Four Macworld contributors share their tips for easier file management. I especially like Brett Terpstra‘s flagging rule for Hazel – I’ve seen how these types of visual prompts can help people create better habits and I’m a big fan of the concept of training your computer to gently nudge you into doing the right thing.
The winners of the Creative Professionals Giveaway have all been contacted and their prizes are now on the way. Congratulations to all of the people below – and many thanks to all of you for making it another a great success!

I’m in the process of relaunching Veritrope as a place where technologists and creative professionals from all over the world can meet, learn from one another, and share their tools and inspiration. Last month, I reached out to the hardcore Mac people to find out what they like (and need), and now it’s time to hear from all you Creative Professionals!
I need your help to do that well. So, for this week only, I’ve put together a Giveaway to thank people who complete a 7 question survey. Everyone is welcome to enter, but I really want to hear from designers, writers, non-profit workers, and artists.
Some fantastic prizes are in the mix for all you Veritrope supporters, including:
- Nuance’s Dragon Dictate 3 for OS X
- Fujitsu’s ScanSnap S1100 Portable Document Scanner
- An Alfred Powerpack
- TextExpander by Smile Software
- PDFpen Pro by Smile Software
- DocumentSnap.com Guides for Scanning
- “60 Mountain Lion Tips” by David Sparks and Brett Terpstra
The widget below is the entry form.
You get 5 chances to win for completing a very short survey.
(Seriously — It’s only 7 questions).
Extra Chances to Win
If you like, you can also get extra entries for following Veritrope on Twitter, App.Net, or signing up for the mailing list.
I’m really trying to reach out to as many smart, creative people as I can in order to find out what they want and need. If you’re lucky enough to know some people matching that description, you’ll get up to 10 bonus chances to win for each one who completes a survey (See the “Share This” button at the bottom of the entry form to get your special link to send them).
Thanks for your help — and good luck to everyone!
