This is one of those tools that grows in usefulness the more you use it. It’s basically a mini wiki that runs on your computer and I use it grab little snippets of daily information which I can tag or archive.
I began using it just to grab notes on telephone conversations and I liked it because it lives in a Firefox tab in my browser, which is basically where I live. It grew from there and it can be modified to set up a fairly decent GTD (getting things done) interface. I previously used a great little bit of software called Treepad (and later Evernote) to hold things like passwords, snippets of text, to-do lists etc. but the nice thing about Tiddlywiki is that it’s there in the browser, just an .html file which you can search very quickly and easily.
It allows anyone to create personal SelfContained hypertext documents that can be posted to a WebServer, sent by email or kept on a USB thumb drive to make a WikiOnAStick. Because it doesn’t need to be installed and configured it makes a great GuerillaWiki.
