Download Squad: Windows GTD apps

Getting Things Done Software Systems (Part 1 of 2) - Download Squad

Download Squad has posted the first in a two-part series reviewing systems for supporting Getting Things Done. It includes an overview of the GTD basics, plus apps for Windows and PDAs. The next edition will cover "online software."

It's a Windows post with Windows-centric solutions, but, hey, I've seen the 43F numbers: a lot of you kids are running Redmond, so this should be useful for a lot of you who don't get the pleasure of living in kGTD.

I'll also look forward to part 2 -- hoping they'll cover Backpack, an app that I consider one of the finest web apps out there, period.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
