase productivity. I mean, “ultradian rhythms?” That sounds like something out of Star Trek. But apparently, it’s for real. The software is called “Pzizz,” and thanks in part to Merlin, it’s the hottest thing since espresso.

I have downloaded a copy, but I have not yet gotten up the nerve to try it. I can’t figure out what I would put on my time sheet. 🙂

Update 11/27/2006: I tried a Pzizz nap at home this weekend and it worked great! However, I still don’t want to risk napping at work. I don’t think Starbucks has anything to worry about just yet.
