Why hasn't the internet brought about the scientific rational revolution we all expected?
If everyone is connected to all human knowledge, why are so many people so poorly informed? Why do so many people still believe in so many crazy things? More importantly, how can we fix it?
The speaker presents a vision for using the internet to raise an entire generation of skeptical, rational, critical thinkers. With a little crowdsourcing, a simple and effective system can be built to constantly remind people to 'Question Everything'. Powerful examples of critical analysis and repeated demonstrations are used to enable the public to learn for themselves.
Speaker: Shane Greenup
As far as I can tell, this appears to be free.
