simply get rid of the dot

simplifying your own life starts with a lot of disruptive thinking – do i need a car – do i need an expensive house – do i need a fridge – do i need electricity whole day long – can t i simply get rid of the dot

and simplification is reflected by the way one thinks and talks and writes – writing needs to be easier for sure faster more comprehensive with less rules and a strong urge to innovate

let s have a look at the . for instance – you have probably noticed already that i don t use it any more

the ‘dot’ – was introduced a couple of hundreds of years ago because paper or parchment was pretty expensive and white space needed to be filled up and dots helped to make the txts more comprehensive

so why are we still using the dot

isn t it easier to change lines instead when you want to finish the sentence or develop a new idea

the computer makes that possible – you can fill millions of lines for free – why bother adding too much punctuation

even a ? is not really necessary – the why tells you that the previous phrase actually is a question

the capitals are another issue – capitals are a real source of tension – just write the word french without a capital and show it to a french 😉  and god too why for christ s sake is he with a capital –  jo van hove is much easier and democratic and gentle than Jo Van Hove – and i is more modest than I

the capital doesn t add to the comprehension – on the contrary it sets importance and stress wrong

and please take away all the ‘ and , and all the stuff that makes languages difficult

in french i m in favour of abbreviating a lot like

j for je – k for que – eske for est-ce que

you write faster and make less mistakes

and yes it is strange but you get used to it pretty easily

oh – i nearly forgot – there is one punctuation i really like and continue to use : the – hyphen – in dutch they say gedachtenstreepje – the little line of thoughts – le trait des pensées – good for developing thoughts and ideas

so now you know why i simply get rid of the dot and all the posts and txts on this site seem to be strangly written 😉
