Two random events that converged for me today:
- A tweet from Mike Caulfield that reminded me that the people who don’t know are often the ones who believe otherwise:
"Uh, did you realize GASLIGHT was a FILM from the 40s lol"
What do we call this Dunning-Kruger-like pattern where people think the fact they've recently discovered is not widely known when in fact everyone in the Discourse knows it?

- A panel in my new favorite comic slammed the point home:
I’m ending the work year officially today. Taking a week off. But I wanted to write a little reminder to myself that, as I start a new role, and continue in some others, I want to make sure I’m helping people challenge and question what they know, rather than get further rooted inside of it.
I hope you’re up to something like that, too.
