This site started out a number of years ago as a personal
web page and without a lot of thought as to what its overall purpose was going to be other than satisfying my own curiosity
about web design. While it has changed ‘faces’ and served various purposes over the years, I haven’t
really done a whole lot with it since the mid 90’s.
Recently however, as I have become more and more active
in different areas of the Internet such as social networking sites like Facebook as well as internet forums and message
boards; I decided to redesign the site to accommodate, represent and to adapt to my personal preferences as well as perhaps
enhance my individual evolutionary process into Cyber Space.
The main reason for my choice in utilizing a personally
designed web site is because I choose to have more control over specific aspects of certain information expressed
through sites I currently use on the internet. The areas of particular concern are the "personal information" sections
or ‘the profiles’ on the interactive and even some non-social sites. I find that most of them
have limitations in place that are far too restrictive when it comes to self-expression and even a bit coercive
with respect to their choices, so I created my own ‘online profile’ through the use of this site.
I also resent the assumption that people are all
neatly designed to fit into specific holes in a given board, thus I refuse to simply answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’
to their choice of questions. Admittedly I have been quite offended at times
regarding the peculiarity of some of the multiple choice answers available to their equally peculiar set of questions. The information provided is what I choose to present and in the form I choose to present
While this is essentially a personal site, its purpose
is not to display family pictures or share stories about family vacations. Rather,
it’s more of a place that presents an extension of myself, such as beliefs, opinions and sometimes a little attitude.
Thanks for stopping by!
