about us

Our Mission

to facilitate information’s unending quest for freedom

We seek to liberate knowledge by widening the scope of scientific, medical, economic, and political information available to the broader public.  While traditional academic journals are a great way for thought leaders to share ideas and insights amongst each other, there exists a hunger for knowledge outside of the ivory towers. All of the site’s resources are free and available to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

to distill ideas down to the crux

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein

We measure our success by how many people we are able to transmit ideas to. And to this end, we believe that even the most arcane topics can be distilled down to a form that can be understood by a larger audience.

to provide analysis and ideas uninhibited by commercial, political or editorial constraint

Too often, we see traditional media outlets reporting on academic research with bias, exaggeration, or sensationalism. We believe that this is a gross disservice both to the researcher and the audience.
