Hey friends! We're very pumped to announce this. In case you don't know what Hardbound is, we're a new way to tell stories that's designed for phones. Our testflight beta is completely full, but you can read one of our stories on the web here: https://www.hardbound.co/read/em... If you want to experiment telling stories in this format, we've got just the thing for you! We'd be honored if you wanted to apply :)

@nbashaw Very cool. Love the stories in beta. I struggle to hit publish on my posts from the Drafts section in Medium, but would love to try this.

@nbashaw This is great Nathan! Succinct explanation, love the comix / graphic flow feel of it. It actually seems like potentially a cool way to produce educational materials, too :D

@nbashaw I have a newsletter I do that might be a good fit for this, over at http://tedium.co. Look forward to digging in.

Reading / education are often considered to be a positive activity that requires either willpower or good habits. Conversely, "entertainment" is a negative activity that should be done in moderation. Personally, I've always felt there was a huge opportunity to blur those lines. I've really enjoy Hardbound and look forward to reading more of the stories on there.

@nbashaw - Love that quote.it always bothered me that history is often boring to learn about. The definition of history is basically something that was once important and fascinating to humans. There could be a big opportunity there.

I've really enjoyed all of the stories I've read on Hardbound, it's almost like reading a children's book for adults. There are short, quick bits of text alongside great visuals, which makes reading far more enjoyable than I would have thought possible on a phone. Great work as always @nbashaw!
