Because things change, I've jotted down the list of apps I use to manage my "stuff" daily as of today. Below each is a quick list of the types of things for which it's used. At some point I'd like to go into more detail, but by the time I do that everything changes again.
The list is longer than I would like, but I can't seem to narrow it down further. The highlight here is that I'm unable to get rid of Emacs, so it remains an important part of my process. I fear that it always will, and that I'll have to get good at it, eventually.
- Task management via org-mode
- Long-form journaling via org-journal
- Time tracking
- Document production
- Too much of my spare time
- The Control Center: Connects everything to everything
- Project management
- Personal and work event timelines
- Links to interesting things and to their concepts
- Project notes
- Visual/Concept mapping
- Photo/event journaling
- My note-taking "inbox"
- Blog posts, tech notes, and ideas percolate here until ready to be moved somewhere more permanent
- For finished notes that I may want to share or access quickly on the go
- Document archive
- All sorts of wierd text processing
- Occasionally as a writing environment
- Markdown writing. Mostly blog posts. I just really like writing here.
