The Arcanum Doors Open to Private Beta!
Big news! Masters are now selecting their first Apprentices into www.TheArcanum.com
! +Varina Patel
just selected 20 Apprentices, who are walking through the mysterious doors into the magical academy :)
Now, this is early beta, so we are going very slow and observing & measuring everything. So we do certainly ask for your patience, but the amazing Masters here are 100% committed to helping you find your own personal, artistic path.
This is a totally new way to learn and get new skills. No system like this has ever been built before — a dynamic and organic system of truly personal
learning in a self-replicating network. This first group of people are true believers, and we look forward to creating something that we feels changes the world. Thank you so much for joining us so we can change the world together.
Below, you can see a screenshot of the awesome tool that the Masters are using to select their Apprentices. You may also be able to look close and see that we're using something very cool called "Sort by Passion" — this screenshot is only showing a subset of the Apprentices, but you get the idea.
