Re: Re: How do you use Big Think?
Victoria - Congratulations to you and you colleagues. I've been stamping around BigThink, leaving my mark, for a week or so now and am totally impressed. In the past, I've never been comfortable in baring my soul in public-forums. The reason is basically that one can often be forced into defending one's views with anonymous-nobodies. Don't get me wrong, I love healthy debate [ as you might guess from some of the sensitive subjects I've touched upon ], but I like to know who I'm debating with and there credentials. To fully succeed, BigThink needs to encourage people to bare there identities, as most have to date. Another success, and maybe a first, is the way you guys have worked the links and peer-rating system. You have anticipated user-navigation exceedingly well. Can't wait for the site to go 'live' and introduce all those new debaters.

- Historically, Europe is where most apparitions have been reported, but the U.S. is pretty fertile ground too.
