A problem of validating and conflict of interest

2 years, 2 months ago

Our society is currently at an accelerating pase with science, technical innovation and information. Even so strong that every form of knowledge and information is outdated every 7 days. Schools, universities and companies are facing these problems every day due to the fact of applications are based on questionable expertises on current knowledge. To walk in pace, a student or employee needs to get updated and on topic every week to perfectly fit a desired and requested profile. A more significant problem is on how knowledge is applied and accountant for in our information society which is more and more based on a validated online presence. We could even propose that the battle within companies, social pressure is focussed on who knows the latest facts and innovation from some point of view. Based on knowledge, analyses and experience, decisions are made and society brings itself forward. In relation to the believe of decisions we acknowledge the experience and the resumé.

Today we use Google to look for immediate acces for information that can be applied for a problem, our neurologic connections of the well known repetive study and behaviour are making room for more creativity and new ways to think about problems. We could even say we are getting more logical due to our programming nature. We use knowledge and information as the McDonalds, it’s cheap, full and and gets the job done. We are spectators that use what we feel fits our current situation. In fact this is maybe a huge progress in terms on how we need to look at ourselves and how our position in society in relation to online information is shifting. We are getting smarter in terms on how to collect the information/knowledge we need. Our knowledge identity and applience of it, is more and more based on present innovation and how we deal with it.

To quote Charles Darwin “ It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.”

A firm base though is very important, however our accelerating approach on how we find, use and leverage knowledge and information doesn’t walk the same pace as we create it or as we can use it to enrich ourselves.

A big problem can be found in the idea on how a person can leverage it’s knowledge and defend against it in terms of corporate relation. We can learn everything that has been written online about “subject” we can even receite the entire first works of a particular person and use the knowledge to enrich our vocabulary, but we cannot leverage the diversity of what we have learned to help society or ourselves in terms of leverage. We can however pay for validation, and use knowledge and information which is a deccenia old, we bag to ask the question how does this work when everything is being accelerated. We have not created a system where we can capatalize on our collobarated works. The autodidact knows allot, but how to mention it in the CV. Using the concept of creating situations where innovation must be done we could argue that we are creating a problem that is slowly arising.

A person locked in a basement can be the foremost best writer of the world, knows everything about language there is to know however to leverage this he needs to study an additional 4 years while in fact he learned everything online.

The present upcoming of the mega-global-competitor age and the accelerating approach of our information society makes it possible that everything is available to be known for the better or worse of it. However being able to use the knowledge in a day by day situation might work for allot of people for there environment has accepted it, however have a look at the stay at home mom who wishes to join the world again having barely money to get around. Does she need to pay to get validated on her knowledge which is free accesibale online or is it in our societies best interest to play with this perception of validation and create a system just for her.

Do we perceive acquired riches to be valued or does the enrichment of ones knowledge and the position within society and corporates have a value aswell.

Is there a way we can create a system where the individual identity is rewarded for learning and newly acquired insights while maintaining a high value principle of leverage of such knowledge. Can we make it so that the validation either by receiving or giving out has value that in itself can be capatlized for the growth of the individual in a competetive world, so the user can make use of it’s internet time and use to “swing” the new job offer with some extra credentials?

@spiraltouch, I think a lot of people think basically the same thing. Here is one little piece that might help.

http://www.coursera.com

Its an awesome Idea. Some University professors created it for the same reasons you are talking about. Its 100% free, online, for anyone in the world. They are Universality grade online courses from 24ish American Universities, including Princeton, Berkeley, Stanford and many others. All the Professors volunteer their time, and don’t get paid for it from what i understand. You wouldn’t get a diploma; but most classes give you a certificate saying you took X class from Y professor at Z school. And some Colleges are allowing Coursera courses to count as actual credit.

I hope that helps!

@ironmidget, See what you are saying, I did look at a variety of those and think the concept of thinking is certainly a way to go.

However I’m more thinking of a way that all information can be valued and used.. For everything that has been written and will be written has some kind of knowledge and only the people / the cloud if you will can validate the use of it. (i’m working towards something though) Bassically human nature has the tendency to devide and categorize everything, so in a way we can make a knowledge exchange and actually own a variable % of the assets of marketing /product introduction… (elaborate on this further)

(some more info on the concept I’m working.. in parts)

The acceleration of the information will continue decades to come, the expectation however that this can be leverages in the same speed is a major discussionm point. Also described as the turning point in human civilisation will the function of men and the use of his mind be more a focus point than ever. Specialities and plumbers will always excist but the future employee needs a wider approach, not now but in years to come. We can derrive this vision when we look at our childeren. They have a wider interest and have quick acces to see if they like it more. We look forward to a more flexible human being, where the creativity and programming nature will be guiding the top of the pyramide.
Further more, in socities eyes we see that a certain amount of prestige is desirable, this can be related in terms of possesions or a more social interaction. We cannot denie our human nature that we need this, we thrive to excel but we need to be validated and valued. We all see we can’t all have all the money in the world, it is unfair but it’s the way it is. However besides the drive of value, get value and be more flexible there is the desire to be valued on insights, knowledge and just plain simple experience. Without the whish to devide we eventually will stagnate and perish off. Where current perception of a certain value is derrived from financiel freedom, we see it’s limits and therefore propose to devide the valua principle into a second nature and vision to stimulate the growth in personal knowledge.
To create a direction we need focus and we need to look at a sytematic approach on how humans are able to leverage the online information in there own beneficial way of live. Where the options to participate in the economy are the responsabilities of the government and companies, investments and grants, is the learning, creation and validation eventually a responisbility of societies will to innovate.
