Agents: Gathering The Important Stuff
Some people worry that they don't fully understand Tinderbox agents.
You don't need to understand them completely. Nobody understands them completely: this is research. You need to understand them well enough to use them, well enough to let them help you with your work. That's all.
One of the key roles for agents is simply to gather some notes that are especially important or urgent or need attention. For example:
Done=false & DueDate<"today+1 week"
Done=false & DueDate<"yesterday"
Agents like this let you keep your notes organized naturally -- by project, or location, or team assignment. The agent gathers copies of notes that fit its criteria. Open an outline window focused on that agent, and you've got a sorted, up-to-the-minute list of the items that demand attention.
