How do you digitize a research notebook?

How do you digitize your research notebook? I've got a small notebook that I carry around with me with about 2 years' worth of notes, ideas, references for papers or books, and scribbles from various meetings, conversations, etc. I had a heart attack moment today when I thought I'd lost it. What's the best way to organize all this stuff digitally? I'm on a Mac, if it makes a difference, but general advice is appreciated.
One giant plain text document? Scan it? One Excel sheet for ideas, another for references? References go in EndNote, ideas go in the calendar for follow-up? Should I be doing this more often?
