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 […]

When A Typo Makes A Difference

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 17, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

You’ll have caught it in the news sometime recently, the hack on the DNCs mail server, and on Hillary Clinton herself, was caused by a typo. Instead of writing illegitimate someone wrote legitimate and possibly caused a phishing virus to embed itself in a computer, allowing access to all the information stored there. It could […]

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 […]

Not Exactly Tasteful

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 13, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I had many strange thoughts about Europe before I came here, and even addressed a few of them here in an early post. I remember asking whether European women shaved their pits or not, because I had heard that they did not and, as we all know, such things are considered unacceptable in the prime, […]

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.
