Roaming through Thoughts

People have been raving about Roam lately. Roam is an outlining app like Workflowy, but it emphasize linking notes to each other. Something I love about it, which doesn’t seem to be mentioned much, is how Roam takes the user right to Daily Dotes. The idea is to start getting notes down right away, then organize as needed, once you’ve begun writing.

There’s something powerful about combining bullet points with easy linking. Writing in bullets tends to atomize thoughts. It encourages producing small chunks of thought, which can then be linked to each other and mixed with each other.
