Hello Network(ed) Thinkers,
Weeks pass by like clouds on a windy day, and topics start to stick like balls of spaghetti thrown on the wall. I’ve found convergence in the force. After the impulse of learning out loud about data, information, knowledge, and wisdom, I’ve checked my braindump with more intentional research on the same topic. It was helpful and fun. The loci argumentorum inspired my first investigation into why we are capturing knowledge, and they also led me to explore what I am capturing. I’ve made I was not acting as a good systems thinker by isolating the two perspectives. Still, I’ve reconciled them by analyzing the process of capturing a digital flow-chart image.
I see a thread in my explorations and connections between each adventure. I feel I am charting a known territory while looking at it with my eyes through different lenses. I am quite satisfied with the idea of filling in the blanks in a map to be explored. And I feel even more stimulated by the idea of leaving traces and spaces to connect observations into more significant knowledge objects.
Thanks for your attention.
And don’t forget, there are also minimal, abstract, and sometimes surreal illustrations.

Systems Thinking emerges from considering the relationships and the interactions between all components of the observed system.
A note captured is usually something that will need further processing, and it’s seldom something we could use as it is.
Capturing data, information, and knowledge depends on your vision and your character.
By giving context to raw data, you obtain information. Knowledge is information connected. Wisdom is knowledge applied to decision-making.
I’m doing a crazy experiment. Instead of researching and reporting, I will write down what I know about data, information, knowledge, and wisdom.
Who are you, Max?
