Critical thinking

Bruce MacEwen, over at Adam Smith, Esq., urges you to read this Harvard Business Review column to determine whether you really are a critical thinker. He says that he thought he was preblogging, but was surprised to learn how passively he used to absorb information when he wasn't thinking of how to "critique, extrapolate, synthesize, or otherwise comment intelligently."

I'm experiencing this phenomenon this week, as I write this blog. Reading the blawgs is time-consuming, and commenting on them takes it up a couple of notches. The upside is that you get so much more out of what you read when you are forced to write your thoughts down, which is one reason I enjoy blogging so much. I sense Adam Smith, Esq. agrees.
