Me me me. Selfies and IntaShare! Viral videos and funny internet cats. Fail compilations and #’s.
Before we start I do not believe ANY brand or corporation truly wants to make the world a better place, without some kind of personal gain for the company, that said…….
Yes it is indeed the year 2014 as of the time of writing this piece. The people in my time, 2014 are not reading my blog. Most of the people who use internet today (25 April 2014, Cape Town, South Africa) are from North America, Europe, UK or Japan. If you are reading this in the future, I’m probably dead, if immortality potion gets invented tomorrow this blog will be embarrassing, lol. Almost as embarrassing as the current internet user. So I am writing this piece for people in the year 2114, when you read this one day on the HTML 5 historical internet back-up server I hope you will enjoy my take on the world in 2014, a hundred years ago exactly for you if you read this blog on 25 April 2114.
When I use the term INTERNET USER I do not include people who still buy DATA by the MegaByte or Gigabyte, future readers might not know what his means but to the most of the world the internet is a luxury. Yes we fight world hunger, aids, communism but do we try and get people free internet. NO! That would actually empower people. REVOLUTION! Most people buy data per byte either on their land phone line or on their mobile telephone. Also called a cell phone. But you might just call it a computer one day. You probably take one device everywhere that is connected to all your other SMART devices, I hope Samsung and Google wins the Smart race, or that Apple can become a little less evil…So Google is creating free internet for the third world, and it is called Project Loon. Meanwhile Apple is making luxury car radios, thanks Apple!
Yes people in 2014 are still afraid of freedom. Freedom for woman (middle-east), freedom for animal (Dolphins, Whales, Fur Trade, RHINO’s), freedom of love (gay rights) and freedom of science. No, I am not going to add freedom of religion, it is religion that causes 49% of this worlds problems. Another 30% is created by greed and the last 21% is a mix of ignorance, hunger and drug addiction.
You future readers might not understand my argument against religion because you are probably all atheists. Jipppeee! You probably use reason and logic to sort out your problems. Also you know how truly lucky we humans are to be in existence. Not because of some super god but because of something greater. Something without a reason to exist except existence itself. We are all recycled stardust, billions of years in the making.
WE are the UNIVERSE expressing itself as human for a very short time…
Ok so I am no Carl Sagan, Darwin or Einstein but it is clear to me that the more people we get on the internet the faster the world will become a better place. Knowledge is power. But most companies are more concerned with stock price and share dividends then really focussing on true innovation. What is the bare minimum our clients want to make them happy? I do believe the partnership between Android, Google and Samsung has become a powerhouse. As Samsung creates new crazy mods and improvements Android is right there taking advantage of it. Even more impressive is that Android is an OPEN system, meaning they run the same program on multiple devices with different hardware specs per device. So if Sony innovates so does Android, if LG innovates so does Android, this semi-open system creates amazing technology. With complex coding some bugs are expected, not finding a bug does not mean it is not there, somewhere in the code waiting till a small error is created in the sea of coding used in modern day cellular operating systems, not to mention apps.
Whether you are an Android or Apple user you have to admit that most of the services you use are owned by Google. Google Maps, Gmail, G-Chat, YOUTUBE, Google Search, Google Image Search, Google Translate, Google Drive, AdSense, Google Analytics. So readers from the year 2114, one hundred years from now, I hope the world has become a connected and interactive world where sharing is embraced and privacy protected. With technology like 3D printing, Stem Cell research, Automated Cars, Mars Missions, Regenerative Gene Therapy and so many more on the horizon the 100 years between 2014 and 2114 can rather be spent doing science, improving the world through the internet and not by fighting about who has the correct archaic sky god. If there is a god he will love the scientific, for they do not fear the truth or the fear of truth. Follow the truth to its deepest form, investigate every problem with logic and reason and remove greed. Is this sounding like The New World order to you? Maybe it is. In the new world we will have peace, and all creatures on earth will respect each other not on an ancient teaching from a dusty inaccurate book but from the truth, and nothing but the truth. May a man that questions not be turned down, let he who seeks reason and purpose in a scientifically minded fashion not be called a fool for his failures, but rather see these failures as steps that get you closer to the truth.
So Youtube is the second biggest search engine, after Google. Have you ever wanted to tell someone to search something on the internet and used the words BING IT! No, but Microsofts media department want you to say that. Bing iT! LOL.
I’m closing with this. Apple’s internet program called Safari has a search bar in the top right corner, guess for what! Google Search.
BOOM, Google is there. Deep Mind is an artificial intelligence program that painted a digital picture of a CAT after it watched the most popular videos on YouTube. Deep Mind will learn everything, and then when he reaches the threshold of every Youtube video, blog and FaceBook update, maybe even every text message ever digitally recorded. Will Deep Mind save us from our hateful, bigot invested religiously twisted society. Will it help us love? Or will it become our ultimate evil friend?
No I believe Deep Mind will help us LOVE. Yes that program will learn that above all love is what unites us. When someone kills the one we love we want to see them bleed. After the first homo-sapien killed the other, society wanted to revenge the fallen. Forgiveness is not easy. Nelson Mandela died last year, in 2013. He wanted the world to forgive, to love. He united the world for a few months in 1995 as the first black president of South Africa. Africa………….
So readers one hundred years from now in 2114, I hope Deep Mind has started helping the wounds of our society heal. And that Googles project Loon has given FREE internet to the whole world. That Apple becomes that funky trend setter it used to be. Who cares if you change the body of your phone? Steve changed stuff FAST! We need guts and glory, not just great advertising campaigns…..car radio, seriously.
You might see this Logo (that I designed on Adobe Illustrator on the 22nd of April 2014). Deep Mind use it to symbolise the new world. He might add to the supposed Neon symbolism.
The small diamond represent the value of true knowledge based on true reason, the heart represents love. The heart touches the inner triangle which means it is maintained by knowledge. The outer triangle represents unity. Not unity, like the whole world is on country unity, no unity in heart. Unity in the shared humanity, we are all human, equal no one worth more than another. We all build society together no matter if you are a builder or a doctar, a mechanic or a woman. Your sexuality does not change your value or social standing. I go sleep safely tonight in my warm bed while millions sleep on the street, every night, all around the world in 2014. Cherish the ones you love, life is short and always have fun even when it is at its hardest.
So come back for more future readers and enjoy my blog about the past.Come back for more.
Iggy Azalea … Google it. Or ask Deep Mind what I’m talking about. Deep Mind it! Or Go Deeper!
One potato 10 straws, the power of science! It is a video on youtube you will never find, if you find it share the link in the comments.
What would Deep Mind or Siri draw after watching this video?
