This is a one-hour interview, discussion, demonstration, and debate between Conor White-Sullivan, founder of “note-taking tool for networked thought” Roam, and myself. We’ve exchanged many messages on Twitter and other platforms about our differing approaches to knowledge management and note-taking. In this in-depth conversation, we talk about Conor’s background and what led him to dedicate himself to created Roam, the principles and insights that underlie the product’s design, and his opinions on privacy, security, networks, connecting ideas, and many other topics.
