Robin Good's curator insight, November 3, 2013 2:39 PM



Maria Popova is the author of Literary Jukebox, a fascinating collection of daily quotes from her favorite books, each one thematically matched to a song.


She writes about it: "Sometimes, the connections will be fairly obvious. Other times, they might be more esoteric and require some reflection.


Literary Jukebox is truly a work of love and a great example of how curating something you truly enjoy, can create permanent value, while providing cultural insight, an opportunity for music discovery to the reader as well as exposure and visibility to the books and music authors included.



N.B.: I encourage you to support Maria's work, as she is a brilliant and inspiring mind and her work on Brain Pickings is a clear demonstration of someone whose work benefits no big brand, advertiser or sponsor, but the likes of you and me and our ability to remain curious.

Hi Robin, thanks for pointing out the search engine. I remain convinced that it will be very difficult for Monogram to succeed. There is a huge competition for fashionista's time and retailers' products out there and some of the competitors like Fab.com, The Fancy, Polyvore and many others are pretty compelling. And There are also a lot of retailers that let customers put together lookboks and share them with their community (like the fabulous site net-à-porter)

I meant "lookbooks"

Yes Therese, I agree. I am actually glad that Monogram and other small startups are not refraining from attempting to innovate in this apparently crowded space, as I am convinced that there is still plenty of space for many new companies, unless each one of them wants to be the new Pinterest. If they specialize and work on niche audiences and specific use cases I think they may indeed provide a useful service for many. And in the end if they do not try what better suggestion do you have for them? :-)
