I think one of the most groundbreaking, innovative features of Roam and Obsidian are unreferenced links. For those who don't know how they work: in the above apps, instead of just getting a list with the backlinks under each block, you also get a list with "Unreferenced links" which display occurrences of the present block that have not been linked. You then get an option to automatically link these occurrences to the block via backlinks.
Why is this useful? Because this way you don't miss important bits of information that you have already written but might have forgotten having done so. This opens a whole new world of insights and possibilities.
