What up with the name: "Microsoft is ..."?
Ok, a blog with such a name might be a bit provoking but did you wonder why it is so? This blog is about that - thinking and reflecting as suppose to just reacting. As I traverse the WWW, I notice many things going on with attitudes and opinions which is most likely a reflection of the areas of focus of our minds. For example, hating Microsoft takes up a large part of many forums and even websites. With the people involved here probably a lot of their work and some part of their leisure possibly depends on products by this organisation.
Now, here is the key part to all this. If you feel bad about Microsoft, every time you use its product, you will get a bad sensation. The many times that you feel bad will add up in the course of the day and the cumulate with other things that have made you feel negative. Your day could result in "a bad day" if the total of feel-bads is larger than the total of feel-goods! However, if you can increase the feel good events, your day would be a happier one. So this blog is not about Microsoft really. It is an exploration of the psyche (mine and others) and how changes in perception can change ones experience of life. By the way, perceptions and attitudes are very catching, are they not?
Addition (24 April 2005): There is a book I have just read that looks at how our state of mind is affected by our thoughts and habitual attitudes. I found it very illuminating, so if you are interested, this is an Amazon link to it:
