Lets agree to discuss

There is a great TED talk from Noreena Hertz that looks at how we need to use experts differently
–              On TED or on Youtube
The thing I will take away from her talk was the idea of “managed dissent”.  This is a wonderful way of saying that it is ok to disagree, or seek further clarification, even when both parties are not on an equal footing in terms of subject knowledge.

The team over at I Love Charts put a graphic on their site today which would make a wonderful companion graphic for how to ensure the dissent is being managed…even given its lowest common denominator style.

I wonder if having meaningful conversation where there are opposing points of view being put forward, which are being listened to and properly considered is too much to ask of the world…
