  • Sorting out loads of Notes

    Ok not quite a GTD issue but I have recently started a new job which means I have loads of notes about products, software and people which I want to draw together and store in a sensible form electronically.

    A few people have suggested a WIKI but I'd prefer something on a laptop without the hassles of running Apache etc.

    I have thought of a mind mapping tool like Freemind but I was wondering what other people might suggest here ?

    Well, if you like the idea of a wiki except for the overhead, there's the GTD TiddlyWiki - it's just an HTML file.

      That link doesn't seem to work ?

        I should have checked that, sorry. Post has been corrected.

          Having used both wikis and mindmapping, I'd use a wiki in this case. At least for me, mindmapping works better as a planning tool, but wikis work better as reference tools. It sounds like a reference tool is what you need.

          There are lots of standalone wikis and wiki-like things that don't require a web server. I use Wikidpad (, which I like because it stores its data in plain text files with logical names.

            Many thanks to both of you.

            Just what I was looking for

              One more suggestion for a personal WiKi is NoteStudio from DogMelon ( It is really, really great and has a Palm conduit for flawless synchronization. A few people have implemented GTD specifically with NoteStudio.
