I am always amazed at the knowledge and expertise of newsletter readers. A case in point is the article I published yesterday on "The Impact of Touch." I wrote, "Remember Spock trying to use the ancient computer in an episode of Star Trek?"
Within hours, probably a half dozen newsletter readers wrote to point out that the Star Trek character who attempted to use the "ancient" computer was Scotty, not Spock. I am in awe of the detailed knowledge of newsletter readers. I would not have believed this newsletter would attract so many Trekkies.
The same is true for almost any other topic imaginable. Whether it is about genealogy or Star Trek or nuclear physics or growing begonias, we do have experts on most every conceivable topic here who are willing to share their expertise.
Not everyone is an expert on every topic and I have seen people post inaccurate information here. When that happens, several more people usually step in to offer corrections.
One thing that fascinates me about the Internet is the accurate knowledge you can obtain. It is somewhat like having a personal tutor available on call. Not everything published on the web is accurate but, if message boards and comments sections are available, corrected information usually is posted within hours after anything erroneous is published.
My suggestion? Read the articles and then read the follow-on comments.
My thanks to everyone who offers corrections and suggestions on this newsletter site.
