I'VE LEARNED A LOT from reviewing content I keep inside Readwise. I occasionally share items from my Readwise as Twitter Fleets. Today I'm starting to review items I've highlighted that Readwise exported to me as a short summary. I think these are some of my Readwise Favorites. I'm trying to see whether these items also appear in content I swipe and review in the Readwise app.
A foundation element of the Open Community is to create and share. Media writers know the essential processes of this openness.
Editor's note: I got this snippet after highlighting a Word document called "Media Writing" on my Kindle.
Our notebook serves as a mental sanctuary where we are free to think, reflect, process, and focus.
At its core, creative confidence is about believing in your ability to create change in the world around you. It is the conviction that you can achieve what you set out to do. We think this self-assurance, this belief in your creative capacity, lies at the heart of innovation.
The future book — the digital book — is no longer an immutable brick. It's ethereal and networked, emerging publicly in fits in starts. An artifact ‘complete’ for only the briefest of moments. Shifting deliberately. Layered with our shared marginalia. And demanding engagement with the promise of community implicit in its form. The book of the past reveals its individual experience uniquely. The book of the future reveals our collective experience uniquely.
Reader's note: I highlighted this item because Kevin O'Rourke and I believe the future of publishing depends on long reads.
I'll update this blog post when I figure out where the email summaries originate. I'm specifically interested in learning if it's possible for me to trigger these sorts directly from Readwise into a draft blog post.
