comment How to use the second brain of the Stack Exchange network in a productive way?
say you want to introduce yourself into javascript programming. Alot of knowledge already here. Asking question as a beginner would probably result in alot of duplicates. So what are the best options/methods/3rd party tools i have to find the important Q&A for a JS newbie in minimum time on different SE sites? As a newbie you dont know what actually the interesting and important questions/problems are. Thats what i like so much on SE relative to e.g. a long detailed book costing alot of time/money. Is there e.g. a hack to search with google for tagged/high rated Q&A on several SE sites?

comment Does having an office with a window view increases my productivity?
+1 somehow like this question, despite its imo hard to answer with proven arguments...you have any hints or suspicions beside the light factor? I think it may damage motivation & creativity looking only at a wall & screen for hours. I often look out of the window when brainstorming, imo i have the best ideas, when not staring at the problem. But this i pretty subjective. I wouldnt work in a office without windows for years, simply doesnt fit me...

@jeanne you mean meta.stackoverflow? Isnt meta.SO more for feature requests? Probably i get more answers there as more traffic. Personally everything saving time and optimizing knowledge managment is productivity related to me. Thats why i asked here (and cause of this meta.productivity.stackexchange.com/questions/120/… :) In best case we get a bit more traffic here ;) ) Also im asking explicitly for 3rd party services/apps and not only SE built in methods to manage SE knowledge base.

comment Does a Trackball make you more productive?
+1 true, learning curve seems flat for some, but addiction level is often high. Many keep buying only business notebooks with trackpoint (Thinkpad, Dell) if they get used to it. Esp. if you can type very fast, constantly moving hands to mouse/touchpad costs alot time, its like a third leg for turbo programmers :) I do even firefox gestures with my trackpoint. For Mindmapping/LaTeX Coding its really perfect as you often have to hit in between a toolbar button or change edit position.

@Alexandre amazon.com/ThinkPad-USB-Keyboard-with-TrackPoint/dp/B002ONCC6G its expensive yes, but what is the alternative?! ;) I work on a Thinkpad Notebook, so its built in. Also your index finger is more accurate/faster than your thumb for touchpad/trackball, at least to me

comment Does the “30/30 Minute Work Cycle” really work?
+1 in university its pretty common to interrupt a 90min double lecture by 5 min lasting pause. No one can concentrate in one piece for 90 min, but making 30 min pause interrupts the whole learning process, so here im 100% sure its more counterproductive
