My partner and I live together. We used to keep two separate grocery lists on our separate mobile devices. That meant every time one of us went to the store, the following exchange happened via text:
“Um, hey, did you already buy rice?”
“Yeah, yesterday. I forgot laundry detergent, though.”
“Oh, I ordered that online this morning. Do we need eggs?”
A dozen or more texts later, we’d still manage to forget some crucial household staple, and one of us would have to go back to the store (in Seattle, in the rain, uphill both ways, etc).
Now we keep our shopping list on a shared Trello board (in the cloud), and we each update it independently. If I notice something running low, I add it to the list. When he’s out running errands, he checks things off as he picks them up. We now collaborate online in real time on our household shopping needs, and we haven’t run out of anything important since.
That’s great for a grocery list, but how does it apply to working in the arts?Read the Article
