GTD Salsa: in 80 days around the world

by

Ever wrote all your super important and time sensitive info in a gadgety note taking and self administration tool? Ever recovered that info exactly half a year after its relevance horizon? Then this post is for you, but beware, this is not the post for the quick info, so I have marked these posts with GTD Salsa, for the less focused break and hellish self reflection.

Frequent readers might notice that I am the guy, who first installed a ruby based instiki – which crashed on me, just after I had gotten serious with hacking its database internals (speak: added a slash in a path definition) – who then spent a night transforming my macbook into a mediawiki server just for myself, and promised to keep you up to date with how my media wiki information and project planning was coming along. What to say? I just discovered that reminder while skimming through this blog.

My MediaWiki: I have dumped it. My personal wiki was working reliably, I just turned out to fill it with information that I never ever retrieved out of it. I could have, it was all there, and in a thought-out structure, but to be honest I was just to lazy to click 5 links in order to know what the next step in a certain tasklist would be. It is important to note here, that this was a personal wiki. Shared wikis are quite a different affair, and I enjoy using some of them, bit this post is about organizing just yourself.

The all new system without a system

So, for two weeks now I have a new system, that is extra easy and just for me. no hyperlinks, no databases, and I will explain it to you in a series of postings, because I have just lost you now for today, and have half a Charles Stross left at the side of the sofa.

stay tuned …

    hi!
    i’m curious about your system without hyperlinks or database… i’m looking for a system which fits for me and all these personal wikis available are just far to complicated and i’m sure i won’t keep them up to date for more than a few days…

    btw: nice blog!!!
