  1. Welcome to the future of work. Build anything. Use it for everything. Kill your SaaS subscriptions.

    Is Roam Research "over"? about 21 days ago:

    And finally, if you want your mind blown with possibilities, sign up for the Tana waitlist. It's still in invite-only alpha so it's rough around the edges but it's truly insane what they're building over there.
  2. Flexible notes and tasks, built by productivity enthusiasts.

    Newbie here. Want to build a second brain but I'm confused.... about 5 months ago

    Keep it simple, don't think too much, make your own second brain and improve it overtime. I personally use Amplenote , tried Notion but failed many times, it just requires too much energy to architect everything and the app is not mobile friendly as of today.
  3. A second brain, for you, forever. Obsidian is a powerful knowledge base that works on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.

    They don't really mention much in the way of tooling. Personally I like Obsidian for this, but Roam is a more expensive and feature rich option as well.
  5. Logseq is a local-first, non-linear, outliner notebook for organizing and sharing your personal knowledge base.

    I haven't experienced any issues with Joplin, but I also use Logseq + Syncthing.
