Getting the most out of this Planner.

Join PCM ADVENTURES - Evernote public shared notebook - get your editable version

(It contains the planner note placing it directly into your Evernote account. The text below is included at the bottom of the planner. This can be deleted once you have copied it) 

This note is really well formatted note. The table contained here is a series of fixed width columns, flexible hight rows with cells. Each cell has been divided into three with a cell border surrounding each cell. * If you insert your cursor before a date number and TAB though the table you can observe this.
To enter data and maintain the integrity of the table’s rows and columns the data you insert must be entered in to the 3rd cell *
Just to clarify each row contains 3 visibly outlined cells. Each cell is segmented in to 3.
  1. date
  2. day
  3. empty cell for planned activity or note 
This note is locked so if you want to use the planner you need to create a duplication and move it to a Notebook of your own.
Making an editable version for yourself
In your notes list. (I have mine set to card view.) Right Click this note (ctrl + click for mac) > select Copy to Notebook > select a Notebook > click Copy
Using your version of the PCM 2015 Year Planner - Evernote Year Planner
Locate the “PCM 2015 Year Planner - Evernote Year Planner” in the Notebook you elected to create a copy to. Open the note and provide a personalised name for your 2015 Planner changing the original title to differentiate it from this one. If you think you might want to use it for multiple projects make the first version you create a MASTER and duplicate future copies from your MASTER document. Once you have changed the title remove this text about ‘Getting the most out of this planner’. You now have an Evernote planning template for 2015.
The origins of ideas and giving credit where credit is due is a vital part of my social technology practice. I’d like to say that I created this planner but I did not. I discovered it when I was looking for a planner for use within Evernote at the start of 2014. Miss Spink on Tech, a primary school teacher for Melbourne Australia created a series of Evernote planning templates and shared them via a Notebook just as I am doing here at the start of 2015. I only used the one I have repurposed for 2015. 
Additional blog post...
I looked to see if an updated version had been created but sadly at the posting of this post there isn't. I have created a PCM ADVENTURES notebook and placed the repurposed for 2015 Year Planner within it, which I intend to make available to all existing PCM ADVENTURES.
The 2015 month by month templates are availible on the origonal authors new site.

This is your Post by Email address

Welcome back to the digital office! I spend far too much time online but since reframing my activities in terms of being an audience producer it makes much more sense. There is a lot of ambient monitoring to enable me to be authoritative in my chosen field and to maintain communication channels with fellow audience practitioners.

Productivity and efficient working practice plus the management, maintenance and monitoring and of my own digital toolkit and footprint are the items I use to advise my clients. PCM is a practice what you preach practice.

This post has been made using the post via email feature available in Typepad (my primary blogging platform) I've recently done some house keeping from the dashboard. I'm always dubious about the resulting posts using 'via email' options. The last thing I want is a mess of additional stray text like an email signature to contaminate my post. I decided the only way to find out what results from a 'via email' post to Typepad is to do one.

All this was appended to my post!*

Dear pcmcreative,

Here is the secret email address for your "PCM creative in action" blog. Reply to this

Don't give this out to anyone unless you want them to post by email to
your blog too!

So ensuring a clear email is probably best! But now I know. Posting 'via email' also doesn't assign a category or cross post to my social media accounts. It doesn't add keywords or generate an excerpt. 

In conclusion.
For a speedy update an email is a fast update option for this blog. For cloud composition a gateway app is probably going to be a better option. I had lined up Blogsy to provide this facility but I haven't really explored it properly. On my Mac, in a browser I like to post from the Typepad platform it gives me a sense of destination to carry out the task at hand; The writing of a blog post. I'm not always at my desk however so 'on the move' I'll be establishing a practice of using Blogsy for typepad.

Happy New Year... a PCM digital welcome to 2015.


I was wondering how folks were starting thier year.

I have recently moved out of my home of 15yrs after a 2 yr battle with neighbours in a nightmare neighbourhood. So I'm even more in digital limbo than ever. I continue to champion an Equity conciousness amonst fellow arts parctitioners.

I've followed with interest in 2014 the formation of a new association "Artists’ Union England" a new trade union for professional visual and applied artists. And I've continued converstaions about UK trade unions' adoption of online platforms with Simon Parry at Infobo who are developing cloud based platforms with other trade unions.

Simon has carried out research about unions and online presence since 2012 and currently Equity sits at... number 5 out of 45 who activily maintain a twitter account. Read the article here

Our website authority also features in Simon's research listing us coinsidentally also at number 5 having risen from 8th in 2013. Read the article here

Work wise I'm continuing my audience producer role with Audiences Europe Network and building social technology toolkits with performers and practitioners. My 2014 high light was a fully realised "Digital Audience Experience" enquiry with Arts and Audiences in Reykjavik, Iceland.

I'm in planning and prep mode until March. What about you?
