A Service for Merlin Mann

A Service for Merlin Mann

If you’ve not heard of Merlin Mann, well, he’s the entertaining co-host of such podcasts as Back to Work and You Look Nice Today (NSFW), and has appeared on numerous tech podcasts like MacBreak Weekly, which is where I first heard him. He also has number of websites bearing his imprint.
