News travels fast in todays world of digital information. Blogs, Forums, Facebook and Twitter allow for easy and quick repetition of a bit of information. Heck twitter even has a name for it ‘retweeting’ (look for the posts that start with RT). I guess not so long retweeting would have been called gossiping. However, just as in real life you can’t always believe everything somebody tells you. Sometimes you need to check to make sure the information you’re getting is true. Because yes, not everything that is repeated, retweeted or posted is always true. Yesterday Ted Neward fell prey to believing someone he received an email from and responding by posting a response on his blog. Now why would I care? Well, the email Ted got told him that DevelopMentor was bye bye… As a former instructor at DevelopMentor Ted felt sad and wanted to pay homeage to the “many good people” at DevelopMentor. As it turns out the email Ted received contained false information, but within minutes of posting the blog entry information was spreading (I believe the word is ‘virally’) across the Internet with re-tweets and all those other forms of digital goodness spreading this piece of false information almost at the speed of light.
Now the good news is that DevelopMentor is very much alive and kicking and that the “many good people” that Ted paid homage to are working there today. They are teaching classes, helping customers be all that they can be. And not just with teaching classes, but also with onsite training, consulting on projects and also with the new Remote Access Open Enrollment Courses*.
Upcoming classes include:
June 15 Essential C# in LOS ANGELES
June 15 Essential Windows Communication Foundation in BOSTON
June 22 Essential Windows Presentation Foundation in BOSTON
