There's a commercial application called MindManager that seems to address 
some of the user interface requirements for grabbing ideas.  I often use it 
for capturing ideas in meetings,  organizing information and/or activities.

It has an HTML export capability, but I've long felt that an RDF export 
would be really cool, especially if coupled with some wiki(-like) 
conventions for the textual annotations.  The application has built-in 
scripting capability (based on MS visual basic), so I think that exporting 
some basic RDF would not be too difficult.  Unfortunately, that's way down 
my priority list of things to do.
