Oof, oof, oof. Strong agree on this being a bad fit for VC funding.

It seems like if they're trying to get into the corporate wiki space (which is the only place I can imagine there being VC-money-type return), that's going to necessitate different focus on features from what makes sense for the personal brain-backup user.

I've enjoyed the new blood Roam has brought into the personal knowledgebase community, and it's even indirectly responsible for getting me back into Tiddlywiki after years of absence--but this can only skew people's expectations about what notetaking can be.
