Singapore 27th June 2011
Nowadays if you are not into blogging, facebook, twitter, linkedin, msnchat, skype and a couple of other of those applications you are seen as being from a distant past. My son a bit less, but my two daughters, certanly the youngest one, are so into all these social sites that it makes me feel old and nearly retarded…of course I am not really, its just that I have only been adapting these “ways of life” as I go along while these kids grow up with it and surfing the net is an integral part of school, daily life and social communication. It just seems to come to them naturally while we, the older generation, have more difficulty in getting our hands around it. Specifically when it does not work! If all functions well, ok, but figuring out how to set up, trouble shoot and use all the features is a different ball game all together.
I probably sound old fashioned…As it is I am already happy that I can manage my email account, know how to skype and upload my blog everyday. Lately I have been “surfing” around a bit to look how other people use their blog. Some daily bloggers are really good with lots of info and nice pictures, but then it is likely they spent hours behind their computer, while I generally only spent about half an hour on my blog.
Having said that I am planning to revamp the blog site to hopefully make it a bit more attractive, modern looking and organised. I will be on leave soon and away for nearly 2 weeks so I will have some time to think about it :). Anyone out there with suggestions on how I can improve my blog please let me know, I am open for suggestions!
In Light Watch today an example of an artist that you can find when surfing the net and checking out peoples blog and links! The artist is called Tokujin Yoshioka. He does some amazing things and lighting is defintely part of his conceptual creations and thinking. The link below leads to his website and more precisely to an amazing video of an installation he did for Hermes in Tokyo which combines technology and imagination. Have a look at it and all his other stuff as well: www.tokujin.com/en/space/souffle/
