Have you ever wondered why the Internet is organized around pages?
The web is the most powerful communication technology ever invented, but if you want to find something, you have to navigate between one whole page and another. Then you have to search on that page, for what you are looking for....if it's there at all.
Why doesn't the internet work more like the human brain? Is the question, Bridgit founder Daveed Benjamin asked himself? The human mind works by linking ideas to ideas, not like an old telephone exchange, where one page is plugged into another one. Bridgit was born from the desire to create synaptic connections between ideas online. To make bridges between concepts that actually express something about those ideas, rather than mechanically connecting entire internet pages and hoping that you can find the idea you are looking for there.
Building bridges builds a decentralized knowledge base that is hundreds of times more powerful than the current internet allows. It can be accessed and understood by anyone following the bridges and naturally follows our attention, rather than interrupting it with intrusive advertising, or irrelevant content.
The time of the Internet of Pages is over. Say hello, to the Internet of Ideas.
