nostalgia

welcome to my online turf… www.brentchristian.com. it’s nice to be back after almost 8 years of not being online! i certianly couldn’t foresee (or even scarcely imagine) being away for so long! i have been a computer junkie since 9 yrs old and i ‘lived’ online well before the internet was widely available. while it seems the idea of even having an ‘online identity’ is still a rather new concept for many, i was keen to the idea back in 1993 which makes me seem old since it may be difficult for you to imagine life without the internet now, however i’m only 29 years old. my personal site started out hosted on my own server thanx to an old box running Slackware 1.7 and it died shortly after my last post on 7/7/01. i miss all the cool people and the good vibes of those who where web journaling back before the Pyra folks started calling us ‘bloggers’. if you check out some of those old websites courtesy of the way back machine you’ll see what i mean… or umm probably not, it’s one of those things where you like had to be there. anyways, i love/hate computers and have been working with them since 1988, i used to run up the phone bill dialing BBSs and actually miss those times (not the 1200 baud connection though, or monochrome screens). the sad thing was that i was still playing on BBSs when radiply more and more than just an elite few started to enjoy the ‘world wide web’ and with higher and higher speeds, mind you; while i was stuck out in a small rural town literally chomping at the bit. when i finally got set free from small town hell i started my own computer company during the dot com pre crunch era… ahhh where am i now ….and what am i talking about?? wow this is seriously ancient boring stuff, but i bet you read at least 90% of it. that is time you’ll never get back my friend, hope you don’t mind LOL!! next time read faster using spreeder.com. …ohh yeah, i would call myself the ‘internet rock star’ if that title didn’t properly belong to ben brown.

enjoy my new personal site www.brentchristian.com and thanx for visiting, you big reader you!!

peace out – brent

The Economics of Giving It Away

If you are you guilty of looking to web dev projects as a means for producing your multi-million dollar money tree you’ll probably (or probably not) be interested in this facing-the-facts article from Chris Anderson, the Editor in Chief of Wired Magazine:

The Economics of Giving It Away
(…I really like the article-complementing-image by John Kuczala, LOL)

It’s absolutely funny to me that companies are still figuring out which business models work and which don’t out here in the world wide web. Also amazing is that most people still don’t understand that real money made on the web has still not been realized in 10 years worth of flaming pies-in-the-sky and dot-com-hype. It’s especially strange to me that,  after coming back from being almost completely unplugged from the internet world for nearly 5 years, i’m not seeing anything much has changed other than the amount of purpose driven, content driven, or/and otherwise just cool sites have been almost swallowed up in junk-for-content sites which are now over consuming what would have been perfectly good bandwidth…  (it would have been a grave sin in 1995 to allow a lot of this www waste to be published).

I am really happy though to finally see standards compliant web browsers and design elements being separated from content.

Ohhh and now comes cloud computing!! LOL when it rains it pours?!
