Tim Ferriss: Technology is a Great Slave but a Terrible Master

We have more productivity applications than we can shake a stick at, but do we have the right attitude and aptitude to use them well? I struggle with this all the time and I know most people in Silicon Valley do the same.

Tim Ferriss, the author of The 4-Hour Workweek is among a small group of people that can help.

I first met Tim Ferriss when his top selling book was but a big pile of uncorrected proofs and he was asking for advice on how best to promote his book. This was just a few months before publication. I shared with him what I knew and said he should have started months ago.

He took to the online world like a duck to water and his is an excellent case study into how to build sales to the top of the New York Times, WSJ and a dozen other lists, including Amazon - and without doing a book tour.

Here is the excellent Tim Ferriss on a recent episode of Fast Company's WorkFast.TV with Robert Scoble and Shel Israel. I recommend that you skip the Ferriss-free introductory banter and dive in around the 5 minute mark.
