Your Brain is Bigger Than Your Head
There's been a lot of changes in my life these past few months. Let's dive right in:
I stepped down from my day-to-day responsibilities at CoreStreet. After much soul-searching I decided that, while government-focused security and identity programs have their certain charms, I wanted to do something more mass-market focused. I'm still on the board of CoreStreet and involved as an advisor and general curmudgeon. CoreStreet was an awesome experience and I'm proud of the work we did. The company is in great hands now and I expect big things from it in the future. More on this later.
After nineteen years in Boston, I moved to California. One more year and I would have been officially "from" New England, so it was now or never. We're now living in San Jose in a giant outdoor mall. It's weird, but good. But weird. More on this later.
I became the CEO of EverNote. We make software that's going to let several zillion users capture, recall and share all their memories; basically a high-tech "external brain" that frees your normal brain up to do more interesting things.
There's a nice meme around this developing in the media in recent weeks. Clive Thompson wrote a good feature in last month's Wired and David Brooks picked up the theme in the New York Times a few days ago. Just this morning, Chris Morrison wrote about the "outside brain" in a nice VentureBeat article about us. EverNote is a great company that's been around for a few years and I'm thrilled to be on board for all the big changes coming in the next few months. Much more on this later.

Oh yeah, I pretty much spend the entire day going from spa to spa. In between spa treatments, I work out, mountain bike, recycle and get plastic surgery. One of these days I'll go into the office.
