Open Source Project Management Links To Research

I was about 30 minutes down a rabbit trail that was derailing my David Allen's Getting Weekly Review when I ran into this article that I pulled out of Global Services Media back in March 2006, and since this relates to a #1 crisis currently at work I came over to my computer to type in the URLs into my task list. 

Then I thought, since I'm already chasing rabbits, lets make a blog post.

Some open source tools for project management to check out:

There are probably now a ton of other options. If you have suggestions, then let me know.

But now is the time for the end of this rabbit trail ...


Getting - Busy Four Day Weekend Recommendation

4updaykeeperThis Memorial Holiday weekend in San Diego looks very busy for us.  When things start to look like they might get potentially out of control with the family schedule, I've found I like to have a 'low-tech paper' calendar for the family to look at in the kitchen. 

I usually print out a couple of pages for each day of the weekend using a 'day keeper'  template from DIY Planner.  But since today is an off day from work, it is really a four day weekend, and a four-up Hipster DIY Planner page can get all the information I need on sheet.

I just printed a single page, and add all the stuff I know is suppose to happen. Now when Christy gets back from volunteering at the kids' school, she can get her items on there, and in theory, we should be pretty well scheduled. 

Have a great weekend! You can follow mine via twitter if you want.


Executive Staffing With Stay-At-Home Moms

Sue Shellenbarger @ WSJ.com recently had a very interesting article in her Work & Family column called "How Stay-at-Home Moms Are Filling An Executive Niche." 

I think this idea is extremely beneficial for both the consultant and the business.  The consultant gets to keep their skills current and in use. The business gets access to "C-level" expertise at an extremely reasonable rate.
