The Lesser Known Revolutions that Created the Modern World

Every time you use a use a computer or smartphone, drive a car, use a navigation system or shop at Wal-mart, you are in a very real sense, believing in ideas that defy common sense.
Sharrock's insight:

from the article: "in 1931 Kurt Gödel and his incompleteness theorems, which showed conclusively that every system will eventually result in a statement that is both true and not true by the rules of the system.  Logic, as an absolute concept, was dead. There was no fixing the system because systems themselves are inherently broken."

 

This "broken" system idea is something I will have to keep pursuing. In James Gleick's book The Information, it seemed that this same topic was mentioned in terms of math systems. But the idea that logic, as an absolute concept, was dead, seems to be making a statement that systems are subjective and always incomplete. I want to know more, but will probably need repeated explanations and examples from various experts to approach understanding it.

 

The other "lesser known revolutions" seem to be pretty clear to me.

A common narrative in many “open” development projects goes along the lines of “provide access to data/information –> some magic occurs –> we see positive change.” In essence, because of the newness of this field, we only know what we THINK happens, we don’t know what REALLY happens because there is a paucity of documentation and evidence.

 

It’s problematic that we often use the terms data, information, and knowledge interchangeably, because:

Data is NOT knowledge.

Data is NOT information.

Information is NOT knowledge.

Knowledge IS what you know. It’s the result of information you’ve consumed, your education, your culture, beliefs, religion, experience – it’s intertwined with the society within which you live.

It's so obvious. The main values of openness are our open minds and thoughts.
