Playing with Evernote

It’s been popular for 2 years, so I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth getting excited about Evernote.

I like Dropbox a lot. (A whole lot, but that’s another story.)

I’ve experimented with Google and Yahoo sites as a way of storing information online, and it’s just too much, because they’re not really filing systems as much as authoring systems. I want something like Dropbox, but for odds and ends.

Posterous and Tumblr aren’t really filing systems either, and, at a glance, they don’t really work for private information.

So I’m experimenting with Evernote. I’m intrigued with its purported ability to OCR text off the images I upload.

(D’oh! that reminds me: I figured out, eventually, how to get Tesseract working. It was about a half day of work, but when I finished, for the sample documents I fed it, it did better than I.R.I.S. Your mileage may vary. I need to locate and write up my notes.)
