We've been Lifehacked... and it feels great!

Why have we been Lifehacked? Well, because of the amount of people who came here from the Lifehacker blog... it's an analogy in geek talk when a page has been slashdotted due to a short info on the Slashdot. This info can kill servers and make pages offline. We survived. Our downloads are going strong and we're more than happy and welcome everyone! What exactly happened? Thanks to a chain reaction and a blog post on jkOnTheRun (thanks James!) and later Lifehacker (thanks Jason!) and Web Worker Daily (thanks Scott!), we've received thousands of new readers to our Productive! Magazine. Thanks everyone who came and downloaded our first issue of the Productive! Magazine - please post your comments and send us your feedback. We're already working on the second issue and we want to make it even better! BTW, we're approaching 15K downloads as of writing this blog post... in just a little over four days... isn't that incredible? Your excited and psyched, - Michael Sliwinski (Editor) P.S. The downloads are going strong, but our mailing list provider is experiencing some issues with email queuing so if you've signed up for our mailing list and haven't received your confirmation message, you will in a couple of hours. Sorry for this delay. If you have downloaded the magazine, do sign up for our mailing list and you'll receive updates on the new issue.

I'm a big fan of GTD and agree that there's always a need for constant re-inspiration regarding organization and productivity. Your magazine looks great, but I was surprised at the poor copy editing of the David Allen interview. Some paragraphs had such confusing typos and lack of punctuation that I had to read them a few times to decipher them. Hope that's just beginner's glitch! I want to support this magazine.

I'm sorry this has been your experience with the David Allen's interview. It's the first issue and maybe we just rushed to much to have it out. Again, maybe it was our excitement to have the magazine ready. We'll try to do better on the editing side of the magazine next time. I'm hoping that you still enjoyed the magazine and the interview despite these few typos.

Claire, I must agree with your comments about the poor editing on the David Allen interview. Michael, I am sure you are receptive of constructive feedback. Please do take Claire's and my feedback as such. If you do need volunteer reviewers, I'd be more than happy to help. I am enjoying the magazine so far! Congrats. I can only imagine how much work it was to put together. But, heck, now you are pals with the guru himself, David Allen!

We've corrected some of the most obvious errors in the magazine and uploaded it again so you might want to download it again and see the changes. Thanks for your great feedback - we need constructive feedback to know where should we be going in the future. BTW, David is a very cool guy if you get to know him personally :-)

I'd also be happy to do some volunteer proofreading! I kind of do it involuntarily whenever I read, so it's nice when it's for a good cause. Thanks for that suggestion, Maurice! Michael, with all the great press and enthusiasm you've been generating, I'm sure the magazine will work out its initial kinks very soon. Keep up the good work! Claire
