1. The personal opinions and ideas expressed at this site are those that the author feels are “good enough to criticize.” Please do so.
2. None of the ideas expressed here are wholly original. The author will make every attempt to give credit to those who have helped form his ideas. (Case in point: The “good enough to criticize” phrase above comes from Alan November.)
3. The author reserves the right to change his mind about any of these ideas based on further reading of trusted sources or personal experiences.
4. The author has no real certainty that any of the ideas expressed here hold water. He’s hoping you’ll help him figure that out.
5. Therefore, the author suggests the ideas expressed here should be taken with a huge grain of salt.
6. Among the questions the author struggles with are:
7. The author freely acknowledges that the extent to which he has embraced and integrated these technologies into his life may signal some dysfunction and may totally cloud his perspective. The author feels the quote “To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail” is worth remembering here. (See the comments to this post for the source of this thinking.)
8. The author neither expects or suggests that readers should embrace or integrate these ideas or technologies into their lives to the extent that he has. In fact, he would strongly advise against it.
9. The author does expect, however, to continue to read, write and learn every day, and hopes that in some way the ideas and technologies discussed here will move others to do the same.
