so if i spend my time wondering why and how and what for is the world of technology and information? and does that constitute a critique and therefore critical thought of why and what for? Where are we going and how will we communicate and what will the images and persons we create in relation to this world mean...

watching sci fi movies, reading sci fi and discussing memory, communication, the power involved in who can and who can't,

i wonder where it's going and who's leading anyway?

we lose our sense of place when we forget to keep our feet on the ground and our eyes open, thinking about why and who we are....

and so i shall try to resolve(?) some of these issues.... but probably not, at least i will understand or not...

i think about trees and flowers and probably life and love ... so connected to nature.... unlike sex and violence and nonlife associated to some degree with computers and the electronic environment.... will images be able to convey these feelings... and thoughts... no but how will we change to adapt to that...

critical thought is not something i am very familiar with ... except that what i know seems to encompass and relate to the way i think sometimes and therefore maybe this group, discussions, musings, readings, watchings, etc... will raise more questions... if we ever found the answer what would be the point, eh?

a constant state of change in this page - will reflect some of how I think and feel... and function... in these realms...

these pages are for me and the group i am working with ....

they are not necessarily easy to read- i hope the organization is clear but something about aesthetics and boring web sites/pages ... excitement and innovation and confusion maybe it will hurt your eyes and make you think ... maybe you will become frustrated at the lack of accessibility to what i have to say (then again maybe you don't give a possible expletive and at this point it is still your choice). and realize what it means not to be able to access the information you may want even though you don't even know what it is.... sounds vaguely familiar... something about indecency... abortion... comstock... telecommunications... pornography... women... children...

just a brief thought - if the gov't/congress thinks the fuckin' Internet is so bad, the "information highway" is full of garbage and pornography and sex (aside- is sex bad? or is violence? which would you rather have tonight?) and yet those fools up there on capitol hill are trying to put a computer in every classroom and library in America. wow. Doesn't that disturb you?
