What’s Merlin Make & Do?
Merlin writes, consults, and speaks on many of the topics discussed on his site, 43 Folders. He also contributes to a variety of popular online projects, variously as a creator, producer, writer, performer, or guest.
More recently, companies, organizations, and government agencies have brought Merlin in to advise them on everything from improving personal productivity, to doing better creative work, to even—yes, inexplicably—learning how to use social media without turning into a huge douche. Want to work with Merlin? Awesome!
Bottom line? Merlin’s primary job is to stay curious about everything, identify the points where two forces might clash, then enthusiastically share what that might mean, as well as why you might care.
And, yes; this is the best career a person could ever hope for.
