Iโ€™ve become a big fan of a feature offered by @readwiseio, which sends me a daily email with five quotes algorithmically curated from my entire history of e-book reading. (Plus a bonus quote from a book I haven't read yet.) adjacentpossible.substack.coโ€ฆ

Weโ€™ve noticed a HUGE uptick in requests to integrate with various library ereading apps. Apparently, the pandemic catalyzed a shift towards ebooks among library patrons. Weโ€™re here for it! newyorker.com/news/annals-ofโ€ฆ

Much of our work on Readwise was inspired by the inimitable @stevenbjohnson From his work on Findings a decade ago to the concept of facilitating "slow hunches" through repeated exposure to nascent ideas Accordingly, we're excited for this upcoming e-course!
Quick informal Twitter survey for this e-course I'm teaching on Weds (signup info below.) What tools--digital/analog--do you use for capturing your ideas? What do you use for capturing interesting things you've read/heard? Are they the same tools for both? myfivethings.com/class/steveโ€ฆ
