Here are some resources he recommended to me:
Modern outliners like Roam and logseq need a common interchange format. OPML seems like the natural choice? For instance, Workflowy has supported OPML since 2013.
Outliners, wikis, etc. have rich histories. It seems like one of the major contributions of modern “tools for thought” is to combine these concepts in interesting ways.
My blog takes 32 seconds to build on my M1 mac, assuming cached dependencies (and most of that time is doing a Roam export). The Netlify build is over 2 minutes. I wish it were more like 10 seconds total.
The local build would be < 10 seconds if I had direct access to an OPML or JSON feed. Maybe it’s time to reconsider Roam as a blog CMS.
