While I have noticed that one really needs to be careful not to dive too deeply into the net for too long a time and longer periods of internet absence this year due to moving twice allowed me to read more (one really has to be careful to notice whether the information one really needs are better or more efficiently gathered from books or the net, unless it is a mixture, of course; ultimately, though, one ought to not forget that there may also be guidance “within” or from higher realms, and there is also the HEART, which should know… ) I found an interesting view expressed by Pippa Merivale (Metatronic Life) in her newsletter from September 19th: the internet depicted as a “material expression of the much deeper matrix of compassion: the universal synthesiser”.
I like good design and good services. Both, Google has provided.
But I also like privacy and being able to remain anonymous, when I wish to.
Google +, which had been expected as “Google Circles” or something similar already in March, may be the next successful Social Network. Thanks to an usually very helpful, well-informed mailinglist and a nice blogger, I am a member now.
Until now, I had been hesitant to have a public profile with Google (which you need for the service), but after realising you can control whether it will be shown in most search engines or not (including Google), and you can fine-tune which links will be shown to whom (be careful about the +1 in which connection, depending on how you want to “craft” your general profile on the net), I created one and was able to sign up for Google+.
