New York Times: Help! I’m Stuck in a Knowledge Bubble and I Need to Get Out.

New York Times: Help! I’m Stuck in a Knowledge Bubble and I Need to Get Out.. “I write this newsletter for The New York Times, which means that I write this for you, the subscribers. Those of you who are reading this probably know a lot about American politics, and are steeped in a particular East Coast-centric culture. I’m going to assume that some of you might know less about, say, the inner workings of a call-in radio show that focuses on college football teams in the Southeast. Knowledge bubbles become problematic and even dangerous when we pretend as if they don’t exist or don’t matter. Because what we don’t know — about the lives of our neighbors and fellow citizens and why they think the way they do — is almost as important as what we do know.” One thing ResearchBuzz is good for, over and over, all day every day, is teaching me that I don’t know anything.
