Maybe you’ve seen this already: http://www.boingboing.net/2007/11/14/i-want-sandy-perfect.html

The concept of giving someone else your information to keep track of for you isn’t really attractive to me - and probably doesn’t work for most CRIMPers, because the whole point is that we want to manage and manipulate our own data.  But I thought y’all would want to see this new entry anyway.

The one thing that is cool here is the tag-based organization of information.  I haven’t seen that before, except on del.icio.us.  I think tags makes a lot of sense - I wonder why more desktop PIMS aren’t organized that way?

I’m not sure exactly how this works (the web site is deliberately vague), but if it requires one to send an e-mail with text such as “remind me to move the car in 10 minutes” and then sends an e-mail back 10 minutes later telling you to move the car, it seems to be a very labour intensive system to do something quite simple!  Apart from which, it requires a person to be always attentive to their e-mail.

I let Zoot do this sort of thing.  With the Zooter (Alt-Z) you can get this sort of thing into Zoot in seconds from whichever program you are working in - no need to open an e-mail program or even the Zoot window.
