In his article, Net-Based To-Do Lists Permit Collaboration By Family, Colleagues, Weber mentions some of the productivity sites he's visited in his research and he shares his evaluation of a few web-based To-Do lists:
Email programs like Microsoft Outlook can track your obligations and hassle you until they're completed, while PDAs and even cell phones offer task lists and reminder options. The latest twist is to-do lists that you keep on the Web. Several new services promise to store all the details of your responsibilities online, from your loftiest career goals to how many bananas you need from the supermarket. Once the list is online, you can allow a colleague to update project milestones or let your spouse add to the roster of household chores.The sites mentioned include: www.backpackit.com (web-based task management), www.basecamphq.com , (for business projects), and www.tadalist.com, (free web-based to-do list).
Weber's article mentions bloggers focused on productivity:
The desire to become more productive and better organized is a powerful drive, and it has spawned interesting blogs. For anyone looking to exert some control over the daily chaos of work and home, these make for interesting reading ...He lists two productivity blogs: www.43folders.com and www.to-done.com that " .. cater to followers of the "Getting Things Done" method, known simply as "GTD" to devotees.
GTD devotee. Hmmm. I've never thought of myself as a devotee, though my signed copy of GTD is on my desk, right next to my NASB and I am blogging about this topic. I guess I am, as Weber states, a "follower of the "Getting Things Done" method." I think it's great to see blogging and GTD in the mainstream. Too bad Weber does not include a link to the GTD Jedi himself, David Allen or to my favorite GTD portal.
I hope Weber picks up a copy of GTD for himself; the world can always use a few more productive people.
