Introduction to Org-Mode and Worg
Org-mode is a powerful system for organizing your complex life with simple plain-text files. It seamlessly integrates all your notes, mindmaps, TODO lists, calendar, day planner, and project schedules into a single system that can be easily searched (e.g. by grep), encrypted (e.g. by GnuPG), backed up and synced, imported/exported, and accessed on the go (e.g. on an iPhone or Android smartphone). It can even be used for authoring web pages and documents.
Check out some screenshots of Org-mode in action. See what people have to say about Org-mode, and read a few user stories!
Org-mode is distributed as part of the Emacs text editor and runs wherever Emacs runs, including on GNU-Linux, Windows, and Mac. Written by Carsten Dominik, it is currently maintained by Bastien Guerry and used by many helpful people who, like you, are desperate to get and stay organized. You can read more on how Org-mode is maintained.
