One Expert, Two Experts, Three...


With one expert you get your messiah. They named a street after that guy, One Way.

With two experts you get a discussion, also called an argument.

With three or more experts you get the beginnings of transparency.

With Mr. Google and his Internet, we have more knowledge than we need.

Education used to be about getting enough knowledge. Now education is about determining the useful knowledge out of all the knowledge available.

My role with my advisers is making sure they recommend what I really want, which takes more effort than I expect. I generally have good advisers. I am trying harder now to make sure they understand the things I understand about my problem before they create a solution.

How are you using your experts?

I was shocked when a friend told me he received 1300 emails per day - how do you read (process) all of them, I asked? "Brute Force!"

We are attacked daily with an abundance of information: some good, some wrong, some relevant to us, much that is junk.

In years gone by, we would hit the library to search for information, and assess what we found for truth and usefulness. Today we filter information, and assess for truth and usefulness.

Takes skill to work with high volumes, but understanding is deeper from a wider supply of information to assess.

Thanks for the information (useful and true).
