Knowledge, Learning, Community

I admit that I was drawn to this article by the stylized map of Paris that accompanies it on the site home page, but is entirely missing from the article itself, which is too bad, because talking about different ways of learning about a city would have been more useful than the content on metalearning we're actually provided. "Metalearning creates a map of the territory we are about to venture into," writes Abhishek Chakraborty. No. This is wrong. Metalearning is the knowledge of how to use maps (and other tools) to learn about the territory.
