Thanks for reading! It looks like the only thing I have to answer is the resounding request to create a white paper of this feature. This I will do (it’s already a next action). Since I haven’t had time to organize that yet you’ll have to be patient with me for a few days, but I would like to acknowledge some people.
Jonathan really got me interested and dedicated to learning and implementing GTD to begin with, and initially gave me the idea to use Gmail for GTD (after having done it himself).
Much of my inspiration comes from Merlin over at 43Folders and his wiki.
Thanks to Bren over at Slacker Manager for first bringing extra attention to my feature on GTD with Gmail.
I’m going to thank Zack early for agreeing to redo the design of my site (how boring that I use the default WP theme, right?) but I’ll let you all wait to thank him until it’s actually been changed (he’s making good progress).
And of course, thanks to all of you for your comments, questions and suggestions. Look for the white paper in a few days (and the book in a few months, Seth).
Let my first post serve as a disclaimer for anyone tempted to claim that I’d have my home-locale retrofitted to be a mini San Francisco, Seattle, New York, or Tokyo. I love home more than anything and have avoided moving to much larger cities because of that. Let my purpose be the opposite – an encouragement that technical productivity, modern society, and all around geek-life fundom can be had even in the relaxed-pace, pastoral, other-side of the digital divide.
I’m Bryan. I’m an over-enthusiastic software guy with a small family in Irmo, South Carolina – a suburb of Columbia, South Carolina (I know, I know – “Columbia has suburbs?”). I was born and raised in South Carolina, but haven’t lived here my entire life. I notice music, appreciate good design, forage for ideas, and brake for productivity (really). My phone has a camera on it, my computer has a piece of fruit on it, and I write things down to get them done.
Life is good. Knowledge and communication will make it better.
