BusyList

Andy and I started work on a simple little open source project for tracking tasks; it's called busylist. We wanted to experiment with Ajax, Python, and web service APIs, so we whipped up a basic system in a few hours. There is still quite a bit of work to be done, but it has been a great learning experience so far. An extremely alpha test version is available in subversion along with some instructions on the project's wiki pages. If you're interested, feel free to check it out (pun intended) and contribute if you like. It is an open source project after all.

I noticed you are using google spreadsheets as a backend. I have thought about doing something similar but for financial data. I'll let you know if I ever actually get around to it.

Sure thing Anthony, let me know what you come up with.

Also Andy has made some UI changes which make this look quite a bit better, so check that out if you are interested.
