Well, it's just me, Julian, a 20-year-old designer and developer from Argentina. I started programming not too long ago, and it instantly became a daily habit of mine. The potential computers have (by following our orders) is limitless. I had confidence in my (basic) frontend abilities, but I feared the backend, and so I endeavored into Django (a **great** web framework). I wanted to do something of value whilst learning it. And so... !(https://musicart.xboxlive.com/6/cfbafbd6-0000-0000-0000-000000000009/504/image.jpg?w=1920&h=1080) I've always asked myself: "What's the best place to write into?" After trying **so** many apps, I'd always return to paper. ### Paper is **great**. - You write slower, and so the writing is more intentional. - It's harder to undo what you've written, and so every word means more. - You can't embed images and videos and whatever, it's just writing. No distractions. - You can't have _the_ perfect organization and complex nesting, so you waste less time in pointless structuring and strict order. - You can't have a broad view of all your notes, and so notes aren't hidden by a title (always on display). - You don't have your notes in the cloud, but you know they'll always be where you left them. - You need to flip the pages to navigate, but this way you also actually see the content as you go through. ### But, computers are also great. - You can find notes faster. - You don't run out of paper and don't have to divide all your notes into many notebooks. - You can write and access your notes from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. - You can copy, paste and share. ### And so, this is my attempt to get the best of both worlds. Owlscroll is simply a blank scroll where you just write. To navigate through your entries, you simply scroll. I wanted no thought to be hidden by its title. Navigating through entries is about actually seeing the content — not about seeing titles and only _then_ entering. From the moment you enter your scroll, you are immediately immersed in your words. It has minimal filters — tags and date — for those cases in which you want to narrow your exploration, without making you lose time having to nest and organize, without putting barriers of entry into your thoughts. It has a beautiful index, where you can find all your entries listed. It's meant to guard thoughts long term. It's a place both to put down your thoughts and to revise them — to access them and see how they've evolved over time. It's meant to be an ongoing piece of wisdom, spanning years, decades and lifetimes. It's beautiful. I can't wait for you to start using it.
