Scaling Expertise with Dr. Hollis Robbins
Dean Hollis Robbins wears many hats: Administrator, teacher, scholar of black sonnets... but she's also an expert on expertise itself. Today's conversation is about frameworks for organizing knowledge. Dr. Robbins argues that our modern society suffers from mismanaged "self-secretarying" - most of us receive no formal training in how to process & sort the huge amounts of information that we have to process every day. She also straddles the line between higher education and tech. Her involvement in both communities helps her understand how these two different worlds might both be able to learn from each other. This interdisciplinary background of hers made this conversation a fascinating examination of the interplay between breadth and depth.
