In the context of this year being our Queen's Diamond Jubilee -
I would dedicate this zBlog - first posted on 23rd November 2006 -
to Her Majesty, as a "thanksgiving" for her stalwart and dedicated
service for the last 60 years.
It is appropriate on this day of thanksgiving – the day that the Daily Telegraph
reports of our Queen's meeting with the Mohegans – that homage be paid to the fact that
the “seed” which Brian planted a year ago – has already grown to more than 32,000
“roots & branches” – everyone of which has an oh so very important piece of the truth –
which now needs to be inter-connected with every other piece - to the mutual benefit of ALL.
In this context it could perhaps be stated that we all @zaadz are indeed in the process of creating a completely NEW method of communication which we could call LIFE OF UNDERSTANDING or more appropriately LOVE
As I have said elsewhere the world comprises of those who understand – who need no explanation - and those who don’t understand - for whom no explanation will suffice.
It has always been my goal in LIFE to envisage and establish “art of the possible”
technology-based solutions to enhance the process of communication with those who don't understand – regardless of the potential of babel-like
I have also said elsewhere that technology has always – throughout history provided the basis of solutions to all the problems that Homo sapiens has faced – and that it has been artists
who have discovered and demonstrated the beauty of technology – in song, dance, music, poetry, painting and drawing.
At about the time I made my statement
to Kenneth Baker – Chris Curry at Acorn Computers used to say to me that I was too free with my information – to which I replied –
"however much information I freely give, a hundred fold will return."
Since then I have evolved my own understanding
to encompass the fact that if ONE is equally free with knowledge
– it too will be returned a thousand fold
– and if free with the ideas which create wealth
– a ten thousand fold return will pertain
Upon the launch of Philips Laservision
– I was involved in an evaluation of the active play characteristics
of this system - & was amazed by the capability of the human brain – to assimilate the content / juxtaposition / & context of everyone of the 10, 000 still images of a 16 minute sequence when viewed at a rate of no more than 10 frames/sec….
subsequently Bob Abel – driven by the vision
of Alan Kay’s Dynabook
– produced in his truly
“ Hollywood capitalist culture style “ – the ground-breaking interactive multimedia exemplar demonstrator – Guernica
& finally Tim Berners-Lee
used all of these ideas - which spawned the Apple Macintosh and Hypercard
– to facilitate the creation of the World Wide Web – for the mutual benefit of ALL – completely FREE of CHARGE.
The IDEA of IDEAS
- which I am now beginning to freely spin into the public domain as the web of zaadz
– will, I anticipate, establish the mechanism by which we can ALL change the world together.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving – looooonnnngggg week-end
