reading and doing

Note: I wrote this on my earlier blog hosted as http://parallelspirals.blogspot.com/. I recovered the text from the WayBack Machine. This post appeared on Ocober 16, 2006 as per the timestamp. I’m trying to collect here again all my old writings spread on various blogs.

Everyone consumes the web differently. Web is a thing to be consumed differently. There are people who post regularly on the web and then there are people who read what has been written. They think and think. Say what wonderful work that all of them are doing and appreciate them for bringing forth a fact and then do nothing about it.

At least, that’s how I worked. I read blogs like GlobalVoices [link]. I say that what they are doing is a great job and then go home and do nothing about the things that were reported there.

Do you do anything after reading such posts which request you to use your power and freedom to make a difference?

If yes, please do not reply on the comments. It’s very easy to talk about things that you do do. What is more difficult is owing up to the fact that you don’t do anything. And, to all those people who do do something, take a bow. And the people who write these things that cause other people to do, take a bow.
