In one way or other I’ve been working on BrainTool my whole life. It’s an evolution of how I organize and manage my own information space. After a long career as a software developer, and a longer one as an architect and engineering manager, I wanted to get backing to building things with my own hands. I spent some time exploring opportunities at the intersection of Healthcare IT, Machine Learning and UX* but along the way realized that the time was right to build BrainTool as a product for general use.
These days knowledge workers spend most of their time in a browser. Today’s browsers are amazing tools, but they don’t provide support for organizing and managing all of your online stuff. BrainTool provides that support.
