Throwing away the rules of citation and verification isn’t the answer.

I believe we just need to be much better at making it easier to publish various types of contents/knowledge with appropriate media.

I hope to contribute to the way people publish and share the knowledge. It’s fascinating to use and watch people (including myself) use various services and tools – I really believe it’s part of a process of making things better.
