Nothing for PalmOS(5) at this point?
	Hmmm. Not sure I want it to. Maybe. Given the rich functionality of 
tasks / datebk / agendus / gtd, and the lack of that functionality in 
google, a google import might be ok, but I suspect burping would be 
problematic afterwards. A separate google calendar app might be ok to 
catch other public google calendars, but that's a separate beastie, I 
think. (OTOH, if google had the rich functionality, then that would be 
welcome, and a migration path off Palm.)

Does this interact with anything, e.g. google?


zim wiki, it seems to me, is a two-pane outliner. And a rich one at 
that. As Raul points out.

Anyone using tiddlywiki, including plugins, on Palm / WebOS / Android?

What is gtasks sync'ing to? Evolution?

Tasks seem to be an acquired taste (and discipline). Google's version 
of tasks make acquiring that taste hard. It doesn't help that the idea 
of tasks impinges upon the ideas of project management and the idea 
that there are many more tasks/things that one can/should do. Which 
can easily overwhelm the PIM/tasks interface, burying the 'now' in a 
lot of annoying extraneous (for that moment) background noise.
