This week, we’re happy to start sharing Digitwirl, a new video series from Carley Knobloch. I met Carley a little over a year ago when she heard a podcast that I recorded with David Allen (of Getting Things Done). A kindred geek girl and GTD fan, we connected immediately. I’ve been keeping up with Carley ever since then and when she launched Digitwirl earlier this year, I knew it would be a great how-to supplement for Geek Girls Guide readers.
So, enjoy! We’ll share a new twirl with you here once a week. We hope you enjoy these fast, helpful videos as much as we do.
In this week’s video, Carley introduces Evernote, which is one of those applications that EVERYONE I know raves about, but which I haven’t managed to find time to try. After seeing how she uses it to keep track of travel itineraries, business cards, photos and kids’ artwork I’m even more convinced that I really need to make time to check it out.
Digitwirl: Digital storage that keeps track of all the information life throws at you
Look around your house. Are you seeing stacks of papers that you keep meaning to go through? Boxes and files bulging with stuff you put there for safe-keeping, but couldn’t find what you need if your life depended on it? Don’t worry, we won’t judge, it’s the exact overload we were facing that made us think there has to be a better way.
Wouldn’t be amazing if you could store information you needed to remember in one place and more importantly, find it instantly, anytime, from anywhere? Good news! It exists, and it is a total game-changer. Evernote is a website, a free app, and an extension that builds functionality into tons of programs you already use.
If you can email it, scan it, type it, snap it, record it, or find it on the internet you can keep track of it all with Evernote. You won’t believe how simple it is to use. Watch the video, and then forget about forgetting important information ever again.
