  6. 6. quot;If there were a real proof that the Sun is in the centre of the universe, that the Earth is in the third sphere, and that the Sun does not go round the Earth but the Earth round the Sun, then we should have to proceed with great circumspection in explaining passages of Scripture which appear to teach the contrary, and we should rather have to say that we did not understand them than declare an opinion false which has been proved to be true. But I do not think there is any such proof since none has been shown to me.quot; - Cardinal Robert Bellarmine, c.1633

  8. 8. “Social” Media • The [“Traditional”] media above can’t be changed. A newspaper can’t magically change its stories, even if society decides something in them is incorrect. • You can interact with my blog. You can leave a comment • You can get some sense of the popularity of my stu in real time. • With the “new media” you can look at my archives and see all posts. • Here on my blog I can mix media. A post could contain text, audio, video, or photos. • Here on my blog I don’t need to convince a committee to publish. • The new media is infinite. (time, space, schedule) • The new media is syndicatable [sic] and linkable and easily reused. • The new media can be mashed up with data from other services.
