    [Learning] look for disconfirming data
    Kahane closed by noting that “almost everything I’ve learned is through the disciplined examination of my experience” as well as an approach of “looking for disconfirming data, as Charles Darwin did”. Adam Kahane hosted a webcast this week to discuss his new book, Collaborating with the Enemy. I thought his first book, Solving Tough Problems , was an excellent read so I attended. What follows are from my notes. The quotes are as I wrote them down and may not be Kahane’s exact words.

The new learning platform [the city?] would offer learning all over, all the time, in a wide variety of settings, from a wide range of people. The city becomes more than a learning organization.

    Been thinking about how to generate meaningful learning in optimal (read: concise but effective) ways. This means that you need people in the learning loop; totally asynchronous isn’t going to work to develop rich capabilities. I’m trying to figure out ways to approximate that with as little human intervention as possible because pragmatically we have more learning to achieve than we have resources to achieve that (at least until we get our priorities right ;).

    This requires time and effort to learn. But when the problem is gone, there is little incentive to learn about the implications and complexities that created the problem. If we learn a bit we may become little exemplars of the Dunning-Kruger effect. If we continue to learn we can get more frustrated and perhaps cynical. It’s easy to say that people have to take responsibility for their learning, but not everyone had the luxury of learning how to program.
