ideally, i'd like to be able to link from other objects in my

could jump to for example a contact or vice versa.


Regarding OmniFocus specifically, I find that the bidirectional links  
to Yojimbo work just fine.


i) Dragging and OmniFocus item to the drop dock creates a new note  
item containing a functional link to OmniFocus.
ii) 'Copy as link' from OmniFocus and 'Add Hyperlink...' in Yojimbo  
creates a functional link.
iii) 'Copy item link' from Yojimbo and pasting into OmniFocus creates  
a functional link.
iv) Dragging a Yojimbo note to OmniFocus creates a list of tasks with  
the text of the note - probably not the desired result (but possibly  
useful).

any thoughts or suggestions on tools or techniques?


With all due respect to Yojimbo--software that I live and die by--you  
might be better served by FileMaker's Bento (currently available as  
free beta test). Out of the box Bento incorporates Address Book and  
iCal data, ships with a number of templates that may suit (or be  
readily adapted to) your purpose, and uses the same SQLite backbone  
as Yojimbo.


Bento feels more structured to me--and I've yet to see how I would use  
it. But it may be the better tool for your purposes.


Best of luck!
