What is Big Think?  

We are Big Idea Hunters…

We live in a time of information abundance, which far too many of us see as information overload. With the sum total of human knowledge, past and present, at our fingertips, we’re faced with a crisis of attention: which ideas should we engage with, and why? Big Think is an evolving roadmap to the best thinking on the planet — the ideas that can help you think flexibly and act decisively in a multivariate world.

A word about Big Ideas and Themes — The architecture of Big Think

Big ideas are lenses for envisioning the future. Every article and video on bigthink.com and on our learning platforms is based on an emerging “big idea” that is significant, widely relevant, and actionable. We’re sifting the noise for the questions and insights that have the power to change all of our lives, for decades to come. For example, reverse-engineering is a big idea in that the concept is increasingly useful across multiple disciplines, from education to nanotechnology.

Themes are the seven broad umbrellas under which we organize the hundreds of big ideas that populate Big Think. They include New World Order, Earth and Beyond, 21st Century Living, Going Mental, Extreme Biology, Power and Influence, and Inventing the Future.

New on Ebon Musings: Spanish Translations

October 21, 2008, 12:38 AM

I'm very pleased to announce that reader David Cabrera has volunteered to translate some of the essays on Ebon Musings into Spanish. He's already completed work on five of them: the disclaimer and introduction, "Why Ebon Musings?", "Life of Wonder" and "All Possible Worlds". I've added links to the Spanish versions of these five from the index and site map on Ebon Musings. All the complete translations are also listed here:

http://www.ebonmusings.org/atheism/espanol/

That page is still a little rough, but it's a work in progress. Depending on David's free time and interest (and, of course, any other volunteers who want to translate are welcome to step up as well), I hope to get, at the very least, all of the Foundational Essays translated. I may even be able to take part in that effort myself by year's end.

I'm sincerely grateful to David for his time and effort in helping to bring our message to people in non-English-speaking cultures. And rest assured, I haven't forgotten Ebon Musings. Since completing my book, I've resumed working on it. Expect a brand-new essay later this month or early next month.

UPDATE: Thanks to Daylight Atheism reader Juan Felipe, we now also have a translation of "One More Burning Bush". Additional translators are welcomed!
