Taskpaper has a nice idea, using a plaintext microformat to store TODO lists. Seems unfortunate that it’s getting so much press a week before Leopard comes out with the same feature with presumably the same implementation.
I’ve long thought that TODO lists were overdue for an IMAP style, access this anywhere from any client, protocol. Nice to see Apple implementing it and it looks like they’re skipping the design-a-new-protocol phase and just using IMAP for the TODO list.
Next up, a standard way of syncing read RSS feeds? I’d like that very much, kthxbye.
