Big Question Meet the EDGE Question


Tue Jan 02 2007


I thought that in honor of the success of the Big Question series, I would introduce my other favorite question and answer series; the question of the year from the World Question Center. This series is populated by the members of the Edge Foundation:

"The mandate of Edge Foundation is to promote inquiry into and discussion of intellectual,philosophical, artistic, and literary issues, as well as to work for the intellectual and social achievement of society."


You think we're asking big questions, try some of the Edge's past entries like What Now? or What Do You Believe Is True Even Though You Can't Prove It? or my personal favorite What's Your Law?

This year, the entry is What Are You Optimistic About? Why? While all the entries are thought-provoking, I thought some of the ones most relevant to us here on LCB might be:

Early Detection of Learning Disabilities or Difficulties

Understanding What Really Happens To Humans In Groups

A Knowledge Driven Economy Allows Individuals to Lead Millions Out of Poverty In a Single Generation


Humans Will Learn to Learn From Diversity

The End of the Commoditization of Knowledge

A Breakthrough in Understanding Intelligence is around the Corner

The Globalization Of Higher Education

Technology in Education
