Are.na is a simple tool for connecting what you find and building knowledge. It’s a space where you can save anything, structure your thinking however you want, and discover new things together.
Channels are collections of content that can hold images, websites, text, videos, and files. Connect anything you want to a channel by dragging a file from your desktop, copying and pasting, or by using our bookmarklet.
Are.na is a community of people thinking together. Explore the entire Are.na universe, collaborate on shared channels, or work privately to organize your own thoughts.
Our intention behind Are.na is to build a platform that helps people continually recontextualize information into new ideas and help us all understand the vast amount information we face on a daily basis.
As a society, we should think about what mainstream tools we have for unpacking our own perspectives. Is “sharing” enough? “Likes”? What happens to the things you shared last year? And how can the tools we build today help you understand how your thinking has changed over time?
The Are.na team offers development and API consulting for professional applications.
We value transparency and we aim at being self-sustainable. We will never sell data without explicit authorization from the user. We will never display ads or join an ad network.
We partly rely on our Premium users who have access to a series of extra features for a yearly subscription.
Questions? We’d love to hear from you.
