The navigator without compass

09.06.2019, last update 01.09.2019

I am a self-taught person and I was able to learn most of what I know today about web development by myself, surfing the web. Not every person can realize the incredible possibilities that this wide world offers us. What I value most is knowledge: you can know everything! If on the one hand it's so easy to look for anything, on the other hand it's very difficult to be able to construct your own opinion around the information that can be found. For every topic you search info about, I assure you'll find both articles in favor and articles against, so what is the right way to proceed? How can you be able to build you very own, personal opinion about what you're reading? Nowadays everyone has the possibility to search for information on anything on the web: recipes, tickets, events, video games, books, movies, music, TVs, reviews on a specific topic, and much, much more. Not only: each of us has the opportunity to make our voices heard, spreading our own ideas, right or (unfortunately) wrong. By combining these two elements, the result is that what can be found on the net is not only true or false, but it can also be a personal reflection, opinion, idea, consideration or warning.

What I want to focus on, however, is not the generic theme of fake news and the like: every time I search for something on the web, I get results like:

And so on.

I must admit it's not easy to orient in such a messy and opinion-filled world, although being able to express your personal opinion is an absolutely undeniable asset. The only thing to do is to roll up your sleeves, striving to be able to outline your own thoughts, trying to consult a good number of sources, so that you are no longer a navigator without a compass, because you have built the compass yourself.
