"Personal Information" could be a wide net, and could include almost
anything. My browser bookmarks are personal information, no? In the
context of the acronym PIM, "Personal Information" usually means
contacts, calendar, and todo list.

Right. It does [mostly] what you want from a UI perspective, but it is
not KDE related. This is why I suggested that you ask on the Zim list.
You did not state that you are only looking for KDE solutions. In
fact, most of the example software that you listed was not KDE
