We’ve heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.

The Internet is a telephone system that’s gotten uppity.

In our Web 3.0 world, as we share our identities so publicly with everyone else, standing out from the crowd, raising one’s voice against collective conventionality, is becoming increasingly difficult.

To tweet or not to tweet… that is the question. Thought-provoking questions from The Economist…

Does society benefit when we share personal information online? Or do social networks prompt us to publish unhealthy amounts of personal data, while little enriching our lives? Author Andrew Keen and journalism professor Jeff Jarvis lead the arguments in our debate.

Once Facebook goes public, the party’s over, right? Less innovation and more kowtowing to Wall Street, no? Maybe. Then again, maybe not.

3 Things That Will Change After Facebook’s IPO, And 2 Things That Won’t

Sooo… Because I’m interested in business & technology Google thinks I’m a man?! What does Google Think About You? I could change it in their Ad Preference Manager, but I think I’ll just let them keep thinking I’m a boy.

Interesting enough as it is, but the sting operation he was a part of cost Google millions.

Funny How? Like a Clown? I was told by relatives this past weekend that I was funny again. Apparently the physical and emotional stresses of my more recent past knocked my funny bone out of place. They are right though, lately I’ve felt like doing cartwheels at the most in-opportune times. That might not seem like much, but that’s quite impressive for someone who has suffered from arthritis across her body for almost exactly a decade. In fact, it’s been about 3 months since I’ve had pain medication. Since the day I started on pain medication, I haven’t been able to comfortably go a day without it - some days no pills would have meant not leaving the house.

Is it mere coincidence my level of pain has changed so drastically following a positive change in my work situation and addition of some incredible people who have (fairly) recently entered my life? Nope. I didn’t fully realize how stressed out and unhappy I was until I started tasting the contrast “happy” brings.

I have never gotten to this level of personal on the internet, but I need to shout from the mountain tops and we don’t have the literal version in my part of Texas. Too few of us give full credit to the strong tie between emotional stress and physical health. If you are suffering from chronic pain/fatigue, it could be that all you need to do is change your situation and/or the people in your life… maybe more funny ones. Like clown funny. :)
