Yesterday I messed up. Offended a lot of people. Got a lot of hate mail. It is interesting what you learn when you 'go public' with your thoughts on a regular basis. One of the things I learned is that people believe I put myself up as an expert. I am not sure where and at what point I proposed being an expert on anything. I don't really even know what an expert is. I looked it up and here's what an 'expert' seems to be:
"An expert is a person with extensive knowledge or ability based on research, experience, or occupation and in a particular area of study. Experts are called in for advice on their respective subject, but they do not always agree on the particulars of a field of study."
Well, I have never thought of myself as an expert but I suppose it's all a matter of degree. I've spent the last forty years of my life designing, building and playing in the field of high end stereo systems. I also enjoy not agreeing with other 'experts' in the field. By some definitions that makes me an expert. But I certainly don't think of myself as one. My mission with these posts is to share what knowledge and experience I have, for whatever they are worth, to whomever wants to read them and share theirs back. Thanks for reading and sharing.
