Using Eastgate's Tinderbox for GTD implementation
Merlin Mann | Sep 5 2004
I haven’t kept up much with its recent development, but I know Tinderbox has been a terrific, versatile application that’s just about perfect for GTD implementation in many ways. Bit of a steep learning curve, but a lot of folks says it’s worth it. I’ve certainly enjoyed tinkering with it in the past, and I still find it very satisfying as a mind-mapping tool and occasional IA app.
It’ll be swell when programs like Tinderbox and OmniOutliner, as well as promising-looking OSX newcomers like Shadow Plan, eventually start to talk to each other seamlessly (and without the need for explicit export/import).
At this point, it seems you really need to commit yourself to a single app if you’re going to develop the level of trust in your system that’s needed to make GTD really sizzle. But, I can certainly envision a time when different apps might provide completely different ways to view and manipulate your data (e.g., graphical map, outline, RDF, structured text)—all based on the same XML-based file.
Ah, sweet, courageous LazyWeb.
