Here is a thought….
When you use to be the top Dog and now start to copy other dogs you are just a copy cat.
I read yesterday that facebook is starting to add @mentions. Not only did they change the setup to look like twitter
Once facebook destroyed myspace and became top dog of social networking things were starting to change. The way that we communicated was starting to change. Then this little bird entered the scene and really changed the way we communicate. Mark my words, facebook is now a copy cat and will suffer the same fate as myspace in the next two years.
Why do I say this? Because I can (it doesn’t matter if I am right or wrong, I just sit behind a computer and hide from the world).
Here is my question….see if you agree or disagree
Once you start to imitate something else, you lose all ability to grow and expand?
I don’t know if there is a yes/no answer to this question, but I feel that it can definitely be true inside the fact that when you start to copy something else you can never be as good as the original. I see this in churches, in music, in everyday life. People trying to be like other people, churches trying to be like other churches, music trying to sound like other music.
It is hard to reproduce something that you did not first start.
