An idea worth spreading

About Searching Engines and how to have the best idea at the right time : we hear of Google, Yahoo as leaders of searching engines on the web. They are based on some algorithms like counting how many links send people to your website. But here it is difficult for original ideas to spread freely : since there is not a lot of links to this ideas, they can die in a total indifference ... When i am thinking to something and type it in google for instance,it gives me a lot of unrelated content and the relations between concepts, ideas are not shown. It works like that everywhere. But why shouldn't we search by "ideas" and obtain some mind mapping in return or a graph with edges and vertex. Vertex would be ideas, concepts and edges representing relations/ importance of synergies, oppositions between ideas/concept. This way we could have some different point of views than ours about an idea, a word

I'm passionate about

How to have the best idea at the right time !

Should degrees have "patches"?
" The reason you pay a government entity thousands of dollars ... " I guess here is the difference : in France you almost pay nothing for your education. School comes from greek "skolè" that means free time, idleness. It is not meant to serve only economical purposes. Not all people have the luck to have a good environnement to learn critical judgement and enjoy reading at 12. Poor people or children having bad atmosphere at home for instance would not make it to degrees easily. The school system here is a way to guarantee that everyone has its chances not to reproduce an elit of rich. It has its flaws and its costs though.

Should degrees have "patches"?
This idea of patch should be considered carefully since a lot of degrees are not about being up to date but rather having a certain disposition of the mind that allows to deal with whatever new knowledge is needed in your field. A great example is computer sciences : what matter the most is your ability to adapt and to think, not what technology or programmation language you ended to learn. In another words : is the goal of a degree solely to get you skills that the job markets is looking for or is also a time to mature and improve oneself thinking and critical judgement abilities ? If people want to know which technologies you are an expert, what are your fields of expertise, they can look at your previous missions on your resume and even give a call.

Would you rather be an information producer, propagator, or consumer?
There is something quite radical about considering that we are passing only information. When our brain receives data, it will simplify it by - deleting : some of the information received is forgotten, considered as not important and thus discarded. - distortion : some of the information received is modified in order to stick to a more familiar model we know of. - generalization : some properties of a part of the information is extended to some other or all the pieces of the data. When it comes to manipulating information, our first reflex is to simplify it in a way that it is easier to manipulate for us and us only. Other people might simplify it in other ways. The map is not the reality. Simplified information is faster to proceed with for our brains and easier to link to the collection of data our brains already know about. We learn new things by linking them to what we already know or have experienced. Information has no interest if we cannot learn from this, thus linking is essential. Context is often more important than raw information. Would people rather be producer, propagator or consumer ? I would say that people will just answer to the data they receive in their own personal way : - producing information if they need something that they don't know of already - propagating if they think the idea is worth spreading and added value to their understanding of the world or their lives for example though it might be for social proof purpose. - consuming so people can think of the next move in their lives be it adding some salt to their food or applying for a job. We all do the three things and choose what to do at the moment given our personal context and experience.
