Scribe Fire

| life | blogging | tech |

update 6/11/2024: its neat to read this, I remember how frustrated I felt with the tech, but its so nice to see how far I came since these days.

By the way, I never moved. I wanted to, but it just didn’t happen. Maybe in a different life.

I don’t know what the problem is but when it comes to building websites I can bust out beautiful designs, strong HTML, CSS, etc.

But, when it comes to actually getting thing working on the server side. I am stuck in the stone age - when the internet was nothing more than a bunch of text files, inside jokes, mailing lists, and tables for design. Bleh…

Gotta do some more reading about the entire subject before I make any more wild announcements.

On a brighter note, I am writing this with a Firfox Add-On called ScribeFire, it is pretty neat. I wanted to try out some blogging clients for ubuntu and a lot of them seem to not be in development any longer, which is really a shame.

Check it out if you want an alternative to the web based service, or things like Windows Live.

I am graduating in May with a Psych Degree – I am going to hang it up on my wall and move on to other things. I have no idea what I am going to do, but I am pretty sure I am going to start my second degree and focus on something I actually enjoy this time.. Computer Science. I think I want to change my life goals away from medicine and more toward spreading the good news about technology.

I have always been a firm believer that the digital divide is disgusting, as is proprietary software, and essentially capitalism in general. I want to focus on the technological side of medicine, I want to build programs like (Medical Ubuntu) that provide FREE software to hospitals, clinics, third world countries etc… It makes no sense to me how in the hell people expect doctors in Haiti to pay for an Electronic Record System when they cannot afford a pair of gloves. Let alone pay licensing fees for the software, hardware, firmware, and all that stuff.

Also, I want to do similar things for the educational community. There is no reason why underprivileged schools should be running outdated versions of windows and mac because they cannot afford new computer. GNU/Linux breaths new life into all of these legacy systems and has so much USEFUL software , specifically for education, that I am in a state of complete shock that so many people are being deprived of this simply because of the unethical practices of human commodity trading in health care and education in America.

Ok - I am getting off of my soap box. More to come soon.
