What would your mind look like if you could see it as a whiteboard or mood board? We imagine there would be a bunch of snippets or sticky notes with random mental notes you’ve collected.
That’s how you could describe My Mind, a new product from serial maker and designer, Tobias van Schneider. The tool lets you dump your notes (images, links, videos, quotes, PDFs, articles) in one visual space, and uses artificial intelligence to sort it all for you. No need for folders, labels, or organizational systems. To find something search for a word, color, or object that you remember.
Van Schneider started working on the product after becoming frustrated with note-taking tools that require time to manage, and then fall apart when we forget to tag things or encounter something that doesn’t fit into the categorization structure we initially created.
My Mind has an element of Pinterest — pin things from across the web or upload them to a board to save them for later — but the tool isn’t about discovery like Pinterest. Perhaps more importantly, it’s absolutely not a social tool.
“When everything we do is seen by others, we act differently. We start curating our identity, whether consciously or subconsciously,” explains the My Mind website.
My Mind is designed to be a private space, without any social features to inspire chasing vanity metrics, like comments or likes. Although, if you do want to share “a little piece of your mind” with a friend, you can use a share link that expires after 24 hours.
We just covered the launch of Personal AI which plays in a similar space — leveraging AI to do the manual work of organization and recall for you. Pair these with tools like Scribe AI, which automate note-taking in your meetings, and you have to wonder...
Will we be soon be saying RIP to note-taking soon too?
Dmitry Sagalovskiy was formerly an engineer at Google and got to work on Google Sheets. Today, Sagalovskiy and team launched Grist, a relational spreadsheet for organizing data in your ideal layout. You can go no-code or use Excel-like functions and even Python freely in formulas.
One early adopter writes: “...it’s the only viable Airtable competitor I’ve ever come across. If Airtable, Google Sheets, and Microsoft Access were to ever were to have a threesome - their prodigy child would be just like Grist.”
Pendo just doesn't talk about product-led growth, they live it as well. That’s why they released Pendo Free in November 2020; a free-forever version of Pendo that helps you better understand your users with analytics and engage with them using guides. In October 2021, they took another product-led step, opening Pendo Free to mobile apps. With this new release, you can understand all aspects of your user's cross-device journey as well as how they behave and interact with your mobile apps.
