I've been contemplating writing a testimonial for some time, but since I've never been a LiquidFractal client I felt there was no space for me to do so. Then I found a space for general website testimonials so I wanted to give my thoughts here.
I know there are lots of websites with forums and blogs out there but I think Gord Barensten deserves a lot of credit for what he is trying to accomplish here with an "Open Learning" website. how many people with PhDs would bother with such a thing? He runs tutoring from the website yes but he also tries as much as possible to share his vast philosophical knowledge and interest in language and literature with everyone who chooses to sign up.
i am sure having a website is difficult, I don't visit as often as i should, but when I do drop by i love the LOOK of the website, the character of the descriptive text (has anyone stopped to appreciate the philosophy forum description? 😄) and in short this is a website which deserves a wide audience of academics and nonacademics alike.
You're the man Gord and don't stop with the site - its incredibly unique and needs to be out there!
Gord is probably the best tutor i have ever had. His attention to detail in editing my writing is downright frustrating at times when he points out there are two spaces in between words where there should be one or vice versa, but in the end my papers come out looking professional and with a crystal clear flow. I wish I could write as well as he can!
