Some time ago we had discussed Noah ( http://www.gen-9.net/ ) which organises e-mails and files on a timeline.

I have just come across Nemo ( http://www.iola.dk/nemo/ ) which combines fie manager and calendar. The program is under development and Linux only, but there are several screen shots on the site to give you an idea of the concept, which I found quite interesting.

As noted elsewhere some time ago, I expect information managers to be able to provide me with different views of the same data—e.g. folders, chronological, category etc- rather than trying to impose a specific organisational paradigm upon me.

In this regard, the file system seems to be the most versatile repository. Files exist in folders, but they can be shown in various layouts, e.g. hierarchical, flat view (Directory Opus, Ultra Explorer), Miller columns (Ultra Explorer), calendar (Nemo) etc. In addition, they can be associated with each other multidimensionally through links in many of the information managers we discuss (Personal Brain is perhaps the most typical example). Last but not least, all of these approaches do not in anyway restrict each other—contrary to the limitations of keeping information _within_ proprietary information manager databases. The file system rules!

And a Happy New Year to everyone :-)

Nemo Documents for Windows has now reached version 1 http://www.nemo-docs.com/

I have been using it for quite some time, and I find it a useful addition to my toolbox. Just one look at Nemo and I know what I’ve been working on in the past week. For accessing recent files, it is much better than Windows’ recent documents list.

Nemo can now also show files from Google Docs and events from Google Calendar (unfortunately, one is not yet able to select which specific calendars from their account to show, so I have disabled this for the moment).

I know I’ve written about Nemo elsewhere too, but I thought it made sense to keep the original thread updated.

Thanks. Nemo have gone a long way since I last checked it. Could you point out to the specific feature where Nemo has it?

Assuming that you refer to the Google Docs/Calendar integration, it is accessed via right clicking on Nemo’s system tray icon and choosing Settings / Google.

In fact, right clicking on the system tray icon is the closest you’ll ever get to a menu in Nemo…

Sorry. My reply was to a different topic. (A duplicate one) Either it got renamed or merged with this topic.
