With tools for thought, I spent years wandering from one use case to another, from one feature to another.
Wandering between three kinda-the-same-but-not-quite similar projects.
Then I realized that apart from Roam and Airtable, I actually do use a single feature of my own writing (yes, I do have working prototypes but too shy to show them just yet, sorry ;))
And that feature is the speed—the freedom to take quick, small notes anytime, anywhere.
Because it’s super convenient, super-fast, and does not get in the way.
So, the pitch! Swift Organizer. For your every idea, article, or book you read.
- If you have hundreds of notes, go with the paper, indeed.
- Compounding results from your second brain start with thousands. Behind every serious publication, there’s a mountain of drafts.
- Every tool starts lagging with thousands of notes. Evernote, Roam, Notion, you name it. Isn’t it insane for a productivity tool to make you wait? The only reason people tolerate it is because there’s no alternative.
- Speed gives us an excellent development priority, clear from the “feature creep” swamp.
- When you write, procrastination disappears when it’s so easy to jot something without blinking an eye. And to get back to that years-old idea in under a second.
- UI and features can be copied, but “properties” (fast, reliable, on-premise, offline, secure) both show the app’s value, and much harder for the competitors to achieve; the larger the competitor, the better.
- And to cover tons of niche use cases, we can hire more people and build an add-on store, like Airtable does right now.
