    Hi everybody,

    Today I have come up with a new idea of starting a game after seeing the overwhelming responses for word building game.

    We the members of IL enjoy by visiting this site , reading jokes, messages, knowledge building articles,and even help some one by answering to their problems.I thought why not we devise a source for some purpose by just starting as game of entertainment? Grab this opportunity.

    Said by Mr.John Keats ”I find that I can have no enjoyment in the world but continual drinking of knowledge”.

    Very often we may feel inferior when we are lagging behind in our general knowledge.We often look it as some thing which is unreachable in height.No.Not at all.Only little drops make an ocean.So why not we start saving our knowledge by getting it through our site.Yes the topic of the game is “Game of sharing knowledge”.It goes like this.
    1) Post a question of any topic and simultaneously post the answer also.
    2) Members who are reading this gets benefited by knowing something new and some might have already known also.
    3) Its your choice to continue the game by contributing another question and its answer.
    The main problem is the source and implementation. IL is a source& a tool where in we can do what we think. Though we can get books on GK ,watch game shows on TV.But we should allocate time for that.But we are not doing anything special here.

    Just in word building game every one of us played very casually. Just do the same thing with the impact of the information to be shared by members our members.

    By this way we can share our knowledge and also learn new and keep ourselves updated. We can get a minimum of one question per day. The question may be of any topic,any kind ranging from politics,cinema, Medicine,Inventions and discoveries,knowing the synonym of a word.No reservations on topic.The remembrance can be effective.

    Let me start the game.

    My Question is
    <DD> </DD><DD>Martin Luther King was best known for his philosophy of</DD><DD> a)Black nationalism</DD><DD> b)civil disobedience</DD><DD> c)socialism</DD>
    The answer: civil disobedience
    King advocated civil disobedience, the non-violent resistance against unjust laws:evil: .

    Hi Bhargavi

    Nice idea. It is very interesting and we can share our knowledge with others and learn from others. So nice of it.

    Here my question is what is a "blog". In today's tech world blog became a common word, so I thought it will be useful for others as I found there r some people in our IL who do not know about blog.

    QUESTION: What is a blog?

    [SIZE=-1]Blog is a personal journal/diary that is available on the web. Actually b[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]log is short for weblog. A weblog is a journal or newsletter that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Blogs generally represent the personality of the author or the Web site. So, it is like an online diary.

    [/SIZE][SIZE=-1]The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger." [/SIZE][SIZE=-1]Blogs are typically updated daily.[/SIZE]
