I'm a software developer who's obsessed with filter bubbles and their impact on modern society.

Hence this project and its goal to weave wisdom from the world's books into peoples' everyday lives to inspire, enlighten, and educate.

I'm tired of social and commercial algorithms shoving products in my face. I'm tired of living in the filter bubble created by these algorithms. I'm tired of the increasingly polarized society we live in that refuses to acknowledge other peoples' ideas without first labeling and judging the people who put them forward.

I want to help broaden peoples' minds. I want to spark their curiosity. I want them to remember that we stand on the shoulders of greats, and that many of today's problems have been solved in the past. I want to inspire more kids to read.

That's why I've made this project a public service. That's why there's no way to pick categories or follow your friends. That's why you won't ever see any ads or affiliate BUY LINKS IN YOUR FACE. Ever. Just quality, hand-picked ideas...some you'll love, some you'll hate, and some you won't be sure how to react to at first.

So try it!

Huge thanks to my backers. You're all the best.
Goals

This goal is to hire help to add new books every day + contact experts across fields to further broaden ideas represented.

Adding new book snippets is hard work! We don't get them programatically, because most 'book quotes' lack context. So each snippet is found by a human and entered manually.

It's slower but makes the experience much more rewarding.
