Lost-Whisper

Yet another whisper lost.

Bleh

Today I took a really hard test… We were given a blank piece of paper and had to draw all the countries…

In other news, I upgraded Mint and Wordpress… So hopefully everything is running swell…? I am working on a new layout as well…

After looking at Mint, I have concluded that I am the only visitor to my site… Just kidding… We get a few unique hits every now and then, but I’m not that interesting of a person, so I can probably guess that my blog posts are lacking some depth as well…

I took some new photos: Red Flower ThingWhite Flower Thing![Blossoms] (http://farm1.static.flickr.com/210/446691755_87245fbd3f_t.jpg)

So there are a lot of new Web 2.0 apps out there. They all for tracking and stuff. I like to use them a bit, but I think most are going in the wrong direction. Some are for better advertising, but I think people should use it for like, “oh, I blogged about lunch and got a lot of hits, mabey I’m a good food reviewer… ” And then use the data to cement themselves into the web. But then there are people who look for what search terms found their site and try to blog more about that, find more sponsors, and get money. Sure, money is good and all, but as you can see, some people aren’t into that stuff (websites for money) it would be nice, but as you can tell by my sites, I’m not that concerned.

This is where my rant comes in; Many people now say “my business depends on my website.” This is a huge mistake for people. How can your business depend on data? A few years ago, (okay… mabey more than a few), if someone said that they would make money off of data stored on a hard drive, you would call them crazy. The data could be lost; it wasn’t tangible. But now, we see so many advantages, and people use it to get rich fast. This is a problem for the world because people spend hundreds to billions of dollars on things that don’t truly exist. You might be like, “well, google, myspace and youtube exist,” but if someone with the super keyboard hit delete, they would cease to exist. But then there is the argument about setting a house on fire. But now people pay for things on a hard drive, which I find crazy. Mabey I sound weird, but if I was selling a word on a piece of paper, then you would look at me like I’m crazy. So there’s a slight difference between doodles on a piece of paper and data on a hard drive, but hopefully you get where I’m coming from. I just get upset about people who are dependent on a web site for their lives. It’s not something you can hold in your hand. You are depending on something that could cease to exist at any moment. So yeah… There’s my stupid rant for today because of some of the rants about people losing everything because they were dependent on some web host. I could pull the plug on TyL at any time, and I wouldn’t have to worry. The people I host might, and I might have to worry about angry stalkers, but my wallet won’t take a plunge…
