WOIM is a methodology to describe anything – any state, item(s), pattern, action, process, transition, program, instruction set etc. So, you can use it as an outliner, a ToDo list handler, a process design tool, a data modeler, or any other way you want to describe something.
I just released version 1.3
A few minor errors were corrected and one important feature was added; The ability to reuse any part of a WOIM list based on context. It is now very easy to write a process that can be reused without using a reference or duplicating the process. An example would be if you wanted to tell someone to first do something with “apples”, then do the same sett of actions with “oranges” and then with “grapes” (like peeling them and cutting them to small pieces or something). You would simply write the procedure like this:
[apple,orange,grapefruit] Make ready for putting it into the cake Peel Cut into small pieces Sprinkle some sugar on the pieces
The document describing WOIM in detail is available at the usual place.

Oh, that’s your work – partially. Nice. I wish I had more time to read it for real. At least I’ve put it in ReadItLater.
It something like 85% my work 🙂
Wow, you are quite an organizer! That would seem to align very well with energizer, too. In fact, I bet that something to do with “organize” is well up there on your personal admin scale, along with “seek” and “energize.” Just guessin.’ 🙂
Actually, I am quite disorganized 😉
WOIM is my way of compensating for my flaws.
Gotcha. Well, I myself have an affinity (and a bit of a bent) for organizing and that was why I appreciated your ideas – and thought I had spotted a kindred soul!
Has this WOIM system caught on and spread to a lot of other businesses or whatever, yet?
Yes, there are users. The VIM plugin has some 750 downloads (and that is a small portion of the audience for WOIM). There is an upcoming article in a Mexican magazine.
You may still bond with the (somewhat oppressed) part of me that fancies organizing stuff 🙂
Sounds very successful, as I would have guessed. But don’t get me wrong – I don’t actually understand much of the technical stuff! Just your wonderful examples of organization. (And yeah, “fancy” is the operative term for me too. So bonded it is.
P.S. You should post that Mexican article when it comes out, if you can.
I will post a link to it (it is in Spanish…)
