in reply to T.I.T.S. Or, Try It To See.

I guess this goes in the Free Acronyms and Initializations Repository, something I just invented that I'll probably start working on in the morning, along with STFW, RTFM, and other wise bits of advice for the chronic newbie. I tend to take the TITS approach myself, more often than not, but having an amusing acronym for it will probably help prompt me to pursue such a path more diligently.

I think the availability of search tools like Google is a net win. For one thing, it actually makes autodidactism easier as a way of life in an age when it might otherwise be nearly impossible, since formal instruction is being more and more monopolized by Institutions Of Education that exist only by way of federal and state funding. Without the Internet, there wouldn't be any Linux, for instance.

Without the Internet, I would never have heard of this great acronym, TITS.

Plus, y'know, Wikipedia and PerlMonks.
