Really great new post from +Bill Slawski on Apple's possible foray into web search.  It looks like the Topsy acquisition is (or would) play a big part in this.
A few days ago, Search Engine Land reported that Apple Confirms Their Web Crawler: Applebot in which Apple admitted that the web crawling program was being used to help with products such as Siri and Spotlight Suggestions, and Apple pointed Search Engine Land to an Apple Support help page for Applebot. Appleinsider followed up reporting …

Self-help gurus are always promoting the value of a morning ritual.  It helps you “awake with a purpose” or “focus on you”, they say.  For the most part, it makes sense, but for the past 8 years there has been one part of my morning ritual that I’ve grown to despise.  This: Does your inbox look …

Been using Attentiv and it has really helped our productivity during meetings.  It organizes agendas and minutes and allows to push out a question that everyone can answer at the same time. Worth a shot if you have more than a couple meetings a week:  http://attentiv.com/
Attentiv is the platform for effective meetings. Build an agenda, take notes, assign action items, automatically generate meeting minutes and most importantly, get real time feedback.

Question:  *What's your favorite lesser-known productivity or efficiency tool?*

I'll start with a vote for Momentum, a Chrome browser plugin I heard mentioned on the +Tim Ferriss podcast.  I'm not affiliated with it in any way, but I started using it a week ago and love it. When you open a new tab in Chrome, it shows a beautiful picture and what you've defined as your focus for the day.

It is a nice, subtle reminder of the big tasks that you need to tackle that day.
Replace new tab page with a personal dashboard featuring todo, weather, and inspiration.

Introduction
I'm passionate about the web.  If I'm not working on a project, I'm tinkering or testing or reading other people's research and case studies.  I love online reputation management because it is one of the ultimate online challenges.  I love search engine optimization because I'm competing against other smart people, head-to-head, for top rankings.  I love social media because of the connections (and also because it can be fun manipulating it in your favor).  I love this stuff...
Bragging rights
I have 2 daughters and another one on the way. If I survive being outnumbered 4-to-1 by the ladies in my home, that will be something to brag about.
