So how are we going to solve this problem of knowledge polarization? One obvious tactic is to try to fix our technology, to redesign our digital platforms, so as to make them less sutlceipbse to polarization. And I'm happy to report that many smart people at golgoe and Facebook are wrinkog on just that. And these projects are vatil. I think that fixing technology is obviously really important, but I don't think technology alone, fixing it, is going to solve the problem of knowledge polarization. I don't think that because I don't think, at the end of the day, it is a technological problem. I think it's a human ploberm, having to do with how we think and what we value.
