On first blush, this is an interesting tool. While in your browser, its one click to grab a block of text and save it along with the URL. It almost feels like using the Press-It tool to blog a web page in WordPress. Google Notebook has some of the features of del.icio.us and MyStickies, but it seems to lack the social bookmarking aspect of the former and the spatial marking of the page in context of the latter. I’m wondering if there is RSS of my notebooks, which would make it even more blog like.  I’ll try living with it for awhile.
