Contextual to-do lists

One of the problems with GTD is that many who write about it love talking about the tools more than what they actually accomplish with the tools. Alex Payne has some ideas about where to put to-do lists, arguing that they should live in the context in which they are done. Development tasks in tickets, conversations in email, blog posts in the drafts folder/status, tabs or bookmarks for unread articles. Writing a list of topics to write about so far hasn't worked for me, so I'm going to stop doing that.
