I use a digital notebook for precisely what you describe. For the
Mac, I use Circus Ponies' NoteBook;, on the PC side, Microsoft
OneNote. My notebooks are set up with numerous dividers (just like a
3-ring binder) with a couple dozen categories and subcategories. When
I find something useful, whether it's on a webpage, in an e-mail, or
some other document (in essence, anything digital), I highlight the
text and images, then "clip" it to the appropriate page in my NoteBook
(this can be done directly from the application I'm working in -- no
need to open NoteBook). The clipped information includes a reference
to the original material as well as a clickable link back to the source.
Because clipping is so quick and I don't have to break my train of
thought, I find I'm more likely to do it, and I know that that problem-
solving tip or quotable quote will be there (and already categorized)
when I need it. In addition, notebooks created in either NoteBook or
OneNote can be shared publicly.
Hope this helps,
