Hello I am Arthur, founder and CEO of Planet. Ever since I’ve started to “explain revolutions” to friends then to thousands of readers, my focus has always remained the same: to create useful content that people love and leaves them wanting to make a dent in the world. Engaging information that makes them hope they will be able to take part in the future.
Here are the core ideas that we truly believe in at Planet, and that drive our action from the beginning.
Support and inspire people who wants to build the future by giving them structuring ideas about big revolutions of our current times.
PLANET MAKES MEMORABLE STORIES OUT OF REAL NEWS
Planet selects, summarizes and explains the news from various sources, for your education. Like a caring friend, planet informs you about our current times, and it becomes crystal clear. It’s magic.
GASTRONOMY FOR THOUGHTS
The clickbait news and nervous conversations bombarding us won’t survive our human quest for learning. Authentic, structured and qualitative content is what we need to invent the future. Selection is a must, synthesis a duty, emotion a gem.
WE ARE ALL TIRED OF NON-INFORMATION
The vast majority of media are highly dependent of web traffic and social networks. Time has come to weight topics by their importance and to stop sensationalism. It’s vital.
WRITING IS A SUPERPOWER
We think information needs to be refined, colored and perfectly articulated for the reader to understand and reflect about any topic quickly. Good stories are the content we remember and understand the best.
WE EXIST TO CONNECT THE DOTS
In a time of networks and connexions, anyone can find what they don’t know by searching the web. We think that the value is to produce intelligence from all existing news, and connect the dots to give the keys to understand what is at stake behind every revolution.
COMPLEXITY IS THE REAL CHALLENGE
We produce more information today than we ever did in our whole history. There has never been a stronger need for great journalism that makes complex revolutions accessible to everyone to strengthen our democracies.
EDUCATION DRIVES EMANCIPATION
With the Internet, education is no longer a question of knowledge ; it’s a matter of constantly learning how to think from different pieces of information. Education gives the power to make a dent in the world.
CULTURE DEFINITELY NEEDS ENTERTAINMENT
Learning is an intense process. Entertainment makes it easier and much stronger over time.
HUMANITY IS AT AN INFLECTION POINT
With the internet, the time we are currently living in is unique. The world is being deeply redesigned by technology. People need to understand the incredible things happening around them, and how this is impacting their lives and environment.
FUTURE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN BUILD
Predicting the future is impossible. But future has always been made by people who invented the world they desired.
