Discussion: Stephen Downes

I had a fairly long (and enjoyable, I might add) discussion/interview with Stephen Downes…partly related to his article on connective knowledge, and partly all over the place (as my conversations with Stephen tend to be). I’ve uploaded the audio file from our conversation (68 mb – it may take a while to download). We started by discussing the need for a new epistemology…explored artificial intelligence, democracy, wikipedia, new models of societal organization, knowledge as a product/process, the nature of learning today, neuroscientific view of cognition, and other light breezy subjects :) .
