Replace Yourself with a Small Shell Script

July 26, 2010

A very geek post to start this week.

Hilary Mason is a computer science professor, a very interesting character. At IgniteNYC she gave a 5 minute talk on replacing yourself with a small shell script to simplify your life.

She ponders the idea that boring e-mail tasks like follow ups should be automated, humans are humans, and we forget things. I love the idea that a shell script can handle all the day to day functions we find so boring. Hilary is a true geek, please be warned, but she may be the next person to make your life easier.
