The Internet is A World Wide Support Group


map

The life that we live is something that we will cherish throughout our life with the hope that one day our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren will know the sacrifices that we have made through our life. Some may say that we have had a hard life but in reality we go through the same struggles that our ancestor’s went through many years ago. However, they did not have the modern conveniences that we have today with internet, Facebook or any other social media. Back then all they could do is write letter’s on paper and send them through the mail. Now, today we have all this technology that allows people from all over the world reach family, friends, coworkers, business partners, authors, publishers, and many others. As a person we are allowed to voice our opinions about how things are going in the world, our interests, likes, dislikes, trials, and triumphs. Something that will be with the world for years to come because once it is out there you can never take it back. Even though you delete it from your computer what ever you put on the internet is there to stay. Making your voice heard across the world is something that no one believes until it happens. You personally get to know the people who read your work, articles, essays, discussions, and anything else that you want to put on the internet.

The powerful feeling of knowing that someone else appreciates your work because you never thought that anyone would read anything that you had to say on the internet. Although she is not an author or novelist she is a writer that enjoys every aspect of writing. Learning new things from the followers that she has and the new follower’s that she will make in the future. The love and support from total strangers has made her all warm and appreciated inside for the hard work that she puts into her writing. The most interesting things can be found on someone’s blog from their trials, triumphs, achievements, disappointments, family, friends, and anything else that you would want to read about from all across the world. As a person you have the world by the wings and you can take it as far as you want to go with the inspiration to inspire other’s around you for the better. Making note of the obstacles in your life and how you handled those situations may give someone in another country the advice that they need if they are in the same situation.

In the years to come people will pull up your blog and learn about you and why you wanted to write about the opinions, trials, triumphs, accomplishments, and the advice that you had to give at that moment in time. They will pass the information onto colleagues, friends, family, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and anyone else that they think should read about the person who wrote the blog. You are making your mark in the world. Something to remember you by so make it something that you want other people to read. Enjoy what you are doing because you are making an impact across the world.

Goodbye, Twitter Music: the app will die in mid-April


Even though I do not use the music app I thought I would share…..

Gigaom

Built in secrecy and released in a high-profile swirl of hype just under a year ago, Twitter (s twtr) is finally pulling the plug on it’s #music app. According to a tweet from the company, #music’s iPhone app (s aapl) has been deleted from iTunes as of Friday, and the service will cease on April 18 — coincidentally, the day the service was first announced.

Twitter #music was meant to be Twitter’s foray into “music sharing,” intimately working with engineers from Rdio and Spotify to create an extra social layer for streaming music services. The company had acquired music ranking service We Are Hunted to build #music months before it debuted in mid-April of last year.

Although #music…

To start the day … Google doodle!


I love Spring. It is the most wonderful time of the year.

It Is What It Is

~~March 20, 2014~~ 

FIRST DAY OF SPRING

The happy news is already trending on Twitter, and Google is celebrating the occasion with an awesome animated Doodle showing a cartoon man watering seeds, which blossom into flowers that spell out GOOGLE.

~~What exactly is the Vernal Equinox?~~

TIME writer Harry Swartout explains:

Twice a year, the earth’s axis is angled such that the world gets an equal amount of daylight and night. As the axis tilts further, the northern hemisphere receives more direct sunlight, leading to spring and summer’s warmer temperatures. The Equinox helps mark important celebrations around the world like Nowruz, the Persian New Year, Easter, and Passover.

It also means you can officially wear white–but only until Labor Day.

So though it’s technically the first day of Spring, it’s looking pretty cold out there across much of the country. The Weather Channel’s temperature map is basically…

Google’s Project Tango could finally allow robots to roam free on the International Space Station


Interesting! Thanks for sharing….

The NASA SPHERES satellite drifts like a puck on an air hockey table, spinning slowly as its canisters release puffs of CO2 to steady its course. A Google Project Tango phone, which acts as the satellite’s eyes and brain, displays a heat map view of its surroundings.

Its world is limited: a 6x6x6 foot cube that sits atop an almost perfectly level granite table so large a building in the NASA Ames Research Center campus had to be built around it. At a demonstration for NASA administrator Charles Bolden Tuesday, Smart SPHERES software development lead Zachary Marotto explained that’s because SPHERES used to rely on sound-emitting beacons attached to the walls of the cube to triangulate its location; microphones that pockmark the satellite’s surface would listen…

Facebook says 375 million users play games per month


I would believe that! Just about everyone that I know plays games on Facebook and there are countless invitations that I receive. However, I do not play them anymore because people take it a little to far.

Gigaom

When it comes to games, Facebook (s fb) has been out of the drivers seat for quite a while. One need only look at the embattled Zynga to see Facebook’s decline in the gaming business — especially as mobile gaming rises. But the social media company is betting that embracing mobile and cross-platform engagement, rather than competing with it, will be the way to keep games growing in the future.

At panel Monday at the Games Developer Conference in San Francisco, Aaron Brady, an engineering manager on the games team, highlighted some interesting statistics. According to an internal study, highlighted in a blog post, an average of 375 million people play Facebook-connected games each month, across both desktop and mobile. And cross-platform is a boon for the company: Cross-platform engagement is 2.5 times the level of mobile-only players, and 1.5 times the level of desktop-only players.

In a more selective second internal…
