[[dream project]] is a [[polymath club]]:
- cares about [[polymathy studies]] more than about the credentials of being a polymath. there is no end goal; it is an activity, a work in progress.
- current society forces you to stay in a track of specialization.
- "polymaths in progress": a manifesto for this attitude.
- polymaths helping each other with an overlapping
- topic: amateurism, can it sometimes be disrepect towards a discipline?
- [[polymathy]] is a [[state of being]]. In that state, there is only a state of connection.
- [[expert]] == a [[miner]]
- [[polymath]] == [[depth]] + [[breadth]] + [[integration]]. A polymath pursues a mission: there are no disciplines, there are other connections. This is a spectrum, though.
- social networks are user content plus an algorithm
- twitter: more than one network. many.
- norman: "when I go into twitter, I want to be <blank>". I have an intention.
- but then I might get triggered by something. the algorithm seems to work 70% well, sometimes I also do not respect my own intentions.
- increasing polarization -> algorithms
