Note to Self
Do you, like me, send a lot of email to yourself? Links, notes, ideas, to-dos?
If no: Disregard.
If yes: So, in Gmail, you accomplish this by typing “me” into the to: field. And I just figured something out. If you open your Gmail contacts and change the “Name” field for your own address to something quick and unique, you accomplish two things: One, eliminate the risk of sending personal to-dos to friends whose names begin with the letters M-E — which I have done. (I send a lot of these. And I send them very quickly.) Two, make it quicker to type. For instance, my new alias for my own address is “QQ” — totally unique, and a lightning-fast double key-tap! Especially on the iPhone.
P.S. Please call me QQ from now on.
