Summary

Learn Zim: The Free Replacement for Evernote
And Solution to Chaos in Your Life

Abstract

Zim (http://zim-wiki.org) is a desktop wiki and a wonderful
piece of free software that competes well with proprietary
alternatives like Evernote.

As we get ready to head into 2014, why not use Zim to
bring some order to our lives? Zim can be used as a
topic-based notebook, organizer, document editor, journal,
collection manager, and more.

We're fortunate to have Brendan Kidwell as our speaker.
Brendan will start his talk with an introduction to Zim,
followed by an overview of use cases, with a series of
short demos about solving particular problems like:

+ task tracking
+ diary
+ drafting a paper
+ making a web site
+ syncing notebooks across computers
+ and more!

Based on audience interest, Brendan can also answer
questions about his experience building a Windows installer
for the app and contributing to this free software project.

Transportation & Parking

The Akamai office is a short walk from the
Kendall Square T stop and other public
transportation.

Metered parking is normally available near our location.
