Twitter: Cheating The Figures With Followers

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 14, 2014 in Internet |

I’ve recently noticed what is for me a new trend on Twitter: people or companies who follow at random and expect a follow back, then, when they get it, promptly unfollow. The people tend to be those who offer certain services, such as a mass of new followers on Twitter, Facebook and so on, for […]

I Just Couldn’t Put It Down!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 13, 2014 in Publishing |

A great deal of hard work goes into producing a book, more than some people imagine, and just as much goes into marketing it in the hope of selling every single copy printed. One of the major ways in which books are publicized today is through the Internet, and that goes especially for independent and […]

Spock: Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

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

Censorship is a strange thing, especially when it is political censorship. Take, as an example, the decision by the Chinese censor to remove all references to Vladimir Putin placing a warming blanket around the shoulders of Peng Liyuan, wife of the Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, to protect her from the rain. Clearly, for the Chinese, […]

Twitter: How Many Friends Make Life Interesting?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 10, 2014 in Internet |

Have you ever tried to hold a decent conversation with more than twenty people at one time? I can imagine that any such attempt is doomed to failure: everyone wants to have their say, to get their words in wherever they can, to be a part of the whole and, thus, the conversation becomes more […]

Selfies: Even The Youngest Child

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 8, 2014 in Internet |

How many of your friends and relations post photographs of their children on the Internet? I’m fairly sure most would say all of them do: there is something cute about a child and, of course, our child is far cuter than all the others. As proof, here’s the latest photograph of a child doing something […]

After the Three Rs There’s….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 29, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

We all know the three Rs, and often stumble when getting to the last in the list: how is that an R? Well, there are other lists of words carefully abbreviated to make them easy to remember too and, as with so many things of a similar nature, it isn’t always easy to make the […]

The People Behind Real Content Management

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

In the beginning I believed that people combed through the content of Social Media web sites looking for those images and messages which should never have seen the light of day. I thought that there was an office somewhere that, filled with cubicles, had hundreds of people working to ensure that social networks remained clean, […]

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 […]

Just A Matter Of Timing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 18, 2014 in Internet |

Timing can be everything, a split second too late, or too early, and a whole creation could disappear down the plug hole. Anyone who has tried to prepare and serve the perfect souffle can tell you about it! Sometimes, though, timing is more a matter of coincidence than anything else, a matter of two things […]

Start By Learning To Spell

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Apparently there is an old saying: if you can’t beat them, join them. Sorry, but I can’t do that in this case, I just can’t. It is something which has annoyed me for such a long time that I simply overlook it now – well, mostly – automatically assume a meaning for what has been […]
