I started off several years ago with stacks and notebooks and a few tags. And I didn't dislike Evernote, but I could take it or leave it. Couldn't get up the energy to hate it.
Then I caught onto the idea of having 100,000 tags instead of 250 notebooks, and went the whole hog and tagged everything in sight, deleting notebooks once they were empty. And now I loathe Evernote (and I'm not that keen on OneNote, either, before you start). But others are raving about it, especially genealogists. I am a real clutterbug at home; I keep EVERYTHING, including old bus tickets, out-of-date magazines, the lot. So why would I hate something which saves everything you want it to and makes snipping from the web...well...a snip?
Maybe it's because it's so organised. At home, those old bus tickets can float around and land wherever they want. Evernote tags 'em, files 'em, makes 'em searchable, and BAM! there's no such thing as clutter any more. Maybe that's what it is. It's giving me an inferiority complex.
If you like Evernote - fine. If it's the most perfect solution in the world to your life's problems - fine. If you simply couldn't live without it, and don't know what you did before you found it - fine.
So what's wrong with me? Why don't I feel the same way?
