DESCRIPTION: A TOOL WHICH HELPS US IN DOOMSDAY
THEME: THE IMPORTANCE OF BUILDING AND DESINING A WEBSITE.
I was having a pleasant dinner, last night, with my family. With many years of experience of internet together with predictions of end of the world – from the old days when we were using other systems, because there was practically minimum access to the internet. One of them asked «well… so… why do we need the internet?» and there was a moment of embarrassment, because none of us had an easy answer. It’s even worse for me, because I am writing a new book, which will be published in December. This time it isn’t about business; it’s meant to explain to people why and how it’s really worthwhile to use the internet to solve, seek information for the end of the world or doomsday. That seems easy; but it isn’t.
We are so overwhelmed with great news about what the internet has to offer that we are losing track of what we can really do with it. Does anyone really have the time to research online for doomsday? Or to access different sites? Or just have fun playing games?
Yes, it is convenient to search about the end of the world and all different interesting information about doomsday. But the information is so big, and the technologies so efficient, that the task becomes easy but needs logic whether you will believe or not. Yes, it is nice to be able to read a newspaper offline. But I prefer you to go online because it is more updated. And many newspapers do not provide adequate access to past histories.
Is there really a doomsday for December 2012? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon Yes, and it’s understandable. Things were simpler, information were much faster than any super-device available today. Even then there were too many people online for us to help.
Maybe some of the people would have liked the net to stay away, separate from the crowds of people. I never felt that way, nor did any of my online friends. We wanted the net to grow and expand according to our necessities, to open up to more to public. Now it is happening today, and we should learn to live with the consequences.
I believe there would be considerable improvement if everyone used some quiet time in the summer holidays to think about a simple but serious question. «What would happen if we weren’t study the doomsday? And if we are, what exactly are we trying to do?» From what we can see, nine tenths of the clutter online are caused by organizations and individuals who never asked themselves that question – or didn’t find the right answer.
