I decided to try some kind of centralised Todo list management again so I had a proper look at Remember The Milk and it’s very nice.
However, the thing that makes it really compelling is the variety of different ways to access the list. I discovered that I can add items by sending a direct message to RTM via Twitter and I can get reminders via MSN or Google Talk.
I then further discovered the wonders of twirssi. Since I spend most of my working day in and out of IRC (for legitimate works reasons 😉 I was looking for a way to avoid having to go to yet another website or application every time I want to add something to my todo list. Now, I can simply tweet a message like “d rtm bank at 2pm” and it shows up in my todo list. With twirssi, I can simply type /r bank at 2pm in my IRC client and the same happens.
Very Web 2.0, but I think it’s very cool.
