Chief Editors Statement
of a free press
|Since the dawn of times man wanted
to communicate. First he hit his neighbour with a stone, five minutes later
he made drawings on the walls of his cave or on stone tables and papyrus.
Later he found ways to print text and now printing is not even necessary
anymore to let the world know what thoughts are living between the ears.
This is basically good. 5.000.000.000 people on earth, that's a lot of good ideas, a lot of knowledge and wisdom. It's also a lot of repulsive stuff and bad intentions. But who are we to decide what's on either side of the line, if there is one ?
So whether you judge the contents of this publication and reject it, or just the opposite, it actually doesn't matter. All that counts are the intentions that are behind it. Intentions..... they lead us directly to this papers foundations. We have three basic rules. In case of doubt or dispute we will refer to these.
1. The contents of "The Active Worlds Watch on Sunday" are purely based on events in or directly related to Active Worlds.
2. The sources of information will at all times be protected.
3. "The Active Worlds Watch on Sunday" is intended for independant amusement only.
What do these rules actually mean ? First, Active
Worlds is our subject. But if our editors find it useful to report on events
(Reunions,...) or on products (software that could be used in Active worlds,
...) they can do so. Reports that aren't in any way directly related to
Active Worlds will not be published.
