Experiments in Designing User Interface and Organizational Techniques

I am interested in the human aspects of technology and technique.  I firmly believe that technology should enhance the human experience, and should be designed in a user-centric manner.  The same goes with business and organizational processes.  Here are a few of my more major experiments and thoughts on user interface design and organizational techniques.

Task Logs

Task logs are a time management technique I developed for managing working on projects in time fragments.  This technique is based on how operating systems handle switching between tasks and handling interrupts.  I discuss my initial experiment in an article, followed by a follow-up on my findings.  In summary you record the current task, your next task and any additional notes to help you restart a task quickly.  I found this technique handy and helped me to make mental notes when I’m interrupted in a task.
