Become a Better Reader

Take a look at this article. The write makes some good points about reading things on the web. I think the best is the first:

Don't take things at Face Value
Even if the article was written by an unquestioned expert take the time to question it. The author says

. . . every article ever written has something in common: they were all written by a person, and as much as we’d all like to be perfect, sometimes we get things wrong.
Yep, and sometimes the writer has some sort of motive. Whether it's to get you to vote a particular way or to buy something or even to continue reading to support the advertising on the site. Be cautious and take note of that nagging little voice in your head.

Question, try, comment, and participate to get the best out of an article. Mull it over, just because it appears on the web doesn't mean that it is gospel.
