Full of tubes...

As much as I bitch about the internet making magic (and the world for that matter) a kinda messed up place, it does have an upside.

Despite what the majority shows us, there are a number of creative people in magic. You might now know it, because these people work for a living. The net gives a number of people the freedom to share their ideas instantly. Magic has seen a hell of a revival in new ideas because the sharing of information is so quick. What used to take months if not years for an idea to get from one coast to another, now takes seconds.

In a way this forces us to step up our game to stay current. In other ways it can be a hindrance as you are so inundated with material, you don't get the necessary flight and practice time in to perfect something before you move on to the next shiny distraction. As the old saying goes, "It is better to know 4 things really well, than 100 things very badly"

So pace yourself folks. Dole out the information to yourself sparingly. Just because you can have it better, faster, now... doesn't mean you should take advantage of it. Everything in moderation...

including moderation.
