Dave Seah's desk

I’m Dave Seah, probably best known as a designer of paper-based productivity tools such as The Emergent Task Planner. I also develop interactive software for installation-based learning applications.

I have a Motorola RAZR-3 flip phone. I have avoided getting an iPhone because I don’t want to be connected to the Internet all the time. As a bonus, my phone bill is about $6/month.

I like file names like 2015-06-02_10-23-44.jpg. A lot of cameras use a format like DSC30948.jpg or IMG_4490.jpg when you import them. Thankfully, there is a great program for the Mac called ExifRenamer that can automatically rename photos based on their EXIF data.
