Battle For The Net

“This isn’t a fight between some web platforms and Comcast. This is a fight for the future of the Internet — and whether it will continue to be the greatest facilitator of speech, democracy, and innovation that the world has ever … Continue reading

What Happens Next?

What Happens Next?. I wrote in response. In fact, I got going and had to stop; my response became a little bit of a rant. This is and truly should be a passion evoking subject. What do you think? I … Continue reading

“As I contemplate the impacts that Fracking is having across the globe, the success and the losses – I realize the only way to stop this destructive act of extracting resources from our precious Earth is by building and uniting a stronger movement around the globe. The people who know what is happening must unite, and must educate and inspire others to join our movement by showing them what truly is at stake. Only when we get the masses out on the front lines will we have a chance to conquer this beast that threatens the very fabric of our future and those to follow. When I was in Pennsylvania and saw some of what has happened to their state, the rivers that have been poisoned the land that has been destroyed and the fight that continues on, I felt deeply saddened by the ignorance of the human race. Their fight has been strong in Pennsylvania, with some success, but with more destruction as the industry continues to drill on. We are drilling our way to a place of no return as our planet continues to warm and climate extremes become more and more common. Fracking is not a safe bridge away from fossil fuels! Robert F. Kennedy just came out and said again that natural gas is a catastrophe! When will the corporations promoting this harmful extraction wake up and realize that the future of our children is more important then their profits?” ~Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 13 year old indigenous environmental activist from Boulder, Colorado.

This has to be re-posted in the hope that it reaches more of us. For only our knowledge and sharing of it and standing together ‘not’ to stand for things that we can then prevent will change our future, before it … Continue reading

This is a start, but not the beginning. This is not finished, nothing ever ends.

Snippets of conversation – with myself. Such is life and its’ many elements. Many unfinished. Yet do they need to be finished to be of value? How many half read books, part conversations held or overheard; how many cutting remarks, half … Continue reading

IT is All in the Title?

A title. The title is all important. I have one line to capture your attention and make you want to read on. Apparently. There are people who demand attention, their voices project from some personal amphitheatre constructed by scaffolders of … Continue reading

Feeling good – gossip

The hyphen is important. These words do not belong together. All advertising is good advertising? If somebody is talking about us at least we are interesting enough to be talked about? There is written somewhere by someone – possibly most … Continue reading

Coffee shop despondency?

I’m sitting in Starbucks. I’m not a Starbucks fan. I’m not a fan of anything corporate. Yet it is hard to find an independent anything these days. Less, or should that be ‘more’ so in the city. I’m sitting in … Continue reading

I worry when I write. Not overly yet a bit. I re-read. edit and re-read at a later date looking for faux pas. I do not want my writing to be word-perfect and I try to keep the language simple … Continue reading

Time-Out, out, in?
