Public user profiles allow Amplenote users to see what their fellow users are getting done. Since we aspire to build the most effective software for short-term and long-term goals, a lot of ambitious people end up using Amplenote. It's fascinating to learn how much they get done with it. In this sense, the Amplenote public profile gallery serves as a destination to get inspired by what is possible by getting organized and staying focused.
But that's only one of the ways that you can leverage a public profile to your benefit. Here are a few others:
Profile gallery makes it easy to spot those open to collaboration
The most satisfying goals are often collaborative ones. It's more fun to work on a project when you have someone to discuss it with. And two people can get more done than one.
Amplenote Badges offer collectors a fun way to amass proof of their myriad achievements:
Badges add visual interest to your profile page and tell a story about your interests and engagement.
Many Amplenote users are avid writers. There's much to be gleaned from reading and understanding the different subjects that have captivated the minds of ambitious thinkers.
There's no right way to use Amplenote. Some people have thousands of tasks, some have less than 100. Browsing profiles offers an intriguing look into the different styles of productivity that are being experimented with. If a user mentions a tactic that's interesting, you can use the "How best to contact me" response to potentially connect with them and discuss their methods.
The better we understand our users, the better we can build a product that serves their needs. Since Amplenote employees browse public profiles on a weekly basis, filling out your profile gives us a chance to ensure we're building a product maximally relevant to your needs.
