Would you pay / use web based sticky notes with the ability to import/export from multiple sources (this is all hypothetical) and
be searchable?

I think the marked is overpopulated. It looks like everyone writes their Notes application... Nothing original, nothing new, nothing to pay for.

I'd pay $10 per year to have a searcheable knowledge base available on all devices. When I find a good blog post or magazine article, I print it to PDF, or export as MHT,  or copy and paste and send an e-mail to myself. Or just bookmark it.

I use the internet since 1996, so I saw lots and lots of content going offline, magazines and sites ceasing to exist. I also exported content to read on my Palm before the smartphone existed. But I don't have a place, preferable with folders/labels and searcheable to store everything I liked about the subjects I want.

Nowadays I use dropbox and keep content in files. It's lacking a good search feature and labels (should I store this piece in Business, Marketing or People?).

I don't think it's a good idea to compete with Evernote, the major player on the note taking everywhere space...

I have developed a web based tool that pretty much does what you described without having to create files and is very searchable. I use it for myself which i guess is covered under fair use.

Wouldn't a tool like that violate copy right laws to save and serve content from other sources to a customer? I am just wondering
