Met Mr. Sajid Khan at Mumbai. Nice to meet people, whom we came across through internet, personally and shake hands with them. Digital communications made more interaction possible among the people on a global basis. And people are also responding in the right way to develop more contacts and relations.
We are approaching the last day. We can not interact on Knol anymore. Of course once or twice, I shall post more in this forum. I hope most of the active authors migrated their content. But still there is lot of content that is not migrated. There is time till 1 October 2012 to migrate the content.
As an author who posted around 6000 items, and also as I decided to move to Blogger, I could migrate so far around 1500 knols through redirects. I am able to get around two-thirds of page views in my new location. May be as I post more items by 1 October, my page views will improve. We did face some inconveniences on Knol and we are a part of the abandoned project also. But still personally, this experience has benefited me on the overall. I thank all members of the Knol project. Angry discussions related to aspects or quantity, quality and performance are OK. They made us think and modify our activities and improve. Let us be friends wherever we meet online or offline. Best wishes to all.
I request all Knol authors to make effort to inform others their new location through this forum, Google+ or Twitter or any other means. My main blogs that are having migrated knols are:
It is possible to have a list of the 700,000+ Knols posted.
What will be its use? I do not know. But may be I can see all the knols that I posted date wise and give the new links. If some knol authors want to they can also give the links if I can post the total database. But it will take a long long time. I spent around 3 to 4 hours today to post around 6 lists.
Psychologists pretty much agree it involves an integration of knowledge, experience, and deep understanding that incorporates tolerance for the uncertainties of life as well as its ups and downs. There's an awareness of how things play out over time, and it confers a sense of balance.
Wise people generally share an optimism that life's problems can be solved and experience a certain amount of calm in facing difficult decisions.
This entry will provide a general overview, and analysis of, some dominant views on the topic of wisdom. It will cover several versions of four general approaches to understanding what is wisdom: (1) wisdom as epistemic humility, (2) wisdom as epistemic accuracy, (3) wisdom as knowledge, and (4) wisdom as knowledge and action.
A. W. Tozer and J. I. Packer have defined wisdom as follows:
“In the Holy Scriptures wisdom, when used of God and good men, always carries a strong moral connotation. It is conceived as being pure, loving, and good.… Wisdom, among other things, is the ability to devise perfect ends and to achieve those ends by the most perfect means. It sees the end from the beginning, so there can be no need to guess or conjecture. Wisdom sees everything in focus, each in proper relation to all, and is thus able to work toward predestined goals with flawless precision.”
