"Narrative compression is the secret to arresting dialogue" - Will Storr
Mini Essays are my effort at extreme narrative compression.
Amazon has a well known six-page memo limit, where Jeff Bezos has instilled an intense focus on strucured narrative storytelling for internal comms. The idea is that this forces deeper thought about what is most important and how things are related.
I love the idea of learning through repeatedly condensing ideas, and it ties nicely with Richard Feynman's technique of reviewing and simplifying until you truly understand.
So Mini Essays will be narratives simplified to one screen (inspiration for this came from Erik Stromberg's screenshot essays). These will be fun to make and hopefully, fun to read!
