the internet is 30yrs old

12 Mar

london 10.56am 9.6C cloudy (forecast to rain heavily at about 11.30am) tuesday 2019

added. 11.12am light rain now.

i got an email from steve telling me of a freebie tonight. it is a  free truffle burger in brick lane. east london. i emailed him back to say i got this foot fracture and cant make it. much as i would like to. i am housebound till this foot gets better.

today google doodle celebrates 30yrs of the internet. i have only yesterday said how much i like the internet. though it has given rise to lots of fake news and spreading of hatred and fear. but you could argue that itself is not the reason for the spread, it is the people who uses it… and also for those who cannot keep a level head and notice fake news when they see it. perhaps it just reinforces your own prejudices, so that people find it easy to search and find anything that will confirm their prejudices. 

i would say on the whole, it is a good thing. and it is up to you to make good or bad use of it.  i thought it has been here longer than 30yrs. just goes to show  it has pervaded our lives so much that i had the impression  it has been here longer than it has.

    I´m old….

    Fake news or I just call it Desinformation you are absolutely right, you write and post in public. So you better deal with the good and bad consequences of that action.
