Chandler Project–Personal Information Dashboard

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the new Eudora adoption into the Mozilla project . But there is another PIM and email project that is interesting, it’s the Chandler Project.

The Chandler Project is an open source, standards-based personal information manager (PIM) built around small group collaboration and a core set of information management workflows modelled on Inbox usage patterns and David Allen’s GTD methodology. Chandler is sponsored by the Mitch Kapor lead Open Source Applications Foundation.

I played around with it this weekend, and it’s interesting. If if can improve my productivity with email in any way shape or form I would be interested. Not familiar with David Allen’s methodologies past the Business 2.0 article but there’s got to be a better way to deal with email, calendar, tasks, and all that other information that shapes my life at work and at home.

Chandler’s probably worth watching.
