Did you know this about popular note-taker Obsidian?
Obsidian has become one of the most well-known research and advanced note-taker on the market and it actually is the version 2 experience.
For those who don’t know, Obsidian is owned by Shida Li and Erica Xu (pictured below):

Yes, Dynalist was created by Obsidian and they work on both of the experiences in tandem. Dynalist focuses on outline and Obsidian more on connected notes.
A little fun fact you’d never have expected!
🧑🏻💻 Fact: They Only Have 3 People Working on Obsidian
