New York Minute Task System

January 05, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

The Escapers (makers of Flux, Stuf and more) have an interesting new task management service called Instruktion. Or maybe it's called "New York Minute", it's not clear to me. It is cross platform and the apps are free. It requires a $20/year membership which sounds like a good price.

It looks very nice on all of the application platforms and works offline too. I'm an OmniFocus user but I'll keep an eye on how this evolves.

    This post at NPR is interesting on so many different levels. It's about Leonardo da Vinci's todo list. It has left me a sense of being normal. Here's a few thoughts I had during and after reading this.

  3. Some OmniFocus Macros

    June 30, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    In light of my previous post about controlling my work environment with Keyboard Maestro, I thought I would share a few more handy macros for OmniFocus.

    Clean and Sync

    This is a pretty simple macro. Most of the work is done by two lines of AppleScript. The macro tells OmniFocus ...

  4. Hyperbole and Bad Advice

    June 12, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I think Seth Godin writes some thought provoking pieces. I worry that he is following the recent trend of embracing hyperbole to fill a blog with fluff. Typically, hyperbole is just a waste of the reader's time. Sometimes it is actually bad advice.

    It's great to try to ...

  5. OmniFocus and Spootnik

    June 09, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I agree with Eddie's recent post about using a Windows machine as just another tool or context. However, as a registered Spootnik user, I can tell you that web access to my tasks in OmniFocus is very convenient. And to Eddie's point that installing OmniFocus on every computer ...

    I really loved the OmniFocus CLI posted over on I loved it so much that I decided to build my own, but instead of a shell script, I wanted to explore a solution in Python. I solve quite a bit of my own little problems using Python. I ...

  8. Due Is The Enemy Of Done

    May 10, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    After listening to David Sparks’ OmniFocus video series, I’ve been rethinking how I use due dates for tasks. Well, actually, I’ve been rethinking it for quite sometime. Usually when I’m postponing due dates.


    I love the OmniFocus for iPad’s Forecast mode. It’s a custom ...

  9. Simplenote everywhere (including Dropbox)

    February 07, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I bought into the Simplenote world from the moment I read John Gruber rave about it. Since then I have relied heavily on the Simplenote platform for both personal and professional note taking and list making. The beauty of Simplenote lies in its unique restriction to plain text. I have ...
