Last week, I stumbled upon a newcomer in the realm of note-taking: “Roam Research” (roamresearch.com).
I haven’t played with it a ton, but what I’ve discovered so far is that there are a number of similarities to tools like WorkFlowy (the bulleted lists, “zooming in”, etc.). Outside of that, they claim that linked docs/thoughts are where it’s at, and make it easy to do so (and claim that tools like Evernote and Notion are off the mark as far as how our brains work, both in capturing and returning to notes). The app also has a graph that reflects your current “network of thoughts”.
I’m probably a bit premature in posting on this, but I wanted to share with everyone here to see if anyone else has seen or is using this app, and what your thoughts are. I’m not sure yet if this is a tool I should take into consideration for notes and my “second brain”, or if I’m just deluding myself and distracted by the latest new and shiny tool.
