The Eternal Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 31, 2014 in Internet |

Does anyone really believe that the Internet never forgets? I am starting to doubt it, not so much because I’m sure that things simply disappear and can never be found again, but because somethings which I have created have gone away. Or, maybe not quite gone away, but are now coming back with a 404, […]

Minor Additions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 30, 2014 in Publishing |

Some people may consider them major changes, for me they are simply enhancements to the service my publishing company provides, and information which has been missing from the website so far. Any publishing company which wishes to survive needs not only to sell books, but also to gain new authors, new works to keep the […]

Headlines

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 29, 2014 in Internet |

If you’re looking for a newspaper headline which has absolutely everything, you can’t go too wrong with this gem from the Daily Mail’s internet site: Obama’s high school pot dealer who he thanked for the ‘good times’ was beaten to death with a hammer by his gay lover. Who needs to read any further? Love […]

Quick Humor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 28, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Just when I thought Twitter was starting to get boring and my small circle of people I follow had lost all their inspiration: That said, it is sometimes hard to find Tweets which manage to hit the spot. Most of them are fairly run-of-the-mill or, to be perfectly honest, downright boring. I don’t want to […]

Keeping Score

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 27, 2014 in Personal |

Initially I was worried that the target I had set was too high. Looking through the lists it seemed as if many other people were trying for a far smaller number, something easily within their grasp. Then I saw a few who had opted for considerably more, and even some who had made good headway […]

Review: On The Nature Of The Gods

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 26, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Accepting something merely because it has always been that way – whether in a religious sense or any other – has always been the easiest thing a person can do. Discussion, on the other hand, is difficult, especially when the discussion takes place between people of different opinions, different beliefs, different cultural backgrounds. To understand […]

Playing With Figures

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 25, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

A while back I wrote about statistics and how they can be used to influence people, even when the figures are used in such a manner as to create the wrong impression. Now, I am not saying that this example will necessarily create a certain impression amongst readers, but it is set up in such […]

Hidden News

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 24, 2014 in Publishing |

Amid all the highly publicized news from Amazon that they are thinking about using drones to deliver, and that they are considering using the vast amount of data they have gathered on customers to advance order, one small but interesting item of news seems to have slipped through the net. It is, however, one which […]

Killing Support

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 23, 2014 in Internet |

Some people are just in it for the money, some for pleasure and the money. I can understand the need to make a profit when producing and selling something, no matter what it is, but there have to be limits when it comes to supporting your customers, and by customers I mean both those who […]

Words On A Page

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 22, 2014 in Personal |

I guess you could call it a bug, or a sudden flaring interest in communication, perhaps even a form – if you do it too much – of stalking: I understand the fetish for writing letters. I understand, having penned my little request to Simon & Schuster yesterday, how some people can get caught up […]
