  1. The issue with Thumbtack and Google Notebook is these are really high end clipping solutions. If you're out in the field and you want to jot down pure information: either writing something to yourself or transcribing (like taking notes in class or a meeting) – these tools really don't solve that. They are great for copy/paste jobs but they don't help you get information down fast or accurately…I finally found something that actually helped me transcribe notes online.If you want a pure text note taking solution that is absurdly quick, barebones, and focuses on data entry check out http://www.ayenotes.com for taking notes online.AyeNotes was wired for text only notes – sort of the use you describe in your article. Its key feature is that it provides clips for frequently used strings. These can be templates you type, terms you use (action items, research, etc.), or it can be programmer-esque things like HTML and Markdown. The site also autosaves the work and provides keystroke. If you have the site remember the login, everytime you go to http://www.ayenotes.com to take notes online you are dropped right into the new note screen. To get your data out, you can email or download the note in multimarkdown format.
