LindyLearn Feed Beta
Welcome, and what's next for lindylearn.io
You probably signed up for this newsletter after seeing the Timeless Blogs Search one month ago — so welcome! If not, also welcome!
A small reminder on the purpose of LindyLearn: Getting more learning and purpose out of our activities online, together. Social networks are amazing to discover new ideas and people, but it’s also easy to get distracted by that.
I believe a solution lies in using the Lindy Effect, accepting that new and more information isn’t always better. This can mean not consuming news yet being informed, connecting with people yet not losing control of your inbox, or not reading everything in your read-it-later list. Think about the memorable conversations you had with friends about classic books — why is there no place for this online?
And so, an update: I’m now working on LindyLearn Feed, a place for essays people you care about found useful. The goal is to be informed on topics and people without getting into the algorithmic feed. Right now it shows article recommendations and blog posts by the people you follow on Twitter.
I’m hoping to have it working for you all next week. A few screenshots:
That’s the first version of the LindyLearn Feed. For me, it’s a good foundation to engage with articles more thoughtfully, connect with people more personally, and build our collective library of knowledge.
The purpose of this newsletter is to figure it out together — evidently, I’m very interested in your feedback. What do you like and don’t like about the idea? If you want to try out the beta, please just reply to this email.
Until next time. Stay focused online.
If you’re not already subscribed to new yet informative posts, you can do that here.
“Feed” represents what we want to get away from, but I have not found a better alternative name for the LindyLearn Feed so far.
