I’m learning Obsidian, moving out of Apple Notes. I can’t get over this fundamental point:

In our age when cloud services can shut down, get bought, or change privacy policy any day, the last thing you want is proprietary format and data lock-in.

With Obsidian, your data sits in a local folder. Never leave your life’s work held hostage in the cloud again.

I had been wanting something like this for a long time, a simple way to use plain text files as notes. I’ll likely write a long blog post about Obsidian.
