Overwhelmed by your research? Turn to Piggydb

Sometimes you can be overwhelmed by the amount and variety of information you uncover when you’re researching a project or a report. Using software to organize your information can help. At first glance, the web application Piggydb seems like a hybrid between a blog and a notebook application like Evernote that allows you to save information. But Piggydb puts its focus on the process of organizing information, which makes it what you might call an idea processor.
