a wicked little email attachment manager.

Email attachments were one of the 9 levels of email hell, in my opinion. But no longer, thanks to MetisMe, a wicked little Gmail attachment manager. MetisMe wrangles and manages all of your email attachments, in an intuitive and user-friendly way. The app does these very handy things:
  1. Creates an attachment stack — of all of your attachments, all nice and neat.
  2. Makes it quick and easy to search said attachments.
  3. Connects to your cloud apps of choice (Drive, Box, Dropbox, EVERNOTE!, etc.) — you can send attachments straight there with a click.
  4. You can set rules to automagically send attachments to certain spots. Yes.
MetisMe is free. It is awesome. Currently available as a Chrome and Firefox extension. You should check it out. P.S. The MetisMe blog is pretty cool, too — lots of productivity and email marketing hacks and tips.

links i like.


It’s Friday. And time for another round of links I like.

This week’s links? Inspired by my obsession with books and reading.

The links:

10 books for 21st century presenters and storytellers. (I’ve read nos. 5, 6, and 7 so far.)

5 must-read books for every entrepreneur. (I’ve read no. 5; no. 2 appears on the list above, as well.)

the year’s best books (2013) on writing and creativity, according to Maria Popova. (I’ve read nos. 2, 5, and 8.)

100 free books for Kindle/e-readers. (I’ve read all in the children’s category, and many of the others.)

41 books on time management/productivity, business + more. (A few titles appear on lists above. I’ve read nos. 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 17, 18, 20, 24, 26, 29, 33, 34, and 36, and a few others are already on my Kindle, ready for reading.)

A random yet interesting list of books on a range of interpersonal communication topics. (Having a BA and MA in communication, I’ve read a bunch of these. Some I’ve never heard of, nor am I likely to read.)

If you read a lot of books (as I do), you may find this helpful (as I did). +1: mind-mapping and implementing.
