Which Online GTD App Is Right For You?

Which Online GTD App Is Right For You?

GTD is supposed to organize and make things easier in your life. Over the last few years of growing GTD-hype many things have been established.

Most importantly, you can’t have a GTD system that takes up more time than the projects and tasks themselves. However, you have to find the right system for yourself.

This is easy when we’re talking about physical and ‘lo-tech’ GTD systems because they are easy to customize on-the-go. The same thing is a little harder if you want an online GTD system because they are much more set-up on their own.

So before launching into the latest and greatest GTD web apps, have a look at what everyone else is saying. Most options work well for a lot of people. Making yourself familiar with what each app does before actually going ahead and using it may save you a lot of time and hassle.

Here’s what a few people have had to say on many common GTD web apps:

Online GTD Applications: The Rest of the Story – [GTDWannabe]

GTD 2.0 – [eHub]

The most important question I think you need to ask yourself before getting into the GTD web app field is whether or not you actually need an online GTD system. Why does it have to be online?

There are clear advantages to keeping things online, but will a text file or email account suffice? Something that you already use everyday and doesn’t require another learning curve?

Is a notebook in your pocket or whiteboard on the wall good enough?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
