Networked Notes

Chris Murphy · 27 January, 2021

This is a playlist for learning about networked notes, webs of thought and second brains. If you'd like to get started with second brain tools like Roam, Obsidian and TiddlyWiki, then this is the playlist for you.

Thank you to Jordan Moore and Adam Procter for setting me off down this rabbit hole. Find out more about how playlists work, here.
