Internet Tone Discrepancy Awareness

Internet Tone Discrepancy Awareness Day

On this, the Second Annual Internet Tone Discrepancy Awareness Day, I'd like us all to reflect on our journal entries, IM conversations, and emails and think about the efforts we have made this year to understand, if not eliminate, the causes and results of ITD in our online society. We all know ITD happens. We must do whatever we can to prevent it, and should it happen, be understanding and forgiving.

Today, and every day, through careful word choice, emoticon usage, punctuation, and onomatopoeia, I will work to avoid nasty internet flareups as a result of keystroke sloppiness.
