Controlled naturalness

This is how I believe we should behave on the Net, with a controlled naturalness.

The Internet is still ruled by anarchy, and hopefully it will last for a long time, but, just as we do not go out in the street in our underwear, we should not be on the Net in any way.

For me, the best state to blog in is obviousness, and it means that you see a reasoning as obvious so you can go out and tell it, and that doesn't mean it's obvious to others.

It is after posting on your blog that you realize if it was obvious, if it wasn't, or if you were wrong. On the Internet, arrogance is not nice, but it is not about appearing as a person without criteria or deliberately shy. Think that you are writing your resume, Google will be storing it, and believe me, Google's cache is unfathomable, there has never been a librarian like him, take advantage of it.

It's about showing yourself as you are, don't pretend, you don't need to fear the results of a controlled exhibitionism, sure you have things to tell, sure you help people with it, first of all yourself when you reread those truisms and you realize that they were not such truisms at all. Your blog evolves with you; those are the rules, but respect the forms or you will probably end up regretting having uploaded one. very nice photo taken among friends at 2:30 on any given Saturday.

A trick, mature a new entry for days, weeks and even months, then it's a no-brainer, it's ready to be published. The occurrence that appears suddenly you can write it, yes, but give it 24 hours before you press the publishIt is also valid to use a notebook and write with a pen, yes, pens still work in the XXI Century, for clean it up in the blog.

  1. The first thing is to know yourself, and from there determine how you behave online. For example, I'm happy being transparent, and that's why I say and do whatever I want on the net. But not everyone feels comfortable having photos of their parties on Flickr, available to anyone, just as not everyone feels comfortable on a nude beach.

    I totally agree about behaving the way you are, but I also strongly believe in the need for more respect for people's public privacy. If I had to hire someone, I would Google their name, and I would look at their LinkedIn profile, and even their photos on Flickr, or wherever, but I would not take into account that information taken from their "private part", no matter how public it was on the net. I know that public privacy is a strange concept, but we'll get there in no time 😉.

  2. Transparency is the key to compete, to raise your head from the heap and say "here I am"; but, as you say, you have to know yourself first, have intellectual humility and the will to compete.
