Do you ever wonder who some of the other TD users are? I do. Especially when it comes to those active in the forums. I thought it would be fun to add some details here. If you want to participate, feel free.

I thought we could answer the following 3 questions (all optional of course):

Where do you live?
I live in Salem, OR USA

What do you do?
I am a web designer for an athletic club and also run a freelance web design business.

Where can I find you on the web?
Twitter
Flickr
VINTOM.com (freelance)

Hey Vin, cool idea.

I live in Lewisburg, PA USA

I am a student of biology at Bucknell University. I also do research in evolutionary ecology, mostly using molecular techniques. I plan to work in the field of conservation genetics.

I am on:
facebook
twitter
But I am new to Twitter, so there is not much going on there.

Oregon, U.S.A.
Work for small mail order co. with significant online store; I do research, some web development & testing, write internal PDF training manuals, and etc.
Pro user - joined May 9, 2009; do NOT use TD on mobile device; use FF addon for TD; connect to web at work and home during all waking hours. New to GTD; probably will commit to 80% of principles 100% of time. RTM migrant which I had tried for 2 weeks; great to be here - great app, wonderful community. Abandoned Gcal as synch is too infrequent.
3 upgrades to TD that would most help me:
1) Internal calendar (or some other visual representation) that would give me a picture of my tasks.
2) Fewer keystrokes for repetitive/frequent uses e.g. account setting so you could opt out of having to confirm that you want to delete task. More keyboard control so you don't need to switch to mousing.
3) Expanded functionality for multi-task entry so would be quicker to do a mind-dump and get tasks/subtasks to proper place.

Thx Vin for starting this, I've been curious myself.
Edward

Vin, the "m" and the "a" in your twitter link are reversed, so it takes you to a nonexistent page.

For some reason I figured you were from Kansas City :D

@The Pope, I'll take your word for it, but I am skeptical.

I'm surprised how many of us are on facebook. I found a fan group, but there is no Toodledo page. Maybe there should be.

Darn. I was so curious to see what The Pope's todo list looked like. And which tasks had due dates etc ...

Heya, it's been awhile since I've been here, but since I heard news of a forum update I decided it was about time I stop in for a visit. (And wow, I'm so pleased with how much has been improved since I was here last!) Cool thread; I'll play too.

Where do you live?
Windsor, Ontario, Canada

What do you do?
I am currently finishing my grad degree in physics (my thesis is a mathematical exploration of quantum entanglement with relativistic boosts), intent on starting a business soon afterwards in which I tutor, write, and photograph, all as ways to inspire more people to appreciate physics.

Where can I find you on the web?
My kinda-rarely updated blog: Qrystal.name
My often-updated twitter feed
The haiku excerpts from my twitter feed
...and my facebook I use only for people I actually know. I would certainly become a fan of a Toodledo page if there was one, though!

I've been here for quite a long time... since Oct 2007 maybe? Pro since March 25, 2008. I mostly use Toodledo for keeping track of the things I *want* to do (or will do Someday/Maybe). It's the place I do my GTD mind dump, and even where I process the tasks, but it's not where I keep my Active tasks.

When I'm ready to move my tasks to Active status, I take them out of Toodledo and put them into LiquidPlanner (<-- referral link that tracks my recommendations) so I can judge whether I have time for them, or see when they'll be complete, or break them down into a series of steps and substeps. LiquidPlanner has two powerful ways to view tasks: one shows everything in priority sequence (with drag and drop reordering), and the other is organized into folders and subfolders and sub-sub-ad-infinitum. These aspects make LiquidPlanner great for project planning, and great for planning my day and my week too, but I still prefer Toodledo as the trusted system to enter ALL my ideas, thoughts, potential projects, and tasks that don't need to be scheduled quite yet. (However, now that Toodledo has more flexible alerts, this may change!) I wonder if the two systems I love could ever link up and work together...

Last tidbit about me: I think I have a tendency to ramble, certainly when I get to writing on web forums anyways. Oops! :P

Hi! I'm a lurker.

Name and place: Marissa - Live in Boston, MA

What I do: I'm a WAHM with a two year old and an art business. I was totally overwhelmed by chaos before finding GTD and Toodledo and a month in and I'm loving it! I noticed an improvement the first week. My only regret is not reading GTD when I heard of it a year ago.

Where can you find me?
Everywhere! With an online business I have to be all over and that takes some discipline that I had before becoming a parent and am getting back.
