Millions of active websites are publishing billions of pages worth of content each day, but with such a piecemeal approach to content organization, people are often forced to spend more time than necessary gathering the materials they need to truly learn about the topics they’re researching. Gibbon has created a solution to this problem, encouraging its users to curate content to create simple paths of resources that others can learn from.
Let’s say you’re interested in launching a startup. You might begin by looking up articles about how to create a business plan, how to recruit employees, and how to gain traction for your business. Rather than aimlessly googling for the answers to these queries, you could visit Gibbon and check out the “playlists” that other users have curated. Users can add articles, links, videos, and books to their playlists, and they can share those playlists publicly with other users—like yourself—online.
The playlist topics you’re likely to find on Gibbon run the gamut including design, photography, privacy and business-related issues. Users who would like to expand the peer-to-peer learning platform’s knowledge base are encouraged to create playlists of their own. Organizations can also sign up to create private playlists, also known as “flows,” for a fee.
