A software developer and I were having lunch in the food court of a Las Vegas mega hotel.

(It may have been The Venetian for those of you keeping score at home.)

We were talking about favorite podcasts and books when he said if you can just extract a few golden nuggets from a book then it’s well worth it.

That paraphrase has always stuck with me.

The problem, as we talked about then and I’ll rehash now, is getting to those gold nuggets of info.

Books take a long time to read.

And sometimes they’re complex and hard to understand so the gold isn’t always blinding us when we open up the treasure chest.

Much like real life, mining for book gold is a pain in the ass.

Notevantage is a gateway that allows you to access random gold nuggets.
