Effective Procrastination with HiveMinder
If you're like most people, you've got dozens of things that need doing. Work, shopping, chores, programming, hobbies, tax, holidays, bills, and so on. You may have tried to keep a to-do list, but found it rapidly grew to the point of being unmanageable.
Paul Fenwick will demonstrate the use of the free HiveMinder.com to-do service to both manage tasks and to procrastinate effectively, allowing you to focus only on the tasks that really need to be done. We'll see how to manage tasks via the web, via-email, and how to be really efficient via instant messenger.
To conclude, we'll see how it's possible to add new features to HiveMinder and some tricks and tips for doing so.
