People love to learn new skills, be it technical or no technical. They often share their learning experience with other either by tweeting about it, or by writing blog posts. But there is no centralized place where they can daily save a short summary of what they learned. These short summaries can become really helpful when one wants to quickly revise a topic or if they want to share it someone. Enters Newk - Your Learning Journal
