I am John Adams and you have entered my Blog. I decided to start blogging from the grave due to the preponderance of mistruths and inaccuracies that have spread across the people by virtue of biographical books and television series. It appears that a host of lecherous pundits and writers have jumped on the John Adams bandwagon. Even in the grave, these hangers-on are annoying and aggravating. So, good people, I have decided to enter the Blogesphere, as i believe it is called, not to correct the inaccuracies of what has been written about me, but to comment on what is happening now. My goal is to answer the question: "what would John Adams say about that?" I trust a colonial perspective, steeped in common sense and patriotism, will prove interesting and helpful to those living now. Your comments and responses are welcome, however, please remeber that i am dead and will not be able to respond to all items immediately or ever or while you are on the other side.
What would I say?
The New Empire, Google, has introduced it’s App Engine program to the public. Their approach to introducing App Engine has been employed successfully for generations. You make the product readily available and virtually free, then you turn the customer into a crack whore. In this case, a web crack whore. Of course. like a good web crack whore you must allow your pimp (let’s call him Googie Bear) access to your code. Googie Bear may also want to own part of you if you show promise. I’m not sure what happens if Googie Bear decides that you should get closer and you say “no”. You may have grown somewhat dependent on Googie Bear so saying “no” may be tough and pimp slaps can leave a mark. In my day we would either pay a bit more for independence or strap on a Colonial rubber to be safe. The choice is yours. Your are free thanks largely to me.blog comments powered by Disqus
