In a rut? Need some inspiration for your next idea? You will spend no better 5 minutes than reading Austin Kleon’s post Steal Like an Artist. The self-proclaimed “writer who draws” has the seeds for his next book in a presentation of “10 things I wish I’d heard when I was in college.” Aimed at artists and writers, it’s still very useful in business and is great web content since you can read it two ways:
1) Read the sparse slides (a 90-second read).
2) Read the slides with notes (a 5-minute read).
I’ll stay away from summarizing (I mean, it’s just 90 seconds of your time), but my favorite...
We've been thinking about and working with Office 365 for months. There are a lot of services you get for one low monthly fee. (Watch this episode about Office 365 on the Office Show). We wanted to create some Office Casual videos about it too, so, to start, what subject would you like me to cover in the next Office Casual? Vote in the...
With any new program, you need some help in understanding it. The Office.com Getting Started site has plenty of info and guides for beginners, or those just updating to a newer version of Office.

Last week we interviewed customers about Office during the Microsoft Store celebration for the first anniversary of Office 2010. William wanted to talk to us about all his years with Office.
A cool ingredient of the Microsoft Store is a community space where events occur. It’s where we set up shop to record videos during the Microsoft Store celebration of the first anniversary of Office 2010. But local business groups and organizations use the space as a high-tech meeting area. We talked to Chad Mack, the Community Development Manager at the Bellevue Square store.
Let me show you how the powerful new Microsoft Translator raises the bar for translating three ways: on the Web, for Office 2007 & 2003, and a unique translation widget for your site. See the links below to get the particular tool you want.
A co-worker, Steven Thomas (no relation, honest), recently shared his thoughts after taking a workshop here at Microsoft on keeping projects moving forward. With his permission, I wanted to pass along the “good parts” of the workshop that expand on some ideas in John Kotter's book A Sense of Urgency. Take it away, Steven:
Bring the outside in: Too much internal focus leads to stagnation and complacency – to make things happen, you sometimes need an external perspective.
Behave with urgency every day: Urgency doesn’t have to mean scurrying around in a panic – it can also mean streamlining what you do and respecting people’s time, so folks can focus on results and success...
This Office Casual video appeared yesterday in the post Office 2003 Turns Eight: Time to Upgrade. Below the video are links to the various Office 2010 features talk about in the video.
Is your PowerPoint looking a bit ho-hum, boring, or just plain dead-on-arrival? Jazz your slides up --and deliver your information better--with SmartArt. Let me show you how-to preview and create better slides in seconds with PowerPoint 2007. --Doug Thomas
