I love the internet for the same reasons billions of people around the world do. Almost all knowledge is at our fingertips at all hours of everyday. As a world population, we are the most knowledgeable in the history of the world. Yet the more knowledgeable we become the more some very basic and old wisdom seems to fade from our consciousness. I suppose I can only speak from my own experiences and the world may seem a totally different place to many.

It's actually quite ironic that these thoughts are pouring out via such anonymous means. In that lies both beauty and decadence of the internet. The internet is the most effective tool for self-expression in the history of mankind since the advent of written language. Never in history have we had such a potent open canvas. We have the ability to reach billions of people instantly. The ability to influence billions of people, for good or evil; it sounds corny at first glance but it's a very serious truth. The truth is that the old adage "I'm only one person, I can't make a difference" has never been more untrue.

BUT and it's an important "but", all is for nothing if we lose our sense of interconnectedness. The internet is just a tool, one that's very effective for giving us an audible voice. Once we have find that voice, we must expand it to the real world.

That is my goal starting now.

I invite all the Operation Sports community to follow along as I begin my path; a path that hopefully leads me to make a difference in our world for the better.

Stay tuned :-)
