Do you want a faster way to outline your information?

Do you save everything?

It's OK. We do too - whether it's web clips, emails, to-do lists, outlines, blog topics, random ideas, bill dates, code snippets or grandma's recipes.

But it just kinda gets lost?

Even the best tools (Gmail, Evernote, RTM) just become dump bins where priorities get mixed in with reminders piled on top of reference files.

Why not try a better way?

An easier way to save everything you want and trust that you can find it later. A faster way to get what you need, when you need it. A better way to manage information.
