I'm working on a project that improves general productivity (not just developer productivity) with common methods, based on science studies. The methods aren't popular yet.

The biggest insight is that it's far more important to work on big, important problems.

Hi, I'm intrigued, and I'm left wondering what you might mean by, "...improves general productivity..."? Without trying to reduce your project's value to a single approach or paradigm, can I ask you how a software project like yours might help someone achieve improved productivity? Could I ask you, for my own academic and personal betterment, which paper(s)/author(s)/experiment(s) it was where you discovered your project's methods? Thanks a bunch, in advance!
