DEVONthink anniversary and the Manifesto for Ubiquitous Linking

As a policy, CogSci Apps does not play favorites amongst apps with which it integrates. However, as a general rule we favor apps that are linkable with proper automation. Several app developers and professors, including myself, originated the Manifesto for Ubiquitous Linking, and many others have signed it (if you haven’t yet, please do.) The manifesto basically asserts that, through automation and the user interface, users need to be able to link the data of the software they use.

If you are disappointed that Evernote broke your automation, and worried about what it might break next, you may be interested to know that on the anniversary of DEVONthink turning 20, DEVONthink has a discount promotion Apr 29, 2022 – May 2nd, 2022.

Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, CEO of DEVONtechnologies, believes in the importance of automation and data linking. In fact, he is a co-originator of the Manifesto for Ubiquitous Linking. It is no surprise that Hook and DEVONthink integrate very well together. One of our next integrations with DEVONthink will be to provide deep PDF linking from Hook.

Happily, DEVONtechnologies wrote:

“It was on a rainy April night in 2002 when Christian and Eric let DEVONthink 1.0 see the light of the internet for the first time …” But no worries, we won’t bore you with the whole history of DEVONthink from the days when its brain-in-a-fishglass only knew very few document types to the excavation of the ammonite that became its logo and to where we are now. Fact is, this month we are celebrating its 20th anniversary.

While we wallow in memories and remember those who accompanied us on our way, we don’t want to leave you standing before the door but ask you to come in and join us.
