Tonight is the kick-off for the GTD Summit here in San Francisco. If you haven’t noticed, David Allen and his GTD method of Getting Things Done have really taken off! David is a long time fan of mapping and has been using MindManager for years.

So, I’m going to attempt to do some live blogging and tweeting at the event. I’ll post Summit updates, quotes, reactions, photos and some maps. Ambitious? Maybe. Hopefully all the technology will cooperate!  


Tonight’s Activities: Register and then schmooze at the welcome reception. When no one’s looking, I’ll sneak out and head to another event. Shhh, don’t tell anyone. I’ll also be minimizing my emails for the next few days — so if you’d like to contact me, use Twitter or the Mindjet blog comments!  


Thursday: The Mindjet team will be at our exhibit table while I sneak off and map out and blog the following sessions:

  • 5:30 AM: Get up and start loading up on Java to Get Things Done!
  • 7:30 AM to 8:45 AM: More coffee and breakfast with productivity people
  • 8:45 AM to 9:35 AM: Keynote Address with David Allen and Guy Kawasaki. Guy, I want to meet you!
  • 9:35 AM to 10:25 AM: Getting Things Done 2.0 Panel
  • 10:30 AM: Attempt to update blog…

  • 12:15 PM to 12:45 PM: – Quick lunch and another blog update!
  • 12:45 PM to 1:30 PM: Coaches’ Theater: Getting Email to Zero. Personal favorite. Tough to do but priceless!
