I feel I am being brainwashed
, but in a healthy
, I-know-this-will-benefit-me-some-day kind of way.
I believe everything2
wants to reshape the world
as reference librarians
! Think about it, in order to write
, you have
to your audience
, its source
, and the best way to disseminate
it. Then you have to think of as many related ideas
as you can and
how they all relate to each other, (cross referencing
Finally, you organize
your information and contribute
it to a database
, (e2). Just like a reference librarian (except for the adding to the database part).
I am still left wonder
ing though, why reference librarians?
This is all good brain exercise
, I admit...all that cross referencing builds up dendrite networks
in our noodles.
But, is it some altruistic desire
to make us more competent
at taking care of ourselves? Are we being prepared for alien enslavement
on a planet
with no system of organization
