BBC Friday 17 January 2014 – Think Club “Thinking About Thinking”

This Friday BBC Founding Regular Bill Ruddick will lead a BBCThink Club session on the delightful subject: “Thinking About Thinking.” 

What could be more exciting than that!

Bring your brains. And if you’re not thinking when you get here, well, you just might be when you leave….meta-cognition, feedback loop, looking, seeing, not getting confused. What fun! What a way to kick off THINK CLUB in 2014, with more sessions scattered haphazardly (or appearingly so) throughout the coming year.Think Club Resources useful for getting into the BBC thinking mood (google doc pdf format): Thinking Hats & Think Club Bibliography. And for those who missed it, here’s Bill Ruddick’s original “Think Club” presentation from BBC Friday 15 February 2013Think Club Presentation. Logic & analytic thinking from KaveDragen Ink: informal fallacies & formal deductive reasoning.

Think About It.

Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So, invite your friends and associates to join us for this thoughtful, if not just slightly metacritical, and very exciting event in real space and real time … and another delicious cup of BBC!
