Making a List is a review of To-Do List by Sasha Cagen (Simon and Schuster, New York, 2007). But it also offers reflections that are worthy of being pursued further.
This does not mean I agree with the reviewer. To say that "List-writing ... embodies a paradigm shift" because (?) the "reincarnation of the list bears a striking semblance to a simplified weblog" seems to me a bit much. Lists are the oldest and most basic form of making sense of disparate information. They remain, even in their electronic form, very limited tools. But this does not mean they are unimportant or not worth thinking about further.
