Spring is here. Nevertheless, the Sun does not come out too often as it should. It is cold here. From what I heard, France is having the same situation except that it is worse. They had four days of rain and no shine. However, the bright side is far brighter.

The trees are greening and the flowers are blooming excessively, thus making Ann Arbor, the Diag in particular back to what it is supposed to be – a great green open garden cum activity area where Humans lay down and play Frisbee, read book, having a chat with friends and a conversation to their significant other.

Near Mosher-Jordan Hall, there is a tree which has no leaf but red-pink-purple colored flowers. It simply has an extraordinary beauty in my opinion although a few dare to argue that with me.

I am really glad to move to the Hill Area instead of going to Baits Area and live with all of the other Malaysians. Here in Mary Butler Markley Hall, the people are nice. I meet a lot of new, American friends. They frequently say hi to me probably recognizing me by my freaking looking hair which is tied up in the back. Although I do enjoy having these new expected friends, I really thank God for there are a few Malaysians here which I can meet up if I miss some of my old friends. Having a lot of new friends doesn’t mean losing tail of old friends. If this idea doesn’t mean anything to you, I hope the word loyalty strike a chord in your head.

The internet is a powerful tool. It is unnecessarily mentioned but I couldn’t imagine a life without an internet connection. Life without a computer is life in hell.

Here, with a very fast T1 speed, all the information is transferred without a noticeable delay.

In Malaysia, the mobile phones play the role of communicator but here, the computers, the terminal to the World Wide Web replace the obsolete phone. Although the telephone without doubt plays an important, it exists because some people still don’t make full use out of the internet. I suspect, once every Human learns how to use the internet to a respectable manner, the telephone will be incorporated into the internet terminal a.k.a. the computer. Even now, talking through the internet is a possibility. It is even cheaper.

I use the internet for things that I usually need to walk to a place to get it. I just order some stuff by filling in templates made out not of paper but out of html and Java. It’s more environmental-friendly. Wasting a little bit of electricity in order to reduce the usage of paper is certainly worthwhile the trouble. Plus, Michigan is one of the states the uses green energy a lot. As a result, I need not to worry about killing Gaia indirectly.

I, the CEO of __earth believe the internet will open up a new era for the Human race.

Wait. The internet has already opened up a new era for the Earth’s most intelligent dwelling.

Decades ago, Isaac Asimov, if my memory doesn’t fail me, suggested that a central mega-computer will administer day to day artificial intelligence activities. Star Trek’s creator, Gene Roddenberry suggested the same thing but they met up and gone to a wrong route. Instead, today individual computers that direct various unique artificial intelligence activities are connected with each other by the internet. With the internet, this new generation of communicators is able to transfer any kind of data to each other without the supervision of a single central administrator. But sure, these individual computers can be control through various methods such as the planting of trojan horse. Nevertheless, that is irrelevant for a while at least.

“Where do you want to go today?” is not owned by the super-giant Microsoft. It is own by the omnipresent World Wide Web.

So, where do you want to go today?
