Jim McGee wrote a great piece on tools and practices. He argues that the ease of getting started with the first 5% is deceptive. I think it is important that we distinguish between “deep thought and collaborative work”. Tools for these two coincide only for roughly 5%.
Why can’t media be like a conversation? What makes the internet a “polarization factory” of ‘us vs. them’? I think the problem is that is has turned too much towards ‘push’ media.
What will prove as ‘distinctively human’ and will survive the cognitive automation? I think it is the personal, the individual, the subjective, and this convinced me of Downes’s ‘personal learning’.
Seven habits make my workflow satisfying. In particular: pull over push, optimized for browse rather than search, and careless capturing but cultivating later. Continue reading
Why do learners need interactivity? Because watching their peers recognizing helps their own recognizing more than consuming canned resources.
20 interesting goals from a new game can also be used for something entirely different: You can try to find connections between them. E.g., some are similar to others, or impact others in positive or negative ways, seem to include others, or be otherwise related. And thinking about their complex relationships can be too difficult if you only look at a linear list and most of the connections are only in your head. This might be a good opportunity to demonstrate the benefit of a think tool.
My tool is now able to import from/ export to tools that are inspired by Luhmann’s famous Zettelkasten. The magic of this was that he allowed for arbitrary branching at every point in his hierarchical numbering scheme,
The new page is a remix of all my blog posts about McGilchrist’s (@divided_brain) and @Downes’ ideas on recognizing: https://x28newblog.wordpress.com/recognizing-2/
Does a neural network need domain knowledge? I think artificial ones do, but human ones do not because they use recognition from the beginning.
