About Be Brilliant

This website is my online library through which I share books, documentary films, articles and other material that I have found to be informative and valuable.

The site was launched in February 2009 and significantly updated in July and early August of 2013. During September and early October of 2015 the site was migrated to a new CMS (Content Management System) and completely redesigned. This was a truly monumental undertaking but I am very happy with the result. The site has a great collection of titles in a wide range of subjects that you can choose from to watch and read.

A few pointers for using the new site: you can start browsing from any link and if you start browsing from the top level menu, you can also click on the titles in the list that is shown for easy further navigation (i.e. tags and related videos where applicable). These titles turn light blue if you hover over them with your mouse. Hovering over a tag with your mouse will show you how many articles/topics that tag contains. By clicking Ctrl and minus, or Ctrl and plus on your keyboard, you can adjust the page width to your preferred reading size. 

Comment boxes are spaces on the website where you can share your opinions and observations with other website visitors. A few guidelines apply:

* Please make your comments constructive, courteous and relevant

* No self-serving or flagrant promotion of goods, sites or services

* Comments are for public viewing and should not contain any personal information (email addresses, telephone numbers and such). Anonymous comments are allowed.

* If you leave a comment on a page, article or blog post or if you choose to be updated about replies to your comment(s) via email, a cookie may be stored to remember your email address for the next time you visit. The email address that you use will only be visible to me in the administrator dashboard.

To avoid spam all comments will be manually approved before appearing on the site, and they will not be posted if they don’t meet the guidelines above. If a portion of a comment is not allowable I will remove the entire comment, so play fair and be nice.

This website contains a lot of information and some of it can be pretty complex and daunting. If you plan to have an extended browsing session I therefore recommend, that you make yourself comfortable with a beverage and a snack, and then enjoy your journey. Since 2009 the articles and documentaries have been read and viewed by visitors from every continent on the globe and I hope that you will find something that is of interest to you as well.

A Word Of Caution For New Visitors

As Morpheus said to Neo in the movie 'The Matrix': "After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes".
