Expand your sense of the possible, #2
Hi, it’s me again!
Last week I told you about this green hosting provider I was willing to try out, to serve my website redesign. Well I gave it a go, and now that fredrocha.net is live I’m pumped about it! Read on.
Have you ever felt like the news could also use a little bit of optimistic sunshine, to take the foot off the grim and hopeless pedal? You’re not alone. The guys at Positive.News focus on publishing inspirational examples of things done right. People and orgs who have their sights on The Future, whose endeavours share the hallmark of sustainability.
They even publish a physical magazine, that not only provides great ideas but also looks gorgeous, boasting great design and stunning photos.
Positive.News gives voice to unexpected projects / objects that leave you mulling over throughout the day.
This is probably what the late John Perry Barlow was talking about when he listed his 25 Principles of Adult Behavior and on #4 he suggested you expand your sense of the possible. There is so much more one can do if one dares to look beyond the expected. Something to live by.
From the kottke.org article:
Barlow’s lasting legacy is that he devoted his life to making the Internet into “a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth… a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.”
fredrocha.net now enters the 3rd phase of its life and I’m proud to say it runs fast, it’s SSL encrypted and fully mobile friendly (responsive, in design jargon). Going forward I’ll enjoy sharing even more of my findings and creations over in that corner of the web, in case you’re not already sick of me by then. Eh eh! Let me know what you think of this new iteration, will ya?
I’ve been getting some very stimulating feedback from readers like you, and I thought it would be fun to have an open conversation on the web about this issue. Head over to the web version (or visit the archive page of “Three Things to Know”) and tell us what you were thinking (or listening to) while reading this.
Take care, thanks for reading,
