Reminders made simple
« on: December 28, 2006, 10:49:12 AM »
About 3 years ago, my father introduced me to a relatively novel site called http://www.easyreminders.com. This site, for a small fee (15.99 for 3 years), gives you the ability to schedule reminders for yourself as far out as you need. There are various options available to schedule these reminders, and you can add as many people as you like to the email reminder system. See the screenshot below

I highly recommend this site. It has helped me out numerous times.

Thanks, looks like a good addition to RememberTheMilk (->  http://www.donationc...p?topic=5584.new#new) for those that want to automatically remind others.

My friend pointed out to me a new site the other day that looks interesting and is also in the business of reminding you.

They are currently only in beta, but that just means they want to be known as a Web 2.0 company.  ;)

Another site is ReminderFeed.

REMINDERFEED HISTORY

I subscribe to a number of blogs. One of them is Steve Pavlina's blog. In November 2005, he started the Million Dollar Experiment. The purpose of the experiment is to use "the intention-manifestation model" to bring a Million Dollars into the lives of everyone that holds the Million Dollar Intention. The "Intention" is a phrase that he wrote which you are suppose to focus on for one minute every day.

In one blog entry he mentioned that some people were having trouble remembering to do the intention every day. He recommended using a feed. And that's when it popped into my head. I should create a ReminderFeed for the Million Dollar Intention, one that shows up in my reader every day.

The site came together fairly rapidly after that. I created a quick prototype over the Thanksgiving Holidays to prove it would work. A week later I commissioned Jeremy Baines of this side up to create a design. Within, four weeks of having the idea, ReminderFeed was born.

There is a no-nonsence website from Site Foundry to send yourself email reminders at some date in the future.

Reminds me of my co-workers brother who came up with a web app idea in 2002:
Remind Me To Kick Your Ass.com
http://web.archive.o...metokickyourass.com/

(archive.org mirror, as the original website was a class project, never to live again...)
