For the 3rd time I had the opportunity to interview Phil Libin (CEO for
Evernote) during the Leweb conference in Paris. This time though I did it in video so I am able to present you with sounds and images !
You can view the full video on YouTube below.
You can also get the audio file to listen to it on your mobile device or computer by subscribing to the
RSS feed or via the iTunes link to the show.
Subjects covered during the interview :
The launch of Evernote Business (in 7 countries as of December 2012)
New features coming up in Q1 2013
And last but not least, the Evernote Socks !
During Leweb, Evernote also held a workshop which was in fact some kind of Press conference open to anyone to ask questions to Phil and to John McGeachie (VP Sales). I published my verbatim notes from that workshop in
that blog post
For your information, the 2011audio interview of Phil is available in episode
and the 2010 interview is in
this blog post
Until the next time, happy evernoting !
In the next episode of the Channel I will release the video interview I did with Phil at
Leweb. In the meantime here’re some videos worth watching.
The talk between Loïc Lemeur and Phil on the big stage :
An interesting interview from
[LeWeb’12] Phil Libin, Evernote par frenchweb
3 questions to Phil by France3 :
Speakers : John McGeachie (VP Sales) and Phil Libin (CEO)
“The design is the most important thing”
No design responsible in the board but Phil is the only employee
More formal product for education to come
Pilote school in Spain using Evernote
Security : 2 factor authentication to come
Finer granularity in the API to control rights given to third party application
77% 1st experience of Evernote is done on mobile
We try to be featured on every platform so we get free ads this way
Ways to determine which type of account you have
API for relative notes
Business specific API to allow application to view all the notes of the company
Average upload capacity : growing
4 Gb / month when Evernote Business 2Gb for the user +2Gb for the company
“No tricks philosophy”
“We don’t want to be a disk drive in the cloud”
No real-time editing down the road because it is usually a bad experience for users. Plus Gdocs does that really well.
Indexing of Office docs coming soon
Some things are coming with the Google API because many people at Evernote uses Google tools
Prediction : “In 3 years, I will have glasses with info in there”.
Evernote Business is launched in 7 countries today
No group right management to allow access to specific notebooks
Hundreds of thousands of Smart Notebooks sold : big success
Some people are using future dates to have the note at the top internally at Evernote. This will be fixed by providing a way to flag a note.
Due dates are coming ! First quarter 2013.
Full windows redesign will be launched next year
