Prod Wed #1 (QuickSilver iCal Events)

So Chris Conrey had started tweeting one Wednesday about kicking ass. He used the hashtag #productivitywednesday or something. The meme started to catch on internally. I have been on a mission of late to help accelerate getting things done. While working with our interns I started my drive for TextMate Tip of the Day. I am also going to start a Unix Tip of the Day because it’s another under utilized tool by many young hackers. Then I started thinking of the hundreds of cool tricks that exist and come across my path.

So I decided to release one cool thing per week in honor of Productivity Wednesday. This first one highlights one of my favorite time accelerators Quicksilver. It shows you how to add an event to iCal or Google Calendar via Quicksilver. Enjoy!

  1. Oops – just discovered that if you add Google Calendar events this way, any default alerts you have set up won’t apply to the new event (like they do when you use Quick Add in a browser). This means no SMS notification (or whatever else you’re used to getting) before the event.

    Something to be aware of, so you’re not caught off guard.
