The exploration of #Openness

What’s a Twessay? I guess it can be describes as a twitter essay, yes that’s right a essay that contains only 140 characters. It’s difficult, to say the least, when you’re asked to describe a concept as wide as openness in just 140 characters. But then again it’s also difficult to critically analyse just 140 charters in 500 words, never the less that was the task assigned to us and the battle that we all must face.

My tweet was: #Openness is no barriers when communicating or interacting with others it allows us to be criticised without judgement #DHUCCtwessay

To be honest it doesn’t fully express what I believe to be ‘Openness’ but it’s the best I could do with a limited space. To be open we would have no restrictions or judgement on opinions. If we have this ‘Openness’ in our society it will allow for new ideas to formulate. We only learn from others and by creating an open environment we allow each other to learn from our previous mistakes. A person’s tweet that really caught this concept was Deirdre Brady’s:

Openness allows people to gain opinions, ideas, and knowledge from info which otherwise would be restricted, inspiring creativity #DHUCCTwessay

I love the way she said ‘Inspiring Creativity’ It explains perfectly what an open environment would lead to, a whirlpool of creativity with new ideas bouncing off each other. We are all influenced by each other whether it’s a conscience thing or not that’s why openness would benefit us all. We are all born into the world the same way so we should not be discriminated when it comes so how much knowledge we should be allowed access. Another classmate that tapped into this idea was Jack Roche, Jack said:

#Openness should be a right for all members of the public People shouldn’t be discriminated against having access 2 knowledge #DhUccTwessay

Without digital humanity activists like Moravec and Swartz we would have no one paving the way for openness on the internet or otherwise, through movements like some type of last stand against the moral injustice like a guerrilla manifesto. These people fight for openness so we can all develop our ideas freely and we could bounce off each other’s creativity so we might as well take advantage of this opportunity that we have been given
