I was asked this last night at a Memorial Day weekend party and I actually wasn’t able to answer it immediately:
What percent of your work per day is done on your mobile device?
After thinking about it for a second I said that on any given day during an 8 to 9 hour work day I probably spend at least 90 minutes doing work from my mobile device.
I would imagine that it’s only going to increase over time as I bust out that iPad that’s collecting dust…
How about you? What would be your answer?
I’ve seen more than my fair share already of some mobile tweets of people’s Memorial Day vacation experiences and a few of them have been, *ahem*, “questionable” at best.
Please remember that there are things that you simply should not tweet about and there are definitely some things that you should not twitpic.
Please, for our sake and yours. Spare us.
If you are a non-profit organization, then chances are you handle sensitive information. You have accounting or HR related data for employees, background check data for volunteers (I hope!), and financial donation data (credit card, checking account numbers, etc.) from your donors.
And it’s your job to protect it.
In most cases it’s easy to recognize when sensitive data is safe and when it is vulnerable. But I came across this video the other day that made me stop and realize that it isn’t the obvious exploits I should be worried about, but rather, the hidden ones.
Check it out:
Sure, I’ve got an iPad. But I’ll admit that it’s nothing really revolutionary.
In fact, it’s not really that much of a step forward in terms of my everyday productivity and entertainment. Honestly, I barely use it for work.
But, that’s ok. I’ve got a very particular use for it and it does just fine with what I need it to do. As a result it meets my expectations and it’s been worth the financial investment.
But here are two technologies that I wish I had right now that I think would most certainly impact the way that I work and my productivity. Please, can you come any sooner?
I’d imagine that there are more than a handful of “starters” or entrepreneurs in the evangelical web space that read this blog (or one of the others in our network) but not all of you guys have experience with startups and the like.
Perhaps you need a bit of guidance from those that have come before?
A website perhaps? Well, this might be one to check out:
