I discovered a very cool little webtool the other day: Backpack.

It’s a neat little website that lets you organize to-do lists, notes, and reminders online, and then (the really cool part) lets you share them with other people. Leslie and I use it to keep a to-do list of what needs to get done around the house. We both can edit the list, check things off as done, and leave notes. I use it at work with other people who are working on the same projects as me. It’s also got an RSS feed option.

It’s like having a dry-erase board that you can access anywhere. I don’t know how many of you are surrounded by computers all day, every day, but for those of us that are, Backpack is incredibly useful.

  2. I think you’re going to need to take a day or so off to get all of that done.

    The backpack seems to be working, but I’m still finding little slips of paper with reminders on them. From 3 months ago.
