How do we go about taking in more information, storing it and using it to our advantage?
The first step is to clear up some space, in our brains to make room for more knowledge. One way of doing this is to organize some of our personal intelligence in our chaotic, geeky lives. Along comes - Evernote.
Evernote is for people who are serious, people who like memories and people who enjoy being productive. It is a memory bank, a place to log notes about anything, and in exchange the end user is able to focus more directly on other things. Things that are hopefully making you smarter.
At the Xconomy Xchange forum last night, Evernote CEO Phil Libin, explained that - Evernote is like our external brain. It’s our permanent online brain. It has perfect photographic memory, and is a steal trap for anything you add to it. We really enjoyed how Morgenthaler Ventures partner Gary Little described Evernote as a “Google for our personal stuff” because you can keyword search through all your notes and find things that you vaguely remember, such as passwords, recipes, people you meet, instructions, etc.
The more you use Evernote the more useful it becomes, and the more space you will have to fill up that amazing human brian, and get smarter!
