More than once, I've had a conversation over email and later realized that the information contained in the messages would make a great starting point for a document. So I built an experimental feature for Gmail Labs that does just that: with one simple click, 'Create a document' converts an email into a Google Docs document.
No more copying and pasting the text from your email -- just open the message you wish to convert, click the 'Create a document' link on the right side of the page, and voila, you have a brand new document which you can then modify and share!"
