 Chandler 1.0 finally gets here.
We are pleased to announce the release of Chandler 1.0, a “Note-to-Self Organizer” designed for personal and small-group task management and calendaring.

Chandler consists of a desktop application and Chandler Hub, a free sharing service and web application. You can also download and run your own Chandler Server.

Chandler is open source and standards-based.

Chandler aims to provide a more integrated approach to managing information with:
  • A Quick Entry Bar to enter everything from ideas to reminders and appointments.
  • NOW-LATER-DONE Triage List to collect, process and track everything from deadlines and meetings to drafts and ideas.
  • Tickler Alarms to auto-re-focus deferred (LATER) items to NOW
  • An integrated, full-featured calendar designed for tracking meetings and events and tasks and deadlines.
  • Back-up and Sharing: Manage personal and shared lists and calendars side-by-side. Back-up to the Chandler Hub sharing service, sync with other calendar apps and services, and sync your data across multiple computers and access it from the web.
  • Lightweight integration with Email.

My daughter has to write a short movie script for an English assignment and the class is using a tool called celtx.  I thought I have to drag out the Toshiba to install a time-bombed chunk of shonky windows code, but instead I discover a pretty, open-source tool for mac, windows and linux.
celtx is the world's first all-in-one media pre-production software. It has everything you need to take your story from concept to production. Celtx replaces 'paper, pen & binder' pre-production with a digital approach that's more complete, simpler to work with, and easier to share.
