I also have a folder if the note cards referrence a larger document or huge picture that won't fit on the corkboard. I also sometimes use string to link cards together (although I haven't done that for a while because of the mess... Now I have sharpie marks/corner doodles). My real corkboard has a weight limit, but I don't think a digital one needs to worry about that (unless there was a "light" version and "heavy duty" version... I have a dry sense of humour).
In Windowed mode, it'd have a corkboard on the left and a pane on the left with different types of cards to drag onto the corkboard (Note Card and Picture, and possibly more later?). There'd be a slider on the bottom to change the zoom. The icon menu bar thing (at the top of most apps now) would have the standard "New," "Save," "Open," and I guess, "Add" and some other corkboardian like stuff.
Then you could fullscreen it, zoom in and out, and a bunch of other stuff (like Scribbles, but with notes instead). Most of the features would be limited to the menu bar (or HUD panels?).
The Note cards on the screen would have a fixed size. You can title them, and add text to the card. Double clicking on a card would bring up another window where you can type a whole document or essay for the card to contain. You can specify links to files or web pages (in the document and on the card?). Note cards could be dragged anywhere on the corkboard.
Picture cards would be resized to a reasonable size, but I guess the user should be able to increase the size if desired. They can be titled and will also have a document type thing associated with them when double clicked.
I'm thinking there should also be thumb-tacks to act as labels or something. Hover over a thumb-tack and a tooltip shows the label (when a notecard or picture is selected, the inspector would say what it's labeled). The user would pick colors for the thumb-tacks. Multiple Thumb-tacks can be put on a card/picture.
There'd probably be a trash can in the lower right-hand corner for you to "toss" cards and empty or restore cards if needed.
Possibly have strings to link cards? I'm not sure about this one, but when thinking about what I do with corkboards, strings come up...
I'm guessing save data would be stored in an SQLite db file or something... And exportable to XML or CSV (then other people can write interpreters if desired, or a web version could be added, then a back-up to web feature later? much much later...).
