So, Where Did You Want To Go Again?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 16, 2017 in Internet |

This is probably not where you wanted to end up, in the eternal loop of the Matrix. You typed something completely different into your browser, or set a bot to do the searching for you, and expected to find something else. At worst, you’d have thought, a 404 page. At best, well, perhaps you were […]

Myth Of The Fat Hacker

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 14, 2017 in Internet |

I think it was the Donald who claimed that there is – or is not, hard to keep up – a fat hacker sitting somewhere in Russia who concentrates on disrupting things. Sometimes this fat hacker is good, when he or she hacks other people, sometimes bad. Either way, the hacker is clearly fat, because […]

Donald Trump Challenges Barack Obama

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 26, 2016 in Internet |

A British newspaper recently claimed that one Tweet from Donald J Trump has been mocked by other Twitter users. If they had been keeping up with the news, and with Twitter, they’d have seen that every Tweet is mocked, and not just by other Twitter users; also by the news media, internationally on social and […]

The New, Younger, Fashionable Doctor Who

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 25, 2016 in Internet |

You could be forgiven for thinking, taking only the Tweet from the BBC as your reference, that Doctor Who has been reinvented as an American super hero in tight underpants and a mask. Perhaps they are trying to jump on the bandwagon which is Marvel Comics and the success of their super hero films, well, […]

Searching For The Phantom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 24, 2016 in Internet |

One of the jokes about searching for criminals of recent years has been the screenshot of a news announcer next to a phantom image which had a surprising similarity to him. It highlighted to problems police have with creating an image of assailants through the artistry of a victim’s description and the skills of a […]

Where A Typo Shouldn’t Be

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 19, 2016 in Internet |

A few days ago we saw a whole mess of Twitter comments, and newspaper reports, about a typo from Donald Trump. In a less-than-well-thought-out Tweet he used the (non) word unpresidented rather than the (real) word unprecedented when blowing hot air about China intercepting a drone in international waters. I wrote about it here and, […]

How To Disappear On The Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 18, 2016 in Internet |

I read an article on how to remove yourself from the Internet today which, at the start, gave the impression that deleting everything about yourself on the Internet is remarkably easy, and only takes a few clicks of the mouse to achieve. Further on in the article, it became clear that this is not the […]

From Hacker Who Is Asking A Question

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 15, 2016 in Internet |

I get all sorts of mails and messages, some serious, some amusing, many straight into the spam bucket, some downright, well, you know what I mean. I tend to know at a glance what someone is up to, whether they are serious or not, whether there is a scam behind what they’re saying or a […]

Selfies: The Best Arrangement

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2016 in Internet |

I was trying to find something to take my mind of the present problems in the United States, and avoid the constant post-mortem of this party, that slogan, those actions, which are coursing through the Internet at the moment – the blame passing and so on – in favor of something a touch more inspiring.

Vine: A Strange Glimmer Of Hope?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 28, 2016 in Internet |

It didn’t take long. I wrote and posted by last on the death of Vine with the idea that another company could split the video channel from Twitter and make it a separate, successful entity, and less than twenty minutes later a possibility looms. Not, perhaps, that which many would hope for, but a possibility; […]
