Everything is interconnected.
Human brains work non-linearly, as we shift from an idea to another. However, in most note-taking software, your data is organized in a hierarchy. In Logseq, each note has connections to others, but none of them dwell within another note or notebook.
All-in-one workspace for your thinking and learning.
Many tools make the mistake of focusing on just one aspect of the learning, thinking, and collaborating triad. This could help them narrow down their product focus, but lose the whole sense of the core -- everything “is” interconnected. This is what Logseq is trying to fix.
