The Network is The Thinkery’s online community. This is not one of those traditional social network thingies; it’s an interest network, where people come together around a shared interest. Here, the interest is thinking — being thoughtful about ourselves, each other, and the world around us. It’s a smashing alternative to traditional social networks. It’s free, and it’s worth every penny. Wait — scratch that. It’s free, and it’s invaluable.

Every day, Network members are given opportunities to learn new stuff, engage in fun puzzles and games that challenge their minds, see things in new ways, share their views, knowledge, and experiences, and connect with other people who also have a passion to engage their mind.

The best way to know what the Network experience is like is to check it out.

“I love your community. I love all of your thought-provoking posts. I feel like a kid in a candy store!” (S.M.)

“It’s a thoughtful alternative to Facebook, etc. I am thoroughly enjoying the site, the conversation, and thought. It’s stimulating. Very few rules — just a guideline of civility and consideration of others’ feelings. But, believe me, it’s not milk toast. So, think before you speak, and enjoy the intellectual stimulation that follows.” (G.S.)

“It’s fantastic. Very well done.” (S.A.)

“This is a fun and enjoyable social network that is far from the norm. Get ready to enter the world of … The Thinkery!!” (M.F.)

“I’m excited about this arena and foundation of positive, thoughtful expression. … We need to try and steer public discourse from the aggressive news format type to a more considerate, hopeful, and helpful form of support. … I can speak my mind without fear of being attacked. You’re bringing civility back. What a great concept.” (G.S.)

“Love this! So awesome!!!!” (D.L.)
