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 […]

Trump And The Buzzfeed Dossier

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2017 in News & Opinion |

If there wasn’t so much news at the moment, especially surrounding the President-elect of the United States, then we would just be reading about the weather and precious little else. Either that, or trying to struggle through stories about dogs, cats, and miraculous twins. And there we have a problem: there is so much news, […]

Harassment: Time To Fight Back

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 9, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

Another day, another clear-cut case of harassment. I could easily have written another hour, even another minute, and been correct. Harassment, in its many different forms, is all around us and it is all the time; not just sexual harassment but also harassment in the work place, because of political or religious beliefs, ethnic origins, […]

Two Year Old Miraculously Doesn’t Kill Twin

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 3, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

The Internet and news media have been playing on a short video which surfaced today. In it twins are seen playing in their room around a chest of drawers. Two of the drawers are open and a clear challenge to climb upon, and so both do. Any parent half within their wits will know exactly […]

When You See It: Happy New Year!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 1, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

I decided to seek out one of those generic new year images – fireworks and 2017 emblazoned across the photograph, that sort of thing – but the selection was rather limited. Sifting through what was on offer on Flickr, I found school buses, images of a foggy day in Beijing and policemen doing their jobs […]

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, […]

News Media And Terrorism: Verify First!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Yesterday evening a large lorry drove into a crowd of Christmas market visitors in Bremen. Latest reports say that twelve people died and about fifty were injured. I followed the news live on Twitter, and especially the news coming from those people so far away from the course of events that they could have no […]

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 […]
