The point of Liquid is to help people generate real understanding. Please have a look at the Real Understanding Manifesto
Most people think learning is memorisation.
Most people think studying is reading to understand what others have said.
Most people feel that their responsibility stops when their professor or manager or boss says “thank you”.
Most people think the world is rigid, that there are simple answers and once you know, you know.
But some people understand that the world is more nuanced, more complicated and fluid.
These people take ownership of their world, their learning and their work.
These people actively chase down information and understanding.
They take pleasure in learning that they are wrong, because that is when they grow.
These people don't stagnate, or grow complacent, they stay current and literate and use ever more powerful methods and tools to improve the quality of their work.
They are the knowledge workers of the 21st century, the technologically empowered ones, the curious, the active, the engaged. These are the people who look at the hard problems and generate new and connected solutions.
They have the written word as their common bond and their liberator. The written word is where knowledge is stored and how it is transmitted. Supported by other media, the written word is what we use to think and communicate so therefore, the richer we can interact with the written word, the richer we think and communicate.
Their work environment is not one of click-icon over-simplicity, but one where their information is active, interactive, where they flow, generate deeper understanding and engagement.
This comes from being freed from the shackles of dumbed down interfaces by employing powerful tools which let's reach farther, question more, because they have more options readily available and they have become more than twice as fast.
Supporting the knowledge workers of the 21st century with liquid text systems is my passion. Working with Doug Engelbart, Vint Cerf, Dave Farber, Ted Nelson, Bruce Horn, Sarah Walton and Ed Leahy is my everyday dream. I hope the Liquid approach will truly augment your abilities to, in the words of Doug Engelbart, “solve urgent complex problems, collectively”.
Please keep in touch and tell me how you get along with Liquid. Let's co-evolve, let's make working ever more liquid, ever more powerful.
