Automattic Acquires Simperium, The Y Combinator-Backed Data Syncing Startup Behind Simplenote
Jan 24, 2013

WordPress.com parent company Automattic has acquired Simperium, the startup that runs a data syncing platform and is also well-known for Simplenote, the personal note-keeping app that's been described as "a lightweight version of Evernote."

This combination of companies and applications is a mouthful... but I can see that the combination of a data syncing platform integrated with a note keeping app might change a lot of work habits.
