Organize your digital life. With +Peter Walsh.
 
In Episode #5 of the +Springpad Show, I will be talking to internationally recognized organization and clutter control expert +Peter Walsh about how to organize your digital life. 

Is your desk a mess? Do you have stacks of magazines sitting around with recipes you've long since forgotten about? When you save ideas, information and to-dos to digital organizers, not only does it help declutter your home and office, but it’s also easier to organize and get things done when you’re ready. Peter has lots of tips to share, so tune in to the show hear them all!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Devin Bramhall. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Wow! I want to be in Edward's class! Love most the excitement in the group: wouldn't it be nice if we could hang onto this in organisations?

Introduction

 

I’m Edward Boches, Professor of the Practice of Advertising at Boston University where I teach advertising creativity with an emphasis on digital and emerging media. It’s a joy to be in the classroom with the next generation of innovators and creators.

I am also the part-time Chief Innovation Officer (formerly Chief Creative Officer and Chief Social Media Officer) at Mullen, an Ad Age A-List agency I’ve helped build and lead for nearly 30 years. In recent years I’ve served as the agency’s resident hacker, messing with the system just enough to inspire needed change without screwing anything up.

May true love remains generating creative ideas, so I maintain a few additional outlets for that pursuit as well.

Oh yes, almost forgot. I’m also a dad, husband, road cyclist (not a racer) and a board member at Spring Partners, the people who invented the cool Springpad app.

I’m young enough to have kids in grade school. And old enough to have fallen in love with all things media from admiring the print ads in Life magazine back in the 1960s.  Somewhere in between then and now I’ve been a newspaper reporter, speechwriter, account executive, public relations counsel, copywriter and creative director. I’ve been lucky enough to have helped build a full-service ad agency; worked with dozens of noteworthy brands; launched high-tech and internet start-ups; collaborated with world famous directors, photographers and editors; co-written television commercials with Ellen DeGeneres; presented ideas to Oprah Winfrey (she actually liked them); created award winning websites; and launched an emerging social media practice.

Best of all, I’ve had the chance to constantly embrace change and try new things.  Somehow I’ve survived for 30 years in a business that typically eats its young. Woody Allen was right when he said, “Ninety percent of success is just showing up.” Anyway, I’m still here. Who could leave now? The explosion of technology, the changing face of communications, and the opportunity to invent new applications make this the most exciting time ever to be in the marketing business.

A theater. A stage. A play. Lights. Actors. A play. A p l a y. A PLAY! A sermon. A monolog. An island. Water. A play. Actors. A play. Made out of words. Brilliant words. And performances. Riveting performances. At Harbor Stage Company. (Just Harbor Stage Company, not The Harbor Stage Company.) What do you do? The audience. Do you applaud? Do you make a donation? Or do you choose at act, too. Write a letter. Or is a letter too anachronistic in the digital age. OK, perhaps an email. A small act. But an act nonetheless. Last night was amazing. Brenda, your writing is stunning and lyrical and funny. And btw, despite Stacy’s doubts, I totally believed the witch story. Stacy, your physical performances are amazing; your face and eyes alone create make your performances unforgettable. Robert, don’t worry you don’t belong at Epcot Center. And while you’re guitar playing is only OK, I would pay $32.00 to see you anytime. Jonathan, your two monologs could not have been delivered any more perfectly. The timing was flawless. And the sermon? Well, I had no choice. I had to write this letter of thanks.
