Hard to get started

I've started many blogs with the best of intentions. I post regularly thinking I will keep it regular and it just doesn'thappen. Well as of today I'm just going to be satisfied with that.

I'm not trying to make a living trying to advertise or build my reach. I mainly just want to bable about what i'm interested in and share it with people. Sometimes even be helpful.

So from this pint on I will try to post whatever the topic or length.. as in this post itself.


The Era of Downloaded Content

So with the purchase fo Time Warner by AT&T and Talk of Comcast looking at Fox, people are pretty nervouse about where there content will come from and what will it cost. There are talks of Alphabet (Google) picking up their fiber game again, or maybe 5g. Something, anything to keep things competative so the Netflix and Youtubes of the world don't get crushed.

I suggest it my be new time in our history, where we focus on pre-downloaded content. The era of the podcast maybe? Forget streaming..lets go back to mp3 collections and playlists. Hell, I am even open to Netflix sending me DVDs again..if they could only offer sending a whole series at once to feed my binging.

On another note, let's bring print back! Give me some good books and some magazines, even some comics. And on real paper, forget the kindle or ipad.

There are a ton of ways to consume content and to get it. Let's not have this little merger throw us in a tizzy. Just vote with the wallet, stop using their offerings the best you can and find another way. If we let to few companies control our entertainment and education for that matter, we may be forced to entertaine our children with cave paintings just to stick it to them.

New Platform

First time posting from this new platform. I bit the bullet and paid for a year of service with write.as.

It is a pretty simplistic blog platform using Markdown and..well thats about it. Will possibly go into it deeper later.

Cheers Tim
