Random Rants Re Multiple Online Persona’s


Are people transformed by using the internet?

Is it possible that using internet changes people, can we become fragmented mutliple personalities?

The internet empowers people, we are in charge of what we do online, we can be our own masters.

Everyone yearns to be creative, to create. Being creative is being in charge, is being powerful, thereby being hip. You cannot be boring online – screen names we use or avatars. Assuming persona, being different.

Blogs as tools are deeply personal, people spill their guts on blogs or blogs are boring. Blogs not neccessarily invented to challenge authority or as alternative news sources but as a tool to capture the living experience of a person. An online version of their life. There is value in everyones unique experience.

Wiki’s power is that you can do something on a site without gettting permission. Seeing your name in lights.

You can be creative online. You can be empowered.

When we pour our souls online we construct an image of ourselves – we give our readers a glimpse of who we are. We can effectivly show our personality, or assume another.

noinnovation One of the bosses
(I have many, some days more, some days less) insisted there was no room for innovation in the organisation as it is today. At least he said that’s what his bosses are trying to impress upon him. “We are outsourcing all forms of innovation.

People who by default were full of brainpower, workarounds, new ideas and approaches are a dying breed. We are in a state of emergency. The organisation doesn’t want our type around any longer. We may have a history of innovative solutions through the years, in some respects our innovative ideas made the organisation what it is today, technically at least.

We are slowly being phased out. We are too costly to run. The beancounters see commercial solutions on par with our internal solutions. We, as an organisation, have special needs. You’ll see, it will turn. It’s a cycle. We’ll be back.”

I agree. I’ll continue to innovate. Secretly. Let’s hope there’s some talent left when we need it.

SO –

1st on Google


Did another Glory Search again this evening –

wooooohoooooo !!! 1st entry on Google for search term “Stavros Messinis” (that’s up from 8th and No, the rooms for rent (entry 2 – down from 1) are not referring to me so you can’t stay for free).

Still, it’s a reference to the Centric CRM translation I’m doing and not directly from this blog but we’ll soon change that.

Next target – 1st entry for search term “Stavros”

Bigger Office = Bigger Desk = Bigger Mess

myoffice4 This is my office right now.

Tomorrow morning I will be moving to a new room.

I asked for a bigger office when the new room became available but I did warn the boss that if he gave me a bigger office, I would make a bigger mess.

Goodbye my little office, we’ve been the coolest human/room partnership for 7 years. I will miss you. You are well known for containing the coolest gadgets in the building. I have often been warned by security to lock your door for fear of any of our goodies going missing. What a sad day this is.

Promise, I’ll pop in every so often to say hello and I’ll to try keep it the new one clean for as long as possible.

Chris Pirillo is MAD

Some things are best left alone. I’m sorry but a woman has no business around a mans five’oclock stubble. Chris trusts Ponzi enough to let her WAX!!! his face.
No way.
No Way.
