(Archived) Evernote Turns 5 Years Old

Recommended Posts

Only another 95 years to go for the "100-year company" (although I think your fire insurance coverage may expire before that due to incandescent confection-related claims..)

 

Many Happy Returns!

 

:D

Are they microwaving Peeps over at HQ?

Little green elephant peeps?!?!?

 

Microwaving peeps is pretty cool. Also microwaving grapes and CDs/DVDs. At work, and definitely not with my microwave. :)

Yeah, I didn't realise till quite recently how early I was - shard 1 and all that.

 

It was really nice of them to ship me a green aston martin as a 5th birthday present.

Happy Birtdhday Folks,

 

Great to know I'm Number 961 of more than 65 Millions users! Awesome achievement!

Only I had to re-register recently after I lost my initial password (silly me!...)

 

Makes me remember the days of pre-web versions of evernote with the infinite strip of notes...

 

Again happy birthday and many happy returns!

 

best,

 

Christian

Before it got to 10,000 this whole place was green and we used to let our kids play out in the street.

Well, compared to many here I'm apparently a mere pup (399,953).  Still, I know that Evernote has become an irreplaceable part of my increasingly paperless life.

 

Happy Birthday, elephant people!

Ummm.  My oldest note is already 5 years 2 months.  Soft pre-launch period for Evernote?

I'm 42,902

Since I'm migrating notes from previous incarnations (IE, Palm), and changing the created date to match the date of the note (if able to be determined), the date of my "oldest" note is (at this point)  7/13/1979.

Where do you find your number?

 

It's emailed to you.

 

Not me...not yet.

" the Evernote web service launched into open beta on June 24, 2008"

 

http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2008/06/24/evernote-public-launch/

June 24, 2008

"Big news today: Evernote is now in Open Beta and we’ve rolled out many changes, including premium accounts.

Four months ago, we introduced the invitation-only private beta of the new Evernote service.  Our goal was to get about 10,000 people to use the system so we could fine-tune our servers and try out new features.  We were blown away by the response and watched with equal parts of glee and horror as the closed beta users count passed 10,000, then 25,000, then 50,000…  By the end of the four months, over 125,000 people had participated in the closed-beta!  Luckily, our hardware, software and team held up with only minor incidents of spontaneous combustion."

Feb 21, 2008

Big news today, we officially launched our invitation-only beta for the all new Evernote Service. Read all about it in TechCrunch. There are only a limited number of beta invites available right now, but we’ll be releasing more in the coming days and weeks.

 

 

So I guess I jumped in 1-2 months into the closed beta.  

Scary how time has flown.

Congratulations!

 

5 years

I don't get it. I was using Evernote in late 2004 or early 2005. And here is the post to prove it.

 

My user number is in the 58,000 range, which out of 65,000,000 isn't bad, but honestly, it should be in the sub-100 range.

Ahhh... nice CWB. This is the page I remember back in 2004. Evernote the app is definitely older than 5 years, by roughly 5 years. Evernote the new company may only harken back to 2008, but I've been with the app for long before that.

Back then, Evernote had note templates, not just the big white space. Here is an example of a Phone Log template. And it had the never-ending roll style with the dates on the side. That was just removed a few years ago, sadly. I liked that little feature.

And this guy has been at Evernote since 2005, very early on with the 1.0 public release. I wonder if he knows he has really only been with the company 5 years and not 8?  :D

LOL. I think the numbers are a little bit arbitrary, but don't they come from the launch of the current version of Evernote (http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2008/06/24/evernote-public-launch/)?

Or the company runs on Unix/Linux the company timelines are case sensitive.

EverNote /= Evernote

So the product name change, reset the odometer.

To clarify (or muddy further) things, the 5 years is from when EverNote became Evernote. ;)

 

And only the first million users will receive their user number via email, however, we'll be happy to look it up for you in support :)

That email made my day.  Hard to believe it's been that long.  My first child was born in June of 2008 and that's a pretty eye-opening experience.  Really hit home how disorganized I was and how ill-prepared to be a parent.  So glad I found Evernote only a few short months later.  I'm still a mess, but with Evernote there is always hope!

Congratulations!! Thank you for changing our lives for the better. I would be so disorganized, frustrated and have a LOT more papers to lose and pile up if it weren't for evernote. So thank you from the top, center and bottom of my heart. I have told many people about Evernote and what it has done for me. Consider me a disciple.

Hi All

 

I am #13,314.  I still have version 2.2.2 (156801) dmg file because I was using that version for years. This year I decided to try version 5 on my Snow Leopard.  I settled for version 3.0.2.  This year I went to Version 3.3.0 because some of the posters said that 3.3.0 had an easier interface and kept all the features.  At least I'm not the only Evernote user still doing it old school.  Happy Birthday, Evernote!  It's a great app.  A special nod to all you posters. You help so many lurkers such as me. Your knowledge and patience is truly appreciated.  Thanks Nightstalker for discussing version 3.3.0.  I like it even better than my 2.2.2  LOL!
