Our Favorite Things - Evernote
We love our gadgets and our software over here at Geek | Chicago. Of course we do, we’re Geeks! I mean we really love them. We love them, not just for the “wow factor” or because they’re new, but we love them because of the promise they hold.
New software and new hardware hold the keys to new efficiencies, better ways to communicate, and simpler ways to organize, and pave the road to the future. When new technologies become old technologies, if they’ve done their job, their replacements are standing on their shoulders. New ideas beget more new ideas.
Back in March, Gini Dietrich, a personal friend and the CEO at Arment Dietrich, Inc. a PR firm specializing in online communication, reminded me how much I love Evernote on her site Spin Sucks. I had installed and begun to use Evernote sometime in early 2010, but wasn’t tagging (organizing) my notes in a way that allowed me easy access to them, as my brain emptied and my Evernote repository filled. I had the software on my Android-powered phone, and used the web client on my PCs, but only occasionally used in on my phone. When Gini talked about her love of journals, and the convenience of Evernote, my interest was renewed.
