I have a couple of goals in mind
- Learn to write
- Journal my life
- Learn more about the internet
- Keep track of the cool things that i find out there on other sites
I just love the written word, it is so incredible to me what is able to be conveyed via this medium. Text can evoke feelings, inspire and teach. I LOVE belly laughing at something i am reading and find it amazing that something written in the past can bring this out in me in the present. The emotion is there, waiting for the reader, whenever it is needed. It is emotion that connects me to characters and a piece of fiction. Technical manuals offer a way to learn and can help us to navigate the technology in our lives, everything from recipes to service bulletins augment our knowledge base through shared experiences. It is even a way of time traveling. Through writing we know much about historical figures that we are not able to directly meet, another fascinating feature of written language. I love the written word and really want proficiency so that i can join the ranks and share, evoke emotion, inspire and teach. Plus i am a truly horrible speller and practice is the way to improve.
Journalling my life, I am having a damn good time here and i would love to be able to keep track of all the cool things that happen to me. Is that egotistical? It might just be, whatever.
The internet is amazing and i say this far more often then i ought to; ‘what did we do before the internet’. It is like having the best part of the Borg at our finger tips. (Actually i think the best part of the Borg would be knowing where lost things are, because that drives me crazy and someone probably does know) Having a collective conscious where massive amounts of data is available to us is totally awesome. It makes doing a project like this one possible. Ultimately I would like to be able to help others have the same engaging relationship with the web that i do. I think that it would be very satisfying to help a business owner create a website that helped users find the thing or service that they are looking for. It would be very helpful to both the business and the consumer to be able to connect and accomplish some transaction. And the transaction can be anything from the sharing of information to the exchange of payment for goods and services.
Finally, keeping track of cool things that i find. The internet is fantastic and super useful. There are somethings that i find and want to find again later. My thinking is that this can be a way of cataloging the things that i find engaging.
So, here i go with very broad goals to write about the things going on in my own little world.k8
