Starting to use blogging as a note-taking tool… Let’s see how that works. I’m trying to use the gaim-blogger plugin for Gaim to make this as easy as possible, since I have my instant messaging program open mostly. My data life seems to slowly take shape around a few programs.
- Firefox as the browser desktop, to surf the net, find things, and develop websites and such.
- Agendus and Bonsai as contact, time, and task management tools, synchronising nicely with my Treo.
- Gaim and TheBat as communication tools, for either instant or asynchronous exchange of messages.
Notes and unstructured information still don’t really have a place. Sometimes they end up in Bonsai, sometimes in all kinds of files, and so now perhaps also sometimes here… What I like about the idea to put it here is that I can publish it to my website, and run my personal search engine over bookmarks, notes, writings, etc. So it becomes accessible again in my main "info gathering environment", the browser.
