Bloggers: Beware ....

Beware, fellow bloggers.

You, as bloggers, are free to choose your path. Free to seek your fame. Yet, how is the public held?

At each turn, we are promised "this is the new wave" and "the new future." Does the population need a reminder of the disdain it is held?

For at your hands are the tools which can inspire the souls of nations. Which can touch the heart. Inspire minds. And pierce the souls of those wanting and in need of much they cannot afford themselves.

As you embark on this voyage of blogging, know that although there are many who will support you, that a small error will be examined as if if were the fatal error; that your simple unintended oversight will be paraded as evidence that you have failed to meet an arbitrary standard that they do not meet themselves.

Pray, might we be guided by the divine wisdom of the world that would share what "standards" and "ethics" doth the public conform.

Oh, such are the musings of those who have sworn themselves to act on the public's behalf to create new tools for us to communicate.

They agree there are many politics. Agreeing at every turn there is a great battle. For the hearts and minds of America.

But this battle is also about the future. For the battle they wage is not simply politics. It is one marked by the desire to flash favor before the venture capitalists. The true people they desire to impress.

Yet, would the venture capitalist not also know to come before the grand wizard as if they were the helpless knave? To see how their funding was actually put to use; to examine in great detail the intricacies of the maze to which these funds were put?

No matter. For we know the answer. That the gift of freedom and 'assistance' is contingent upon bowing down to that "special class" that hopes to hold the public to a standard that they, themselves, cannot meet.

Know who you seek assistance from. There are many other options.

To this end. it is clear. No allegiance should be given. No respect earned. It is only by creating a disastrous maze, that they then win "favor" by guiding you through that which need never have been entered.

They are no better than the lawyers who craft ridiculous laws, only to let the public hang in the wind when they suffer that fateful end--for having trusted a "special class" that actually held them in contempt.

The international community sees the true form. When high paid developers with public acclaim and standing are unable to meet and discuss issues. To resolve these matters. To go round and round.

To what end? How long will these funding streams continue? They hope for eternity.

Yet, how do developers treat users? Apparently, despite the clearly promulgated standards which developers cannot agree, they hold the public with disdain and contempt.

It would be useful if the public were to ask what standards the developers require the public to meet.

Then ask, why is the "community" not first demonstrating, in house, an ability to meet that standard?

We have no answer. Only excuses. Handwaving.

Small errors. Yet, we see the true side of the developers.

Their gifts of time are contingent upon continued support for that which cannot agree. Nor resolve problems across the industry.

The politics of the developers has a material impact on how they "freely" choose to extent "assistance."

We can shift these funds to those who treat the customer with the respect they deserve, and provide products and services that work.

A grave error. When those who dance before the fire. In hopes of entertaining.

When the jovial audience fails to realize who is on stage.

You want respect? Have the decency to meet the standards of your own ilk before you banter of standards and ethics to which those, the true source of your funding, are subjected.

We have seen enough.

Hoc voluerunt.
