Roam Research is a note taking and knowledge development application. Roam uses bi-directional links to connect and reveal relationships between your notes. Its flexibility and list of innovative features mean that it has many other uses within the personal productivity ecosystem as well, on its own or in combination with other apps. These other uses include goal and project management, task management, information management and writing.
Roam’s power comes from its ability to connect and organize your notes and information, act as a central repository for your information and knowledge which can then be utilized in many different areas.

How to grock Roam
The most effective way to grock @RoamResearch when you first begin to learn the software is to drill into your head two concepts:
1. Each block (bullet) is a "NOTE" in of itself
2. Each block you indent, automatically inherits ALL page references above ithttps://t.co/oHQTJQl9HS

ROAMJS NOTIFICATION DASHBOARD
Ever wanted a notifications dashboard in Roam?
We just added "Edited by" and "is referenced by" conditions to Query Builder which now make this possible!
Use queries to get a serial view of all the blocks your colleagues have engaged with ? pic.twitter.com/8kHmIPt4e4

TRACKING CREDENCE FOR CLAIMS USING THE SLIDER
I use the @RoamResearch slider to track credence for claims.
But I wonder if it would also be useful to create tags for cognitive attitudes: I believe, I doubt, I wonder, I predict, etc.
Using natural language for these tags seems better for sense-making. pic.twitter.com/FXpaAHGVws
