The One Thing, simply put, features one thing on the internet that captured my attention and that I believe is worthy of yours.
The thought of going paperless is as tempting as it is terrifying. Thankfully David Sparks (a.k.a. MacSparky) offers up a roadmap that even the tech terrified can follow to help eliminate as much paper as possible from their lives.
Long time readers of the site know that I have a contentious relationship with paper. No only did I start reading the book immediately, I finished all 27,000 words in a single sitting. It’s a useful, logical and thorough look at every aspect of going from paper laden to paper free. I’ve made great strides in my own paperless workflow, but I still picked up a ton of tips and tactics.
Aside from being well written and helpful, it’s also a beautiful experience that sets the standard for the new iBooks platform. With 32 screencasts and a slew of photo galleries and interactive images, it feels more like an interactive learning experience than a book.
If you’re even remotely curious about reducing paper or want to eliminate it entirely, Paperless is for you. And it’s just $5 in the iBookstore.
