I’m involved in something called the Product Design Guild in San Francisco. It’s pretty cool — we talk about ideas, and do guerrilla usability testing of concepts. There’s a really smart group of people there, and they know great products only come out of testing an idea over and over again.

The holidays make for a crazy time of year. You’re spending time with family, traveling, maybe enjoying some winter weather. All of this can help you create wonderful blog posts.
Here are a couple tips on how to let your blog shine as you head into the new year.

Business is noisy.
Business is full of people worrying loudly about projects, process, and other people. These people have opinions and they share them all over the place — all the time. This collective chatter is part of the daily regimen of a healthy business, but this chatter will bury the individual voice unless someone pays attention.

You’re supposed to store vital documents in a fireproof box or keep them in a safe-deposit box, but how many of us actually do that? We may not need these papers often, but when we do need them, we really need them. You need vital documents to sell your car, travel overseas, apply for a job, get through an audit, refinance your house, and more.

This was a bit of a “duh” moment for me, but probably worth mentioning, despite being a “Captain Obvious” post.
I’m a big fan of what Apple’s doing with Xcode 4, but in my opinion it’s just not ready for production use yet. I’m using it for the book and occasional forays, but not for regular client work yet. However, I also run my machine using the 64-bit kernel, which means I can’t use Shark without rebooting. I’ve been really looking forward to the Time Profiler template in the 4.0 version of Instruments as well as the two new OpenGL ES templates and the Energy Diagnostics template.
But, while grumbling about their lack in the current release version of Instruments, it struck me: you don’t have to launch Instruments from the same folder you launch Xcode from. You can launch Instruments separately and attach it to a running process in the Simulator or on an attached iPhone. That means, you can launch Instruments from the Xcode4 folder instead of from the Developer folder. This allows you to develop and debug with the less-shiny-but-production-ready Xcode 3.x and also use the new Instruments templates like Time Profiler, OpenGL ES, and Energy Diagnostics.

Job interviews can be nerve-racking. You have one shot to convince a potential employer that they should hire you instead of dozens (and maybe hundreds) of other qualified candidates. In this tough job market, a man has to be on top of his game during interviews if he wants a chance to land the job.
