What we're about
This is a group by and for people wanting to meet other that has as many passions and ideas as themselves and to talk, discuss, share and listen to other like minded people.
Are You A Scanner?
Are you fascinated by something different every week?
Do you love to create Art, Music, Writing, Websites, Products, Businesses?
Does the thought of concentrating on one topic, skill or job for the rest of your life horrify you?
Do you start lots of projects but rarely finish any of them?
Does trying to choose between all your interests stress you out?
Are you currently reading 5, 10 or even more books?
Then you are most likely a "Scanner" or a "Renaissance Soul". Barbara Sher coined the term “Scanner” back in 1994 and continue working on the topic in her book "Refuse to Choose!" (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Refuse-Choose-Revolutionary-Program-Everything/dp/1594863032/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1374479801&sr=8-5&keywords=barbara+sher). Here (http://getmotivation.com/articlelib/articles/barbara_sher_scanner.html) is even more information.
Other terms used for the same people are Renaissance Souls, Polymaths or Multipotentialites, but we all share the same issue: There is not enough hours in a day or days in a year for us to be able to both set up a radio program, learn to play the flute, take a degree in philosophy AND be a full time yogi. Or play the drums, start a business, have a "normal job", kite surf and learn to draw (as is the case with myself).
To my experience there are a couple of things we do share that makes meeting up deliver extra value: Most scanners are very interesting people. Per definition they have many interesting life stories to tell. And scanners normally have loads of ideas and are not afraid to share them.
So, on that note: Please feel free to join to meet interesting people and share or listen to cool ideas!
