Are.na is a place to save content, create collections over time and connect ideas. Privately or with other people.
Students (highly curious and open to new information), hobbyists (deeply into a topic or topics, narrowly focused) or what we call connected knowledge collectors (those more experienced but highly curious information gatherers who can make disparate connections between disciplines) have been the core of our community for 12 years and 341 days
With no ads, likes, or recommendations, Are.na is a more mindful space where you can work through any project over time. It's a place to structure your ideas and build new forms of knowledge together.

Are.na has many co-founders. Currently, a small team is building the platform:
You can chat with them most Friday mornings (EST) on Discord.
Here you can see what we’ve shipped recently, what we’re building next, and how we’re doing as a company.
By sharing this information we aim to demystify the weird and wonderful process of working on a mostly bootstrapped web company. We’re working our hardest to build a space that’s mindful, respectful, and accountable to our thousands of lovely members. We have lots of ideas for how to do a better job, as well as lots of challenges.
This is meant to be as transparent as reasonably possible. If there’s something you don’t see here that you’d like to know, just email everyone@are.na.
Road to self-sustainability
Are.na’s mission is to build a member-supported community. Since we're accountable to our members instead of advertisers, our incentive is always to build a tool that fosters learning and genuine collaboration. This also means that Are.na’s future relies entirely on community contributions. Here’s how you can help:
