What we are doing at Highlights
We are working on building the metadata layer of the internet. As a first step we have created an extension that helps you highlight, add notes and tags across the web. You can think of these things as the metadata added by the user to a particular URL(link). So when the user visits the same page next time say after couple of days, all this data will popup. Now you don't know remember anything. All the relevant data will be popped up for you contextually every time you visit a page.
Making your shares more meaningful
How many times have you seen a link shared by a friend on twitter but didn't click on it as you were not sure if it was worth your time? I am sure countless times. We are trying to solve this issue by making your twitter posts about a link more meaningful.
Here is what we are doing. You read an article. Just highlight the interesting parts of the article. Click on create twitter thread, our extension creates a twitter thread for you along with your highlights. You can do this in just couple of seconds.
