A lot of time when I’m writing I use the term we, in fact that we are me I have not put out any news or even a story for some time. The fact is the site has not died, as a matter of fact I am attempting to expand the site into a community.
I have had a few (not many) who have displayed an interest in making a connection. And being that I’m always up for some good communication I’m in 100 percent in agreement. It is no problem to me that more people have not display an interest. It really interesting that some (so-called) white people think that (so-called) Blacks are united. We are not, but we talk a good game. Let’s just say we are still working (those who have a mind too) hard at it. I got on the internet when it was a ghost town not many of my friends didn’t know anything about it but then none of my friend were playing computer games back then. I was and was interested in programing my own on my Timex Sinclair and later the games published for Commodore 64.
So I was in that environment in order to know about the new thing “HTML”. Note: in 1989 Berners-lee invented HTML to organize information and collaboration at CERN. This is also the time in the (so-called) Black community that the phenomena of the African lecturers becoming known in the community. Here is an interesting side note, this is around the same that we start to hear about gangster rap. But more about that in a conspiratorial look at hip-hop. I tried to get one of the lecturers and a talk show host to get behind us having a page on the Internet at that time. I would like to think, that because I didn’t have any writing skills at that time, the idea was not fully understood. But truth be told that was not the case, because I was told that student at NYU would do it. That never happen and I put up “listen.to.AfricanLecturers” on a free site. Which would turn into “GeneticMemory.org”. However, if it were not for that same lecturer GeneticMemory would probably not be.
When you are pass sixty five years of age you really don’t need to make a lot of friends because already have the one that count. This site is free of ads or cost so it’s not making me money it cost me money and it not done for me at pass sixty five, hopefully it’s for community or unity
As always I have gone off on a tangent, I started to tell you why there have been no new post, and all I have said in the last statement was said to inform you that I can’t do both at the same time.
Let me tell you something about me. I’m a (so-called) black man with a really bad education. Which can be said for most (so-called)black man in America. Also to compound the problem I am dyslexics. (Dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence.) From a personal point of view it act more like a vision problem, because (in my case) the letters seem at many time to be inverted, at least that is the preception I get. This problem really messed me up my early years to the point that I never could get the numbers to act right in math, so it not just a reading problem.
It’s going to be an ongoing story!
So, you can imagine how I fell when I see folks who are not having any problem with education or Dyslexia who can’t find in themselves to add some value to the site by giving their opinion. Again, it is also why I take long brakes away from the site. But I do understand it. People want to be seen by hunderds if not thousands of people or no one. So Facebook is a better option in their view, Something I can do nothing about. I think I should have named this “The Rant!” Anyway just todays thought!
