Play. Work. Solve
The Fact Foundry is a global public think tank, which is currently being built to become a source of insight to decision makers. This may sound ambitious, but the world and technology has enabled us to connect to each other in ways that seemed impossible a mere ten years ago.
The use of social media technologies and the way we interact with each other make it possible for us to share across boundaries our thoughts, ideas and insights.
Through the use of community gaming, crowdsourcing and traditional research and analysis, The Fact Foundry wants to involve as many minds as possible to provide insights into the challenges of the day.
Information has become free and abundant, but insight is what counts and that lies within the minds of people. This is where the foundry analogy becomes so important. At The Fact Foundry we want to take all these available sources and put it through a foundry process so that when the final product is finally poured
it is rich, gleaming and pure.
In this world it would seem that mediocrity is somehow the standard and that ‘smart’ is rarely celebrated. We want to celebrate the ‘smart’ that resides in all of us.
The areas in which The Fact Foundry focus and create dialogue and insight in are:
• Economic and business issues
• Technology and Science
• Environmental Issues
Join The Fact Foundry, where every insight counts.
