The Internet is a pinnacle of man-kind that has advanced our society far more than anything that has preceded it—I’m looking at you, the wheel—by making information globally available. It has the added benefit of providing a reason to employ millions of people across the globe. If you have a typical, American 9–5 job, there’s a good chance that you have an e-mail address. E-mails sent to that address can be accessed anywhere that has a mail protocol—including our friend the WiFi fridge. Bottom line: your work can follow you everywhere.
Automation for the Common Man
We have these tools at-hand to help our lives and we sometimes don’t take advantage of them—one said toosl is the wonderful website If This Then That. IFTTT—as it’s commonly known—allows users to take several online services and connect them together without zero coding knowledge. It’s extremely helpful in doing really mundane tasks that are important, but stuff you wish a robot could do for you. Here are some of the tasks—known on IFTTT as recipes—that I employ in my every day life.
Write it Down
Always make sure that you write down thoughts that are funny. You want to make sure you hang on to all the funny things you think of. It’s as simple as that: write down anything funny that comes into your head. Don’t be lazy. —Mitch Hedberg
