Living in the hinterland has advantages

I was reading the news the other day about the 1st day of protest in Egypt. And it revived a feeling I’d felt a few decades before … so I vlogged about it.

The video was more about the fact that living in the rural area where I do not an awful lot happens … and when you look at what’s happening in Tunisia and Egypt that might be a good thing.

It also points out that totalitarian regimes will inevitable fall because you can only keep people oppressed for so long … and then they realize that they’ve got nothing to lose by rising up and revolting against the regime that is perceived as being the problem. As in the fall of the Iron Curtain I see a simple crisis of confidence: if the people stop believing in the system it crumbles.

Most things I do involve computers. Nowadays that sounds stupid to hear because everyone uses computers. Except I was saying that before the IBM PC came on the scene. (hint: my first programs were entered on punch cards in an IBM-29) Now I mostly use them. Mostly to provide a community service in my small town. Because I could when it was asked and still can. And I'm a wannabe writer. Various books in various states of incompleteness. A few short stories. Might do more of that.
