When you are stuck, use “Oblique strategies – defeat creative block”

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/10

Sometimes you are stuck. Then this often helps, even outside the music industry:

[WayBack] Oblique strategies – defeat creative block: Draw random Oblique Strategy cards to break through creative block.

These are disruptive which is the whole point being stuck.

Obey the first and only rule: pick the first card and apply what it says.

  • Do NOT fall for the urge to draw multiple cards.
  • Do NOT make a list of all cards then choose from it.

Both above failures kill the randomness of the above strategy.

More on them at [WayBack] Oblique Strategies – Wikipedia

Logitech remotes for presenting

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/01

A few links on Logitech remotes for presenters.

I like how the spotlight can highlight portions of the screen, but I wish it had the LCD display timer of the R800 and R700.

The big problem of the Spotlight seems to be the stability of the Logitech software, both on Windows and on MacOS.

The R series (R800/R700/R500/R400) have lasers that do not reflected well by modern big screens.

A great review of the various presenters is at [WayBack] What’s the Best Logitech Pointer? – R400 vs R700 vs R800 – Sky Tech Lasers.
