Surveys Are Not Connective Knowledge

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Apr 01, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Steve Covello argues "the collective opinion based on crowdsourced data collection means nothing more than a statistical point of interest... In a 'data happy' world, we are inclined to reflexively respond to patterns and trends in information – the so-called emergence phenomenon mentioned by Stephen Downes and Connectivists in general – rather than the inherent validity of the basis for the data trends" and I respond. Update: Covello responds with a detailed post (always appreciated!).
