Embrace the Web - Dont Fight it.

After reading many many posts on this forum over the last few years something has come to my attention recently.
There are alot of people who try and fight change, they tray and stick with old ideas and try and stick with what they know. When this doesnt go the way they want they come here and ask for advice on how to take action on new technology.

Threre was a post here recently over a webmaster ranking high on keywords and articles which they felt were original content. The author was then on a rampage to try and stop anyone copying these articles and gaining credit and leverage and rankings for that work.

Listen, we live in a sharing web right now, everything is shared. You cant go onto the web right now and write briliant stuff and not ahve it shared, copied, and re-used.

Live with it - work with it.

It was the same with the music industry, they moved everything they could to stop downloads and sampling and so on. Work with it not against it.

Take lessons from PLR produces and so on. Embed your content with calls to cation that benefit you, or just enjoy the fact that your ideas and content are so important that others are making money from it.

EMBRACE IT DONT FIGHT IT

    I'm sure some of the people who disagree with you are probably the same ones who've downloaded hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars worth of content from P2Ps.

    To tell you the truth, I see a lot of leverage in this situation...

    AdamB - Brad here.

    I generally agree with your point and solution. Sharing effectively will eventually benefit everyone willing to take the time to add additional material to each post.

    Looking at history, that is how progress occurs. An idea is born and used for a while. Someone comes along adds to it and improves the idea and uses the improved product.

    Everyone will benefit. I enjoy the research and ability to learn on the internet more quickly than our parents were able to in the library.

    Imagine how powerful our thoughts will be once they have been combined with other equally useful thoughts and ideas.

    Here is looking for greater success and progress for all who will actively embrace the web and make their contribution - then move on.

    You got the right slant on this issue. Our work and thinking can not simply stop with our post or publication.

    I will be interested in what others think on this issue.

    Cheers !

      Totally agree - though the easy access provided by the Internet has had a lot of shortcomings in terms of low-quality content and product, it's also facilitated the research/learning process.

      I sometimes wonder what additional accomplishments people like Henry Ford and Benjamin Franklin would have accomplished should they have had access to this tool.
