I love it! Makes the messy flow that is tangled in my head look smooth and simple. I love being able to drag and drop the blocks around and create board within board within board.

The late Steve Jobs once said: Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.

Evernote is great for clipping articles, tagging them, and finding them. The best part is the actual clipping portion which can pull stuff in different formats (simplified "reader" mode, or full page, etc). Very effective and useful

Evernote might be a piece of bloatware, but as a web content saving machine, it has no equal. I specifically like the ability of the web clipper to remove all superfluous content, like sidebars and ads, even going as far as just saving the text and images. I also like that it creates a local copy, so if a page goes offline, the content is still saved.

Have been using it for writing Help Docs for our customers (https://docs.airim.co/). It's easy to write on and articles are synced easily. But you have to be careful while pasting code snippets.

I've used Gitbook to create an internal documentation for developers. The end result looks neat and the writing experience is amazing. You could probably find self hosting options but it's much easier to get started with Gitbook.

Even with all the note taking tools available today, nothing comes close to the immediacy and simplicity of pen and sheet of paper. Most apps are filled with way too many options, excessive categorization, and fussy interfaces that slow everything down.
