Dear Readers,

Today it is so easy to send information over the Internet but it is still very difficult to communicate ideas. Actually it is difficult to
really understand ideas, including your own.
Therefore I am sending you INFORMAVORE’s SUNDAY issue 484 asking you to send it to everybody you know (your lists of
Contacts) perhaps some people will like it, use it and read the other issues too. Who knows, perhaps till the last issue (it always exists a last issue, and I don’t think somebody will continue to compose it)
IS will become popular. (ROFL!)
I am writing it in a “carpe diem” regime because there will be not so many days left for me. And what’s certain, even less weeks.
