Processing Information: Dashboard, Triage, Clusters, and Quick Item Entry

This section covers 4 out of 5 tenets undergirding Chandler's particular approach to processing and managing personal information. They include the notion of an universal 'Inbox' (Dashboard) where task requests, reminders, invitations, notes-to-self, notes from others and random thoughts are 'Triaged' and 'processed; user needs around lightweight organization, basically something more than an item, but less than a full-scale collection: an idea we've been referring to as Clusters (basically user-definable threads); and finally, explorations of a 'Command Line for Dummies' interface that combined with smart text parsing provides users with an easy way to dump information into Chandler without interrupting other workflows.
