Japanese Hatena user id:TomoMachi argues that now that everything on the Internet is so easily accessible to everyone, the value of simply “knowing something” is disappearing [ja]. User id:aureliano follows with a post pointing out that while rote memorization is becoming meaningless, the same is not true of writing an intelligent text [ja], which is as difficult as ever. id:aureliano goes on to list 10 points to consider in producing such a well-written text.
It made me wish I knew Japanese better. I tried to use google translate but I couldn’t understand what the 10 points were. It seems to me that those 10 points would be useful to everyone.
I suggest trying something other than Google, Google Translate is notoriously bad for Japanese. Try this excite translation instead.
