Since the internet came along, there's only been more information available to us.
But what we read online has for too long been influenced by engagement-based algorithms. And reading independently has limited how and what we learn from it.
Now that people are ready to take back their mind (and companies like Substack are putting people back in charge), we believe we have all the building blocks we need to build Hammock, a social reading app focused on learning.
Imagine that when reading, you could see the highlights, annotations, and marginalia of friends or other people you trust. Knowing what they consider to be good and relevant content helps you discover and jump onto it right away, as well as maximize your learning.
As avid learners and readers ourselves, we constantly discover new content and share it between us, but we also find it hard to find signal in the all that noise. Hammock is the experience we wanted for ourselves.
A place where people can read and learn from each other, while having control over what they put in their mind.
Does this resonate with you? We're hiring! 👋
