Pārskatot Tavas mājas lapas viesu interneta meklētājsistēmās ievadītos atslēgas vārdus, jautājumus un problēmas, iespējams, būsi ievērojusi savdabīgu nesakritību starp meklēto terminu un Tavā mājas lapā atrodamo informāciju. Visticamāk, dominē vispopulārākie meklēšanas vārdi, kuri reizēm tikai sagadīšanās pēc iekļuvuši Tavās publikācijās un ne vienmēr sniedz lapas apmeklētāja kāroto atbildi. Jāpiezīmē, ka nereti gan cilvēkiem nemaz to īsto atbildi nevajag, un viņi ir itin apmierināti ar pirmo vai pirmajiem diviem rezultātiem, ko sniedz izvēlētā meklētājsistēma - atrastā informācija ir gana saistoša, lai sākotnējā problēma jūsmīgā aizgrābtībā līksmi izšķīstu nejaušas klikšķināšanas saldajā aizmirstībā. Jo darīt jau vispār šodien neko negribas, un ir taču labi tāpat tīksmināties par savu slinkumu, vai ne? No satura radītāju puses, digitālajā vidē, kur ideju pārtapšanu publikācijā definē vien pirkstu skraidīšanas ātrums pa klaviatūru, blogeru, žurnālistu, komentētāju un citu regulārāko interneta autoru izpausmēs vai ik dienas lasāma gaušanās par ideju trūkumu un jaunrades simulēšana, pārdrukājot preses relīzes un norādot, kas veiksmīgi ir izdevies citam autoram, YouTube video publicētājam, fotogrāfam, aktierim, karikatūristam un politiķim. Trūkst ideju? Elementāra izeja: iedvesmai paskatīties tajos pašos meklēšanas rezultātos. Pēc kā tad Tevi atrod? Kā virtuālajā telpā Tevi redz tie, kas uz Tevi skatās? Ko viņi meklē? Ko viņi grib lasīt? Kas viņus interesē? Punktos, kur viņu un Tavas intereses saskaras, slēpjas bezgalīgs iedvesmas avots. Dažkārt radošuma dzirksti ierosina tik elementārs gājiens, kā uzzināt, ko tad īsti Tavas mājas lapas apmeklētāji grib lasīt... Turklāt nevis vienkārši "content is king", bet karalis ir saturs, ko valda oriģinālas idejas. Iedvesmas pastiprināšanai - septembra amizantāko atslēgas vārdu saraksts dix.lv apmeklētāju izpildījumā.

This post ends with four questions. During a recent summer trip back to my childhood town I came upon a magazine carefully stacked away in a heap of secondary and elementary school diaries and memorabilia. The cover of PC World August 1995 featured an electronic launch of larger scale than Windows Vista. Relive the magic. Today, the launch is featured on Wired magazine's first internet page.

Couple months ago they changed tram ticket system in Rīga. If before you had to buy ticket in coach from conductor, now you can get them in kiosks and punch in the tram.

It's really EU-style, but many people use trams without tickets now, because the risk to get caught is really small - public transportation company of Rīga city lacks workers (as almost every field in job market), so those few controllers are able to check only tiny part of all trams.

My friends often ride me that I think about sex too much and this minus (?) influences all my actions in life. Well, this morning on my way to office I decided to conduct a small test on myself – I counted girls I would really like to bang and they were only 14 out of some 100. Or is it too much? Anyway, couple of them were really good looking, but they most certainly knew that about themselves, so those foxies were wearing iron mask – that special face expression chick only master. You know, cold look, compressed lips, no emotions, „don’t come close or I bite your head off”?

Found some interesting facts about legendary Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach in this website. Here is one I liked the most: "Another time a guy on the street was selling these Indian head rings. I wanted one. I went to my dad and said, `Look, I never ask you for anything. I always help out at work.

Lazy day at work, ‘cause it’s Friday and couple birthday parties at office. As Metallica sung, killing time. So the result of it is another wisdow from Internet, bling-bling for hardcore NBA fanatics – NBA phone. I liked the feature „main button has the design of basketball”. So, rub the ball, all you NBA lovers. But I guess that’s about it. Me? I don’t want this phone.

Šobrīd Tu jau pietiekami precīzi zini, kas lielākajā daļā gadījumu sekos katrai Tavai rīcībai, kustībai un izvēlei. Tu zini, kā Tu jutīsies, ja Tu piecelsies agri no rīta. Ja Tu steigā savu aizliegto brokastu augli neiegūsi pienācīgā apjomā. Ja ieiesi atsvaidzinošā dušā. Noskūsies. Pusi dienas lielākā vai mazākā rādiusā noskraidīsi apkārt, pirkstiem kņudot dažādos komunikācijas kanālos sazināsies ar Tavam apjomam atbilstošu cilvēku daudzumu – demonstrējot viņiem savu attieksmi pret sarunas objektu. Ar draugu pārrunāsi, kā laikraksti un TV apvienojas internetā.

According to Wikipedia, 2007 is the Year of Golden Pig. And today, nobody doubts Wikipedia [which itself is a synonym for a random bunch of complete strangers]. Furthermore, Chinese beliefs suggest the heaven element of Fire to come in combination with the combination element Gold in a Pig year occurs every 600 years. The Pig is the last of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, it symbolises good luck. Babies born in Golden Pig years are believed to be blessed by luck and wealth.

It's about seven minutes until the 529 Mb patch for World of Warcraft (WoW) downloads. I installed the latest addition to evergrowing Blizzard universe - slightly thirsting hope until Starcraft 2 launches. And the first thing my second MMORPG started, it connected to a server for an update download.

It’s been a long time since my last post here, but it’s not easy to be unemployed – too much time for temptations. Anyway, I spent December, January and February in beautiful city of Budapest, now back in Latvia, but all this traveling, especially in homeland, made me remember the fascination of public transportation system.
