Dwayne has posted a four part review of his GTD Odyssey, which includes ClearContext. The series starts here and the use of ClearContext starts on part 2. There's also some good discussion of the TWC system.

Overall I like the GTD white paper. The one quibble I would have is that when you get to the Project Designation section, you are not using GTD-style projects, but rather assigning messages to "Areas of focus" like "Work" "Management" "Prospects".
It raises the question of whether CC is really suitable for managing 50-75 GTD types projects ranging from "Get Tires Changed" to "Reorganize Department".

Personally the one area I have been unable to get CC to work as a GTD tool is in the area of weekly review.
When I use the actionview to see what projects are missing next actions, it shows me all projects, whether completed or not. The only way I can remove a Project (Topic) from actionview when that project is complete, is if I go through and remove the Topic from each of the dependant tasks and appointments. very time consuming. Would love to have some way to solve that issue.

Thanks for your comments.

In my zeal to get the paper out I reused a graphic I had made previously for the website in non-GTD context. I think this was a mistake in the graphic, but shouldn't reflect whether or not IMS is suitable for Topic listing. It's my belief that the Topic selector makes IMS perfect for assigning lots of Topics.

Personally the one area I have been unable to get CC to work as a GTD tool is in the area of weekly review.

We plan to address many of these issues in our next major release as we add additional project management capabilities to the application. Watch our weblog for more detail.

A couple of notes:

Steve Hebert has posted his experience applying ClearContext to GTD.

We've updated our product plan here. Per my earlier reply to Craig in this thread, we've got some exciting stuff coming in the realm of personal product management.

Craig has posted a review of how he uses IMS v4 to implement his trusted system:

"Recently ClearContext released version 4 of the Information Management System, and with this release I finally uninstalled the Netcentrics add-in and have moved snugly into ClearContext as my sole workflow tool. What finally tipped the scale for me was the introduction of the Dashboard, a central hub where I can view all my appointments, email messages and tasks according to project. This welcome addition was what turns CC into a GTD powerhouse."
