Knowledge, Learning, Community
Clark Quinn begins a post, "Aaron Silvers wrote a post tying together the non-linear nature of cyberspace with the essentially linear nature of our past." And it occurs to me, my past is not linear. Oh sure, it may have occurred linearly but it now exists only in my mind, and in a most non-linear format. It's more like this. And, of course, my learning is in no-linear form as well. Learning isn't a narrative, it isn't a hierarchy, it isn't (except in some very coarse sense) cumulative. (p.s. I find the typeface on Quinn's blog very hard to read - is it just me?)
