Opensource Drawing Tool

15 Dec

Inkscape is a professional vector graphics editor for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It’s free and open source. I downloaded it and have it a try. If you are looking for Photoshop then this is not your tool. However if you are looking for a good tool similar to Illustrator then this is closer.

Etymology Is A Good First Step

13 Dec

If you are in a conversation and you don’t know the answer, where do you go? Have you considered looking up the origin? Find the key term mentioned and look up it’s Etymology. Etymologies are not definitions; they’re explanations of what our words meant and how they sounded 600 or 2,000 years ago. If you want to have a good conversation, start with the etymology.

Here is something I looked up on Etymoline. The word “Volcano” originated in the 1610s, from Italian vulcano “burning mountain,” from Latin Vulcanus “Vulcan,” Roman god of fire, also “fire, flames, volcano” (see Vulcan). The name was first applied to Mt. Etna by the Romans, who believed it was the forge of Vulcan. Earlier form in English was volcan (1570s), from French.

Next time you are in a conversation and you want to contribute – think about looking up the etymology of a keyword in the conversation.

List of types of everything. I found a site that just builds lists of stuff called Types List. For example, you can find a lists of heavy metal music, porpoises, electron microscopes, dolphins, christmas trees, music, bass guitars, wine, alternative energy sources and apartments to just name a few. The next time you need a list, first stop here and you won’t need to go anywhere else.

Don’t Forget To Reply

6 Nov

How do you remember to reply to someone on email? Do you find yourself forgetting? The trick I do is hit reply on my phone to start a response, hit cancel and then save as draft. Then I go back later when I am ready and complete the drafts. Then I send them all at once. I have heard other friends use flags and go back. I tried this method too but the draft box method has worked best for me. How do you not forget? Do you respond immediately?
