Week #3 (for me), week I-don’t-know for everyone else, and here are the questions:
When was the last time you face palmed? I seem to recall a day when I was training when I didn’t exactly face-palm, but when I had a class where everything seemed to go wrong and several members of the class were there apparently to argue with me. After a particularly testy exchange, I put my head down and said “oy gevalt”. One of my co-workers, who was taking the class and who is very Jewish, complimented me: “You do that very well.” Cheered me up, anyway.
When is censorship warranted? Ever? Aside from the obvious “yelling ‘fire!’ in a crowded theater,” I can’t think of a reason to impose censorship on anyone. I think there are any number of times when self-censorship is appropriate and to be encouraged. Fifty years ago, that was called “growing up,” which should also be encouraged.
If there were commandments for the modern day world, what should (could, would) some of them be? Get creative! The ones that come immediately to mind are Get Over It and Grow Up.
What did you Google last? It’s been several years since I’ve used Google, largely because of privacy concerns and certain business practices they have adopted that I don’t think should be encouraged, and I’ll leave it at that. I much prefer DuckDuckGo and set my browsers to default to it. It advertises itself as “The Search Engine That Doesn’t Track You,” if that explains it. Anyway, the last thing that I remember DuckDuckGoing is how to migrate from Evernote to OneNote. Just so you know, the migration doesn’t work very well, and I’ve abandoned that little project.
As I say on Sundays at the end of my “The Week That Was” posts, see you in the funny papers!
