Are you lying about anything online? 

 

Be honest, have you really read and loved the entire works of Dostoevsky in the original Russian? Do you really celebrate the entire catalogue of Woody Allen’s early works? If you’re lying about anything in an online profile, it could soon be a criminal offense if the White House gets its way.

Of all the forms of communication on this campus, email is at the top of the list.

Ever since our generation got its hands on the computer, Google was the search engine god of the Internet. It answers all our questions from health diagnostics to directions to our favorite restaurants. 

Since everyone thinks so highly of it, we expect a genius team to come up with anything and be successful at it.

After Oxford’s submission for Google Fiber national broadband Internet in 2010, some concern has surfaced because a decision has not yet been made.

After Oxford’s submission for Google Fiber national broadband Internet in 2010, some concern has surfaced because a decision has not yet been made.

Google was originally set to make an announcement in late 2010 as to which city or town would win the broadband Internet.

Stewart Rutledge volunteered to help Oxford receive the Internet service and has been the leader of Oxford’s participation in the project.

Those who watched the State of the Union address last week heard President Obama talk about a number of goals for the next few years.

While this speech was markedly different from State of the Union speeches in the past, I feel that Obama’s focus on the Internet and related technologies was an important point.

The fact is that the Internet will be the most important resource in the next decade. It is not only a communication platform, but also the fastest growing platform for businesses.

I read something pretty disturbing the other day.

I read something pretty disturbing the other day.

Apparently in New York, there is a spat between the Fox Network and Cablevision, a cable service provider. It has even gone so far as for Cablevision to stop broadcasting Fox’s content.

Now, this happens from time to time when networks and cable service providers fail to negotiate pricing for content.

Basically, what happens is an elementary school equivalent fight where only the consumer loses.

I am admittedly a person of limited patience. I’ve never claimed it to be one of my virtues. In fact, I would even go so far as to say that I am constantly restless.

There are many scary things that exist in the world.

One only has to turn on the evening news to hear some horrible story and spend the rest of the night cowering in the corner. Many news outlets have turned to this morbid sensationalism in order to drive more viewers to it.
