A few random thoughts based on my own use of PmWiki as a general 
"Information sink":

Try and plan a wiki group structure for your information *before* you 
start entering data.

I have modified one of the addlink recipes to allow me to capture 
highlighted text from web pages. The information goes into a group 
called Scratchpad with pages named Scratchpad.yyyymmdd. If the page for 
the day already exists new text is added to the top. It is driven from a 
bookmarklet and works a bit like Google notebook.

I use categories and pagelists quite bit e.g. a pagelist to show all 
items in category FixMe in whatever group they exist.

If you are a "list" person the XToDo recipe is worth a look.
