I interviewed the founders of ReadwiseTristan Homsi and Daniel Doyon, for the October Praxis Town Hall last week.

Readwise is a service that’s popular with Praxis readers, allowing you to get more out of what you read by emailing you excerpts you’ve highlighted on Kindle, iBooks, Instapaper, and Highly. By reminding you periodically about the best ideas you’ve encountered in the past, it promotes retention, helps you apply them, and sparks unexpected connections.

It was a fantastic conversation, ranging from how their service works and what needs it addresses, to our own personal reading and highlighting strategies, to how it fits into the broader story of personal knowledge management.

If you want to try it out, sign up for a subscription on their website and reply to the purchase confirmation email saying you’re a Praxis reader. They’ll give you an extra 30 days free on top of the 30-day free trial.
