@SamGreenwood I abandoned Roam for the similar, but more mature, Notion. notion.so - it still has the flaw that it's running on their servers, and it's missing the really cool backlinking of Roam, but it seems to fit my needs better.

There really needs to be a self hosted open-source version of these post-wiki productivity tools.

I love voting! It makes you feel like you have a say.

I fucked up. It’s a long story but we were testing a new re-direct with a company called Barometric. The pi-hole, NextDNS, uBlock Origin (and I’m guessing most other ad-blocking filters) see the redirect as connecting to an ad server - which it’s not, it’s for ratings not tracking - and block the download.

We’re working on changing the redirect now. You might get a second copy of TWiT, but the downloads should work from now on.

I apologize.

@Bananafanafofana I like the Cornell system medium.goodnotes.com/study-wit - also if you checkout the Productivity subreddit you'll find lots of inspiration and ideas. reddit.com/r/productivity/

I use Notion.so for notetaking, but if you're taking notes at lectures, Notability on the iPad is excellent.

@Dittrich Great question. I don't have any pull at Keybase, but there is a Keybasefriends chat channel. You could request it there!

@camjc well that sucks. We didn’t do scientific testing but we did buy and continue to use three molecules and are very happy with the results.

digged "An app can be a home-cooked meal" by Robin Sloan:

'But let’s substitute a different phrase: “learn to cook.” People don’t only learn to cook so they can become chefs. Some do! But far more people learn to cook so they can eat better, or more affordably, or in a specific way... The list of reasons to “learn to cook” overflows, and only a handful have anything to do with the marketplace.'


@craigmaloney Roam does have an export to JSON or Markdown, but I also worry about being dependent on a single vendor. The software is stellar, however.

@craigmaloney I recently set up Dokuwiki on my Synology NAS, but I've had numerous wikis over the years, both public and personal. I love the idea - Roam has all the benefits of wiki, plus.

@craigmaloney it's like wiki on steroids. This article will help clarify the difference: nateliason.com/blog/roam

OMG. Have you tried note taking with Roam, yet? 🤯 roamresearch.com/ - if only it were open source and something I could run on my own server. Nevertheless, awesome.
