Thinks on Things

A gathering of ponderings…

Web 2.0 101

I keep hearing about this Web 2.0 more and more lately. I decided to do a little bit of research on my own to find out what it is. So here’s some of my superfast research into this new technology that I don’t quite comprehend but aparently use anyway without knowing it…

A talk with the man himself Tim O’Reilly on What is Web 2.0?

And if that didn’t mean anything to us simple folk…

Really amazingly well done educational video explains a little history of Web 2.0 and how it is becoming more simple by growing more complex. It is the Internet: by us, for us.

A second excellent brief synopsis in plain English defining Web 2.0 and its principle elements.

Really cool interactive graphic representation of what links look like in the Web. Just enter your own search and it opens up automatically.

Super quick and easy definitions of some buzzwords.

An entertaining video interpretation of the future of Web 2.0…

Stress

Straining relationships
Working 2 jobs
Volunteering for 2-3 other programs
Attempting to finish moving in 3 days
Attempting to finish fixing the new place in 3 days
Parking ticket Thursday
Speeding ticket Saturday
Citation for amber lights on top of car Saturday
Headache for 2 days
Lack of sleep

There is much more to write about stress in general but honestly I’m just plumb-tuckered out and sick of explaining things to people who don’t really care beyond hoping they aren’t causing me more stress… Yea, that’s all I have time for tonight. Sorry, folks… that’s if there really is anyone out there. Which actually makes only a little difference anyway as this is simply a place for me to Think on Things. You should feel so priviledged to know even a small part of it.

Ratings/Quizzes

There has been a recent flocking to the growing popularity of these online quizzes. They are simple and easy to take, and sometimes rather funny! I gave my shot at a couple:

My body is worth $4640 if sold to science…

Thinks on Things= $2400 (Wanted! For the Auspicious Digestion of a Likeable Pigeon)

Thinks on Things= Rated PG (for mentioning ‘sex’ x2 and ‘shoot’ x1)

I am only 37% Geek and 0% Stupid!

And of course, I have an 83% chance of surviving a Zombie Apocalypse…

Reality bites

Vacations work, but only temporarily. Once they’re done reality hits home again. Strange how that works…

So I just got back from a road trip to Chicago. It was a grand ol’ time and I would enjoy returning. But as “all good things must come to an end…” What idiot said that?! Why do good things have to end? If they have to end then are they still good? If they are really good then do they ever really end? Tangent…

Chicago was fun but not long enough. It allowed me to empty a load of stress for a while but now everything is back to it’s normal hectic self again. Jobs. Relationships. Responsibilities. Blah blah blah.

But there has to be hope in it all doesn’t there?

“Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Mathew 6:34
