What did I learn today?

    What I learned today was something that was quite interesting to me. I learned that High School was a way to get us to follow rules. I learned that we never really learned anything in high school, what we did do is memorize and repeat information. The main reason for this was to create model citizens that know how to follow rules and orders. We never really thought about the information we took in or what the purpose of learning the idea was. The only importance or value that information had to us was that we needed to know it for the test. All we did through high school is retain enough information to pass the test and then forget that information immediately.

What are our responsibilities to each other when we blog?

In our world today communicating with people has never been easier. We are able to talk with anyone, anytime, and anywhere. We are able to post our ideas on the internet which allows anyone to see what we believe or think on a certain issue or topic at anytime. This raises the question of whether or not we have responsibilities when we blog or when we post on the internet.
I think the main responsibility that we all posses is that of respecting the person on the other computer. It's easy to forget that when you type messages and responses to other post you are writing that response to a person who has a certain belief or feeling towards an idea, after all blogging is a form of expressing oneself. The same goes for when we receive messages or comments on blogs.  We have to take in to consideration that not every one has the same opinion as us and sometimes people have disagreements. 
Blogs are a great way to express your feelings or ideas on a wide range of topics, and then share that expression with the world. People are going to disagree with you just as much as you will disagree with them. The only responsibility that we have is to respect each other disagreements.
