Week 4: concept map iteration 3

I still have trouble with the notion that knowledge exists only in connections. I accept that knowledge is only observable in connected states, and I think I can accept that learning as an act involves connection and "messaging" (regardless of whether the meaning is inherent or interpreted from the message). ... 2011-01-26T18:09:24 [Comment]
