Me, re: gtd:

> Yes, there’s a ton more. No, my life isn’t complex enough to require it. I’ve got a bit more on that, but it’s a way’s off.

I lied. It’s not going to happen. File under “life’s too short.” Instead, this passing comment:

It’s not really all that hard to make lists by project and context and then keep them somewhere you trust. It doesn’t hurt to so a little extra salesmanship on the benefits of that kind of system, and it’s good to demonstrate ways in which one might accomplish that with things commonly found in the aisles of an OfficeMax or on a computer.

That said, it seems to me that the genius of a site like, say, 43Folders might well be that it will have an eternally replenishing stock of interested newbies on their way to actually doing something with the organizational tips. Surely it doesn’t have people hanging around who have just happened to decide to make a hobby out of organizational techniques.
