My Vision: A Forgotten HistoryLearn More
We used to put paper notes on the table to help us think. Meta brings this experience to your computer.

I am fascinated by note-taking, especially in Notion. However, I realize that in order to organize my thought process, I have to jot it down onto paper and indicate the location of the relevant content. When I try Meta out, I am blown away because this is precisely what I need and also what Notion is lacking. I've been using Meta to prep for my case interview and it's the best tool out there to do this in my opinion.
Right in the browser, reusable notes, quick and smooth maping... the only other similars I've seen didn't use notes the way Meta does. Even in this early stage it's already useful. I bet that if Meta reaches its potential, it could one day be sparking its copycats too - since no one has been seriously exploring the whiteboard / mindmaping as a notetaking framework. Not really.
I am super interested in Meta considering the mind-mapping + notetaking framework. I read that Alan hopes to approach knowledge in a complex systems way. I'm personally in love with complex systems and network science so I think this is the path toward the answer I've been looking for.
Meta has filled a pretty big gap with my stories, planning, that I really haven't seen any other apps fill quite as well for how I'd use it. Throwing a quick overview of current stories into the prototype gave me enough relief at being able to see their flow that I actually sighed after zooming out a little. I'd happily pay for an app that helps me fill gaps in how I work like this.
