Are we moving our Clutter online with 'Tripit' and other services? Backpack will do!

In the past 24 hours only, I read about Tripit and a couple of other services that offer to help you manage things online instead of on paper.

Tripit as you might guess offers to be the online repository for all details of your business or leisure travel.

Another site I noticed (whose name I cannot remember, I apologize) wants to do the same for your family schedule and activities, keeping everyone on the same page.

Both services are well designed and well intentioned.

The only issue is I can already do most of these things using my Backpack account.

Should I slice all my activities like cold cuts and use a different place for each of them which in turns requires additional login, profile and the whole nine yards.

Are we creating a new clutter, online this time?
