I am a computer geek with interest in Java, C#, and Apache Solr, business models, visualization and whatever else catches my fancy.

I wrote a book on Solr: http://bit.ly/ZPSSt4 and maintain useful Solr resources at http://www.solr-start.com/

comment How can I organize my daily deals emails?
The original questions mentioned specials that I believe are only available in USA and Canada. Yipit covers those locations as well. I don't know what the special deals are for other parts of the world.

comment Well organized, still overloaded?
The idea as Dennis S says was definitely in the audio book version. I think the specific bit was that David asked the 'which level' question and the executive basically thanked him for his time. Like the old joke about plumber charging $0.50 for hitting the pipe with a hammer and $99.50 for knowing where to hit. David provided the 'where'.

comment How to efficiently use time during a long bus trip?
There is no 'answer' here, it should probably be more of a wiki of things to do in a restricted environment with weight limit. Then, I could add learning to tie knots to the list of suggestions (requirements: one book, one string). :-)

comment Peer review: my personal productivity system.
The matrix comes from a book called Political Savvy (politicalsavvy.com - ignore the awful website colours, the book is amazing). With the time allocation, do you actually get the time you blocked or you get interrupted? If you get interrupted and have to shift stuff around anyway, it may not be worth it beyond the normal Pomodoros.
