The Written Block

An adventure in science, literature, and storytelling.

A lot of times I see a post about something ridiculous, dehumanizing, or cruel that someone did, or I see a comment that is just downright offensive.  Too often the response to that is to blame the internet.

It’s not the internet’s fault.  The internet is a tool.

People are to blame for it.  People who see the internet as a way of making other people hurt from a distance so they don’t have to deal with the fallout.  Blaming the internet is like blaming a gun when someone is shot by a burglar.

So don’t blame the internet.  Blame the people who are responsible.

Sometimes the most fascinating characters are only ever in one episode. Does that seem right to you?

Salar de Uyuni, in Bolivia is such an amazing place. It is the world’s largest salt flat, and when its covered in water it becomes a mirror. Everytime someone walks across it, they appear to be walking on clouds.
