  • Since you mention using a Mac, maybe you should have a look at Omni Outliner [omnigroup.com].

    I've settled on using it longer than anything else has lasted. I always have it open, so using it is pretty quick.

    But... keeping things organized can be a challenge at times. (Some entries seem to belong under multiple parents, not easy with an outliner)

    However, there is a "new kid" on the block! (er... new to me anyways)

    I just stumbled across TiddlyWiki [tiddlywiki.com] and it is just "damn cool", IMHO.

    I'm considering moving some of my stuff over
    • Keeping things organized can be a challenge at times. (Some entries seem to belong under multiple parents, not easy with an outliner)

      It seems to me like this is in need of tags, as on del.icio.us/Flickr/..., and not of a hierarchy.

      See the articles I bookmarked (and tagged :)) on del.icio.us [del.icio.us].
      • That is why I wrote Rubric. It allows you to organize not just bookmarks, but also notes and journal entries and the like. (Also, with minor modifications, images and video.)

        http://rjbs.manxome.org/rubric [manxome.org]

        It's on the CPAN.

        • Not bad, not bad at all. I am a sucker for boolean (mainly AND) combinations of tags, and I found your tool actually offers that power.

          What I'd like a just a little more userfriendly interface to select tags. Say I want to select items with the tags "color" and "tools". Neither of these tags are not on the front page... Entering "color tools" in the search box does not yield the desired selection, as it does a full text search and not a tags search. Or should I see: a full text search but not including the tags.

          Just a complete list of all tags, for example in the box on the right, would suffice. Now the box contains "recent tags", a link to "all tags", which probably is a huge list, or a textbox to search for tags as text, would work.

          I can still get there... I can click on any tag in the existing items, like "software", and edit the last word in the URL to get http://rjbs.manxome.org/rubric/entries/tags/tools [manxome.org]. Getting there, it's now showing 11 of 25 items. Now I can click on "related tags" -> "color", and I finally get there: 2 items. Now this latter interface is just a fantastic way to drill down...

          But it's no way to get started.
          • I agree. I've recently started doing some more work on Rubric, and these are things I'd like to fix. The search box, now, only searches description and body, which sucks.

            I have a shortcut so I can type "r foo bar" to go to /rubric/~rjbs/foo+bar which is in turn a shortcut for /rubric/entries/user/rjbs/tags/foo+bar
