Hi boB,

Org-mode is a lot of things. It is an outliner, a PIM, a brain-dump, a blog
engine, a website generator, a literate programming tool, it embeds a
simple DB and a featurefull spreadsheet, etc. I expect it shall soon
achieve sentience.

I like it because it is a plain text PIM that allows me to arrange my data
as I want it, to quickly and flexibly capture it, and because it lets me
employ my emacs-fu on my digital brain.

I'd be happy to answer any further questions you might have. But, 1) I
won't be prompt due to travel, and 2) if you write about org-mode, let us
go off-list as we've strayed from tutor's purpose.
