The Last Tip You’ll Ever Need


Tips, tricks, techniques, and tutorials. The four T’s that comprise so much of what I read and write about publishing tech on the Web. If you want/love/need/crave information about Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, and Quark, then what I’m about to share with you is the last tip you’ll ever need. Or it’s the neverending tip. Actually, it’s a million tips in one. Ready? Check out Gurus Unleashed. That’s it. Underwhelming? Not at all. Gurus Unleashed, the brainchild of Pariah S. Burke (author of Mastering InDesign CS3 for Print Design and Production), collects tips, tricks, techniques, and tutorials from around the web and delivers them right to your inbox, RSS reader, or Twitter feed. You don’t have to seek out the tips; they find you. Here’s tiny sample from my Twitter feed:

The daily tide of knowledge is nearly overwhelming. Last Friday I got 27 tweets from Gurus Unleashed. Every one a tempting morsel. It’s like that scene from I Love Lucy in the candy factory.

And the Twiter feed is only the 5 most recent posts each hour. The RSS feed has the whole enchilada. The links keep coming faster than you can click ’em. Pretty soon you’re stuffing them in your pockets, under your hat, and down your shirt. Sometimes you just read the titles and sigh, knowing you’ll never have the time or the brain capacity to take it all in. Dang, the Internet is big. At least thanks to Pariah and Gurus Unleashed (over 7000 articles and counting), you don’t have to spend as much time seeking out publishing tips. You just have to try to figure out how to cope with the massive avalanche of goodies rolling past.

    Wow! Thanks, Mike! Mind if I quote you on that?
