WYSIWYG

I believed a good number of you folks are not sure what is the meaning of today's title!
"WYSIWYG" is a very common acronym used some years back in computing world which briefly defined as whatever you see on the editing mode will be the similar content that you will get as an output (printed copy, webpage or User Interface screen). It stands for "What You See Is What You Get".

In the recent years, this term is being used less frequently, especially with the advent of the Web 2.0 [click to learn more] (refers to social networking sites, blogs, video sharing etc...), it has blurring the line of what is real and what is fake. Many a time, what you see might not be what you get! At times, you can't even tell whether the site that you are accessing is a real one or not (phising [click to learn more] in action).

Having said that, gaining new information and knowledge is still very critical to enhance the quality of our life or improve our business (especially if you are in e-Business or an e-entrepreneur like Internet Marketer [click to learn more], which the web is effectively your marketplace). In fact, the speed of learning and the source of the information/knowledge do play a key role nowadays. For example, when comes to on-line shopping, which site you trusted most? I guess first that comes to your mind is.....



Am I right?

Besides, happiness can be learned (remember the Positive Psychology course in my earlier blog?), we need to constantly look for new sources of information/knowledge to keep up with the world. Of course, web is the easiest and cheapest source of learning, anything and everything under the sun. Web and mobile computing will be here to stay. It's never too late to learn anything, Just Do It!

My quote of the day comes in 2 parts:

"Everyday is a new beginning, make your days count by learning something new everyday!"
"The day when you think you have nothing else to learn, it marks the beginning of an end!"

Cheers!
