That Guy Can't Write!

I used to tell students in middle and high schools that before I went to college I would worry because I could not understand what some books were trying to tell me. I felt dumb. After graduate school I would read a few pages of a book, and if I did not get the meaning, I would put the book down and say, "That guy can't write!"

"Educators," I explained further, "are some of the worst writers in the world. So, if you do not understand a textbook right away, it might not be your fault."

If I got no other value from my college work, I got that very good understanding.

The Internet is changing the way people view the world, both in terms what's out there and what's ... One thing Ochman mentioned in the blog entry was an editorial by Steve Outing of the Poynter Institute For Media Studies and a columnist for Editor and Publisher Online.
