Increasingly i think the web is in fact the Entanglement … The Great Entanglement, to be spoken of in future generations such as the Enlightenment, a signal of change but this time its for the worse. We are heading toward a situation that we read predictions indicate a major part of world power generation will be consumed with online data surveillance / storage and whacko ‘get rich schemes’ as bitcoin.
We do something, some small activity and that alone warrants a followup posting and texting and endless selfies, I’m slightly guilty re this blogging but its mostly me writing to myself, collecting useful material and pushing forward, developing my ideas.
We are losing the point of what life is about, endless consumerism, mindless ‘enjoying’ viewing, sampling and nothing beyond; browsing the immediate. A major ‘de-tech’ would do us all good. Admittedly i realise business demands connectivity, thank God I can choose my own level, I have the benefit of having practical work to perform in a very old fashioned manner,that cannot easily be displaced or altered.
Yesterdays radio news tells us Uber being floated has never made a profit and possibly will never generate a profit. Be mindful its costs are being covered and salaries, fees, fixed and variable costs being met; but all the same asking punters to put money in to something that on the face of it generates no return on capital is again just plain whacko! When things such as this are happening its time to eliminate exposure to stock market fluctuations. I likewise dread the American crash once trumps shenaigans and inability with Economic Management comes home to roost. That little old thing called debt, a self proclaimed ‘King of Debt’ should NOT be President and his denigration and belittling of overseas trading partners is crass beyond belief, but hey … its djt !
