The mnemonic medium can generate interesting author analytics

If you publish something in the Mnemonic medium, you get to know not only how many people loaded the page, as usual, but also information about how people engaged with the prompts on the page. Some potential applications:

  • you can estimate the distribution of where people stop reading, assuming they’re reading linearly; and for less linear pieces, you can estimate the distribution of the sections people value
  • you can see how long people continue to review your prompts after reading your essay, and how many people have internalized it to various levels (The mnemonic medium can surface “proof of memory” social signals)
  • prompt-specific data:
    • which prompts people have trouble remembering
    • which prompts people tend to re-word, skip, or disable
