Mem is the ⚡ fastest way to capture, connect, and recollect information. Mem is your second brain. On steroids 🚀 Now backed by a16z!
The Problem and The Pitch
Note-taking is great. But how do you refer back to information when you need it most? 🤔
How do you search for saved knowledge like meeting notes 🗒️, membership numbers 🛬, your friend's favorite restaurant 🥗, or that travel recommendation your work buddy 🧑💼 had made?
Mem is the ⚡ fastest way to capture, connect, and recollect information. Mem is your second brain. On steroids.
It is probably the front runner in the next generation 🔮 of personal productivity apps. It is one of the apps I'm most looking forward to in 2022! 🎉 It has the potential to be a key part of the productivity meta-layer.
Mem is like a superpower. The list of standout features is seemingly endless:
⚡ Blazing fast information capture across desktop and phone (now: WhatsApp; coming soon: mobile app). You rarely need to leave the app you're working in. You can take notes as you read an article or while on a Zoom call 💻
🌐 One-click information recall. Its "Mac-like" spotlight feature allows you to resurface information while using any app. Super helpful in meetings, recollecting reference numbers, and newsletter takeaways!
🗃️ No need to organize notes. It is as simple as Apple Notes/Evernote, but you DON'T need to put notes in folders. They magically link to each other and provide additional context
😌 Extremely low learning curve (a massive boon as compared to tools like Roam Research)
📬 Ever growing list of integrations → you can forward any mail or upload any doc to Mem and Mem remembers it for you. Bonus: you can search anything you've uploaded via natural language
What's more? They have a 🤯 mind-blowing pace of development. So much so that Mem is now a core part of Lenny Rachitsky's note-taking process (even though they're in early beta)
🔭 Roam Research: The pioneer of the connected notes era. Slightly higher learning curve
🧑🎓 Remnote: Unlimited free plan & flashcards feature targeted towards students
📣 Synth: If you are someone who consumes a lot of audio information (meetings, interviews, videos, lectures, etc.) and wants to take notes from it for easy reference later (want to build your second brain)
