How Do You Start The Day?

Loic asks how do you start the day online… this is how this blogger/marketer/entrepreneur does it…

Here is my sequence in general, but it does change depending on the day’s priorities. It’s a mix of reading, replying and chatting…

  1. check email, both gmail and Outlook – scan and empty inbox
  2. check Dell.com and thedailylark
  3. scan Google blog search for Dell terms and my name
  4. check the company chat (which is mostly outside the company)
  5. scan Google reader
  6. Fire-up Tweetdeck and see what is happening
  7. Say hi to my community on Twitter, Facebook etc…
  8. Fire-up Skype and see who is lurking about…
  9. Post to thedailylark…

Normally takes about 30 minutes or so…

HP and IBM should be very afraid – Dell’s latest PowerEdge R610 – featuring Intel’s new ‘Nehalem’ Xeon 5550 – sets new standards for rack server design.

MAC Vs. PC

Love how the debate is raging around price. I use both. And love both. But Macs are a luxury item by any standard. Love the ad… shame she bought an HP though…
