Get a Free Issue of Productive Magazine

productive-magazine.jpgSeemingly tailor-made for Business Hacks readers, Productive Magazine offers various productivity tips culled from the blogosphere. Um, kind of like we do, which begs the question: Who needs a magazine? We'll leave that for you to decide, as the first issue is free to check out [PDF link].

The issue includes an interview with Getting Things Done guru David Allen, along with some intriguing (but familiar to any regular BH reader) articles: "3 Essential Tools for Productivity," "14 Numbers Your Cell Phone Can't Live Without," and so on. There's plenty of good material here, though I must admit that the whole GTD philosophy makes my eyes roll.

PM is an e-zine, but of course you can print the PDF if you prefer hardcopy. Or, if you're quite insane, you can order a print version for $19.95 from Lulu. Anyway, take a look a let us know what you think. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the irony: blogs arose to take the place of magazines, and now there's a magazine composed almost entirely of blog posts! [via jkOnTheRun]
