I value public information. For the most part I believe if someone has an idea, it should be shared. I think if a person with a good idea can find other people that believe in that same idea, anything can be accomplished. I do not thing that one person can have a perfect idea. I believe that every idea could be made better with the help of others. This sharing of information during that time period was the beginning of almost everything we have now. Public information has always changed the world and it will continue until that information is no longer important. Magazines can act as inspiration for whomever reads them.
