Curva de aprendizaje

Posted: 28/09/2010 in Un poco de todo

y esquiva perfeccion:

Una persona brillante debería ser capaz de dominar cualquier disciplina en tres años, enteniendo «dominar» por estar al nivel del percentil 90. Para ser un auténtico maestro en algo, por decirlo de algún modo, tendría que dedicar el resto de su vida al otro 10 por ciento. La forma de tener una vida interesante es mantenerse en la zona más inclinada de esa curva de aprendizaje.

Los estudios de psicología social son como los chicles. Hay que masticarlos y saborearlos alegremente, pero nunca hay que tragárselos del todo.

Sound advice:
Technology will change faster than we can teach it. My son studied the popular programming language C++ in his home-school year; that knowledge could be economically useless soon. The accelerating pace of technology means his eventual adult career does not exist yet. Of course it won’t be taught in school. But technological smartness can be. Here is the kind of literacy that we tried to impart:

• Every new technology will bite back. The more powerful its gifts, the more powerfully it can be abused. Look for its costs.

• Technologies improve so fast you should postpone getting anything you need until the last second. Get comfortable with the fact that anything you buy is already obsolete.

• Before you can master a device, program or invention, it will be superseded; you will always be a beginner. Get good at it.

• Be suspicious of any technology that requires walls. If you can fix it, modify it or hack it yourself, that is a good sign.

• The proper response to a stupid technology is to make a better one, just as the proper response to a stupid idea is not to outlaw it but to replace it with a better idea.

• Every technology is biased by its embedded defaults: what does it assume?

• Nobody has any idea of what a new invention will really be good for. The crucial question is, what happens when everyone has one?

• The older the technology, the more likely it will continue to be useful.

• Find the minimum amount of technology that will maximize your options.
