Organized Skepticism: The idea of approaching the truth through critical dialogue.

Again, from “The Hacker Ethic.” Also known as the Socratic method for you philosophy types. I see it happen repeatedly on the internet. It happens at my work place in amazing moments. A group of people, armed with knowledge, resources, and tools tackle a problem or an idea. The most productive sessions involve heated debate by passionate people with diverse backgrounds. The devils advocate should be invited, along with Mr. Murphey. Ensure open minds and reserve judgment. Follow through. Be willing to research further, and revise proposed solutions later.
