AbridgeMe was founded with a disruptive spirit and a lofty objective: to create the world's first crowdsourced reference platform that delivers concise (100 words or less), fact-based, summaries of the world around us.The idea was hatched as a way for even the busiest and most distracted individuals to get an understanding on any topic.
Knowing that it would be virtually impossible to summarize every important topic in the world alone (given the time constraints of life and general lack of knowledge on most topics), the AbridgeMe crowdsourced platform was designed to allow any subject matter expert, professional writer, amateur blogger, professor, etc. to contribute and help grow the ever-evolving content base.
The online reference information space is dominated by a few large players that have built deep content bases of information over the last 10 or so years. By creating a new medium to explain any topic in 100 words or less, AbridgeMe is able to deliver to the world purely concise summaries for anyone with an internet connection to consume.
In it's simplest terms, AbridgeMe is a cleaner, "Cliffs Notes" version of Wikipedia.
