Now, if My Software Only Had a Brain ... - New York Times

Now, if My Software Only Had a Brain ... - New York Times: "EverNote's big idea is the time band, a kind of chronological ruler that runs down one side of the screen. As each bit of information is stored, it is attached to its specific point in the great river of time. The underlying insight, similar to the work of David Gelernter, a computer scientist at Yale, is that sequence of arrival is one of the brain's fundamental organizing concepts. EverNote has a variety of other unusual features, many aimed at people who take notes in handwriting on tablet computers.
Onfolio's comparative advantage is in handling feeds of R.S.S., for really simple syndication, and other regular inflows of information. Its professional version also has many tools for publishing the information you've organized, in a blog or other formats."
