I am someone who understands how to ‘find out things’. Sometimes in mere seconds I can find full extensive details about topics. I understand the variance of knowledge. I know how to find peer-reviewed journals, Alternative media (alt-media), Mainstream Media (MSM), etc. I understand the importance of platforms like reddit, and social media, which are built around user opinion and resharing of data. I understand this in both the case of research, and marketing utility. I understand the difference between royalty-free, creative commons, and private data.
Through education: – During my Diploma of Journalism I undertook a unit called News Research and the Internet. This unit was meant to highlight how to search through the mass of information on the internet and form a hierarchy of usefulness. This can be done through efficiency, awareness of media manipulation, website reliability and ‘learning to search, not surf’. –
During my Bachelor of Arts at Southern Cross University I conducted a unit called Online Media Design. The focus of this unit was to learn to utilise the internet for research, and develop foundational skills for online publishing.

Even up against the most frightening person, I am not a yesman. I have a strong ethical code, and I understand others also have their codes for living. I never make another human live within my own code, though I make duly sure that an individual keeps to their own code. With of course slight variables in regards to pleasure activities such as an occasional over-indulgence, which I find humorous instead.
In a working environment, I am generally the person that won’t shy away of informing you of an error if you request it. I am not afraid of hurting peoples feelings and have an iron disposition about doing what’s right by a persons own sense of welfare. Even if that means hurting a person temporarily to better them in the long run. I try in my daily affairs to always be truthful.
Lest, lying take up too much of my memory. I don’t have the time to lie, and I find it a waste of my energy.
