This post goes out to my friends Brian and Jeremy who endured a lengthy discussion with me last night about web-based productivity tools. It’s also a follow up to my earlier post on Web-Based Project Management Tools.
First thanks to Jeremy who told me about Google Notebook, which allows you to copy text and images from any web site to a “note” that lives on Google’s servers and is accessible via your Google login. So far I can see using this like an extension of my backpack account which doesn’t allow me to upload images.
- WikiText is so much more robust than the textile language
- The interface is as dynamic and intuitive as any Ajax app out there
- I don’t need to worry about storing sensitive client data on someone else’s server
- There are pre-made templates for popular organizational techniques like GTD
- The name is too cool
- It’s not a great tool for more than one user, or for publishing data publicly.
- It’s best suited for tech savvy folks who can handle any issues that come when, say, you want to upgrade or extend your page and all of your data, business logic, and presentation settings are stored in a single file.
So far, I’m impressed though. The TiddlyWiki is truely a software revolution.
