We believe that the Internet's greatest asset is its
interactivity. It provides everyday people with a way to express themselves
to thousands of other everyday people all over the world. It is nothing
like television or radio - it has greater potential than either of those
two mediums could ever have. It allows us to sample a greater range
of opinion than ever before, to expose ourselves to ideas and people
that we'd never encounter in our neighborhoods. And it lets us share
ourselves - our thoughts, our lives, our feelings.
We wanted to make a place where you could express your
views and share your stories, because everyone has views and stories
to share. Knowledge and insight isn't the exclusive domain of whoever
happens to own the newspapers or the publishing houses, and some of
the greatest writers and thinkers have yet to be published.
We've been surfing the Internet and reading newsgroups
for years, and before that we visited BBS's. We've always been fans
of good writing and clear thinking. Brighty is a place for opinions
and ideas, for discussions and argument, for art and commentary. It's
our place, but mostly it's your place. Take advantage of it - send us
your opinion pieces, your book and movie reviews, your short stories.
Throw your weight around. Tell the world the truth as YOU see it. Enlighten
everyone, and in turn be enlightened by what others have to share.
Your comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome.
