I find it heartening that t the Inventory of the Internet, values the Democratic impulse more than the invention itself.

T here was a time I loved the web for it’s democratizing value. The world’s biggest library open 24/7. It’s obvious that has changed. Not to mention we paid tax dollars for it and corps have now taken it over and we are charged again. Oh the joys of rampant capitalism and govt run by money grubbers!

Love cats. Gadgets. Reading history, physics, Natural History to Brian Eno. Enjoy Politics to keep my sense of humor sharp. Play country blues guitar. Amateur photographer of bugs. Think I can write (like all of us do). Mountains, Deborah, Everett keep me sane for the most part. Love the Internet, this wild, crazy, frontier that informs, democratizes us. Never thought I would be witness and participant in a culture and world changing technology, but here I am.
