Out of the (blogging) closet

While I was away from work last week, I set my students a guided research assignment on the Singapore blogosphere. Naturally, a cautionary bell thundered in my head as I did so: I'm sending them out to find Singapore blogs --- what if they find mine?"

And so, at least one has.

I've always blogged with the philosophy that you've got to be able to live with what you post on the Internet, so I'm none too bothered by this latest development, although it was very surreal to learn of it while squinting half-blind, sans glasses or contact lenses, at my iBook screen at 2:15 in the morning after a long day of excellent mahjong (and junk food, and DVDs, and paper-wrapped chicken). Talk about not believing one's eyes. I had to scramble for my glasses to verify that I wasn't seeing things.

So first, a colleague; now a student. The next thing you know, my parents will be reading this. Now that's a scary thought.

Witch-hunting on the blogosphere starts to get nasty and dirty, and on your site to boot! quite frightening, really, when one gets crucified for writing under a pseudonym. moral reasoning there like riding an elephant over quicksand.

Well, I hope this muddy desk gets cleaned up.

Anyways, I think students are too arrogant for their own good. I'm not one for the young'uns. They're ruining the future for us pea-green thirty-somethings... but they never knew what it was like before.

Be careful what you ask for... :)
