A Moment of Clarity

Finally, after seven years of working online.. a moment of clarity.

It all seems so clear now: your blog is an extension of yourself, a digital representation of your very being. Online, your site is you, revealing your interests, personality, intelligence, wisdom, and anything else that may be deduced from various levels of inquiry. Whether you realize it or not, your website is more than a well-presented database, it is your virtual self, your virtual existence in the infinite realms of cyberspace.

Although I may utterly fail at communicating this profound realization with you, I see it now, ever so clearly. At this point in time, the Internet is still in its infancy, limited by currently available technologies. As computers become more powerful and broadband becomes more common, the Web will evolve into a living, breathing virtual reality of time and space. Everything existing within the physical, tangible world will simultaneously be represented in cyberspace.

Eventually, websites will assume a realistic, three-dimensional quality and function like video games or interactive movies. Content will more than likely remain the same (we will still be human, after all), however the vehicle through which we consume content online is being transformed into a dynamic, interactive flux of multimedia technologies. As those technologies continue to improve, the extent to which the Web will immerse our senses while surfing will continue to increase.

With the future in mind, it is easy to scoff at the current state of the Internet. We have what.. Ajax? Flash? Social sites? Twitter? You name it, the latest fads of the day utterly pale in comparison to the omnipresent digital goodies of tomorrow. Imagine, if you will, the omnipresent availability of infinite information delivered via artificially intelligent virtual reality. Anything and everything — music, video, books, blogs, news — will be available instantly from anywhere in the world.

Thoughts
Watching. Waiting. Praying.
Got all of my free WordPress plugins updated for imminent WP 5.6 in early December. Pro plugin updates currently in the works.
7G Firewall now integrated into BBQ Firewall (free version). Pro version soon ;)
macOS Big Sur update complete. So far no crazy issues. Except TextEdit, which is completely screwed up and unusable. Replaced with free BBEdit.
Got so sick of macOS’ annoying “red dot” that I had to remove System Prefs from the dock. Come on Apple you can do better.
Beginning development of an Nginx version of 7G Firewall.
Happy Birthday to Perishable Press, celebrating 15 years online! :)
