Scholars need a place on the Internet where to collaborate, discuss complex ideas and connect with the public. We envision a renewed and rejuvenated academy — one that is publicly engaged, networked, and designed.
Folio provides an easy-to-use content management system, letting authors publish digitally native multimedia articles, peer-review and seek feedback from others, and conveniently track previous revisions of their work.
On Folio, content is organized across "libraries", which are curated by editors — users who self-start topic-based publications. The idea is that everybody can create content, however, stories will only gain exposure if they are previously reviewed and accepted by an editor.
Be curious. Read widely. Try new things. What people call intelligence just boils down to curiosity. — Aaron Swartz
