My kGTD setup

Related to today's earlier post, a number of people have written over the past few weeks with curiosity about kGTD ("Is it worth buying OmniOutliner Pro?" "Is it worth buying a Mac?" "Will I be able to vanquish all foes?"). While I'm not prepared to do a major sales presentation, I am happy to oblige the folks who wanted to see how I've set mine up. Also gives you a little window into my current contexts (as well as my atrocious personal habits).

A couple more thoughts...

Ajax seems to be where it is at for GTD systems though... I can't help to feel excited about the Web 2.0 buzz... I don't really feel that fat client GTD is going to last. Each application requires significant overhead (yours or riding on some other app), even to the point of making sure that kGTD stays with the latest beta of OOPro, which may not be what you want to do if you actually use OOPro for anything else... I still tend to call it bleeding edge GTD where your organization system can come crashing down if OmniGroup has too many beers. Granted it is changing in the future, but who likes to spend $150 on a single use case for OOPro, since you have to pretty much skin your outliner to solely chew on your GTD template.

I am just getting into RoR and setting up a textdrive+typo+apache/lighttpd+mint setup and the more I play with Rails the more I find it to be the ideal place for roll-your-owners to play.

I detract my insinuation of a standalone GTD client in the last comment... I think instead it's all about xmlrpc clients that hook into webapps with content stored in CoreData... Mmmmm Rails Cocoafication... Ya that's the ticket.

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. »
