JAMES BURKE CONNECTIONS APP Kickstarter campaign launched

With this App, you too can think like James Burke.

Harrisonburg, Va, 2016-Nov-22 — /EPR Network/ — Knowledge Discoveries LLC today announced a Kickstarter Campaign to fund development of the James Burke Connections App. James Burke is renowned for his ability to find intriguing connections among ideas. With this app, you too can think like James.


James Burke has been referred to as one of the most intriguing minds in the Western world (Washington Post, 1994). The hallmark of his thinking style is to identify the connections among seemingly unrelated events. Using a network of links and nodes and highlighting the inter-connections among them, James’ unique gift is the ability to see relations among people and ideas where others have not.

He has created dozens of books, articles, and television series around the notion that, as he says so famously, “Everything is connected to everything else, including you too, of course.”


The app combines the unexpected connections of Burke’s K-web with the rich and extensive content housed in Wikipedia to create a new type of knowledge tool. With the App, you can Explore, Discover, and Present new ideas, connections, and knowledge in ways never before possible. With the App, you can put the power of connected thinking to work for you, for school projects, business presentations, or ideas you want to develop.

The Kickstarter Campaign is open now and is accepting contributions in amounts from $5 to $1000 with rewards available for JB Noodlers, JB Wikipedia Editors, JB Teacher Ambassadors, along with signed James Burke memorabilia (books, DVDs). The Campaign runs until January 2, 2017.

See the Kickstarter site at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/504632459/james-burke-connections-app. A functional prototype of the App is available at the site.

James is available for interviews (phone, Skype). Media inquiries should be directed to RichIngram@KnowledgeDiscoveries.com (540 209-0520).
