Second workflowy. There are other zoomable nested lists (e.g., dynalist), but they're too slow. Workflowy forces minimalism, which ensures your data is portable and that the handling of it is fast.

Adding colored tags[2] and the Workflowy Code Formatter extension[1] makes it really great.

I was a heavy Workflowy user for my own personal notes for a few years, and then I switched to Dynalist after a colleague recommended it to me. It can do a lot of things that Workflowy can't (or at least it could when I switched a couple years ago) such as format LaTex code. I rely heavily on this software for organizing my thoughts in both work and my personal life, and I use it daily.

I've tried using these tools in a work environment but my colleagues have never really loved it, so it's more of a personal tool. We just use Google Docs in my current work environment.
