Notes of a Binge Thinker

What is binge thinking?

I am sure many of you are wondering, “What exactly is this binge thinking thing?”  Of course, I was not the first one to think of the concept.  As I state in my About Adam page, my staff gets credit for introducing me to it.    There are have been others before me. 

Urban Dictionary defines it as “A massive burst of brain activity, mostly useless, in one sitting. This usually leads to temporary memory loss, information poisoning…..”     Diablo Cody has written a column for Entertainment Weekly called Binge Thinking.  We also have our share of Youtube videos devoted to the subject.    Here is one that takes on a more serious tone about college students attempting to get through the college experience. 

With my blog, I want to share with you my own binge thinking experiences, but I want to take it a step further.  I want to introduce the concept of the “Binge Thinking Collective (BTC).”    I want to involve others in my thinking experiments and invite them to share with the rest of the BTC their own thoughts on the topic of the moment.  Once again, I am really not reinviting the wheel here.  We have had discussion groups on the Internet for years.  My take on it, however, is to have burst discussions to better understand the BTC conscience of a particular subject area.   With so many things competing for our attention, the BTC will be a way for people to devote ten to fifteen minutes brainstorming on a subject and then moving on with their lives.  Hopefully, every member of the BTC will learn something from the experience that will make their lives better. 

I invite you, then, to join me as I post a new thought to the blog on a weekly basis and ask others to tackle the binge thinking with me and become part of the BTC.
