No upcoming Meetups
What we're about
When was the last time you learnt something just for the heck of it ? Not for school, not for college, job or career but just because you were curious ? This group is dedicated to the joy of learning.
What it is ?
A learning group, where every week , different people present on topics drawn from a wide variety of sciences like anthropology, philosophy, economics, technology etc. Pretty much anything that comes under the purview of human knowledge. It is encouraged to pick topics which are NOT from your primary area of expertise. That will be enriching experience for you as well as the others and also ties into our theme of learning something new (not presenting something you already know). Needless to say, you are not expected to be an expert on anything
Care will be taken to ensure that topics are as diverse as possible, and not just drawn from one area ( say technology)
As mentioned above the primary motivation is the joy of learning. I loved Quora before, but have an issue with the quality now. Haven't found anything to scratch that itch.
What topics are not included ?
Topics from human experience (as opposed to knowledge) and Self-help. While these are very important, and there should be forums discuss them, this is not one of them
What's in it for you ?
Learning, public speaking, communication ( as in ability to teach complex concepts in a simple way) and a community.
At this point, I am just starting this group to gauge interest. I will check back in 2-3 weeks to see, if there are enough interested people. If so, we will define a format and start meeting.
