More signs of momentum in Austin:? I'm a fan of Evernote, and in particular I think they've been smart about their application development strategy.? But today recently came news that Evernote is opening a development lab in Austin, which is great news for Austin, and hopefully for Evernote as well.
Credit to Austin Startup for bringing it to my attention first - there's also an article on the Austin-American Statesman.? I also learned something new from the Austin Startup post:
Note that both Rich and Evernote?s CEO Phil Libin are no strangers to Austin; during the early 2000?s they spent their time at Vignette.
I didn't realize they were previously at Vignette.? Nice Austin connection.? They're getting started the right way - hosting a happy hour downtown and getting their job postings up.
Coming next week, several startup-oriented events, culminating in Capital Factory's Demo Day '11, and the ATX Startup Crawl afterward.
