Whadaya Know! Knights of Columbus has a YouTube Channel

I finally called the Knights of Columbus central offices, and found out that they've got a YouTube channel: KOFCsupreme.

That's great, but it took talking to three people in three Knights of Columbus headquarters departments to find.

No, Really: This One is Done by Knights of Columbus

The only YouTube channel that claimed to be by Knights of Columbus looks okay, and didn't have any of the culturally-normative Catholic-bashing. So far, so good.

I hope that whoever set it up meant well, but that channel was, in effect, a poser. (I'm pretty sure that it's an 'unofficial' YouTube channel, since a rather highly-placed person in the K. of C. headquarters' eBusiness department knew nothing about it. However, it was the only YouTube Channel I could find that implied that it was by Knights of Columbus at the national level: at least, after maybe ten minutes of searching through YouTube's new interface. Channels by K. of C. councils and individual members: That, I could find.


Anyway, now I know where to find the real Knights of Columbus, Supreme, YouTube Channel:This, I'm pretty sure, is the real McCoy, since I got the URL straight from K. of C. headquarters this afternoon.

The poser? Like I said, that channel looked legit - and had a total of five video uploads. One of them had been uploaded about two years ago; the other four, all around around the same time last year. It looked like all too many corporate websites I've seen: probably designed by an intern one year, updated a couple years after that by another intern, and the responsibility of a manager who's never been online - and has never used a keyboard.1

I probably wouldn't have taken the trouble, finding the real Knights of Columbus YouTube channel, but I'd run into an issue with a post I wrote earlier today:Which KOFCsupreme's content resolved for me.
1 That may not be much of an exaggeration, I'm afraid. Many people in positions of responsibility are around my age. (I'm pushing 60.) And, unlike me, had the desire for conventional success in the world of business.

I didn't opt for a 'success track' career. I did, however, learn how to type: Because my handwriting's almost indecipherable to others. I kept up with information technology because a number of jobs I had required it - and it was one of the many things that fascinate me.

As a result, I've kept up with Information Age technology. And learned how to be a radio disk jockey and beet chopper - but that's another story.

Serious, career-minded executives? My guess is that many of them know a little about the technology that was common when they were in their teens and twenties: and simply don't understand what's been developed since then.

What's That Doing in a Nice Catholic Blog?

From time to time, a service that I use will display links to - odd - services and retailers.

I block a few of the more obvious dubious advertisers.

For example: psychic anything, numerology, mediums, and related practices are on the no-no list for Catholics. It has to do with the Church's stand on divination. I try to block those ads.

Sometime regrettable advertisements get through, anyway.

Bottom line? What that service displays reflects the local culture's norms, - not Catholic teaching.
