I don't disagree with this. I was mainly pointing out what I see to be incorrect assertions in the original post, namely that humans always organize knowledge hierarchically, and that categorization is hierarchicalization. If EverNote could only provide for one of these, then I'd vote for tags, as they are potentially a more powerful concept. As it is, hierarchical organization is not completely absent, since you can always organize hierarchically inside a single note (probably fine for creating a short paper on Shakespeare, per the example). In terms of organizing notes hierarchically, though, there's not much there. Yes, you can make hierarchies of tags, but if you make tag 'B' a subtag of tag 'A', then EverNote doesn't seem to be able to impute that notes tagged with 'B' inherit the 'A' tag as well (unless you tag them with 'A' explicitly). I'm not sure whether that's a drawback or not; I've only begun to experiment with hierarchical tags. So far, I don't find not having a lack of global hierarchical structuring tools a burden.
