I Report Bugs - Do You?

Tony Karrer

I received an email telling me that my blog was having problems (showing code all over the page). I quickly checked and didn't see a problem and sent an email back. The response I received was: Your blog looks fine now. Sorry for wasting your time. What a misconception. The person had taken the time to report a possible bug on my site. In my mind they are doing me a huge favor. Most of the time I report bugs. And this extends beyond the online world.

Ever had a stranger ask you about something you wrote about on your blog? At first I’m a bit ‘huh?’ ’ but then I remember that um, hello…anyone can read this. My Mom. My next door neighbor. My boss. My former co-workers. My dog if he had thumbs (or if someone scrolled for him). Sometimes I worry that the personal information I share here will tick someone off.

They also have classroom activities and starter kits which feature “ cool and easy things you can do &# with each product in your classroom.
