Anything that we think is stupid right now, we want to make it a little bit smarter. Evernote Business is aimed at making companies smarter. Meetings are a giant source of bad decisions and stupidity; meeting culture has become completely corrupted over the past 20 years, so we’re working on that.
Phil Libin, CEO von Evernote in einem Interview mit Wired.
Another way to think about it is session lengths. Microsoft Office was the definition of productivity for like 25 years. The average session length was probably an hour or two. You would sit down at your PC and you would like type stuff on Word or Excel. Then smartphones shrank the average session time to like two minutes, maybe five minutes. That’s part of why I think Microsoft is continuing to have a such a hard time getting into mobile, because it’s a fundamentally different way of thinking. “What can I do to be productive two minutes at a time?” It isn’t Office.
Over the next couple of years the different devices are going to shrink the average session times to seconds. So the session time for Glass is going to be a few seconds. The session time for your (smart) watch is going to be a glance, just like a second. You will have to come up with new use cases, new definitions of what it means to be productive. That is going to be just as different from mobile phones as mobile phones were over desktops.
