That's it, Mimi, a place to drop in the many tidbits of info, new 
potential projects, tasks, phone numbers, etc., that all well eventually 
have a more formal home in Chandler, but, for now, at least are in the 

I agree with Marcelo also that some kind of quick-entry widget on the 
desktop would be useful also. The reality remains that the full desktop 
Chandler app can be a little "sleepy" in performance at the most 
inconvenient moment.

Short of a Google Desktop widget for this, I have used Jeffrey's iGoogle 
Quick Entry widget for effectively the same purpose. I'm not up on the 
plumbing, but perhaps it is only an incremental lift to clone a Google 
Desktop widget from the iGoogle widget...maybe a "Chandler Everywhere" 
strategy.  :)
