Bored?  Uninspired?  Desperate for a Muse?  Brain hungry for knowledge?  Need someone to share your same ideas about quantum physics?  Want an explanation as to why your creative mind always wonders?  Want advice for your hedge-fund?  All of these mental stalemates (and many, many, many more) can more than likely be resolved all in one place (Don’t you just love the internet?!?!).  A lovely little place in the world called the Big Think.

So who is the Big Think exactly?  It’s hundreds of the Worlds leading experts, across several fields of experience, putting their high IQ’s to good use.  Spreading the power of knowledge.  Oh, and it’s  all for free!!  Humanitarians and experts like: Christopher Walsh: Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School; Charlton McIlwain: Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication, NYU; Malcolm Gladwell: Author; Edward Norton: Actor and Philanthropist and Jimmy Carter: Former U.S. President… just to name a very small few. 

The categories are vast… the talent is unimaginable… their knowledge is impressive and it is always expanding.  If you have 5 minutes… check it out and visit your favorite categories, if you have a few hours… go and give your brain a huge loving bear-hug of knowledge.  I can promise you one thing, you won’t be sorry.

Using their own brain-power… here’s how the Big Think describes their purpose in life:

Big Think is a global forum connecting people and ideas.

It may be a cliché to say that knowledge is power, but that doesn’t make the statement any less true. We know that there are just 24 hours in a day, that you are bombarded with information, and that the bombardment will only escalate.

We believe that not all information is equal. We believe that expertise is invaluable and should be shared. If you had a heart problem and could afford the counsel of the world’s leading cardiologists, you would seek their advice. If you owned a business and wanted to expand into China or Russia, you’d want to hear from people who had already done that. If you planned to write a novel or a screenplay, you’d want to get pointers from the world’s leading writers. At Big Think, we put you in contact with the ideas of very smart people.

We do not believe that experts have all the answers. On many subjects deep thinkers disagree. We do believe that we will all make better decisions in our personal and professional lives if our thinking is informed by expert opinion.
