Great post, Joe! So cool to actually see all the cool stuff we talk about actually written up somewhere. Let me know how GTD goes. I remember taking a whole weekend when I finished it to pretty much change EVERYTHING about how I organized my life. Some lessons stuck, a few faded. But in the end, I was WAY more on top of things.

Thanks again for coming. Remember - they're every week!

Hey, Joe - nice summary of the (excellent) discussion. I was wrong, the reference to the RDA being a "Silicon Valley Startup" wasn't in the Avatar script, but it is on the "official" Avatar wiki:

And while Brin's a decent futurist, he's not THAT ahead of the curve - Transparent Society was published in 1998, not 88.

@Monica: Thanks for organizing the event; I'll look forward to joining you at future BigBlog meetups.

@Jimgaynor: Thanks for the clarifications. 1988 was a typo, and I've updated the post with the hotlinked reference to the Pandorapedia entry for RDA. I hope you'll start sharing more of the interesting things you read on your Twitter feed!


I strongly recommend the OmniFocus Mac application. I use the iPhone app as well, which of course syncs with my laptop. I started using OmniFocus in 2008.
