tl;dr - One of the ways I use Mindpalace is to keep track of the articles that my friends send me. I make highlights and notes in the app so I can have great conversations with my friends about the things we both care about.

I was recently on vacation with a friend of mine who works for a big data company in the health care sector in Silicon Valley. I used to work in health care before starting Mindpalace, so I am always curious about the latest developments in the space.

After the trip, my friend sent me an article about the former CMO of his company that he said had interesting insights on the use of real-world databases in health care. Check it out for yourself: Here's why Abernethy wanted to jump on board at Verily and her ambitions to grow its research business.

I shared it to my Mindpalace (How to save to Mindpalace?) from my phone and added a note reminding myself who sent me the article so I would have context for later. Before Mindpalace, I would always end up with random screenshots on my phone of things I wanted to remember, but never any context about *why* I saved it.

A few days later I had a bit of down time while commuting on the train so I went back to the article and added some highlights on the key things I wanted to take away. Next time my friend and I talk we should be able to have a really interesting conversation about this.

I love connecting with friends on topics we both care about. When someone takes the time to send you an article they find interesting, there's no worse feeling than forgetting about it when they ask a follow up question the next week. My friends send me articles all the time and I think it's important to dig into them. I use my Mindpalace to help keep track of all the insights that come from these articles as well as ones I find myself.

Helping people have more interesting conversations and forge better connections with their friends is just one of the many reasons we started Mindpalace.
