July 19, 2023 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Join Ben Springwater, Co-Founder and CEO of the Matter reading app, to discuss novelty bias in our social media feeds, showing us what’s new, not what’s best, and why they built ReadSomethingWonderful to be a portal to timeless internet writing. A members-only fireside chat, moderated by Nicky Buttigieg.

“Most of the best writing was not created in the past year. Yet our feeds are dominated by the past 24 hours, in what David Perell calls the “The Never-Ending Now“. ReadSomethingWonderful is a counterweight to that, an access point to writing that stands the test of time.” – Matter on Twitter

Ben Springwater, Co-Founder and CEO of the reading app Matter, joins us for an exclusive online members-only fireside chat to discuss how we can prioritize good writing that has stood the test of time, instead of novel content that is fed to us as part of the endless cycle of ephemeral social media content. The team behind the Matter reading app have built ReadSomethingWonderful, a curated online portal to timeless internet writing, intended as a counterweight to the Never-Ending Now.

This is a members only event. Please sign in to RSVP.
