If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
all over this land
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between
my brothers and my sisters
all over this land

How great is it that there is a rivalry going between Bezos and Musk over space travel? This is the best kind of rivalry to have. In this case, we all win. #StuffMariaThinks

This is really strange.

This! Everything, I love about the internet summed up by David Bowie. This is the interview where he talks about how he went into music because it was subversive, but now the subversive artistic medium is the internet. ""It carries the flag of being subversive and possibly rebellious and chaotic and nihilistic,"

Yes, absolutely, the internet is a tool, you can use it to sell things,  work, or look up information but it is also an artistic medium, one which the artist can engage with his audience in a new and amazing way. And as he says, the potential of the internet is unimaginable, we are just now, only on the very cusp of all the things that will come. 

For me that is what is so exciting about the internet, not anything that has happened up till now, but the idea of all the amazing things that have yet to come.

Wow, Paxman was a naive, non-visionary and it shows that Bowie WAS one of the visionaries and realising the potential for the internet being much more than a book ordering system or news-site.

Mirror

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful ‚
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.

Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

Digitally Exploring the Cyber Universe
Introduction

 I have been digitally exploring the online Universe since 1997.  I am using Google+ as a blog as well as a creative outlet

  • I enjoy making memes
  • I try and write funny stories
  • I write about technology
  • I write about books
  • I like meeting new Plussers from all over the world and engaging with them
  •  I am actively  trying to help create a peaceful global community on Google+
Follow me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/maria.sommerfield
A little bit about me you might like to know:

I am a mother of three small children and a wife of over 10 years; this is one of the most important parts of my identity and while I don't often write about my family this does not mean they are not an extremely important part of my life.  I have a degree in computer science, and am a certified systems administrator.  I love technology and the internet, and have been actively participating in social media before anyone even came up with that term.  I am a very avid reader, and I am fairly athletic.  I enjoy running and yoga as well as any outdoor activity.  I study mycology as a hobby and have been a ballroom dancer for many years, although lately I don't have a lot of time for dancing.   I have recently become a vegan and am experimenting with a plant based diet.

I do my best to be engaging and I really value all my readers.  Thank you for checking out my profile, I hope to meet you in cyberspace.
