I have heard folks from time to time talk about Evernote or reference It in passing in their social streams. Yet, I don’t recall using it or even kicking the tires. The horror.
What prompted this experiment? Oddly enough, it was ifttt.com and the listing of supported channels. One of the channels as you might have guessed is Evernote.
I also noticed my email style has looked more like Markdown since starting with VCE. That might be due to the need to reference things or the volume of information a particular email can contain.
So much for #noemail ;-)
On another front I am trying to pull together more content for fudge.org and bristled at using something that was Wordpress specific – it all tends to suffer from myopic application goals IMHO. So, Evernote seems like it a might be what I am looking for. It is notes — everywhere!
My dream scenario is create Markdown as notes in Evernote in a blog notebook and then use a plugin or series of plugins to pull RSS into fudge.org and render the markdown. I might have that wrong in ordering but that is my plan for now until I reach a failure.
Right now my ifttt.com recipes are more around social sharing tools that are image oriented. I have been concerned that all these twitter tweeted pics on services like twitpic are lost to the sands of random downtime or worse… Unavailable for capture at all.
