Thank you for all who have commented. I listen and I hear you.
I started this blog as a manifesto for skiers to interact and contribute to the betterment of this great sport. I view knowledge as dynamic. Positions on issues should change in response to new and better information. Without this process learning cannot happen.
A significant challenge to making the Manifesto serve this purpose is that it has been difficult for me to know the nature of the information my readers are seeking and whether my posts are providing this information or even resonating with my readers. When put up a post I need to get feedback, suggestions and yes, criticism. If you don’t agree with my position on an issue please tell me. As a critical thinker (self-critical) I always entertain the posssibility that my position on issue is wrong. At the very least my explanations may not be clear. If this is the case, I need to know.
If you want me to post on a certain subject, please let me know. Without this information I could be wasting my time.
The uncertainty as to the nature of the information my readers are seeking or subjects that will be found in search engines has resulted in post threads that are disjointed as expressed by the comment below from a follower:
While the blog might be improved by some minor rearranging of the sequence of blogs, the important thing is that the information is in there. You have, in fact, suggested sequences for the practical application of several principles, boot fitting for example.
An easy way for me to address this issue is to repost existing posts in a sequence that will group them together according to the subject. After I respost the older post I can edit it in response to comments. So instead of deleting the blog I am proposing culling some posts and reposting and collating existing posts. But I can’t do it without your input and especially your suggestions.
I believe a good starting point is a discussion of how our hard-wired mechanism for walking applies to skiing and especially what is called steering. Does everyone agree? If not please suggest a subject.
