    Interview with Evernote's CEO Ian Small

    Interview with Evernote's CEO Ian Small

    Jason talked with Evernote's CEO, Ian Small about how the company is reinventing its app by going back to its roots. 
    Anyone who has used productivity software is likely familiar with Evernote. Over the past few years, however, many people moved on as it seemed like Evernote "lost its way." After rebuilding the entire thing from the ground up, the company is adding features like task management and calendar integrations in the hopes that it might again become "an extension of your brain." 
    Jason and Ian talked about how Evernote got here, where the company and app are headed next, and why the whole thing just might work.
