Miscellaneous opinions and insights

Mostly about technology and its application with occasional opinions on humanity and some of the people we have to live with. Not scared to comment but generally I am gentle with it.

Born in England when black and white TV was a novelty in most homes, I have grown up and dedicated my life to technology.
Came to South Africa in 1970 and completed formal education here.
I have used computer technology all my working life and still am learning more about using it everyday. The speed with which we can now share ideas and information is proof that the dreams and visions I heard in the late 1960's can come true

Interfering in sexual activity is not normally what I do but the screams that pierced the early evening were not the normal yelps of passion exhibited by Othello and Olivia.

I have lived in Johannesburg for almost 41 years. I know my way around town without using a digital aid. I know the general location of the suburbs and the best routes to follow to get to them. I can even direct you y street names, robots and landmarks to your destination.

EWN alerted me on Monday to the demise of Bin Laden and the first messgae I read was in fact the second message that they had sent out namely that he had been buried at sea.
My mind immediately ran into conspiracy mode returning only after I had read the first message and watched the news.

What intrigues me though is the reluctance of the US to publish a picture or some more details around the mission. The latter is a more understandable than the former.

That we may find a picture of Bin Laden with bullet wounds in his head disturbing is a valid comment but then we have seen gruesome pictures as a reuslt of the terrorism that his group perpetrated.
So is a picture of Bin Laden really that disturbing? I still get shivers whenever I see the burning world towers and my heart turns to sadness when the date is mentioned so come on US it is time that the world sees the result of leading a life of terror.
Publish the picture, in fact publish edited highlights of the attack on the compound. It would make a welcome change to seeing towers collapsing.
