ALGORITHMING THE SMALL WORLD MYTH
Our mantra “Compass.to the things you love. Right where you are.” wants to live right here, too. Expect posts about jobs, internships, development, ideas and general awesomeness.
We’re a 2012 founded Brooklyn based “mobile meets real life” start-up with the goal to give all our published personal content a sustainable mobile meaning. Imagine a world where your content wouldn’t disappear in timelines and always be available when you need it right at the location where you are (or where you will be). Our goals are:
- preserve your digital content for local real life use
- make and profit from more sustainable decisions
- bring people of common sensibility together
- algorithming the “Small World” myth
“SMALL WORLD” MYTH INSPIRED US
How often did you hear someone saying “I was in Berlin and bumped into a friend from L.A. at this and that location. What a small world!”
We’re all comprised of people united by a common sensibility and sense of purpose: to seek out the like-minded things and share and contribute to the experiences with one another. No matter where we go, we open our lives and passports to each other to ensure that we feel a sense of belonging – and feel at home – anywhere in the world.
HOW WE ALGORTHMING THE SMALL WORLD
Compass.to is data heavy and organizes your content with a real-life approach. We help you to collect your digital footprint in beautiful collections that help you and your friends to re-use your data when you need it and connect you to whom should be connected. In a way you feel at home – anywhere you go. Our algorithm makes the complex simple.
THE MAGIC: BUILDING A “PEOPLE-TO-THINGS-TO-PEOPLE” RECOMMENDATION ENGINE
The state of the art is recommending places, people or content based on a user’s geo location or common interest.
Compass.to is taking this approach further by perfecting an algorithm which foresees your interests and can connect you to what’s most important to you, right where you are. This can be
- collections of things based on the behavior of like-minded people
- locations based on your experiences
- music that inspires you
- and things some might not be able to imagine now
ARE WE DONE YET?
No! We’re on a journey and if you want to join, feel free to apply for the Compass.to beta.
