I often get people emailing in about blog posts and videos I’ve made. They want changes. They have corrections. They think I’ve been unfair. They offer feedback.
What they don’t have, most of the time, is a link to the blog post or video in question.
They don’t realize that the blog post they’ve been worrying about is not on my mind. They act as though what absorbs them absorbs me too.
That’s why rules of social engagement are important. When I deal with smart cultured people, they usually include links to what they’re talking about because they’ve been educated that what is important to you is often peripheral to others.
