I've been meaning to write this up for a while (something else that should be on my lists , but given that Wiki's seem to come up every so often, I'm going to make a stab at it. It won't be complete, but might start some people thinking. If you need/want more detail, drop me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I have implemented a GTD process/area in TWiki, which is a public domain wiki tool. I had a couple of main reasons for going this route:
1) Accessible from anywhere... I have the twiki password protected on my personal server, so whereever I can get to a computer, I can see my world. Since most of my time I'm near a machine with net access, this works for me.
2) TWiki keeps all changes in a "history"... I have a pathological desire () to not loose old to-do items, etc. This led me to always keeping things around, never "marking them off" and cleaning lists, etc. With TWiki, when I mark something as done, or even if I delete it, it keeps it in the history. I know that I'll probably never go back and look at it, but it relieves me of a set of concerns and helps clear my mind
How I did it:
I'm still getting on the GTD bandwagon, so I don't know that this is the best, but so far it seems to be working when I maintain the discipline to use it:
I created several "trees" or heirarchies in TWiki:
For calendar type items, I place entries in the databook area.
For general "lists", they get a page in the Lists area.
The AtLists are auto-generated using searches across the Wiki.
N/A area "Actions" that use the TWiki Action Plugin... this allows an entry to have a date, time, project, @List, etc. associated with it so that the searches can easily pick it up.
I have templates for Projects, etc. so that when I click "new project" and give a name, it fills in my standard look.
Things I'm still working on:
1) Exporting to a Palm... I've been working with the TWiki PublishAddOn to get my TWiki loaded on my palm for quick reference, but haven't been totally successful yet.[list]
I know this probably isn't really detailed enough, but might get some conversation going.
