In our digital age, we are simply drowning in information. The web offers us infinite data points, news stories, tweets, wikis, status updates, etc., but very little to connect the dots or illuminate the larger patterns linking them together. We believe that success in the future is about knowing the ideas that allow you to manage and master this universe of information. Therefore, we aim to help you move above and beyond random information, toward real knowledge, offering big ideas from fields outside your own that you can apply toward the questions and challenges in your own life. When it comes to news, trends, and insights that affect your industry and your life, balanced against your busy schedules it comes down to quality, not quantity. Which is why we are content curators, not “copy-and-pasters.” Our experienced Editors deliver relevant content with above-average engagement rates across dozen+ industries while covering a broad array of business & personal subject matter. All of this, complemented by the unique perspectives of our team of Columnists and Featured Contributors. The end result is a one-stop forum where you can enjoy an optimal speed of knowledge founded upon RICH, UNIQUE, RELEVANT, INFORMATIVE and REMARKABLE thought leadership!

Based at the University of California, Berkeley, the Greater Good Science Center studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society. Located one of the world’s leading institutions of research and higher education, the GGSC is unique in its commitment to both science and practice: Not only do we sponsor groundbreaking scientific research into social and emotional well-being, we help people apply this research to their personal and professional lives. Since 2001, we have been at the fore of a new scientific movement to explore the roots of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior, and the science of a meaningful life. Greater Good magazine turns scientific research into stories, tips, and tools for a happier life and a more compassionate society. Through articles, videos, quizzes, and podcasts, we bridge the gap between scientific journals and people’s daily lives, particularly for parents, educators, business leaders, and healthcare professionals.
The world is full of wonderful and inspiring stories, some unfolding in distant places while others are happening right next door. KarmaTube is dedicated to bringing more of these stories to light, using the power of online video to express and multiply acts of kindness, beauty, and generosity. Our vision is to create a global network of volunteers who capture these stories, using simple digital video cameras. While some of the stories produced may be polished and professional, others diamonds-in-the-rough, the most important thing is that they celebrate the work of change-makers; demonstrating that small acts performed by individuals all around the world can ignite a “tipping point.” We shift from consumers to become active contributors in creating a better world for ourselves, those around us, and for many generations to come. To inspire individuals to make a change in their own lives, for each video KarmaTube offers three simple suggestions for viewers to support the spirit shown in the video. These can be as simple as reflecting on a topic, planting a tree, to performing a random act of kindness. KarmaTube is a project of ServiceSpace, an all-volunteer run non-profit organization. Our aim is to enable individuals to contribute in meaningful ways to the world around them. Together, we hope to “be the change we wish to see in the world..

Founded in 2011, The Public Domain Review is an online journal and not-for-profit project dedicated to the exploration of curious and compelling works from the history of art, literature, and ideas. In particular, as our name suggests, the focus is on works which have now fallen into the public domain, that vast commons of out-of-copyright material that everyone is free to enjoy, share, and build upon without restriction. Our aim is to promote and celebrate the public domain in all its abundance and variety, and help our readers explore its rich terrain – like a small exhibition gallery at the entrance to an immense network of archives and storage rooms that lie beyond. With a focus on the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of content which truly celebrates the breadth and diversity of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it.
