To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark. ― Victor Hugo
  • Knowledge - "All about why we know even if we don't know what we know." (Evans,D 2012)
  • "Vaguely right is better than precisely wrong."
  • "It is better to be roughly right than precisely wrong" is often attributed to the economist, John Maynard Keynes, however, the original quote comes from Carveth Read, the British philosopher and logician: It is better to be vaguely right than exactly wrong.

Introduction

This is a personal exploration of data, information, knowledge and wisdom.

For many years now humanity has had a fascination with the growth of the internet and the underlying and exponential surge in available information at one’s fingertips. While a trip to the library is still as exciting as it was as a child, the ability today to immerse oneself immediately and at almost any time into the deep sea of knowledge that is the World Wide Web, is breathtaking.

Piracy and commercial interests aside, to be able to listen, read and watch almost anything on demand in ubiquitous internet society is an experience unique to our generation and one which demands understanding.

What follows within this wiki is a commentary on knowledge. Material has also been published in my blog with wiki-links added as appropriate. This site is dynamic with posts being updated and new articles appearing under a range of knowledge related topics. Some of the content is quite basic and will develop over time.

I trust my personal exploration of this topic will benefit any who puts their toes into this sea of information.

Power comes from the right knowledge shared at the right time. (Evans, D., 2010)

For many years now I have had a fascination with the growth of the internet and the underlying and exponential surge in available information at one's fingertips. While a trip to the library is still as exciting as it was as a child, the ability today to immerse oneself immediately and at almost any time into the deep sea of knowledge that is the World Wide Web, is breathtaking. Piracy and commercial interests aside to be able to listen, read and watch almost anything is an experience unique to our generation and one which demands understanding.

From humankind's earliest days we have craved information to quench our innate curiosity and this web site is simply one person's attempt to understand that drive.

As can be expected from such a topic there is a vast array of research and exposition on human knowledge. We will travel deeper and deeper around many worlds of thought about knowledge and its associated areas of interest (which in fact is quite literally everything!)

From humankind’s earliest days we have craved information to quench our innate curiosity and this wiki site is simply one person’s attempt to understand that drive. Finding solutions a very human (but not exclusively) trait. "If the only tool you have is a hammer, you will treat the whole world as if it were a nail." (Edward de Bono) and to the person with a hammer every problem looks like a nail that needs hammering.

"Path dependency" solutions are determined by solutions that have been tried in the past. Surgeons follow these principles.
