October fun, Intellectual Humility & Open Mic Night!
But I want to take a moment and discuss "Intellectual Humility." I was introduced to this via a post on X/Twitter:
Self-awareness that you may not know everything. It's worth the lesson to question everything you think you know to be true. There's always your side, the other side, & the content without prejudice. Empathy, understanding & evaluation will get you closer to enlightenment, IMO. https://t.co/DeSGBWigpd— AwakenLibrarian (@awakenlibrarian) October 18, 2023
I found it pertinent to how "misinformation, disinformation and mal-information" interact and oppose intellectual humility. It's seems in this time of bombing, war, erasure and book bans, folks are running around like their ideas are transformative and their poo is potpurri!
Simply put, we ALL need to take a step back, listen with the intent to empathize, READ MORE and create constructive dialogue.
Please take a moment to read up on intellectual humanity and feel free to leave a comment, if you'd like to discuss with me.
P.S. I'm happy to report that I've another article on AI: What Will It Take to Fix AI's Bias Problem. Thank you, School of Library Journal, for featuring my content. The article is heavily edited, so if you'd like the original article, with the title that honored the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop, Heeeerrrrrrreeeeee We Go!
