EverNote - Electronic Tool for Notetaking & More

Bonnie Shucha of WisBlawg offers an enthusiastic review (she calls it awesome!) of EverNote, a free electronic tool on which "you can easily store and quickly access typed and handwritten memos, webpage excerpts, emails, phone messages, addresses, passwords, brainstorms, sketches, documents and more!" [from the EverNote website]

According to Bonnie:

You take notes on what appears to be an endless digital roll of paper, thereby keeping all your notes in one place. You can create plain text notes or hand (actually mouse) written notes/drawings. Plus, you can clip Web content (either the whole page or just a highlighted portion) and Evernote automatically inserts a link back to the original content. Or drag and drop other documents into EverNote thereby creating a link to the document on your computer.

Each note can be assigned multiple categories (of your choosing) which you can use to filter the notes. Keyword searching the full text of notes is also available. Additional features include encryption, printing & emailing notes, import/export, locking notes and more.
