When Benjamin Franklin founded the first subscription library in America, he had a vision for democratizing knowledge by making “the common tradesman and farmers as intelligent as most gentlemen from other countries.” Access to knowledge, he believed, was the key to creativity, innovation, and success in life.
Today, the web is our library, with information more readily available than ever before. But finding the most interesting, most relevant, most meaningful information and synthesizing it into knowledge and insight is an increasingly challenging task, yet one of growing urgency and importance.
Explore embodies Lore’s aspiration to reshape education in the Information Age and aims to distill the wealth of information available to us today – online and off – into a portal of discovery for meaningful knowledge, powered by cross-disciplinary curiosity.
From TED talks to vintage maps to psychology studies to quotes from favorite books, and just about everything in between, Explore will guide you through the landscape of the mind as we explore the evolving architecture of knowledge together.
Enjoy and explore.
