Knowledge Itself Is No Longer Power

| Comments

A student I once worked with (David Vargas Racero) recently posted the online status:

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”

To which my response was:

“Intelligence in the 21st Century is not knowledge itself, but the ability to know how to obtain knowledge at short notice. Where once it was said ‘Knowledge is Power’ the less catchy phrase should now be ‘Navigation of knowledge is power’.”

My attempt at philosophy for today.
