Two words for my 2013

… that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man, who in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of truth.[…] Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, outcry, and slander, be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you. Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children. Walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling fragrance.

Assignment 6

Everybody knows how much I love internet and being connected. Anyway, reading this article by Stephen Downes, the first thing that has come up to my mind is: trolls. You can find the definition of this word here. More than anywhere, on the net you risk to find people who take part into a conversation just in order to be annoying and irritating. And some other people just comment on your posts or works, by being bad and even offensive. The absolute freedom of the net is just like the free will. If God has made all of us free to be bad or good, well, even on the net we can apply this freedom…But sometimes this freedom scares me a lot. There are some trolls that hurt me a lot with their comments on my notes, reviews and posts. Connection is freedom and freedom is sometimes translatable into cruelty…

This is the reason why I write my very personal thoughts  on facebook where only my friends can comment…
