In an effort to get myself to actually do some things, I've set up Pivotal Tracker and Workflowy. The first is a project-managey software, the second is a big outline on the internet. I think Tracker is made for software, so I'm not sure how well it will work for this. I like Workflowy, though; it's pretty minimalist. Just a huge collapsible/expandable outline. Tree-structured thoughts. Well, time will tell how well they both turn out.
At any rate, I've started actually doing more, which at this point still consists of "looking things up." things I've learned include:
- you can get a 6-month India visa for something like $70 or a 5- or 10-year one for $150. (who would get the 5-year? I guess I'll find out more things when I apply.)
- apparently, you can go from India to Pakistan, and even at the Wagah border near Amritsar (and therefore near the Wagah Border Ceremony). However, this is kind of too bad. (I mean, bad that they were hurting themselves in the first place, not bad that they're stopping this amusing-but-painful exercise.)
EDIT, 8 months later: Workflowy has been great. I recommend it for everything. Pivotal Tracker was indeed too heavyweight, and they started charging, so I dropped that.
