mannThis week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to writer, speaker, blogger and student of the creative mind Merlin Mann.
In 2004, Mann founded 43Folders, a blog and community focused on tips, tricks, tools and techniques designed to improve one’s own productivity and organizational skills. In late 2008, he took the site in a brand new direction, instead directing his efforts toward the habits and thoughts of humanity’s best creators and figuring out what can be learned and implemented from examining them. Mann also happens to be the creator of other such internet ventures as Kung Fu Grippe, 5ives and one-third of the hugely successful comedy podcast You Look Nice Today: A Journal of Emotional Hygiene.

The Marketplace of Ideas every Thursday at noon.
