📚 3 Good Articles for You
Death of Intellectual
Why do most people stop learning after school?
People are already able to learn anything they want
on their own with very little or no cost. The
possibilities of educating yourself on the internet
will only increase. To take advantage of this shift
in education, the only thing you need is
intellectual curiosity—to see learning as something
you do for fun in your “free time.”
by William Deresiewicz (27min)
If you want others to
follow, learn to be alone with your
thoughts. What we don’t have are
thinkers. People who can think for themselves.
People who can formulate a new direction: for
the country, for a corporation or a college, for
the Army—a new way of doing things, a new way of
looking at things. People, in other words, with
vision. Thinking means concentrating on one
thing long enough to develop an idea about
it. You do your best thinking by slowing
down and concentrating.
Organize The World's
by dkb (7min)
In today's world, we have access to a vast amount of
information, but it is often difficult to find what
we are looking for. Google has become one of the
most popular tools for finding information, but it
only gives us a tiny segment of what is available on
the web. We need to find ways to better organize and
access information if we want to continue to make
progress as a society.
