I love taking notes and I’ve been using all kinds of systems including Roam Research (which I use the most), Obsidian, Evernote, among others. I’m combining the ideas from Zettelkasten (with influence from Andy Matuschak on Evergreen Notes), progressive summarization and others to a rough system that works for me.
I stumbled upon Logseq recently (which is very heavily influenced by Roam Research) and have started testing it out.

- Daily Notes
- Right Sidebar
- Graph View
- Block Referencing & Embeds

- Privacy focused (notes are stored locally in markdown format)
- Flash Cards
- Space Repetition
- PDF Highlighter
- Logseq is free
I’ve noticed quite a lot of Roam Research users heading over to Logseq mainly because of security and the fact that it’s free.
