Seth Godin, a man presumed to be clued, wants your help in listing : The top 1,000 things to know :
What are the one thousand teachable things that every third grader ought to start learning so she'll know them all before before she graduates from high school?He then scarcely breaks a sweat in doing, well, 20.
I imagine that he hopes the millions of others on the web compelled to make lists will chime in with the other 980. But how? Comments on Seth's site are disabled.
File under: "Wait, wait! Don't tell me."
Seth, you may recall, was on the receiving end of a rocket from Doc Searls concerning Godin's worship at the altar of Adobe PDF's vs. HTML earlier this month. Godin retreated into the cultural redoubt of "Hey, our PDFs are really pretty" in the face of Searls' observation that Godin's fabled great communication skills had failed him on this one.
This looks like another case of "CoolHandLukism" ('What we have here is a failure to communicate'). What gives, Seth? Blogs are only interactive to the extent that "comments" are turned on. They have no other interactivity available. Seems to me that if you ask a question without any means of providing an answer, you're not really asking at all, you're just preening to the converted.Posted by Vanderleun at December 17, 2004 12:25 PM | TrackBack
