I got in on the new Evernote beta today through
giveawayoftheday. I'm excited. The new version has a server back end with a web interface and it auto syncs to all your clients. Very cool. I'm currently testing the new web, windows, and mac clients. (BTW: I bought a mac). So far it is working well. The interface has changed a bit and differs between Windows and Mac. There are some features still missing and others not yet polished, but it is looking good. I imported about 200 notes from my existing database and synced them up. My tag hierarchy didn't come across - it got flattened out, but everything else looks good. The web version even does in image text searching like the client apps do. Cool. I think this hybrid type of desktop / web application is the future. You get the best of both worlds.

Back in my startup days my office mates and I had a tradition we called 'something cool'. When someone would come into our office that we hadn't seen for a while we would usually end our conversation by saying "hey, want to see something cool?" We would then proceed to show them something we hoped they didn't already know. These would usually be something like a new Windows or Linux trick, a new cool utility or macro or even a new web site we discovered. It was our way of 'sharing the wealth'
In the spirit of 'something cool'...
