Mori maker's new plans
by Giles Turnbull
Jesse Grosjean, creator of notebook app Mori, is working on a new GTD product called TaskPaper.
In a revealing thread on his own forum that begins with Jesse’s thoughts on selling Mori to a third party (indeed, in a more recent thread Jesse says directly: “Also it’s very likely now that Mori and Clockwork’s development will be taken over by another developer,”), he reveals that his efforts have recently been focused on a task and project management tool.
It’s not a replacement for Mori, it’s a much much smaller app, but I think it will be good at managing your project and task list, while you still use Mori as a reference database. It takes a different approach then all the other GTD apps that I’m aware off and so even if you don’t decide to use it in the end I think it should be interesting to play with.
I’ve been using Mori for storage of ideas (and actually for writing of articles, too, something I previously considered a separate task but now I’m not so sure) since my post about idea management last week. I’m enjoying Mori’s simplicity and ease of use. The thought of there being a similarly simple and easy GTD app is quite appealing. Then again, OmniFocus is getting ever-nearer to release, so the competition in the Mac productivity sector is going to be fierce for a while yet.
You do your own footwork for good scoops :)
