The Many Uses of Evernote

I'm even starting to see some specialized lists for particular professions:

The good list is maintained by Evernote itself.

Update 11/5/2009:  Andrew Maxwell posted 100 Different Evernote Uses.  Great List.

This is a list of what I use Evernote for, and ideas I've garnered from the web.  When anyone asks on Twitter what do you use Evernote for, I'm going to send them here.
