I love the internet. A minute ago I stumbled across a blog post on organization I wanted to keep, and I thought, “I bet I could write an Applescript so that I could mail something to myself at a particular address, set up a rule in Apple Mail to run that Applescript, and have it automatically copied into Yojimbo with the appropriate title and tags.” And then a second later I thought, “But before I do that, I should look to see if someone’s already done it.”

So I typed “applescript copy yojimbo” into Google, and lo and behold, it was the first result.

Or maybe this isn’t actually laziness. Maybe it’s being productive like a ninja. A ninja kitten. Yeah.

I loves me some internet laziness.

    I’ve started to write Greasemonkey scripts, checked Google and found them. I have no problem with not re-inventing the wheel.

    I think you are being productive. We have entered an age when knowing the answer is less important than having the right skills to find the answer. I’m glad the script was of some use to you…
