A few days ago I stumbled upon roamresearch.com and now I’m deep down the rabbit hole and I think I have finally found a notes taking app to rule them all.
I am going to use it for GTD and to take notes for all books that I read. I’m also using it for taking short notes about what I do each day, but more intimate thought still goes into my encrypted Standard Notes app.
There are some nice videos on Youtube on how to use Roam for notes taking.
Here is a good interview with the founder that should give you an idea about what it is all about: https://youtu.be/YcNW-eidDJk
Here is a good post for an overview, if you don’t want to watch a video right now: https://www.nateliason.com/blog/roam
Here is a guide for GTD in Roam: https://roamresearch.com/#/v8/help/page/AImpYBcPs
I will now read all my books on my iPad Pro on split screen mode, I will have the book on the left, 80% of the screen, and my browser with Roam on the right, 20% of the screen. I can then underline stuff in my Kindle, as usual, and immediately copy the really really good quotes into my [[Book Title]] page in Roam, and add a few tags, if needed. Over time, this will build up an incredible knowledge graph.
