Hi. I'm looking for a web-based research and writing tool to help me organize and aggregate news articles, blog posts, links and other web-based resources for a writing project. I've searched around a bit, EndNote Web from Thomson-Reuters looks promising but I can't get a straight answer on individual pricing (seems geared for site-wide licenses)....so I'm assuming it's pricey.

What tools have you had good experience with? Thanks in advance.

You might want to take a look at this company:
http://www.mendeley.com/

It's free to download and works both online and off. It's a small
start-up based in London. The team that work on it are really lovely
people too

If you're a Firefox user then maybe Zotero might be of use:

All the best.

I also have Zotero, and I like it.

Google Notebook is another option: http://www.google.com/notebook/

was stopped:
