At The Sweet Setup:
Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.
Today’s victim, er, interviewee:
I am Sven Fechner, the writer, curator and internet harlequin behind SimplicityBliss and one of three pilots on the popular German tech podcast Der Übercast. The blog and I have been around for a while and both try to be helpful when it comes to personal productivity, creativity and, well, “technology things.” My writing keeps taking twist and turns, but the amount of people (still) stopping by my little corner on the interwebs reading about my “workflow” improvement efforts is humbling.
My main gig is being a Senior Sales Manager for a large, international IT company with responsibility for a team covering Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia. This makes my setup a little, but not too, different to others since my job requires me to travel quite a bit. My setup design principle is travel light. I need to blend in with corporate process and IT policies (setup design principle: not too extreme experiments) while still maintaining a “think (and work) different” approach (setup design principle: best tools to work creatively).
