'Knowing How To Think Empowers You Far Beyond Those Who Know Only What To Think.'

This quotation from scientist and popular meme Neil deGrasse Tyson is practically our mission statement here at Lifehacker. It's easy enough to acquire information — especially in the age of the internet — but knowing how to think about what you learn creates the possibility for you to do so much more.

    Is Lifehacker reduced to publishing random tweets now? Might as well get one of those desk calendars and publish the daily thought.

      Seriously guys, what's going on?

        Can anyone suggest similar Lifehacker-esque sites that DO publish frequent, interesting, and original material? I need some new material on the web.....

    How does on 'think' in this context? From the above comments, I'd say...critically.

    Eerily familiar to a concept of the Trivium.
