Making a point

One of the great things about the Internet is that it connects people of like minds. For example, if you believe that the sky is purple and you look hard enough, you will find others who believe as you do. With a minimal amount of work, you will find research papers and articles supporting your view and with a BLOG linked to all of your favorite social media sites, you can start a purple sky movement.

Universities have been down playing information from the Internet and encouraging students to find information from reliable sources with good reason. It seems that many of the rest of us who went to school before the Internet age, get sucked into the Internet’s ability to provide downloadable studies, pictures, testimonials and personal accounts that support our “Position du jour”.

When I receive emails form the purple sky movement (and I will), they will come with attached links, clips and PDF documents proving that I have been wrong my entire life. You think I’m kidding, but similar things have happened to me recently.

So what will I say when the emails start pouring in? I will mark those emails as junk and let apple make them silently disappear.

So what the $&^$& are you jabbering about Fred?

  • If you want to comment on a topic, please insure that you have credible sources.
  • You don’t have to be an expert in that field, but try to make a realistic point.
  • Make sure that your view of the situation is not clouded by personal emotions or experiences.
  • If you have something new to say, say it. If you don’t, wait until you do.

Have a good weekend everyone, more next week. May you all have blue skies [grin]
