We are now in an age of information, too much of it.
We suffer not from lack of knowledge, but from overwhelming amount of data everyday.
Still, we write big articles, use fancy words, bring useless metaphors, reiterate same points in never-ending comments. A waste of time to both readers and writers.
This is a challenge to all of us, to:
- Use smaller words that carry more weight
- Be honest with facts, while be kind in the message
- Read before publish, trim out useless padding
In the end, length is not proof of wisdom, but an inability to reduce information to its simplest form
