I love the Internet and Facebook - follow me there

I love the Internet and Facebook. Much controversy about it, but I love it. Being a photophobic girl who simply can't have activities outside (sun). No restaurants, dancing or cinema (spot light, etc.) or hobby or sport (neon light everywhere). So Facebook somewho is my playground, my club, my meeting room.

It is nearly the only place where I actually CAN meet with people. Of course I sometimes see a smiling face at the clinic or in a Doctor's waiting room... Real contact is priceless.

The beading friends I've met there might not be persons I've met in person, they nevertheless are real persons, and they really are friends. They are really special, they share their feelings, they respect each other and they love one another. I think that it is KINDNESS. Yes kindness.

Buying clothes, and sometimes other items, online is a salvation. Before I understood that it was the light that made me feel so bad, I always went completely mad when trying things on in tiny changing rooms with light bulbs all around the mirror. Hurray. I don't need to do that anymore.

I am thankful for genius Tim Berners-Lee and the CERN. Tim and CERN still stuck to the idea that free sharing of technology for the good
of humankind is normal, they want the Internet to remain free for all. My husband contributed to it with his discovery of what he calls "phantom lines in telephone connections". That was the time things were still done without bothering who got the credits. The time Swissair was a big company of 40'000 employees around the world all working with one intranet... No patent on the Internet, it is already everybody's. And it must remain so.

Follow me on my Samohtac FB Page where I post news about my latest creations and patterns. 

I also share free patterns there. 

And you, do you share?
