A WorkLife FrameWork for Mathematica

An unusual add-on to Mathematica this week- A WorkLife FrameWork claims to be a "creative workflow toolset for Mathematica".

That turns out to be a diverse set of tools such as ToDo management, blog creation, RSS reading, slide show creation, journal creation and more.

I can't see anyone buying Mathematica to replace Outlook or similar tools, but if you use Mathematica a lot, and want to stay in one environment, then it is probably useful.

Info on the Wolfram site and also on the original developers site.

Hi,

Thanks for this mini-view of the release of A WorkLife FrameWork! I'd like to point out that it isn't my intention that the product should replace something like Outlook or another PDA-like tool. Hence the name FrameWork in it's title rather than Organizer. Rather it's a toolset to use within Mathematica to manage your technical work and to reach out from Mathematica to many of the other tools that you use. And, of course, there's a bunch more to go along with this. One can get a sense of some of this by skimming through the documentation on the product's web site at:

I am also writing a continuing blog on the product (just started) at

Thanks again!
