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.

Now in September, I’m where I wanted to be in March.
Spent some time updating my article on unsafe characters, once again current with latest IETF specification.
Just realized that “Neo” is an anagram for “One”. As in, “he is the One” (The Matrix).
To get VLC app to load all songs (including subfolders), go to Preferences ▸ Show All ▸ Playlist ▸ Subdirectory behavior ▸ Expand.
Switching from PhotoShop to Affinity Photo is one of the most liberating work-related things I've done in 20 years.
