How To Become an Information SuperStar

Written by Michael Patton

Onrepparttar African Plain there is a Meta Predator and her name is Leo. Panthera leo to be exact.

The internet isrepparttar 119105 greatest collection of wealth or fodder, depending upon your info-perspectiverepparttar 119106 world has ever seen. With such a cacophony of directories filled with video, text, imagery, sound, fury, Hot Flash and Cold Fusion, what's an information cheetah to do in order to make sense of it all and take it to another level ofrepparttar 119107 Game?

Simple. Userepparttar 119108 expertise of your fellow experts to reach escape velocity. Take yourself torepparttar 119109 Meta level with something that is free, easy to use and will make your search for mission critical information a cruise.

Deja News: ( The archive of Usenet.

A Meta Expert takes advantage of other experts inrepparttar 119110 way that a meta search engine takes advantage of smaller search engines,repparttar 119111 way that a lion takes advantage of smaller predators such asrepparttar 119112 Cheetah.

No, I don't work for Deja, or have any affiliation with them whatsoever. I'm simplyrepparttar 119113 writer, athlete, producer, graphic designer, videographer Company Computer Guy, Marketer, PR man, CEO, CIO, CTO, chief dog walker and all around Mass Media Information SuperStar at large of networks (The SuperDog Station)

I'm a corporation of one and I know I'm not alone out there.

I became an expert on dogs via my own inherent brilliance, passion and background in writing and biology, with a big helping hand from Usenet (newsgroups). By reading posts from experts acrossrepparttar 119114 country, I quickly discernedrepparttar 119115 existence of, and in fact coinedrepparttar 119116 phrases to describe three major camps inrepparttar 119117 Dog Game: A. Koehler Nazis (a choke chain is their best friend) B. Control Freaks (a cage is their best friend) C. Psychologists (Prozac is their only friend)

and I came out swinging with my own site, media, personality and "DOG GAME" philosophy which treats dog training as a game,repparttar 119118 way dogs treat it and which views (correctly) dogs asrepparttar 119119 athletes and hunters that they are, and not "problems" to be fixed or solved with punishment, cages or expensive drugs.

As a usenet pro, I quickly learned to spot experts in other groups, including Digital Video, Computer Hardware, Software, Web Developing, and everything else I needed to learn YESTERDAY in order to create my own television presence on almost no budget.

Newsgroups are communities anyone can join, where experts in their fields, everything from motherboards for Athlon Processors, Danish Gardening, Bicycle Mechanics and questionable sexual habits get together to fight, laugh, educate, commiserate and battle forrepparttar 119120 soul ofrepparttar 119121 digital demographic and isrepparttar 119122 Grand Central Station of information.

Professional and well regulated Internet publishing companies, as well asrepparttar 119115 merchant banks they employ make every effort to ensure thatrepparttar 119116 credit card details and information sent to them is well protected.
