More details and an approx. 12-minute interview with Evernote CEO Phil Libin at the article link below
“But Evernote is also a platform. There are APIs, and more than 10,000 developers have taken advantage of those APIs to extend both Evernote's and their own applications' functionality. Additionally, Evernote recently acquired Skitch, a nifty and useful application that lets you take and annotate screenshots. There's even a version of it for the iPad.
As Libin said: "It's a platform--but it's a platform for the world's memory." The idea is to take your information and make it that much more useful.
All of which begs the question: Where is Evernote heading? And, while we're at it, since both Evernote and Skitch are free (Evernote has a premium version with some added functionality), how does Evernote make money?”
