What it means to me to be able to work around Web constraints

My social Network on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter...

To begin with before finding the solution to web constraints here, posting to this blog was long and zemanta-less. Since I have regained use of Twitter I realize that there is a network of tech articles that were becoming invisible to me without access to Twitter. Then there was the easy contact with my Facebook contacts.

This all may seem a bit esoteric to readers of this blog, but my life, in its current “retired from active employment” state, has become more and more connected with reading what’s going on in the wider world and adding my own “two cents” about that. In that the vital part of my life this blog has become.

Web constraints make for a weblife that is dull, less animated, and alienating.

Freedur has liberated my blog and given me access to Facebook and Twitter in China

Freedur (freedur.com) is some kind of vpn service from the US. It is cheaper than expressvpn.com and at least it was installable on my ghosted Windows 7 platform.

So here we are with vastly speeded up access to wordpress.com, zemanta‘s blogging service working and addedd access. I believe that I am now anonymous when surfing and surfing seems visibly faster.

Maybe you want to think about God’s works!

I’ve been looking at the image in this link to the Astronomy Picture of the Day.

I’ve been posting some of my thoughts about God on Twitter and elsewhere. So it seemed to me a beneficial coincidence that a “tweet” by Rachel Maddow led me to the image link above.

Then when I got here to post Zemanta offered me the image on the right here.

Some would have us believe that evocative images are proof that God is the First Cause of Nature, or something like that. All I think of is that homo sapiens does some pretty startling things to get those images to us, just like that. Including delivering the Internet and WWW with all the words and images we can find there every day.
