Meta knowledge

Let say information is a node. In this information age, let say it is important to know how this piece of information is linked to other more important things, like social value, morals etc.

If we over-emphasis on the knowing the links (know-who, know-where) without really putting any effort in knowing the information itself (know-what and know-how), here is an example of how it may look:

Pointing out "know-who and know-where are important things in this highly connected world" is an important message by itself, however we should not under-estimate or under-mine the need of know-what and know-how in our education system.
