What is the College of Curiosity?
Well, it’s not a school or a degree-granting institution. We’re a group of like-minded individuals who hope to promote curiosity and creativity. Here is some media about us.
Who is Jeff Wagg?
Jeff Wagg is the curator of the College of Curiosity. It’s his job to make sure things are factual, truthful, and interesting. For more detail, here’s a short description that he didn’t write.
What do you do?
We have many activities including:
- Field Trips to locations exotic and mundane
- Public Appearances
- Our Connections-style Blog, The Daily Curio
- Daily Mystery Objects
- Three Podcasts
How do you make money?
It’s not about making money. We’re associated with Absolutely Cruising, and we’re Amazon associates, but the College of Curiosity is not a profit-center. Most of what we do is completely free of charge.
So if you’re not making money, why are you doing this?
Because we think the world is better when curiosity is a part of everyone’s lives. Curiosity can be used to treat many of the world’s ills. Hatred, fear, and apathy are dismissed by a curious worldview. Some might say there is a “cure” in “curiosity,” but we’ll just stand by our belief that curiosity does a lot of good. And it’s a lot of fun too!
Did you know that Koalas have two thumbs?
Yes, we did! And we also know that they’re being frequently drunk is a myth, though they do smell like cough drops.
So you’re a bunch of know-it-alls…
No, not at all. While we have amassed a lot of unusual knowledge, every answer opens up more questions. In fact we realize we know very little, and that much of what we know is wrong. We don’t think this is a bad thing, in fact it’s part of what keeps us going.
How can I be involved?
There are many ways, but since we’re new the most important thing you can do is spread the word. Write an iTune review or repost our things. Join us on a field trip or attend one of our conferences. If you’d like to help out, drop us a line – we always have a need for volunteers.
Do you accept donations?
Yes, we do, though as we’re not a non-profit, and there’s no tax deduction. We promise to put the money towards furthering curiosity.
