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).

“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” the technology is irrelevant — it’s the concept, functionality and implementation that matters. don’t get sucked in to Marketing 2.0.

Point taken, I should have rephrased that to say I have seen so many useful implementations of AJAX, that I have no doubt that it will supplement much of the way we use a particular class of applications as fat clients.

No different then SSL not being able to solve end-to-end security in a world of convergence where people are connecting from many devices and points of presence in an organization... a task OASIS is solving with WS-Security (XMLenc/XMLDsig, SOAP, SAML, XACML, etc)... Organizations moving from disparate client/server mmgt to service-oriented architectures where Federation is possible.

My thoughts are certainly toward the use-case and not the tech as much recognizing the tech provides elegant development resources for the feature set that resembles GTD applications.

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. »

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