Knowledge, Learning, Community

This application takes a bit to try out (my initial test here), but I love the concept and hope I can advance further. Here's the idea: "Foam is a personal knowledge management and sharing system inspired by Roam Research, built on Visual Studio Code and GitHub. You can use Foam for organising your research, keeping re-discoverable notes, writing long-form content and, optionally, publishing it to the web." What I like about basing it in GitHub and VSCode is that any number of plug-ins can be applied to the content, creating the potential for a powerful personal knowledge management system - or dare I say, a personal learning environment.
