Recapping Our Time at the Evernote Trunk Conference
Recently I had the privilege to attend the second annual Evernote Trunk Conference (ETC), participating with the ScanSnap team at their booth. Wow, what an easy task that was. All I had to do was stand at the ScanSnap booth with my laptop and show people how easy it was to scan things using the scanner. What an easy job.
I spent the day demoing for show attendees, highlighting how easy it is to scan directly to Evernote from ScanSnap. I had an effective approach, where I would take attendee’s business cards or show badges, say “poof, nothing up my sleeve,” and then proceed to show them just how easy it is to scan a document and then access it anywhere once it’s in Evernote. Let me tell you, most everyone we demoed for were in awe by how easy it all worked.
The best part was having direct interaction with the wonderful ScanSnap team. What a great bunch of people. It made me even more excited about being the Mac Squad member for ScanSnap.
And the Evernote Trunk Conference wasn’t too shabby either. This was their second year hosting the conference, which was atteneded by at least 800 people, in lovely San Francisco.
Phil Libin, CEO and President of Evernote, facilitated the keynote session. He is always entertaining (to say the least). There were sessions all day long, with break out sessions to meet with some of the Evernote partners. I had the opportunity to meet Brian Berson, the CEO of FileThis, an application that allows you to manage all your documents.
My favorite part of the conference were the demos of the finalists of the Evernote Devcup Championship: EverClip, KustomNote, EV and Live Minutes. What great products Evernote is adding to their partnership. Be sure to check them out in the Apple App store or in Evernote’s Trunk section.

I met new people, showed them how easy and fun it was to be a user of ScanSnap and I got to be a girl geek. What more could I ask for? Showing folks how simple the software is to use and how it works seamlessly with Evernote to keep things organized was a piece of cake.
Thanks again for reading. My next post will be about an upcoming event called the 19th annual Mac Computer Expo. If you live in the SF Bay Area, mark your calendars for 10/6 and check out the event here: http://www.maccomputerexpo.com/
