Breaking News: Top Story Of The Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 25, 2014 in Internet |

There are some posts I write where I think: this is it, this will get people talking. Others seem almost to be place-fillers, something which was on my mind or which happened to interest me for a moment or two but no more than that where I imagine they will be seen but hardly noticed. […]

Twitter: Have I Got An Offer….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 20, 2014 in Internet |

Remember that bridge I was offering to sell a short while ago? Well, it seems that I have competition for the attention of the most gullible people out there. How much is your Twitter feed worth? Or is it worth anything at all? I’m not going to try, I don’t want to know what some […]

Twitter: Making Sure We Never Forget

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 16, 2014 in Internet |

There’s nothing like the Internet to remind us of things which are happening, things which have already happened. Google may well be inundated with requests to remove old stories which cast a bad light on someone, but that doesn’t apply to everywhere else. What you can’t find in a normal search, someone still has in […]

Overplaying The Haters

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 5, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

Love them or hate them, the so-called Haters are here to stay no matter what we may think of them, no matter what we may do to prevent their trolling, their abundance. Practically any web site you care to mention has its own fair share of them, filling up the unmoderated comments wherever they can, […]

Selfies. When You’re Not Alone

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 1, 2014 in Internet |

Is a selfie still a selfie when there are other people within the frame? I’m sure we all know of the self-portraits taken in various toilets around the globe where someone is there, in the background, doing their business and, of course, what has been called the Most Famous Selfie In The World with a […]

Oh, You Foolish Few

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

Not so long ago I wrote about how Tumblr is becoming the latest thieves site: shoplifters posting their swag pictures for all to see and admire. Those on Tumblr, however, clearly have a little more in their heads than other people, such as a woman in West Franfort, Illinois who decided to post a selfie […]

Losing That Precious Sense Of Humor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 22, 2014 in Internet |

I am constantly amazed at how some people can find humor in the most ridiculous things, but completely lose it when that humor could be seen to refer to them, or to something that they are connected to. A perfect example is this post – by Mara Mascaro – showing the difficulties of producing items […]

Copyright: There’s Something You Haven’t Quite Understood

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 21, 2014 in Internet |

All this talk about copyright, the commercial use of photographs, photo theft and the like reminds me a little of the misconceptions over commercial use of individual images by certain social media web sites we frequent and the means some people go to, to try to protect their property. I am thinking specifically about sites […]

Blogging: Evolution Is The Way Forwards

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 19, 2014 in Internet |

It’s fair to say that after more than four years this blog has gone beyond the creation stage. It has a firm and relatively stable place on the Internet, frequent and regular visitors and a relatively good ranking against other, similar sites. With creation completed, it is once again time to look at how it […]

WordPress Security: Nice Try Spammer

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 11, 2014 in Internet |

Whilst the number of spam comments has drastically dropped thanks to my WordPress settings and Akismet, there are still one or two which come through and hit the approval queue – in the spam folder – just in case. This is a good thing, even if almost everything that appears there does simply get deleted. […]
