Our mission at Trickle is to make lifelong learning effortless. That mission has a profound influence on the type of content we welcome on the platform. The primary purpose of any content on Trickle must be to enable learning. While that narrows down the range of content on Trickle a little, the potential scope remains immense. Collectively, lifelong learners have an immense range of interests. And there are many different ways to present information to facilitate learning. So authors have significant freedom in how they present their material. However, it should be clear that their intent is to explain ideas and concepts rather than to sell, advertise, or promote a product or service.
