Is anyone else dizzy at the rate of new web-based tools/services with tinges of RSS, social software, open-ness? It’s a Good Thing, but it seems like there are 3 or 4 or 12 a week.
The latest is the coyly named Remember the Milk:
Achieve Domestic Bliss.
Never forget the milk (or anything else) again.
Remember The Milk is the easiest and best way to manage your to-do lists online. Here are just a few of the reasons why it’s so cool:
* Features galore.
Sharing, publishing, notes… we’ve got it all.
* Get reminded.
Receive reminders via email, instant messenger, and SMS.
* It’s free.
Hard to believe, we know, but it’s true.
So its a service for creating todo lists, looks like with items that are tagged for free-form categorizing, multiple modes for sending reminders, and hooks for creating shared lists (that’s all guess work from the features list— I did not even have time to play with it).
I’m trying to get my office to consider doing this for project/event management, we drown in paper, clipboards, single owned server files…
But the name and logo are just too cool. Much better than other tired clichÃ©s.
