Your second brain?

At DigitalNow 2009, we presented Phil Libin, founder of Evernote, a revolutionary new tool that enables you to scan, copy, store, and share a variety of media through a variety of sources and then save it all in one centralized database. It's been said that Evernote is like having a second brain.

Evernote recently announced that it had raised $10 million from Morgenthaler Ventures and previous investors, from whom it had already raised $6.5 million. According to Libin, the money will be used to expand to more platforms and to move into Europe and Japan.

It seems that there are more than a few people who have need for the boost in brain power: Since being introduced in June 2008, Evernote has amassed more than 2 million users. Evernote works on the Web, with Windows and MACs, and can also be used with popular hand held devices. Learn more here.

I'm Lauren from Springpad. Since I saw that you were posting about your experience using Evernote, I thought I'd let you know about Springpad ( which is similar to Evernote in that you can upload any notes or clip websites and access all your stuff online or on your phone. But, we take it a step further by putting all the info you store to work for you in our free apps. For example, you can save recipes from any website and then have them all neatly organized in your recipe box ( and then use our free meal planner app to create a dinner plan and a complete list of ingredients. You can also keep track of all your wine notes (, keep a list of restaurants you want to try ( or easily store all your travel plans like confirmation numbers, maps, places to go, etc ( You can also set alarms to send emails or text reminders. Other great apps include a budget tracker, a meeting notebook, a holiday gift planner, a date night planner, and other useful tools to help people get organized. Would love to get your feedback or do a demo for you!
