| Well,
| My org/GTD usage would be as follows:
| I do not use remember and I do not use the
| calendar/diary. I just keep it simple...
| I have one main .org file and edit that
| directly.
| In this file I've made top level
| headings that cover all the things I'm busy on
| (they are named: * work, * shopping, * Internet
| etc)
| These headings kind of make up for the "context"
| choosing part of GTD
| I try to schedule most of the TODO's that I
| enter into the .org-file. In that way I can use
| the org-agenda to see what I should do next.
| But what I find the biggest advantage of using
| org-mode is the fact that everything can be done
| by editing a simple plain-text document...
| That's useful for me because I've got a MAC at
| home, Windows at my work and in the library, and
| an old PDA (that's also happy with plain-text)
| for on the road...
| I also export the .org file, so I can get a nice
| overview of what I need to get done in a html or
| pdf document.  Another good thing about org-mode
| is that you can also use it as a
| word-processor-look-a-like. By using .css-files
| or latex it's very easy to produce a good
| looking document from a plain-text org-file...
| The only thing I'm not so sure about yet is on
| using tags or priorities in my org-file. I have
| not found a good way to use those yet... And I
| also wonder how they could fit into GTD... As
| long as I can schedule most of the TODO's, I
| don't think I need to set priorities
| anyway... And my use of very obvious headings,
| kind of excludes the use of tags...
| That's how I do it... but I think everyone will
| find their own way of using org/GTD...
| Ciao,
| Renzo
| Bytheway, another good option for practicing GTD
| would be http://www.tiddlywiki.com I
| think they even have discussions about GTD, just
| search for GTD in they group-archives at
| http://groups.google.com/group/TiddlyWiki/
