On sharing...

I visited NNEST Caucus's blog and I know that Lucie has been working real hard to keep the site going. In one of her rumblings ;-) she mentioned something about sharing and this has caught my eye. I've touched on that topic here on my blog and on our Taiwanese YG, and now it has resurfaced again, this time on an international caucus group.

I posted a comment and here's what I wrote:

Hi there,

Apologies for not being so active lately. I've been busy with school, wrapping things up- now that we're on our last week of school. But I still have to take care of grading a listening and speaking test for an admission test that we gave this week. Anyway, I read your message and this statement caught my attention, "Maybe not ideas about presentations, since we don't want other people to use our original ideas, write the same proposal, and compete against us." You know, Lucie, I think, this is the very culprit why people hesitate to 'share'. I also find this to be true among taiwanese teachers. Having said that, I am beginning to think that this is not a cultural thing. It happens everywhere and to all of us. It's part of being human. People are willing to share for as long as it they deem it safe and productive. However, people also tend to protect themselves and their personal interests, as well. Just like what you said about competing with each other. If you let your guards down, there is always that fear that others may take advantage of the situation [vulnerability or whatever that is].

p.s.
you're doing a good job Lucie, keep it up ;-)


This is something that I should keep in mind and should be mentioned in my thesis!!!

Hello there aiden, I find reading blog articles like On sharing... most rewarding. It enhances the experiences of life in many cases.

Being a webmaster I tend to sometimes have a soft spot for blogs related to hyperlinking and /or sites that are built around hyperlinking type items.

Once again, thank you aiden, and I will look for your posts again in the future. :-)

Hi aiden, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a article such as yours with a familiar topic such as On sharing.... It somehow ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I have a soft spot for blogs related to web scripts and /or sites that have a central theme around web scripts type items.

Once again, thank you aiden, hope to see more posts from you in the future :-)
