Geek Goodbyes In 2018:






Dan's Geek & Tech Predictions For 2019:

  • Multiple companies will launch Low-Earth-Orbit broadband internet satellites by the end of the year, and SpaceX will lead. It will be the beginning of an internet revolution as big as the change from dial-up to broadband,  resulting in ubiquitous cheap global gigabit internet access within ten years.
  • Mobile 5G technology will begin rolling out in earnest, and by the end of the year large metro markets will have some coverage - and even a few phones that can use it.
  • Cable internet provider companies will be talking about major rate reductions and trying to sugar-coat crappy customer service by the end of the year due to the above two stories. The level of dispicableness they have maintained for so long will see people eagerly awaiting leaving them for satellite and mobile competitors - but the competing networks will need about two additional years to really begin replacing cable internet in earnest.
  • Carte-blanche virtual content marketplaces will begin and start proliferating.
  • Empty big-box store buildings will become data center assets due to available power drops, large flat roofs ideal for solar power and cooling plant, ample room in empty garden centers for emergency generators, pre-existing loading docks, ample parking space for technicians and installers, and massive available floor space, and their location in areas with a low cost-of-living and low-cost real estate. Look to see dead Sears, Kmart, and Walmart stores filling up with co-location cages, servers, routers, fiber optics, and both mobile and satellite internet links.
  • Someone in the Marvel Universe will fry Thanos, grab the Infinity Glove, and restore half the universe's Marvel characters. Probably Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy by a freak accident aided by the Norse God of sheer Dumb Luck.
  • Processor power will begin increasing in earnest again toward the end of the year as stacked 10nm chips are combined with new materials that run cooler than existing silicon come on market.





Happy New Year, and welcome 2019!

Brain-Shaking The Universe...

Brain-Shaking The Universe...

A quantum field is the waving grass of endless possibility,

Waving this way and that,

Depending on the winds of thought,

Tickling the feet of minds all about the Multiverse.



If an ordinary human has the wing-breeze of a monarch butterfly,

Then poets are as an albatross,

Where a shaman or yogi may be a Thunderbird or Dragon,

Shaking fluid reality,

Or soaring on the shared winds of monarch migrations.



We all dream of being hurricanes.

Public-Domain E-Book: "The Great Book Of Blizzard..."



Preface to "The Great Book Of Blizzard":



The
Poetry that is contained in these pages is the result of a lifetime
spent mostly in places with real Winter; The Great Lakes for the most
part, yet also the Great Plains, the Rockies of Colorado, and even
mid-North Texas and Northern New Mexico.

In
the face of Climate Change, I wanted to save and preserve what it was
like to live in these places in the era of actual Winters.

Many
of these poems are what I like to call “Poetic Memoir,” and are
based on real events in my life. Some are simply fantasy based on a
lifetime of experience with snow and Winter...real Winters.

Although
I have lived in Southern California for four years as of the
completion of this compilation in 2018, never forget that I am a
native of Wisconsin who spent fifty years in the Midle West of these
United States of America. My family still lives there, and lives with
snow.

For
those of you who find snowy Winters a novelty, or know it not at all,
I hope this book can give you a deeper understanding of what it was
like.

What
so many forget is that almost everything in nature needs a period of
rest and renewal before the busy regrowth of Springtime. Even
humanity needs – and mostly neglects – quiet time to turn inward,
reflect, and recharge.

Thank
you for reading.

With
love and light,

Daniel
