Thirteen months since I have Blogged. Not that I haven’t written, I just haven’t written online. I exist again because I have the beginnings of an artistic website, www.createfriesen.com, to show a little of what I’ve been up to this last twenty-two months with an art studio.I just reread “The Machine Stops”, which was written by E. M. Forster in 1909 and am amazed at some of the advancement towards his vision since the last time I read the short story. Flat screens, interconnected computers and a more advanced online social networking envisioned a hundred years in advance. I also remember reading many science fiction stories in the 1970’s about rogue giant computers taking over the world, a prime example would be “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream” (also a 1995 home video game) by Harlan Ellison, who my sister collects and I have an aversion to. When will life be so fast paced that we can’t keep up? Three thousand unread emails and counting.
