A SHOUT OUT to IT departments everywhere, especially ours!

That famous quote from Socrates, "You don't know what you don't know" is as true today as it’s always been. But, unlike our ancestors, we have most of the answers we need at our fingertips - literally! But do we have too much information? Is the 'Information Era' in fact the 'Overload of Information Era'?

I'm not a techy. I can grasp most things once shown, but I often find myself these days recalling the Greek philosophers heeding. I'm also fiercely independent, sometimes to my detriment. With so much access to 'find things out,' I feel it's my duty to work out how to do something rather than ask for help. But here's the catch... when we don't know what we don't know, that can lead you down a rabbit warren you didn't need to go down.

On our new platform Vetlink we have a 'News' section. It's part of my job to write the articles and keep people informed of what's coming and what's happening both with Vetlink and anything noteworthy within the industry. Try as I might, for weeks I've been struggling to make links linkeable (is that even a word) and my headaches have grown steadily more debilitating. So, I decided to learn some HTML and just write out the content rather than add links into a back office my google drive didn't like. Not an easy task! Bear in mind, I learnt to type on a manual typewriter and was blown away by the Golf Ball machine when it arrived on the scene - I still remember with relish the clunking sound it made.

Anyway, long story short, our wonderful techy Phil, sent me a link today to an online HTML editor. Copy and paste an article and it does all the HTML for you! WHO KNEW!?!? Well obviously lots of people know, but if they don't know you don't know, they wouldn't think to tell you! It fascinates me that, when I google just about everything there is to google, how did I not know such sites existed? Now I know about them, it's obvious that they would - but you see I didn't know, so I couldn't know. Google clearly thought it was so obvious they existed it wasn't worth mentioning to this frustrated Gen-Xer!

Is our ability to find new information limited to the extent our current knowledge and understanding has to stretch and wander into unknown territory? We are fascinating creatures.

One of my favourite sayings (coined by myself I might add) is
"Find your still, answers never come in chaos"

So I shall, forthwith, be calmer, ask more questions and hopefully find more answers without trying to unravel the overloaded mine of information we have at our fingertips.

Thank you Phil and thank you Vetlink - not just for the amazing work you do but you both keep me on my toes.
