Global Layer Cake


 

Under the stars I saw my future reflected.

 

 

 

Now when I hear the harmful lusts of others,

   
 

My eyes speak cold eternity . . .

   
 

All shrink from those frosty holes.

Exotic Web Surfing


Robert Louis Stevenson used to write from his dreams ... a far cry from trying to get good grades in school! Searching for web sites without ads may seem artless, driven by dreaming, though I can share some technical tricks. Just remember, expecting results isn't the same thing as dreaming of adventure.

If you "seed" your initial search with unrelated words, you discover websites you'd never expect . . . something from Treasure Island, or maybe Alcatraz!

utopia     pink     piecemeal

angry     storm     lair

quirky     scandalous     ham

treasure     pebbles     attention

executive     transparency     compensation

Once your search engine has given you a range of choices, you might use "Advanced Search" to ask for fifty at a time, or use "Images" to examine web sites with meaningful art. Look for indications of intrinsic quality.

Then throttle into the past. lf you "rule out" subsequent years on the web, by using a minus sign in front of them, you can travel all the way back to . . . 1995! [This is really a hack, dealing with text on a page]

love   luck   rules   1995 -1996 -1997 -1998 -1999 -2000 -2001 -2002 -2003 -2004 -2005 -2006

evil   mountain   fun   1995 -1996 -1997 -1998 -1999 -2000 -2001 -2002 -2003 -2004 -2005 -2006

From such sites, you can go off in unlooked-for directions by examining "Similar pages" – a lot like discovering a secret cellar, with pipes running off beneath, and away from, what the search engine is desperately trying to show you: what you expect, like homework in 10th grade.

Surfing the web shouldn't remind you of work! You, and the droll part of you that lolls around in the morning, and dreams at night, need to find . . . the unexpected! . . . a stray gem . . . and what-all's this? . . . a buried treasure!

The kind of intelligence that knocks at your door.
