become the
"finished lumber"
of traditional academic products
yield "byproducts" of inquiry as useful as traditional "finished lumber"
Today, 99% of raw forestry materials are put to use.
"In the 1800s, as much as 35% of the wood from a redwood tree was left in the forest as unusable branches, stumps, chips, and shattered trunks…. Another 30% of the tree was often wasted at the mill in the form of sawdust and scraps. Consequently, sometimes only about a third of the cut wood actually became usable lumber”
slash
residue
mill waste
chips
stumps
knowledge as a product
ASSUMPTIONS:
Serious inquiry is conducted in near isolation
Only finished knowledge is worth sharing
The marketplace of ideas has a high barrier to entry
false starts
dead ends
rough drafts
bad data
trashed hypotheses
unreliable sources
off topic interests
anecdotal evidence
undocumented ideas
informal brainstorming
personal experience
intellectual doubts
half read books
random experiences
what was I thinking?
field notes
abandoned experiments
inappropriate methods
flashes of irrelevant brilliance
of scholarly inquiry 1.0
of inquiry 1.0
new media
the byproducts of inquiry 1.0
are the PRODUCTS of inquiry 2.0
