Education: Is This Our World?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 23, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’ve seen quite a few videos on YouTube recently where a television presenter has interviewed ordinary people on the street, asking them a series of easy general knowledge questions. The answers have been, to put it mildly, disappointing. Then I also spent some time reading through lists of Tweets, Facebook updates, Yahoo Questions and similar, […]

Bad News Sells Better

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 18, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Fake news is in the news, but not all fake news makes it to the forefront, not when it comes to highly thought-of and well established concerns who have been in the business of reporting for many years, rather than just having had a Twitter account since last June. This form of fake news, however, […]

The Problem With Banning Fake News

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 15, 2016 in News & Opinion |

After a certain amount of pressure from outside, it looks as if Facebook might consider reacting to the number of fake news stories propagated on its servers, some of which are claimed to have influenced the recent presidential election in the United States. Google has also indicated that such an action might follow from their […]

USA: The Media Post-Mortem

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 13, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s going to be a very long time before we have this election – both the campaign and the results – out of the news headlines. The coming two months until the inauguration are going to be full of what could have been, what might be, what will be. There are going to be accusations […]

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; […]

Vine: Another One Bites The Dust

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

Perhaps it was just too good to last: Vine, the short video / film platform which changed the lives of many people throughout the world is condemned to the archives. Twitter, faced with problems, decided recently to ditch one of its popular attractions, and give up the battle against YouTube and other video hosting services, […]

Spammers: Got To Love Them!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 20, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Most of the spam I receive, and delete without a second thought, on this blog – and through my mail account – tends to be either nothing but links without explanation, or an attempt to sell me something – a commodity or service – which no one in their right mind needs. Now and then, […]

Beyonce: Making Your Ears Bleed

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 19, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It can happen to anyone, a slight mis-step and something goes wrong. For Beyonce, at her recent concert, it was an earring apparently caught in her ponytail which ripped her ear and then bled. She, of course, continued despite the injury and has earned both praise and some vitriol as a result. And, of course, […]

Secure Servers: The Sweet Irony

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

Probably everyone in the United States now knows that WikiLeaks – a theoretically impartial whistleblower website dedicated to leaking government and business documents and information – has been posting countless mails from and to Hillary Clinton for the last few weeks, the bulk of which has been incredibly boring and tells us nothing new, nothing […]
