Tales from the far-flung Faroes – BBC News

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/faroe_islands_postal_service

Finally an article this week worthy of sharing …

Sometimes, when I’m driving around this city I don’t really call home, I wonder if leaving my hometown was such a good idea. There was something I really enjoyed about growing up in a small inland town.. hills and treks to explore, adventures in the wilderness … sorta wilderness.. snowy winters when it would be 8 or 10 below zero outside and i could still go out in shorts and a tee shirt .. days spent extracting myself from the town and its people, wandering semi aimlessly in the hills and trails of some old forgotten gold mine town now nothing more than stone stumps in the dried inside grasses .. before we were over run by mobile phones or connectivity en-mass ..

Places like these, now seen in other photographers traveling blogs or NatGeo still being back to mind those beautiful peaceful memories of my childhood.

This endless consumption of our childhood souls by the ever growing ever consuming monster that has simplified yet overly complicated and controlled our lives through the advertised need and manipulation of our inherent desires to be connected yet lazy at the same time..

The digital detachment we have come to crave isolates us from the reality that your bare feet in the waters of the sea is how we came to be on this land .. by boat, float, on the back of a swimming goat… well possibly not a goat.. But still.. that would make for an interesting story.

Go out and explore.

BBC News: Tech Tent: Can facial recognition fit with a fair society?

Tech Tent: Can facial recognition fit with a fair society? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-44250952

I hear a lot of people complaining about facial recognition software.. it’s been in use here for many years now but only just starting to hit the media.

The ability for software to recognize has been around for a very long time.. remember back in the day when we used OCR .. yea .. well this is much the same thing really but more advanced.

Businesses have been using number plate recognition for a long time.. the reality is that it was never that big a jump to people. In advancing countries like China, cardless ATMs are trailed and popular .. using just your face and a mobile number.

Bio readers like finger print scanners have been around for decades, now commonplace on most recent mobile phones and other devices.

“Don’t worry, your personal data is secure” … Lol .. try googling your own name .. or even a picture of yourself and see what comes up.

We gave up out rights to privacy when we decided we wanted social media and instant communication, and we wanted it for free… honestly companies don’t give anything for free.. there’s always a catch.. like targeted marketing … think Facebook is free lol no no it’s not. It’s a giant data mining company making an income from advertising and using their mined data to do so.

So why are you so worried about facial recognition again ?

Forward marches the future. One we can not control.

So relax.. enjoy the ride… it’s free .. and don’t forget to smile.

BBC News: Syria air strikes: US still ‘locked and loaded’ for new chemical attacks

Syria air strikes: US still ‘locked and loaded’ for new chemical attacks – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-43771840

Dear America… save yourself. Get rid of that idiot in power before a country like Russia truly gets fed up and throws you some in return.

Within the global scope of things, your struggle for dominance will be your downfall. Look at history for great examples of that.

Make America grate again is what’s going on.

Have some self respect.

Get educated.

Sometimes.. on those raining dull image-culling days… one has to listen.

 

 


This one’s for the Smurf. lol

 

Happy Weekends weirdos 🙂
