Dear fellow bloggers,
it happened today to me a very interesting thing... reading the post of Carla Cretan, i saw that referring to my post of yesterday titled: "Dialogue and hospitality as a basis for mutual understanding" http://development.thinkaboutit.eu/think3/post/dialogue_and_hospitality_as_a_basis_for_mutual_understanding she says that she has the feeling to have already read this article in one of her previous posts. Thereofre my question is: have you ever heard Carla's personal and original story about the hospitality of the bedouin of... Romania and UK? I sincerely haven't...
In addition, as far as quotation and references are concerned, as you can see in my first post titled "Water demand management, Jordan", is something to which I care a lot. However, some of the posts I saw are just copied from articles from newspaper without any quotation... that's bad!
Concerning the first sentence she is refers to:
I don't know from which of her previous posts does she remember it... and in addition, it is a general sentence that any graduate in international relations and dipomacy knows. In addition, it is a basic concept of UNESCO to which many refers to.
From today if someone will talk about Climate Change as a global problem and therefore common solutions should be taken, should we put a quotation of at least all the billions of people that used this sentence? Concerning water wars, should we put a quotation of Serageldin and Boutrus Ghali every time? No-one did here in this blog, because these concepts today are common concepts that everyone could use. And therefore if taking about the interdipendent worlrd, intercultural dialogue etc, should I quote UNESCO and the many foundation working in this field, or maybe should I always quote you, just in case you had the same thought in the past?
My next post will be again on Jordan, but just in case, I'll mention you...
