Okie, i was interested in this whole square bubble thing the minute my fingers typed it out. Really?!?! Could it be?
Yea for Google searches where the results are actually what i'm looking for even though i entered in non-sense! Running to kitchen now to try and assemble a cube to try this since everyone needs a good parlor trick.
When i think about the internet and all of the changes it's brought into my life, the big one is knowledge. Growing up the saying "Knowledge is Power" bounced in my head often, but for someone who is shy it can be hard to seek out the right places to gain knowledge. It's not like i was going to ask people! Instead i had to search out books that might contain something interesting or try to learn something within the southern california school system. Both not so easy. Now with searching or even just subscribing to podcasts i can get awesome information delivered to me, i don't even have to look for it anymore.
One thing that i don't see as much of is dialogue about all of these awesome things we can know all share the knowledge of. It feels like so much communication is one way, or maybe that just because i hate reading comments on pages where it all spam and people who should keep their fingers off the keys if they don't have anything nice to type.
I know there are still a number of people out there on their irc chat rooms learning and sharing out their hearts content, but for those of us that typing doesn't come easy the conversation can run away pretty fast as we work to eek out just a few words in response. There is something to be said for a face to face conversation, especially when it's the sharing of ideas where any kind of brain storming is going to occur.
Now that i'm all bubble inspired i think the making of something may need to happen today...
