I’m taking a break from dealing with my browser tabs. It’s completely out-of-control insane. I’m making progress, but I have a lot more ot go through. Almost every time I close a tab without doing something, I command-shift-t to open the tab back up and bookmark it in Pinboard. I have over 30,000 bookmarks in Pinboard, dating back to the early aughts thanks to del.icio.us. I’m a digital packrat hoarder, but it really does come in handy for recalling information. My rule is simple – if I think there’s a chance I might want to refer back to it later, I bookmark and tag it. Tagging is essential. It’s not something one goes back to do. If you don’t tag things going in, well, good luck to you.

I’ve got half a mind to actually run this on my inbox. Somewhere in my personal archives, perhaps in storage are CDs with all of my backed-up email beginning in the 90s. Back then I was using Eudora. Kind of unbelievable that I archived all of that email. It would be awesome to import all of that into Gmail at some point so I don’t have to go hunting for it.
