Research focus about "Digital Immigrants" and dSL: digital as a Second Language/fluency for the digital age. So much to say - this is only a new beginning.

Learning to be Cautious ONLINE

Recently hired a young guy, Brian, to install HDTV, wall mounts, surround sound system etc. After calling and speaking to several otheres from ads on - Brian seemed knowledgeable and responsive to questions.

What a terrible experience!

Brian told me to buy certain components, which I did. Well, he came and installed some of the components but he never finished the job - was scheduled to come back to hook up all the components and NO SHOW. He never returned calls. Then a few days later I was robbed. BREAK and ENTER.

Robbed all of my electronics, sound system, iPods etc including the components he instructed me to buy and my computer.

Learning the hard way - a very expensive lesson. Writing an article about it - surprising how many of us have been through this kind of scam.

A few things to do.

1. Always check for licensing - if someone is not licensed - look for someone else.
2. Check references - at least 2-3.
3. Don't pay until job completed (I was way too trusting and paid him before job was finished)
4. Clearly state agreement and have in writing - even if it's just an email exchange.

@ home

A thousand half-loves must be forsaken to bring one whole heart home.

Special thank you to my new friend Mary Zimmerman from the Financial Planners Association for the gift of this lovely Rumi quote.
