Sometimes in the rush to get posts out on a consistent basis, mistakes get made. For example, last week when I stated that there was only one small school in Europe that offered an education in the art and science of ropeways.
That statement was made based on numerous conversations I’d had with people in the ropeway industry, all of whom assured me that there was only one school.
Apparently, however, that isn’t exactly true. As the readers of The Gondola Project let me know, there are a handful of schools around the world that do offer some schooling in the subject matter, including for example the University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland.
Not many mind you, but certainly not only one.
So please accept my apologies. I shouldn’t have taken at face value what a few people said without backing up my statements with my own independent research.
The curse of the internet and things like a blog is the need to pump out content at a never-ending, voracious pace, sometimes at the expense of accuracy.
The flipside of that, however, is that when you do get something completely wrong – as I did last week – there are no shortage of people willing to point that out to you.
Thanks to all the Gondola Project readers who did so politely, positively and as a show of support rather than out of one-upmanship.
