Now we can’t even discuss things on our blogs!


As internet users, we all use it sometimes as a kind of a sounding board..you know, to let off steam, have a little rant or whatever…myself being an ace culprit!

But latest news is that the USA, in the guise of the National Security Agency (NSA) has been revealed to be using a secret eavesdropping system called Prism, that monitors every email or blog posted on the net. This is from a CIA technician who used to work there, so it’s from the horse’s mouth.

To tell you the truth, this not news to me….I, like many of you out there, have known this for many years. So far, the USA has been revealed to be doing this, but I bet my bottom dollar that other countries are also doing it.

Look, we know we’re all living in different times now, with threats of terrorism just around the corner, and sure, it’s a good thing that maybe something of use, something that may save innocent lives, may be found by using this surveillance, but I think it’s taking the pee….they are using terrorism as an excuse to monitor everything.

Who knows, some of us posting our daily rants or likes/dislikes, on blogs just like this one, may end up in prison one day, just because we made a silly mistake and said something we shouldn’t have.

The internet started as a free and encumbered medium…and it should remain so.

KEEP IT FREE, KEEP IT FREE, KEEP IT FREE, I say!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
