A notes tool for networked thought

Roam is a note taking and knowledge management tool built on a graph database that helps users organize related thoughts without having to worry about what file and folder the thought needs to go into. We've been called everything from"the Superhuman of Notes" to a "Magic Junkyard for connecting your ideas." Roam is used by writers, researchers, investors, engineers, designers, marketers, students, teachers, founders and product managers - to organize their thoughts, tasks, conspiracy theories and shopping lists. The best way to get a sense of the tool is to search for #roamcult on twitter and see what our users are saying, or play with it yourself.
