Many people have been doing this sort of thing with encfs, truecrypt rsync, etc.
Personally while I am familiar with this sort of thing, I find it
extremely unpractical. Setting up mount points manually or adding
commands to scripts is tedious and things easily get spread out all
over the place.
My zim notebooks (yes, I've been flirting with other note taking
applications :) ) are stored on dropbox unencrypted, but I only keep
technical documentation in there. Personal information goes on my
tomboy notes, but there's no way I'm simply uploading that to dropbox.
There's no easy ready to use online storage service with built in
encryption unfortunately, and I think the comunity needs it badly,
it's probably the most discussed topic concerning tomboy. Perhaps a
good business niche? I for one would pay for such service.
