Knowledge what is it

Knowledge from Wikipedia:
Knowledge is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. It can refer to the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. It can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); it can be more or less formal or systematic. [1] In philosophy, the study of knowledge is called epistemology; the philosopher Plato famously defined knowledge as “justified true belief.” However, no single agreed upon definition of knowledge exists, though there are numerous theories to explain it.

I had to think about what knowledge means to me. Knowledge is something you know, knowledge should be shared, knowledge needs to be learnt. Some people have more knowledge than others in different situations and experiences.

I believe I have more knowledge in the wireless communication industry than most others because of my years in the industry and my continued education by reading about the new trends.

What does knowledge mean to you?

First day of living below the line.

I decided not to change my daily activities too much with this challenge. The people around the world who have to live on $1.50 a day of food probably don’t have a desk job like me. So I still went to the gym this morning and did a hour of weights and 25 minutes of stationary bike. I weighed in at 193lbs on the first day of this project. My decision to go to the gym this morning was to satisfied my ego ( I don’t want to shrink to much) and equaled the playing field a little with the people who have to do physical work to earn that $1.50.

My choice of food for the next 5 days are rice, beans and eggs which cost a total of $7.20 at Publix.

I started cooking and decide not to use any salt or seasonings because it did not fit into my budget, big mistake everything tastes so plain. I will try to post major changes and my progress here but most of my updates will be on twitter.com/curtismatthews
