today i’m coming to terms with the realistic situation that yesterday i lost my ipod touch.
if it were a person it might have left home because i’m making friends with android.
in accepting that it’s gone i’m left thinking about what is on the device that i can be upset about loosing.
it’s loosing all those written memos of thoughts, ideas, little poems about things that made me feel upset.
i’m surprised i’m not more fraught with upset. i’ve asked at the supermarket where i last had it in my hand and phoned the museum i went to later.
i see the benefits of constantly streaming data to the cloud.
all this happening on a day when there is a news report about the climate change thing in copenhagen. yet more talk about carbon reduction and fossill fuel stuff re energy generation.
i’m left wanting to use the cloud and have to trust those in the positions of maintaining the infrastructure to generate all the neccessary power to maintain the cloud for my useage in a manner that’s going to not make any worse the situation of the planet’s warming up.
those maintaning the infrastructure have known for a long time that the need to manintain the situation in a modified manner is required.
i’m sad i’ve lost my ipod touch and i’m sad that i’m considering increasing the burden on those maintaining the generation of power so that in the future when i loose something else, all my precious thoughts and ideas are stored safely in the cloud.
