Given my present understanding of my ubiquitous lack of understanding of
the world in general, I can’t help but smile just a bit when I think
about my beliefs when I was around 15 years old. I was in 10th grade at
the time and good god did I ever have it all figured out. On a pretty
consistent basis I would use words like “ignorance, short sighted and
unaware” when talking to my mother; and I guess probably most other
people that had the misfortune of chatting with me. As you can probably
guess, it turned out that I really didn’t know everything. Well, here I
am a full-grown adult and, fortunately, I am much, much wiser; I
currently know that I don’t know anything. And, if I ever start to
forget that, I am thankfully reminded on a consistent basis how little I
really know.

This just happened about 10 minutes ago, in fact. I thought that I had
the internet marketing and advertising thing pegged. I was thinking
about all those annoying pop ups and all the other advertising that
frustrates me; on the up side this irritating new field of advertising
has given rise to an unprecedented number of new jobs, for the people
that are able to create all the software that shields the rest of us from
the internet advertising. So, anyways I had my mind made up that people
could be divided up into two camps—the good and the bad. But, much like
the Haitian Revolution, things have much more complexity than just black
and white (haha, I just threw that in there to pretend like I did know
something…I had to read a book for school).

Let’s get back to the topic at hand. I sort of saw the internet
marketers as a group that found their financial success wherever it
happened to be and without consideration as to what was necessary in
order to achieve it. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think they’re killing
puppies or anything. But, I do think that there’s a certain pride that
can come from contributing something positive to the greater community
and those that choose to directly and consciously work in means that are
in direct conflict with that aren’t on the good side.

But, I just was informed about alittle thing that’s throwing a wrench in
my good vs. evil dissection of the world. It’s the business that does
networking for the internet advertisers and marketers. Now, it seems
like the companies that are behind all the banner ads and the like are on
the short end of the stick from these internet advertisers for the
internet advertisers, the victim of uncouth internet practices. This
changes everything for me. I’m not simply talking about internet
advertising, but the mulit-layered complexities that is a spider web of
friends and foes and who is crossing who and bac k stabbing who, while
helping who else. Hmm, I have a lot to think about, but for sure I
understand that I definitely don’t know anything.
