"We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely." - E.O, Wilson
I have a problem. No, actually, we all have a problem. The Internet is flooded with a never-ending Tsunami of information. And every year it exponentially grows. And we continue to suffocate in a flood of data where the great majority is personal updates, commercials, doom and gloom news, gossip, sexy images and marketing bait. I must admit I love cute pet videos, sexy visuals, and keeping up with my inner circle as much as the next. But I feel the real power of the internet is to provide a clearer path to the gems of wisdom, instead of burying it in a sea of trivialism. This opens the door for clever marketers to blur the line between truth and fiction, especially in the world of nutrition and fitness.
What are we to do? How can we overcome this dilemma? I feel more should be done to prevent this global affliction.
So I started TigerFit Science (@tigerfit_science). This is my attempt to share, shine and stay aware of both the classical findings and the newest research in combat sports science. I'm an active competitor as well as a coach, so it will be slow motion in the beginning. I will attempt to summarize and compile findings, reviews, lists and links of the latest podcasts and scientific literature that is related to combat sports--specifically nutrition, fitness and psychology. Within the next year, I will hire a small team to share the workload and really step on the gas. Within a few years, the mission is to serve as a database of combat sports science wisdom.
I'm open to any suggestions or comments on how to best serve the combat sports community in this regard.
