I speak what language I know like everyone else does here .Most of the members are now english . The head and founder of pearltrees who is French speaks both English and French here . You want to speak French feel free . Pearltrees was founded in France but it isn't a French site . It is open to all languages . If I want to know what the French or Spanish etc are talking about I use google translate . I don't go around telling them what to speak . by Sep 22

This scanning is helpful but also harmful . We are becoming Attention deficit . People speaking and writing in short twitter like terms . Reading shallow instead of in depth . But I really get what you are talking about . I can't shove info in fast enough ! I scan fast and read slow ! ;-/ I'm a sponge though !
In highschool I had the 2 hardest classes according to the masses. They were both history and pretty boring . I used a method that took very short time and delivered high grades. I would read the questions at the back of the chapter first . Then would scan the chapter paragraphs from the front for each questions answer by looking for key words provided by each question ! I found that the answers were all connected by key words within the questions . I could do an hours work in 15 minutes ! People would ask if I was going to do the asignment ! When I told them I was finished they would just look at me in amazment ;-) I had one of the highest test scores ! by Aug 30
I think books are going the way of 35mm film cameras. I'll miss the physical browsing of the old used bookstores . And the look and feel of the vintage books . But digital makes sense in so many ways . For one less trees needed for pulp ! Good riddance to newspapers as well ! There are so many advantages to digital books ! The possibilities are endless ! by Jun 28
They are planning to make money by next year . They are waiting to see how it goes . They have something like 5 million invested here ! They hope this site will go viral ! So they can make money . They were hoping to make money by having paid content . It sounds like it won't work the way they were thinking . But they seem open to new ideas about how they might profit from this site . by Jun 28
