It's Not What You Know

You know, when you think you know something, but you really don't? Well, I keep having these constant debates with people who say, "you didn't know that?" makes me sick, because when you're an educator you try not to make people feel inadequate if they don't know something. I mean, I have been online and learning the web since 1995. But, I guess I've been totally out of the online loop.

Let's take the acronym WYSIWYG (pronounced WIZ-Zee-wig). Well, for some reason I was supposed to know what it meant. And when I, innocently, (never do that again) asked my husband what is wysiwg? should have seen the UTTER SHOCK. The shock lasted for a good few minutes; I might add, as I shrunk and shrunk and shrunk.

So in order to feel better, what did I do? I called my mom and I asked her "Do you know what wysiwyg means?" knowing that she knows less about these things than I do. But I had to make myself feel better.

But, honestly speaking...I HAD NO CLUE. It means, What You See Is What You Get. Oh well, who said, "It's not what you know it's who you know."
