According to Plato, this is Socrates response to the claim by the Oracle of Delphi that ‘no human is wiser’ than he. “I know one thing, that I know nothing.” Rather than being Socrates denial of his knowledge, this was a claim that, to understand what one lacks is a true test of wisdom. This seems to have been the tack in the
senate of late, whose coverage was consistently and frustratingly interjected with phrases such as "I'm not a nerd" or "I'm no tech expert, but they tell me..." US
The problem is that the issue in hand in the senate at the moment may very well dictate and shape the future of what is currently the single biggest technological advance connecting human beings the world over, the internet.
