Make a note and store it online

Even if you have a great memory, you won't be able to remember everything. And there is so much to remember all the time: websites, tasks to do, work, meetings, new ideas or random thoughts. There are many handy websites and applications to store your notes online. Most of them also work with your phone, e-mail, Twitter etc.

Although I think it cannot replace the occasional scribbles & doodles in your notebook, it's a great way to save paper.

Evernote (my favorite)
Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your notable life using your computer, phone, and the web: type a text note. Clip a web page. Snap a photo. Grab a screenshot. Everything you capture is automatically processed, indexed, and made searchable. You can add tags or organize notes into different notebooks. Search for notes by keywords, titles, and tags. Evernote makes printed and handwritten text inside your images searchable, too.

NotePub
In brief, NotePub provides real time sharing and searching of notes with read/write permissions set for each note and user. NotePub is very straightforward, yet it lets you do most things you could with previous software concepts such as blogs, wikis, forums, email, chat, and social networks.
