Our Mission is Simple.

Help the World Get Up to Speed Quickly

While we absolutely see the need for the traditional in-depth resources, more and more people are looking for quick, “elevator pitch” style explanations to gain a basic understanding on topics. By keeping submissions on AbridgeMe to a maximum of 100 words, knowledge seekers are guaranteed concise and to-the-point explanations.  Of course, if a topic piques your interest, AbridgeMe will help you dive-in deeper with relevant current news and related topics. 


“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”
