Frankly, I’ve never thought about that much. But Johnny gave it some thought, (in german) and easily impressionable person that I am, I started to think too.
I instinctively tried to obey some sort of unwritten set of rules ever since I started to communicate online. Back then, the buzzword was netiquette, but it meant the same. The gist is that I’m aware that nearly instantaneous communications with complete strangers are prone to misunderstandings. I try to avoid these, so I’m doing my best to stay polite, and understandable. Sometimes, this extends to offline communications too, which probably make me look like a dolt, but that’s the price I pay…
As I’m in the latter half of a two-week vacation, I’ve had a lot of time to do stuff I normally don’t do.
For instance, I’ve been playing squirrel in Bad Bevensen, finally managed to watch at least the Pilot of Firefly, as well as that remake of Battlestar Galactica , got myself a bicycle after years of walking and driving a car (Thanks Dad !), read a few books (Stainless Steel Rat, and Tod und Teufel, and a lot of „etc. etc.“.
What I did not manage to do was to expand Catara in the way I wanted, but that I can do safely after the vacation I guess.
Oh, and I started to read some more blogs of others, so here’s a late trackback for DLG :)
Now, I bet none of you is actually burning to know what I thought of these books and TV stuff, so I’ll put that behind the following link :)
