This is a good idea Flemig.
I would like to see technology in general moove toward more standardisation. It is a technology jungle out there created and maintained by commercial profiteering methods.
For example: Yhere are more than 455 different power supplies for various gadgets and aquipment we use daily. These power supplies differ in voltage,polarity,size,and shape specifified for your equipment.How many hours have you spent trying to find the right powe supply. I have spent many hours doing that and finally ended up junking the thing.
Power sulies are just one problem.
Each company makes components that perform the same function, but just slightly different in shape or size to make it impossible to use generally.
Think about how much $, energy,time,frustration,environment etc. could be saved by standardisation.
The tecnology is there, but not used to achive stanardised sokutions.
Corporate greed prevents User friendly devices, after all the te gross national product index must grow by forcing you to spend your money and you must enslave yourself to work to make that money.
Look around your house, office,city and note the things could be made more user friendly. Dream up solutions, and take action buy buying standardised component compatible devices.
I would really like to work with other people on projects of User Friendly Solutions.

Because I enjoy feeling and knowing and sharing my inner world, I don't concern myself with the "trappings" of the outer world. I don't want my life to be about racing to beat of their drum. What benefits do you gain from that? I truly want to know.

Well, the problem comes in when one goes out and starts using all the facilities available in the world, and one then becomes subject to the problems and hidden rules they carry with them. I like to communicate effectively, so I use computers and cell phones. I could have chosen not to. But then we wouldn't even be here having this conversation, because I wouldn't have made this program, and I wouldn't be here. So, I guess I've decided that it is worth the trouble to put up with computers in order to get what I want.
22 Sep 2001 @ 16:10 by sharie : Wherever you go, there you are...
Yes, I agree with using the internet to communicate, and using computers to assist with our work. I have a cell phone, but I gave up using it because the internet is so much easier for me, and I also gave up flying around, travelling around so much. That's what I was asking about... why you feel you need to travel so much. That's a funny question, but I guess that's what it comes down to. BTW, feel free to delete my comments from your News Log if you'd like.

I normally don't travel much. But I've recently decided to try to go to a conference of some kind every month, in order to get out and see people in different areas more, and to be exposed to more. It stimulates me to experience different views and to meet new people, so I'm trying to get over my own inertia which would otherwise let me just sit at home and work. It makes a big difference to meet people personally, as compared with just knowing people online, and often creates deeper relations.

Any tragedy during Pakistan continues to worsen mainly because relief equipment and facilitate fall far in need of what is desirable. More facilitate is anxiously needed when the potential for many fatalities starts out to loom.
