II.4. Workflow 1: Notetaking for networked thought

Key points

✅ This is Zettelkasten light. As Roam founder Conor White-Sullivan tweeted, "many very capable people never feel the need to go beyond" pages, references, and indenting.

✅ Roam's greatest superpower is taking this kind of chaotic input and helping you make sense of it.

✅ Blocks, Page References, and Indenting are the front end of the notetaking workflow.

✅ Linked (and Unlinked) References on Pages allow you to examine connections over time and track ideas.

✅ The Right Sidebar and Focus on Block provide you a useful flow for further developing and refining your notes.
