Why?

Why is it that the College dropouts have success? Facebook? Microsoft?

Names everyone knows. Even Apple. But the people behind them are behind big nasty companies.

They speak cooperate speak, not English. Then we have nice friendly companies like Getglue and Dailybooth, who are properly qualified.

The difference? You’ll actually enjoy the people who works’ products more than these evil fat companies.


Like is kinda like boring now

The work like has boomed on Facebook and onto nearly every other website in existence. Although, the word ‘like’ is getting boring. Plus i’m really getting a little narked on “liking” everything. Although, some lovely websites have done some alternatives to this. If you’re making a website, try and use a thesaurus and pick a better word than ‘like’, for example there is ‘love’, ‘smile’, ‘thumbs up’ and many many more! Just think!

One example is the popular website “Formspring” where users ask each other questions. Recently they added the “Smile” button, which basically acts in the same function as liking stories on Facebook, although the alternative verb makes a lot more thought go into actually pressing that button, instead of the drone of “like”, “like”, “like”.

What are your thoughts on this?

To live and forget

People today don’t know when to live and forget. We let go important things like our government but complain about others.

I think we shouldn’t forget important mistakes, and ones that we can live with is fine. We all make mistakes.

Home of the future

I would want a home of the future to not be 100% controlled by computers. Why? Well, I could make a virus to unravel the toilet paper constantly and make Tesco deliver it constantly. It would be funny, but annoying. Also, I don’t like the layout. I’d like movable walls where I could rearrange the rooms easily and lock them back. Yeah, some things would be nice to be connected. I’d have an internet TV, and controllable heating, but i’d like to cook. It’d be nice and having a computer to do it for you is lazy. Plus, I’d get bored.

Also, me being a programmer, what happens if there’s a bug? I’d love easter eggs like making the “personal assistant” say silly things :”)

Have fun,

Joe


What would I like to be remembered for?

I would like to be remembered for making things better. I know it’s a little too big thing to say right now, i’d want my own company which would make things and help people. This would mean stuff like software to make lives better, hardware to make your computer use even less energy, services to provide green energy and other services for the computer understanding of many concepts (a la Wikipedia without the big blah!) and also with the profit, I would create a charity-like thing but people would be paid to help the world become a much lovely place.

I hope by the time I die (horrible to say I know), I know I died making a difference (if we all don’t die in 2012).

Please note: I cheated, but i’m ill and I don’t know how well I at the time this is live. I actually made this last night! Chow!


What three things are you most thankful for?

  1. Being alive and kicking, so many people aren’t
  2. Having the most amazing friends in the world. They’re real, and will piss about and will fall out, but at least not plastic. I love you all ❤
  3. My ability to make things up on the go, I do it all the time and it’s a little off putting, but I learn.
