dropping knowledge

“On September 9, 2006, 112 of the world’s great minds will come together around the world’s largest round table at Berlin’s historic Bebelplatz square. Recorded by 112 digital cameras, they will simultaneously answer 100 questions chosen out of thousands donated by the global public. The resulting 600+ hours of audiovisual content will launch an unprecedented online resource: a knowledge portal and dialog forum created to host a global conversation covering the most pressing questions of our time.”

For more information about this exciting project or to donate your own question, take a look here.

    @Realkn: You are ASSuming here? Or do you have backup for this. As far as I know, there are no fakers on the list

    TILL, what kind of reputation other than being the mother of a dead war casualty does C.Sheehan have? What kind of authority does an ex-rwandan soldier really have? Likewise, many of the other participants seem to be little more than left wing self-proclaimed pundits without any discernible intelectual authority to lecture us on how to solve the world`s problems. The idea behind “dropping knowledge”is interesting, but it might too easily force the unsuspecting and/or the naive into accepting without further discussion this kind of dangerous, totalitarian groupthinking masked as a democratic event. You`d be better off getting your facts from Aristotle, Thucydides, Burke et al than from intellectual lightweights.
