I really like Chandler. I use it everyday. But I feel I like the idea more
than what is already implemented. Don't get me wrong. There is already some
great software released. However, for most people, Chandler doesn't cut it
becouse they feel the software itself (the desktop client) should have been
better given the time it is in development. In a way, these people are
right. I feel that Chandler's direction has changed for the better and that
things are **happening** now, even though there aren't many software
I don't know what happens, and I'm confused on what led Chandler to such a
confusion in its objectives and development workflow. What I see now, is an
attempt from the staff to give the project a meaning. Maybe becouse the
project was too broad and tried to be "transcendent" software (yes, I read
the book) it was too much to handle and the team couldn't divide and conquer
the tasks in an efficient manner.
I'm saying this becouse I really care for Chandler. I feel that it is an
awesome idea and that it could make the life of use, knowledge workers,
What I feel could help is a GTD-oriented Chandler. Given the amount of GTD
enthusiasts around, making Chandler a real GTD tool (implementing all the
GTD concepts formally) could really help.
And this is another thing I really like - The GTD methodology and
philosophy. I'm a programmer and system architect. I'm an over-stressed
human-being. There are millions of Open-Loops in my mind in a given time.
GTD is helping me be under control of all these bits of information.
However, I'm still searching for a "system that I trust", and I strongly
feel that Chandler could be this sytem.
I would be happy to contribute a plugin for this, but I don't know if the
plugin architecture is stable enough for use, is it? (I say this becouse
the other day I tried using a plugin from pyPI and Chandler just started
halting when I tried to install it.).
