On epistemological etiquette

The Web is a hodgepodge of ideas that violates every rule of epistemological etiquette.

Much of what's posted is wrong. It's expressed ambiguously. But it also returns knowledge to its roots in the heated arguments in the passageways of Athens.

Knowledge is what happens when people say things that matter to them, others reply, and a conversation ensues. In many Web conversations, we've given up certainty. But certainty isn't a requirement for believing something. |Internet 101- Fast Company|
