Evernote: the potential for weirdness is large.


well, yes, I suppose if you scan everything in your life into your computer, I guess you could “recall” it all. Mostly, you’d recall yourself spending all day scanning things into your computer.

Am I wrong?

the company’s servers extract meaning from the image data, rendering Libin’s memories searchable.

When he wants to recall the cut of your jib, the name of the sake he ordered last week, the flight number for his recent trip to Vegas, or anything else, Libin can scan his Evernote account by date or keyword. If he searches on “salon writer,” for instance, he’ll come up with my business card, which includes those words. Because Libin can do this anywhere — from his computer or his mobile phone — the software has become, for him, a kind of Google for the real world.
