Here at Saganworks, we speak a language that we assume everyone knows. So what is a Sagan? And what do you do with it? Read on to learn why we are here and why you might care a little.
So there’s this guy named Carl Sagan – not sure if you’ve heard of him. He’s kind of a big deal around here.
Among his endless contributions to science and education, he encouraged everyone to be open to new ideas yet question everything. I remember watching Cosmos as a kid and thinking how amazingly small we really are – there’s so much unknown out there and how fun is it to realize how much could be knowable?!
What an inspiration Carl Sagan is; one that ultimately led to the creation of Saganworks. We innovate. We create. We challenge each other. We advocate for what is right. We advocate for inclusivity. We like trying new things. We like making people smile. We like making people wonder. We like the black hole – we want to dive in. We know we are onto something really freaking awesome and we want everyone to join us.
So while Saganworks is inspired from Carl Sagan, the term “Sagan” also represents what the solution itself is:
S – Spatially
A – Accessible
G – Gallery of
A – Archived
N – kNowledge
What goes into a Sagan?
Ok so now what? You fill your Sagan with your stuff; what we like to call KI’s and FO’s….yea, more of that weird Saganworks language
K – Knowledge
I – Item
(also known as your stuff!) These are your files: docs, pics, music, etc.
F – Furniture
O – Object
(that’s right; we give you TONS of furniture to decorate your Sagan as weird as you’d like)
What can you do with a Sagan?
What kind of Sagan can you build? ANY! There are literally infinite ways to customize a room of your own knowledge:
- A photo album for your mom
- Your favorite Jamaican cuisine
- Van Gogh’s best work (in your opinion)
- The History of Drag
- HIPAA regulations
- Brand strategy
Should I go on? Fun, quirky, professional, storytelling; you name it.
Alright; so you got the run down on the origin of Saganworks and our love for Carl Sagan himself. Then you got the concept of a Sagan: a room filled with your files and customized to your liking; that’s it. Even better, you can build TONS of rooms and connect them – then comes the term “Saganworks”. Think of your Saganworks like your map view of the universe you created. Too far down the rabbit hole? OK we’ll back up.
Mash all these acronyms together and you get a freaking sweet 3D software that allows you to build your room, connect multiple rooms, share with others (or no one), and just have some fun organizing, recalling, learning and collaborating. We’re here for you to use us how you’d like to.
We’re but a mere pale blue dot – let’s dive into the unknown and challenge the status quo along the way!
