Avatar for Gem

Dedicated space for meaningful content and conversations

Dedicated space for meaningful content and conversations

The product is an idea for how to solve the problem I laid out above, and it's one I'd love input on from whomever becomes my co-founder. Right now, it seems to me that a core issue of internet tech is that there's too much. Too much content, too many tools, too many people to connect with. And almost all of it is fleeting. If the existing internet tech landscape encourages distraction and shallowness, this product would encourage focus and depth. It's a dedicated space for just the content and conversations that matter. It's a place designed for deep thinking, critical thinking, open-mindedness, personal progress, and meaningful 1:1 conversations. It's a place where people can focus on making themselves and their most important relationships better. Unlike Pocket or Instapaper where you save any and every article you want, Gem is only for things that hold genuine and lasting meaning for you. Hence the name — it's a place for content and people you consider "gems."
