Mentat: Wiki on becoming a better thinker

FrontPage - Mentat Wiki

This wiki is a collaborative environment for exploring ways to become a better thinker. Topics that can be explored here include MemoryTechniques, MentalMath, CriticalThinking, BrainStorming, ShorthandSystems, NotebookSystems, and SmartDrugs. Other relevant topics are also welcome. How have you made yourself smarter?

Since I’m under a bit of a deadline today, I’m going to just link to this site and reluctantly walk away, for now; so many fascinating tricks, heuristics, and mental parlor tricks. I’ll definitely be coming back to learn the calendar feat and the Dominic system.

(In other news, I really wish I were just being schticky when I say that I remember virtually nothing from the 7-week Mnemonics class I had in college. Seriously. Nada.)

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
