There is a lot of wisdom squirreled away in comment threads on blogs. Sometimes I think it’s a shame that a particularly wise comment is tucked away, hidden from all but the most dedicated (or otherwise unoccupied) searcher.
Deti is the author of many gems like that. Any time I see his name atop a comment I always read it carefully. I don’t always agree – he’s more cynical (no doubt he’d define it as more realistic) than I am. Even so, I have learned some things from him, and had nebulous thoughts focused by reading what he has to say. Although our worldviews are not identical, we agree on an awful lot of stuff.
Somebody had started compiling his comments and putting them up on a blog called Deti Nation. Go have a look. Deti is smart, wise, and writes well. Consider what he says carefully.
There’s about five more of you bastards out there I hope this happens to.
Deti, I hope this is okay with you. If not, let me know and I’ll remove this post and the link. And hound you to start your own blog again.
