Holy Moley – RescueTime Hack to Track Meetings and Phone Calls

There is a cool feature that Twitter has that allows you to “track” a word or phrase and get a notification anytime ANYONE twitters about it.  Of course the first word we started tracking was “RescueTime”.

The last couple of days we’ve seen some Tweets from a fellow named Carlo…  I kept meaning to drop him a line but the notifications always seemed to happen when I was away from my computer.

Lo and behold, in the span of just a few days Carlo has learned to love AppleScript.  More importantly, he has created a cool tool to allow you to push meeting and phone call data to RescueTime with just a click or two (Mac only).  Big shout out to Carlo!

If you’re desperate to have such a thing for Windows, let us know in the comments or in our forum.

  1. Thanks for the link and post!

    Just for the record (my reputation as coder is in risk): I still don’t love Applescript, it just allowed me to get the job done. 😉
