Picture this! Three men appear before a judge accused of inciting terrorism using the Internet. Words like "website", "web forum", "networking", "internet" are flying around in the court. The judge looks abscent minded. He is. He's struggling with these technical terms. He can't bare it any longer. He interrupts the prosecuter and blurts out...
The trouble is I don't understand the language. I don't really understand what a Web site is.
Prosecutor stops prosecuting to give the judge a crash course on Basic Internet 101. At the end, the judge admits (I can just picture his irritated look) "I haven't quite grasp the concept". To make things more complicated, a computer expert was called upon as a witness. The judge told the prosecutor "Will you ask him to keep it simple, we've got to start from basics." I like the "we" part here. Who else doesn't know what a web site is? Imagine the drama and bickering if a female judge said this? I wonder why another judge who's less technologically-challenged was not assigned to this case.
