I would much rather use one memory card, and when possible back it up to my Netbook when I travel. When using multiple cards you risk the chance of losing or damaging them. Pay a little more for a quality card and you won't regret it.
Sometimes it's not practical to bring along a computer. For instance, I never take it while backpacking, dayhiking, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. When traveling internationally, I may or may not take my laptop. Depends on what I'm doing and where I'm going.
I'm not saying get a bunch of small cards. Get something that will give you a decent number of photos on a card and balance performance, price, and size. Two 8GB cards will have higher performance and will usually be cheaper than one 16GB card of the same make/model.
