Like everybody, I have a big things I want to get done, and lots of promises I’ve made to people that I want to make sure I keep.

I keep track of everything I need to do with a ‘to-do’ list.  (For a long time, it was my mail).    When the list gets bigger I get scared because there is a lot to do in very little time.  This means that the size of the list is an interesting thing in its own right.

This page is going to show two things.

  • My live, read-right-from-cloud to-do list
  • The pictures that show how the size of the list changes over time.


The  how and why I made this so it can be seen by everyone are written up here.  (there was also some press: New York Magazine, Esquire, Lifehacker, The RescueTime Blog, Livehacker (again), Boing Boing, and a large number of places that steal all their stuff from Lifehacker and Boing Boing).

Fear Charts

The picutre below changes every half an hour to give the live size of my ‘to-do’ list.

Things that have been in the list for more than a week are the red line, more than three days the purple, and more than 24 hours the green (the blue is the ‘current’ state).




I put this page thought ‘Simple Writer’,  and the only problems were:  list, mail, Charts, and purple.
