  1. Thanks! IMHO, one of the big changes we have seen in recent years is a shift on how we view knowledge. Instead of knowledge being power and something we hoard, sharing is now power. By sharing with others, I earn their respect and they are more than willing to share as well – a perfect win-win.

  2. Reflections on connection forming: “I’ve encountered lots of sticking points while I sought to integrate these new ideas into what I already comprehend about learning, knowledge, networks, chaos and cognitive neuroscience. I’m thrilled whenever this happens. Getting stuck in the process of cultivating a new comprehension immediately gives me things to question, explore, challenge and rethink. Often it pays off more than adding “new nodes to my conceptual network” – like changing new links and adding more links to previous knowledge.” The point made toward the end of this quote – new nodes amplify, rather than only add to existing knowledge – is important. When we connect ideas, the impact is often more than the connections warrant. Why? A new connection can serve to bridge ideas previously unconnected…it can serve to strengthen connections that had been weak…or to instigate novel/diverse formations between ideas that already have an existing link. A connection amplifies – it is more than its surface effect.
