Now that is in public beta, I can, in the true spirit of trying out a new tool, use that tool to talk about the tool itself! I'm going to use my account here to talk about about my discoveries relating to the underlying tool, Evernote. This year, I made a promise to myself that I would use the online-based note-taking and -storage tool more often, and settled on Evernote after reading Alexandra Samuel's book on Evernote during the holidays. (She also has tips for using Evernote for each month of the year.)

I'm slowly migrating everything from Simplenote, including my long list of command lines I refuse to remember and notes from the serial novel The Silent History, the latter I hope to publish as a wiki so that fellow readers can fill in some of the blanks.

Follow along with my joys and frustrations of using Evernote! I regularly use the iPad, iPhone, and Mac versions of the software, and whenever Evernote comes out with another official app that uses themselves as a backend, and I'm always on the lookout for interesting ways to integrate it with something else.
