Can fonts make your brief 1.5% more persuasive?

From Errol Morris’ NY Times blog:

Baskerville is different from the rest. I’d call it a 1.5% advantage, in that that’s how much higher agreement is with it relative to the average of the other fonts. That advantage may seem small, but if that was a bump up in sales figures, many online companies would kill for it. The fact that font matters at all is a wonderment.

Supercharge Your Paperless Print to PDF Workflow

I’ve taken a tip from David Sparks’ Paperless ebook on using an Automator Print Plugin workflow to rename a file and move it to a folder - in this case named “Action” - in the process of printing it to PDF. Super slick! Sparks named the workflow “Rename -> Action”.  The resulting print plugin workflow resides in the drop down menu of the PDF button in the OS X Print dialog box.

The problem for me is that I don’t like having to use my mouse to access the print plugin from the menu - which is how one would access this print plugin. Here’s where the Keyboard Maestro workflow comes in. By using the recipe pictured above, I can activate the entire print to PDF and Automator workflow with one simple keyboard shortcut.

Print to PDF Nirvana!

The One Shortcoming of a Moleskine

I love Moleskine. In fact, for all that I love technology, nothing is quite as satisfying as pen on paper. It must go back to my days as an artist. But the one thing that always bothered me about a Moleskine was the lack of a good place to clip a pen. Quiver solves this elegantly. High-res
