Evernote Grabs $20 Million For Cloud-Based Notetaking: Tech News [GigaOM]

An interesting clarification, but I’m still not seeing how the relatively basic hypertext conceptual model embodied in Evernote is going to become “a global platform for human memory,” unless, to Phil Libin, that means the world’s biggest collection of virtual/digital sticky notes…

Update: Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, emailed us to clarify that the company has no plans to compete with Dropbox. “I love Dropbox, and we use them all the time at Evernote,” he said. “I think we’re much more likely to be integration partners than competitors. We don’t really focus on files, synchronization, etc.; we focus on human memories. Sure there’s some overlap, but we don’t really worry about it.”
