We’ll be recording a new episode of Lifehack Live tonight (Thursday, Jan 3) at 8 pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT -0800, I think). You can listen live at BlogTalkRadio or download the whole show on Monday. We’ll be taking calls from listeners for the last 15 minutes or so of the show — call in at (347) 838-8244 (NOTE: that is not a toll-free number). Skype works great for this, by the way. If you check out the live stream using Internet Explorer 7, there’s supposed to be a click-to-talk function that will allow you to call in using your PC and a headset; since I can’t listen to the show while I’m hosting it, I can’t vouch for how well that works, or if it’s there at all.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas
Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:
- Gather new material, both specific and general.
- The Mental Digestive Process
- Drop it
- Poof, the idea appears
- Work it
Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
