There are a ton of GTD based task management applications still on the horizon. One to fit just about any preference it seems.
On one end of the spectrum, there will be Things by Cultured Code. If you like the bells and whistles wrapped in a pretty package than this will be the one for you. It has a ton of features like tagging, hierarchy, a quick entry pane, etc. You can even delegate items by Mail, Bonjour or iChat. (via Daring Fireball)
On the other end, there is TaskPaper. It is basically a very simple GUI and formatting structure wrapped around a text file. Seriously, the document it creates to store your data is nothing more than a text file and can be opened and manipulated with a text editor. It is done in such a disarmingly simple and minimalist way that I immediately fell in love. If you are looking for something with a little more formating and clarity than a plain text file but no more than this is for you. (via 43 Folders)
If neither of those flip your switch, ATPM has a fantastic rundown of the current deluge of GTD applications that are available. Well worth a read if you are still on the search. (via 43 Folders)
Not GTD related, an interesting blog to pop up on the radar screen is TagaMac. They plan to explore the intersections of “tagging” and the Macintosh. Tagging is becoming an increasingly popular way to classify and easily search and sort items. Many of the applications I use rely heavily on tags. If given the choice between tagging and organizing things into folders, give me tagging any day.
Being that I am about to have a newborn (Princess Bethany and I are “with child”), I found this post at The Simple Dollar timely. If you start saving 10 dollars a day on the day your child is born, and you play your cards right, you could have $38,952.16 to give them when they are 25. Great down payment for their first house.
