The power of modern communicationBy Brenda Essig aka Zanymuse (Zanymuse) on November 9, 2010
|The www offers us a Wider Window into the World. Cubits.org makes that window more efficient. Using the easy tools and options provided anyone can create their own web space to explore the possibilities, meet people, discover new ideas and revisit old ones. You can set up your cubits space to do all that and more. And it's FREE!|
On the internet we can find others who share our interests no matter what those interests are. We can share our knowledge and experience with those who are seeking information. We can build friendships and develop groups.
I was able to see the power of this amazing technology first hand through my Dad. He was a Baptist preacher. The Church and the Bible were his life and when his health made it necessary for him to retire from the pulpit he was left feeling useless and his feeling of self worth began to present as depression. His physical limitations were less important at that point than the depression. Depression was reducing his quality of life. He needed a way to interact with people again. He needed to teach. He needed a congregation to watch over.
This is not about his religion, it is about his NEED to feel active again. The same NEED applies to all of us. We NEED to be a part of the world we live in. Because of my Dad's need, I began to learn about establishing a web site and was able to provide him with an outlet for his knowledge. Over the next few years, that site grew and his depression shrank. He looked forward to the comments from visitors to the site and excited when he realized that he was recieving visitors from across the nation and then from around the globe. He set up a map to pinpoint the locations of his guests and he was inspired to finish writing two books.
The internet gave him back a reason to awaken in the morning. When he passed away we recieved messages from over a thousand people who had become close to my dad through that website. They were grateful for all he had given them. I was grateful for all they had given to him.
That was before cubits and it took me weeks to figure out how to set it up and make his web page work. I struggled to learn the ropes and pull it all together. With cubits it would have been much faster and easier!
The internet is a place where people of all ages, races, creeds, can come together and learn from each other, learn to appreciate our differences and interact with people which we might otherwise never have had a chance to get to know.
You don't have to be a shut-in to enjoy the WWW (Wider Window to the World)! Let Cubits.org give you that window now!
Many shy people find it possible to "speak out" in a forum when they would not be able to do so in a face-to-face situation.
We don't ask if the helpful information we are given is from an young person or an elderly person. We don't care if they are beautiful or disfigured. We don't care if they are of a different racial makeup, if they are fat or thin, rich or poor. We get to know them for the information they share with us and the way they respond to us. We learn by a person's responses if they are humorous, always serious, silly, knowledgeable, or friendly.
When we establish our own cubit we have control that we do not have when visiting other sites. We set the tone for our site and we can edit out or block anything or anyone that we find offensive. That is a wonderful feeling, to have control and to be able to make our web home as safe and comfortable as our real life homes.
There are countless arenas for us to participate on the Internet. Blogs, chat rooms, forums, personal web sites, news sites...the possibilities are almost endless. Here at Cubits.org we have been given a unique opportunity to set up our own Internet presence where we can introduce ourselves and get to know others.
