Blogging and Mind Control
Last night, I got a chance to discuss X-men characters and powers with some kids. I asked them, which would you prefer: the power to stop time or mind control? It's always great to discuss these kinds of concepts with kids because their natural curiosity and faculty of wonder is still prominent and untainted.
Made me think about blogging and social media and how these tools give me the power to change the way people think. No matter how few my readers may be, I still have some sort of chance at influencing their decisions and the way they think.
For instance, in a previous post about Sennheiser earphones, my stats says that yesterday I was able to get 72 people to view that post. Out of these 72 people I am sure that somehow there is at least two or more who might never buy Skull Candy earphones based on my suggestion. Now isn't that a form of mind control?
