This portion of Mark's interesting post has me asking, matters for what? And
also suggesting for consideration that it might be desirable to break out of
the knowledge paradigm more completely. How to find answers still has the
product as a goal, to my reading. Maybe what matters for learning and
development is learning how to learn, learning that we learn, and learning
to create environments in which it's possible to learn that!
