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.

Mossad Accused

February 18, 2010, 6:21 AM
Dubai has pointed the finger of blame at Israel’s national intelligence agency, Mossad, for the suspected hit-squad assassination of Hamas military commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. “Officials in Dubai have all but given up hope of catching the killers of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh after admitting that Mossad is its prime suspect. Even if the assassins were somehow identified, the United Arab Emirates has no diplomatic relations with Israel, let alone judicial co-operation agreements. Dubai police have never ruled Mossad out of their investigation but have stopped short of accusing Israel’s spy agency directly until now. However, with at least seven of the eleven named suspects in the case now revealed to have used the stolen identities of Israelis with dual nationalities, officials in the Gulf state concede that all the evidence points to a hit ordered by Tel Aviv. The Hamas leader was assassinated in his Dubai hotel room last month. Officials in Dubai have confirmed that the Gulf state is now considering rescinding the 11 international arrest warrants issued on Tuesday, including the six British citizens initially named as suspects.”
