Evernote looks like a cool application, and for at least a few more hours, you can get it for free via the Giveaway of the Day site. At first glance, this seems like the closest software I’ve seen to the original “Brain Attic” concept I’ve held for years.
My most pressing questions are (big surprise) around data storage. It seems that in the version 3 beta all the data is kept on a remote server, which makes me a little uneasy. In what format is the data kept? Is it some format that will be readable in 50 years? If the Evernote corporation goes offline or out of business, do I lose everything?
I’ll keep reporting back here with my discoveries and experiences. -m
