My theory about interacting on the Internet

  • Don't email anything to anyone that you wouldn't mind reading out loud 10 years down the road to everyone on Earth.
  • Don't write a journal entry, paper, or other item published on the Internet that you wouldn't mind reading out loud 10 years down the road to everyone on Earth.
  • Don't put up photos that you wouldn't mind showing in a very large slide show 10 years down the road to everyone on Earth.
  • Double check everything you publish on the Internet BEFORE you publish it.
  • Don't make jokes about your relatives--they could be computer illiterate but someone from work could tell them.

If you want to do these things, write them in a private journal. You know--one of those paper kind.
