This one is interesting. It is a wiki that can track all your lists/projects/notes. The cool thing it that it a self-contained web-app. People have been putting them on USB keys along with portable Firefox giving them the ability to use their lists on most PCs.


Backpack is pretty cool. It is a service that you can set up to-dos, reminders, notes, photos online. It is slick. The reminders are nice, you schedule a message and Backpack delivers them to your email at the right time. You can upload by email, for example, set up an email with the subject "to-do" an in the body of the email set it up like this:

* First to do
* Second to do
* Third to do

And send the email to an address that backpack supplies and the todo list gets set up.

Backpack has a free option with five pages and ten reminders. You can pay to get things like storage space, more pages and more reminders.

I like Backpack a lot. I'm not sure how it would fit into my current setup though. But I'm trying to figure a way to make it work. :)

TaDa lists

By the same people who make Backpack. It is a free online to-do list service. I don't use it, but I've heard positive things about it.
