Why is it called "Munger"?
The idea for Munger was inspired by Charlie Munger, the thinking man's billionaire. Charlie is Warren Buffet's business partner and one of the wisest men in the public sphere.
One of his key life principles is building what he calls "mental models," which are essentially lenses through which to view the world. He stresses the importance of building knowledge in a wide range of topics so it's possible to approach problems from many angles.
Someone with a solid understanding of behavioral psychology, economics, finance, geopolitics, philosophy, and the scientifc method will make better decisions than someone who bases all of their decisions solely on economic theory, for example.
I built Munger to make it easy to build lasting knowledge in a wide range of topics. Simply consuming information is not enough. True understanding comes from reflecting on ideas and incorporating them into your existing latticework of knowledge.
How much does it cost?
You can create up to 50 notebooks for free. That's usually plenty of space to know whether or not Munger is right for you. After that, you can upgrade to Plus ($2.99/month) or Premium ($4.99/month).
I think of wisdom as personal software for decision making. When you are wise, you know how to make the best out of every situation you're put in. You may not have control over external factors, but you can always decide how you react to them. Wisdom is an overlooked attribute, but I think it is something we should all proactively develop.
Knowledge is important, but if all you can do is bang back some facts, what do you really know? I believe in reflecting on ideas and creating a personal understanding of them. I also believe that anyone can lead a more fulfilling life by fully digesting the knowledge and wisdom of the smartest people who came before us. I built Munger to make that easier to do.

Desktop and mobile apps are in the works, as well as a handful of other great features.
