Bouncing Around the Blogosphere: {SoulPancake}

Actor Rainn Wilson is part of SoulPancake.

Actor Rainn Wilson is one of the creators of SoulPancake.

Here it is — an edition of “Bouncing Around the Blogosphere” totally not approved by hashbrowncasserole… I’m thinking she won’t mind. 🙂

Pancakes fall in the second tier of my favorite foods, tied with corn dogs. But that is not why I am sharing SoulPancake with you. It is a site that was in part created by Rainn Wilson of TV’s the Office. I follow this fellow on Twitter and he has mentioned the site several times, and curiosity got the better of me.

What is SoulPancake? They say “We want to make discussions about Spirituality, Creativity, and Philosophy cool again. Were they ever cool? I have no idea. But it seems like a good idea. We want to engage the user to ‘Chew on Life’s Big Questions.'”

Some of those questions:

What does it mean to be generous? Can you ever be too generous? If so, how can you learn to exhibit a healthy sense of generosity?

Given its status, is English on the fast track to becoming the world’s first universal language? Or is a universal language unnecessary?

What’s the point of guilt? Does our ability to feel guilt help us be more honest?

New questions are added often and members/users are encouraged to chime in with their own quandaries.  Some questions are even more spiritual than the above, thus much debate occurs in the comments section of each question. While readers may agree or disagree, the idea is great! I love this movement – readers and members making up the content of a site. I think that is what makes the World Wide Web so special. Thanks, Al Gore.
