Before the internet, my generation awoke many days to brave the early-morning cold to retrieve the daily newspaper—of course barefoot, in the snow, uphill, both ways. Yes, we in the pre-internet era braved mother nature for our information kick. When we returned inside the home, we prepared our table, desk, or floor to place our newspaper and to have the first crack at the paper. There was something magical about removing the rubber band off the tightly-rolled paper. Anticipation was high to learn the score of a game that may have concluded 18 hours before. But, we convinced ourselves that other than those who were at that game, we were the first to know about the game.
Do we anticipate much of anything anymore? We often know our wedding gifts weeks in advance since we already picked them out by registering at Target. We know the gender of our babies months in advance. Heck, we live in a society that demands the commercials of the Super Bowl days before the Super Bowl. Really, we can’t even wait for the commercials anymore?
Okay, so we live in a pretty cool time. Information is flying and we love it. We may try to reenact the newspaper experience, but only to disappoint ourselves once we realize that we already know most of what’s in there.
So, why pollshark.net? We already have all the information we can possibly download into our brains. The next step is to learn how our society is processing the same information. In some areas we match up with our peers. In others, we are way off. And that’s okay.
The goal of pollshark.net is to take a topic that interests you and then to provide you a polling forum to see where you stack up with society.
So, come on inside. Put your feet up. Click away at what interests you. If you have suggestions of polls that should be on the site, let us know. We want pollshark.net to be a site that matches you and your interests.
