The Big Idea

By Jonathan - Posted on 31 March 2009

So this is the central idea for this website: channel my enthusiasm for learning, giving myself an excuse for immersion in a series of subjects. I will share what I find along the way and will produce—as a salutary side effect—a handy learner's guide to the best the world has to offer on each subject.

Maybe others will choose to join in along the way. That would be great, but if it doesn't happen, I am perfectly content to indulge myself alone.

I am toying with the idea of focusing on one subject per month, gathering the best articles, activities, books, blogs, etc. to initiate the lay reader. I've brainstormed a few subjects: astronomy, botany, art history, chemistry, and so on. (Drawn from Fields of Science and List of Academic Disciplines.) There's enough to keep me busy for years.

Or maybe I'll just follow my enthusiasms as they come along.

Please share any thoughts or suggestions.
