So I took Jorge’s advice and tried out Webnote to see if it might be what I’m looking for in terms of an online OneNote type app. It’s actually pretty wiki-ish in that anyone can add to your note page (if they know they URL.) You can drag your notes around to organize them, change the colors, and it has a filter where you can put in a word and bring up only those posts that contain it. Good for keywords. And the best is that there is an RSS feed to your notes. Interesting.
But here’s what it or anything else like this needs: a one-click toolbar button that lets me just highlight something on a page and have it automatically saved to my note file with a link. Now that would be very, very cool. And, I’d also like to be able to save to a folder of notes. I mean I know I can create as many note pages as I want, but I don’t want to have to constantly be making bookmarks on all my computers to remember how to get back to them. And finally, I want to be able to save graphics too.
But, hey, it’s a decent start.

A one click browser button should not be to hard; one just needs to find the URL and the parameters sent by the script when it is sent from their site. I would try one but where is the time??
