I am an avid Evernote user. Everything I find interesting I clip it into Evernote and find it there whenever I need it. The biggest issue I’ve had, though, with this is the fact that you do not have an addon for iOS browsers (Chrome/Safari).
Well, not anymore :D
Today I’ve found a workaround that is actually quite interesting and easy to use.
Create a Keyboard shortcut with the webclipper code. I don’t use it generally, but you can do it by going to Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts (see the screen below).
Create a shortcut by naming it whatever you want (mine is called evwc, from EVernote WebClipper). It’s better to use a combination of letters that is not easy to find in websites, because then the autocomplete of Chrome will kick in and it will not work.
The code you need to put in the shortcut is this:
Hit Save, then get back to Settings -> General
2. Step 2
Go to Chrome/Safari and open the page you want to clip. Click on the top URL (this will select the entire URL), then write your shortcut name (evwc is mine), press SpaceBar and then press Go. It will open a
See the steps below:
At the end, you can see the Evernote window and.. that’s it! :)
Though the example above is shown on Chrome on iPad, it also works on Safari and on iPhones.
When you start building a product, as a programmer, you rarely think of marketing… and then you find out the simple truth: marketing is not easy.

I’m away from Bucharest for business along with one of my co-founders, Cristi, so it was only fitting that Elvis (the 3rd cofounder of MavenHut) went on and picked up a prize I won at Wall-Street.ro Gala for The Entrepreneur of 2013 (Younger Generation). It was great that Elvis picked it up because it’s a team effort (really, we are 3 co-founders, MavenHut exists because we all got together and created something great).
Even better was that one of the people I really admire, Radu Georgescu, was picked as the Entrepreneur for 2013 (Older Generation :D ).
Here is the article with all the winners, in Romanian.

One of the things you really need to do when you start up your company is to grow constantly. Do not stop the growth no matter what: pull all the resources into growth. Investors love this kind of proof.
If you don’t want investors, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t grow continuously. After all, it doesn’t hurt you.

Me and one of my co-founders are speaking at How To Web on Wednesday :) We are gonna talk about the lessons we learned taking MavenHut from 0 to 5 million users in one year.
If you are around, let me know :)
Ah, we speak from 3pm on Wednesday, ok? >:)
Just to let you know: these days, the guys at GOG.com sell lots of things at insanely reduced prices. The games weren’t expensive to begin with, but now they are even cheaper. I bought Neverwinter Nights 2, Planescape: Torment (again, since I already had it) at $1.99 and so on.
Go ahead, they are going through the same cycle and you can still buy (or even get for free) some great games of the past :)
We’ve met Steve Collins from Swrve in Ireland, while starting MavenHut. He has a really interesting entrepreneurial background (co-founder of Havoc, the physics engine), but he is talking in this video about how to make more money from the games you are building for mobile and social networks.
This is one of the best videos I’ve seen on gaming in a long time.
