Humans think all the time. And about 99% (this is pure speculation, but would be interesting to find out if this measurable) of our thoughts are lost. While some thoughts are worth losing sometimes some really cool and valuable ones get lost as well. I think we can do better. In a few years we might be having technology that can tap into our brains and extract our thoughts but until that we need an alternative. Why? Thoughts are the origin of most if not all human inventions. By crafting and combining thoughts we generate new ideas which lead to new innovations. With the internet we've gained instant access to millions of other people and their thoughts. A few of those thoughts are already captured. But they are scattered across the internet and most of them are probably not of high value. Imagine if we could bring high value thoughts together in one place and connect them in a way that let's us generate new ideas based on thoughts of the entire human race. Of course this is moon shot thinking. But I think worth considering. And that's what the long term goal of Shimatta is about.
