From the pyramid
We are creating for ourselves a universe within
of seemingly unlimited
space and possibility.
This space which we create and control, live and work in. Cyberspace.
The time has come for
society to discard the old ways and think about what we can do with all
this knowledge and processing power.
My nick is wrathex
and the wormhole above is my avatar.
I have an avid interest in futurism, science fiction, cyberculture and the future of society in general.
I was born in Wynberg Cape Town and spent my childhood playing cowboys and crooks, riding bicycles and catching tadpoles in the nearby vlei on the Cape Flats in Kenwyn.

I went to a Mail & Guardian Online Forum meet Feb 2009
The meet was held at the coffeeshop of Exclusive Books in the waterfront, Cape Town on Sunday 25th of February 2009 at 3pm.
Six forum members attended; Taliesin, Fyrebird, Thandanani, Toppie, nukedNightjar and myself wrathex, we sat outside on the patio, it was a lovely afternoon weatherwise, the conversation was easy and flowed, and we chatting while drinking coffee.
I stayed a bit longer after the other members had left, chatting to Toppie and we had some more coffee, after which we drove around the Greenpoint stadium construction works, and I eventually dropped him at his hotel. a successful meet concluded
Toppie is an elder from Durban and a active Mail & Guardian Forum member.
Online the Mail & Guardian Forum crowd are a mature group of members, most are well read and ready to debate any issue with you, especially politics.
There are many different types of forum/blog/web communities and I tried a few where I did not fit in, I think that's normal, however I moved on and eventually found a few niche communities online where we gelled.
The Mail & Guardian Forum will be shutdown on Friday 19th of June 2009, forum members have migrated to the Primrose Forum and Dementia Forum.
The very latest news at M&G Forum is that it will remain operational and not be closing soon.

Elucia's Random Log
She stopped for a moment panting. She rested, refreshed her log,
catalogued the random bytes that had joined her since her last rest,
dedicated most of them and kept one, as she always did.
Scanning the matrix, she calculated the approach of the snifferbots,
mapped the rnumber, adjusted her buffer.
" I like running anyway... .. ... ", her whisper echoed down the path,
bouncing back at her, she verified her route, running swiftly, the stray
byte by her side, and disappeared into the vast network.
I also went to a Prophecy Forum meet at Quay 4 in Cape Town's waterfront on 31 May 2009A table had been booked in advance at the upstairs restaurant and it was rather balmy and warm inside in contrast to the cold weather outside.
I had a superb rare steak, with madagaskar pepper sauce, everyone's food looked good, and it had better,
Q4 has touristy prices, but my meal was worth it.
It was a nice crowd and I felt comfortable, people had interesting things to say and we had many laughs too.

is happening and people are meeting and making new friends
online all the time.
There are many little communities of locals and people from across the country are talking to each other and socialising.
You will meet them on Forums, on Twitter, on Blogs, on IRC, Facebook, MySpace to mention but the most popular of the places.
Once you become a regular poster it's easy to make friends with people, who like you, sit behind computers all day with broadband and
who enjoy having someone to chat or share with now and then to break the solitude.
I have been to several Meets over the years and it's always been fun and a thrill to meet the friends you have made behind the avatar or nick.
