The PaperClip Project

Tolerance.  Acceptance.


You know I try not to be too political in the blog.. I mean it’s supposed to be for tech notes and what not… but this weekend is the American holiday of Memorial Day where we pay tribute to Veterans of American Wars…and on the TV they’ve got several themed movies playing today.  One of them reminded me of community.


Today on the television I watched a movie that wasn’t about paying tribute to veterans at all.  It was about a Paperclip.  A Paperclip Project.

…and in my typical one track mind … it reminds me that tolerance in any community is a good thing.  A very good thing.  And it’s something that we need to remember in all of our communities.. the ones we live in… the ones we work in….. and especially our online ones.


I’m going to go find me a paperclip and remind myself to try to ensure that my online community and all of the communities that I live in are ones that remember the lesson of the PaperClip.   


“We can change the world”
