Twitter Links: Hitting Rock Bottom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

For some sites, security is of the utmost importance, and that is a good thing. As we read, almost every single week of the year, about another breach, about more phishing, about millions of e-mail addresses, social security numbers, names and address, bank account details being stolen from their supposedly secure repositories on a server […]

Claiming Freedom Of The Press

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 19, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Freedom of the press is one thing, but the freedom of the reader often gets second place, when it even comes to mind.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 10, 2014 in News & Opinion |

For those who have campaigned, complained or sworn against the use of digitalized security software on their music, preventing them from either playing it on certain types of systems or copying it for personal use – because no one copies music to sell it on to others online – perhaps your fears are indeed becoming […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 4, 2014 in News & Opinion |

There are many cases presented against marriage between two people of the same gender, many based on tradition, most on the Bible, some on personal feelings that it is just wrong.

If you think that Google had unusual problems in Germany over filming all the different streets to create Google Street View, whereby they had to create software to remove all recognizable faces, then you don’t know Germany all that well.

Can We Just Let Them Grow Up?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 10, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Fashion is one thing, but do we need to force our fashion habits and desires on to younger women and children who are clearly too young to have formed their own fashion tastes yet? There is something almost perverse about seeing children as young as six dressed up as adults, parading themselves in clothing which […]
