For us, that's always been the goal... Collaborative research means:
- Efficient allocation of attention
- Reusing old knowledge in new contexts
- Sorting intersecting sets
- Following dependency graphs
First person you have to be able to collaborate with though is your past self... Hard to see that helping people synthesize and remix book and lecture notes - or their old diary entries - is a simpler prerequisite problem to synthesizing and remixing other people's notes and thoughts. cf Webs Of Thinkers And Thoughts
There is a way in which the whole point of @RoamResearch is to allow everyone in the world to "DO SCIENCE" in every part of their lives... By DO SCIENCE, I mean...
- 1) Make observations
- 2) Sometimes.. conduct experiments to give you new things to observe
- 3) Seek out "Good Explanations" that account for what you've found (and more)
- 4) Test explanations as new observations come in (cf ThinkingInBets)
