Brokers - Middlemen or just Broker?

I am an information broker of the Web 2.0 era and as such I may well be broker than ever. Or am I? The richness with which I surround myself transcends simple material wealth, becoming that which I wish it to be only by degrees. Sometimes micro-degrees, as if waiting for summer and it is but early spring. On other occasions the words flow and I spend an entire night writing out the answers to the quests to which I have been drawn.

Last night, indeed quite well into today, was an experience I shall not soon forget. Open season for a well versed writer within the membership of RSBoards. A virtual paradise for me! A break from the game itself; no need to attempt to level-up or train. Unadulterated expressionism; no pressure to perform, just the freedom to be - me.

The game is Runescape, a massively multi-player on-line adventure without the guts and gore of many of today's offerings. I do have a guts and glory type to fool around with on occasion but, I don't make it much past the opening scenes. Match 3/4/5 is more my style.

Perhaps it is that I prefer to create rather than to destroy. To love rather than hate, though I must admit to the knowledge of hate and the power it too holds. Yin/Yang. Without one the other cannot be acknowledged within us. It is our CHOICE to which side we lean and upon whom we seek for support that we do not fall too far one way or the other.

"There's no reason to treat software any differently from other products. Today Firestone can produce a tire with a single systemic flaw and they're liable, but Microsoft can produce an operating system with multiple systemic flaws discovered per week and not be liable. This makes no sense, and it's the primary reason security is so bad today."
Bruce Schneier, Cryptogram, 16/04/2002

Creative writing demands better word selection; interactive word mapping expands your choices.

"In studying the history of the human mind one is impressed again and again by the fact that the growth of the mind is the widening of the range of consciousness, and that each step forward has been a most painful and laborious achievement. One could almost say that nothing is more hateful to man than to give up even a particle of his unconsciousness. Ask those who have tried to introduce a new idea!"
Carl Jung
Swiss psychologist (1875 - 1961)

Would you like the tremendous advantages of mature writing skills plus an expressive style?

ABOUT: The conception and birth of V.O.I.D.

My photo
V.O.I.D. evolved in my sleep; becoming a waking dream which was then compounded by intuitive leaps. Formerly known as "w2w_Webfly's World" this site became the centerpiece of my socio-economic network. As such, the webfly persona no longer served as an iconoclastic representation of what I do here in CyberVille. I am still w2w_Webfly on many sites and will stay such for a while; perhaps gradually shifting screen names to w2wScribe. An attempt to establish an AIM profile registered the name but, not the profile. Ready, fire AIM.
