Times, they are achanging

Moanalua Corridor blog is definitely slow and I think Oahu - West will catch up. We have had very little kokua from Dance Hawaii, so there will be an even bigger slowdown and perhaps a possible deletion of the blog. The hit counters are what tell the tale. That is why many Internet items do not have counters, they don't want anyone to know.

"It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person:
Always do what you are afraid to do."

HBDA showed no intent to using the blog info even though the hits were there. So no use bothering them. Now the same seems to be true with Dance Hawaii. We must wish all of them the best of luck. But we must look for those that will understand the advantage of a hit counter. For now we are losing hits.

The Fluke of History will now be transferred over to Oahu - West blog and hopefully increase the reader/dancers on their counters. And don't get me wrong, one blog with 50 average hits per day is not proven to be better than one with 49 average hits per day. As far as I am concerned they are even. Now if you have one with 10 average hits per day, Moanalua Corridor with 50 htis per day is much better than yours, but that is about all you can say.

From Consumer Report:
Facebook has slowly but surely eroded the privacy controls that were centrally important to attracting users in the first place, in an effort to make more data available to advertisers. ReadWriteWeb reports that many of the TOS and privacy changes have amounted to a bait-and-switch, with Facebook suggesting that such changes will make the site more useful when in reality, the changes only enabled Facebook and third-parties greater access to data.

Pub's Side Note: Yes, much of what is written in our blogs is copied from newsletters, magazines and other Web or Blogs sites. Rudyard Kipling once wrote: "When ‘omer smote ‘is blooming lyre. He’d ‘eard men sing by land an’ sea; An’ what he thought ‘e might require, ‘e went an’ took, -- the same as me."
