At NYU – 32 Waverly Place, Silver Building
Room 411


Using a Work Diary
to
Prevent Project Chaos


Presented by
Brendan Kidwell


Do you email work notes to yourself but can’t remember when or where you sent them? Have you ever spent hours trying to find a fact or a piece of evidence in your loose collection of text files and Word documents? Have you ever lost a thought entirely because it was never recorded at all?

People who do creative work at home or on the job should keep a work diary for recording things they’ve done and things they plan to do. This presentation will discuss approaches to setting up your own work diary and questions you should ask yourself while picking a software solution. We will explore some ideas for keeping a work diary using a free software application called Zim Desktop Wiki, in particular using its tagging, to-do list, calendar, and search features.

Brendan Kidwell is an application developer at Abt Associates Inc., an open source software developer, and maintainer of the Windows build of Zim Desktop Wiki.
