Building a Second Brain

We’re all about turning all of the incredible ideas in your head into organized insights that allow you to find clarity and joy in writing. 


How can software do that? It’s not simple, but it can be accomplished the way our brains work — by spotting patterns. 


One of the features we are hard at work building for Thunk is this concept of the Second Brain


This concept has most recently been crystallized by Tiago Forte in his course Building a Second Brain.


Tiago describes that building a second brain is a “methodology for saving and systematically reminding us of the ideas, inspirations, insights, and connections we’ve gained through our experience. It expands our memory and our intellect using the modern tools of technology and networks.” 


At Thunk, we wanted to take this idea of leveraging tools and networks and actually build one. 


This video shows where we are in the prototyping phase of beginning to map out your brain. 


We’d love to know if you would find this feature useful, and what you’d be looking to gain out of seeing your thoughts mirrored back to you this way.
