Hello Reader!

Innovations in the tools for thought space have been dizzying this month!

In early 2020 I climbed aboard the Roam Research train to teach digital journaling. I still use Roam as an outlining tool and for making sense of what I read.

ā€‹In a recent tweet, Tiago Forte shared his perspective on the TfT "buzz cycle."ā€‹

What do you think of Tiago's assessment? Hit reply and let me know!

Let's get to our round-up of TfT round-ups!



First, if you're looking for a Tana invite, I don't have any, at least not yet. Do hang in there. Your time is coming.

Second, I'm delighted to see @CortexFutura back in the video tutorial business.

ā€‹Lukas' interstitial journaling workflow in Tana is quite helpful.


ā€‹Lisa Marie Cabrelli wrote a novel in Roam!
Congratulations, Lisa!

My wonderful friend Andy Henson continues to challenge our thinking about Roam and TfT structures.

Up & Comer of the Month

Innovator Ev Chapman is my up-and-comer for October.

Ev built -- and masterfully explains -- her well-being dashboard. Essentially, she's making a custom automation for what to do when she feels x, y, or z.

From the Mail Bag

John Buckley recently shared his desired outcomes from working in the digital thinking tools space.

[I want] to mine more value, reveal more profound insights, and have a better relationship with my thinking.

I'd love to hear from you, too!
