🕰️ Story behind Glasp
10 years ago, I was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma that suddenly paralyzed the left side of my body, and my doctor told me that I could go into cardiopulmonary arrest at any moment. I managed to survive through emergency surgery, but when I was confronted with the reality that I might disappear from this world, I remember feeling an inexpressible sense of fear and frustration welling up from the bottom of my body.
At the same time, I was struck by the desire to prove that I existed in this world and that my life had meaning, and the urge to leave something useful behind for the world while I was still alive to feel a sense of contribution to humanity.
📚What is Glasp?
Glasp is a social web highlighter that people can use to highlight and organize quotes and thoughts from the web without having to switch back and forth between screens, and access other like-minded people’s learning at the same time.
Our mission is to democratize access to other people’s learning and experiences that they have collected throughout their lives as a utilitarian legacy. As Glasp stands for "Greatest Legacy Accumulated as Shared Proof", we want to visualize your contribution to human knowledge history.
Besides the YouTube highlight, you can do:
✅ Sync all your highlights and notes from Kindle eBooks: 📚
✅ Highlight text on the web: 🔴 🟡 🟢 🔵
✅ Highlight & annotate PDF files hosted on the web ✍️
✅ Discover more useful content from other curators: 🤝
... and many more!
We’re excited for the Product Hunt community to check it out and would love to get any feedback to improve Glasp!
🧭 What's Coming Up Next:
- iOS & Android app (coming soon)
