Profound personal, organizational and societal achievements are based on knowledge. Failure to live up to one’s potential is often based on failure to apply readily available knowledge. In other words, one knew better or should have known better.
Some people value knowledge more than others. For instance, there are heads of state who, while personally enjoying the benefits of science, enact policies based on patently false beliefs; some of them disseminate information known to be false. Knowledge is plentiful. Yet it can be difficult to understand and apply.
We develop products for people who wish to act in accordance with knowledge. Our Mac product is inspired by two books written by one of our co-founders, Luc P. Beaudoin. The books describe the challenges we face in using knowledge, important properties of the human mind, and ways to overcome those challenges.
Bending the Universe with the Mind in mind
We’ve identified several important problems people have that can be solved by extending and applying cognitive science.
We develop simple, beautiful products inspired by the modern science of the human mind.
Sleep is essential to cognitive productivity. Our first app, mySleepButton®, aims to help you fall asleep (or get back to sleep). It illustrates the concept of CogSci Apps.
Our second app, Hookmark, is designed to help you stay in flow as you work on your Mac. It enables you to avoid searching and to rapidly re-access information that is pertinent to your current task.
Luc P. Beaudoin (Ph.D. Cognitive Science). He is author of Cognitive Productivity: The Art and Science of Using Knowledge to Become Profoundly Effective;and of Cognitive Productivity with macOS®: 7 Principles for Getting Smarter with Knowledge.
Brian Shi, Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Brian has been leading cognitive-productivity software development implementation and teams for over 10 years.
We are fortunate to live in an era in which there is so much high-caliber, useful knowledge, and to be in a position to help people apply knowledge.
