The KISS Version Revealed

10/28/12 | by the professor [mail] | Categories: Announcements, Kiss Versions (short reposts)

Link: http://addictionscience.net/ASNdiscussion.html

Some commentaries that receive sufficient interest to merit revision will be reissued as a succinct statement that incorporates highlights from the subsequent discussion and/or follow-up commentaries (i.e., highlights of related commentaries). These new summaries are designed to summarize the main discussion in a simple, concise manner. The Keep It Simple Stupid approach is affectionately referred to as the "KISS version" and will include a trackback to the original commentary or commentaries and any relevant discussion for those who would like to read the full version or retrace the original discussion(s). The KISS versions are provided as a convenience to those who don't wish to read through the entire original posting(s) and subsequent replies that generated the proverbial 'bottom line.' This should be especially useful for the 'speed surfers' who peruse a lot of material, very quickly on the Internet and help viewers to determine which commentaries merit slowing down to ponder the discussion. Some commentaries that address interrelated topics (often interspersed with unrelated commentaries) will be consolidated into a single KISS version as will select commentaries that have later podcasts appended.

Criteria for generating a KISS version include:

  1. sufficient interest as evidenced by the number of viewers and/or replies to the posting,
  2. significant revision to the original posting, either changes in actual content or simply an easier, more concise way of conveying the primary information,
  3. KISS version consolidates several interrelated commentaries addressing a common theme (e.g., provides an integrative overview) with the original commentaries left to explore the individual topics in more depth, and
  4. time to accomplish the task of revision.

Perhaps this KISS announcement will merit a KISS itself. ;)
