What is Glasp?

Glasp is a social web highlighter that allows you to collect what you resonate with from the web, connect with like-minded people based on your interest, and leave your learnings for future generations. Leave your digital legacy for humanity, while working for yourself 📚✨

Why are we building Glasp?

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.

For further information, here's the story behind this project:

What problem are we trying to solve?

The problem we are addressing is the isolation of knowledge. If you leave your knowledge, insights, experiences only in personal spaces (e.g. note-taking apps), no one can access them after you die. You might be able to publish your notes just before you die but no one knows when it is. Since collective learning is how humans got smarter across generations, it would be a huge loss for all if we can't access what you have learned throughout your life.

What is our solution in one sentence or longer?

A social web highlighter that people can highlight & organize quotes and thoughts from the web and access other like-minded people's learning at the same time. (like a Kindle highlighter for the web with social aspects.)

As a solution, we provide a social web highlighter that people can highlight and collect what they resonate with while reading on the web. We make it accessible for other people so that we all can learn from each other! We will also visualize how your knowledge was passed on to other people, so you'll see how you contribute to human knowledge history.
