            Webtopia (EPUB ebook)

            By Lewis, Peter

            Sydney in the 1970s and 1980s was a world of limited choice, one where we all watched the same television programs and the household phone was at the heart of all networks people belonged to: family, school, church and the neighbourhood. The arrival of the internet promised a uto...pian, creative and democratic future that would break down traditional institutions and replace them with exciting collaborative networks. So how did we end up here? In Webtopia, Peter Lewis draws from his own pre- and post-tech experience and conversations with entrepreneurs, politicians, pastors, parents, teachers and journalists to show us that technology is not the problem. We are. If we fix our relationship with technology, it will be easier to fix our relationships with each other in a fragmenting world. Riveting, engaging and wise, Webtopia traces our digital journey to this point and, fearlessly, marks out the best route from here.

            Sveta paints not to please the viewer, but to express her inferiority, intense with meaning that is beyond common sense. Her images seem to be a wonder for her as much as they are for us.

            Market Basket Analysis (MBA) provides the ability to continually monitor the affinities of a business and can help an organization achieve a key competitive advantage. Time Variant data enables data warehouses to directly associate events in the past with the participants in each... individual event. In the past however, the use of these powerful tools in tandem led to performance degradation and resulted in unactionable and even damaging information. Data Warehouse Designs: Achieving ROI with Market Basket Analysis and Time Variance presents an innovative, soup-to-nuts approach that successfully combines what was previously incompatible, without degradation, and uses the relational architecture already in place. Built around two main chapters, Market Basket Solution Definition and Time Variant Solution Definition, it provides a tangible how-to design that can be used to facilitate MBA within the context of a data warehouse. Presents a solution for creating home-grown MBA data marts Includes database design solutions in the context of Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, and Teradata relational database management systems (RDBMS) Explains how to extract, transform, and load data used in MBA and Time Variant solutions The book uses standard RDBMS platforms, proven database structures, standard SQL and hardware, and software and practices already accepted and used in the data warehousing community to fill the gaps left by most conceptual discussions of MBA. It employs a form and language intended for a data warehousing audience to explain the practicality of how data is delivered, stored, and viewed. Offering a comprehensive explanation of the applications that provide, store, and use MBA data, Data Warehouse Designs provides you with the language and concepts needed to require and receive information that is relevant and actionable.

            Her myth got God. It is not the God of a specific religion, of theological arguments, and not an abstract, fully transcendent Creator. It is not all-good, honey-sweet God, not the God of a specific gender, or with a specific name or agenda; not a judgmental, endlessly superior, a...ll-knowing one. It is very homey, even shy, and kind God, who does not know Him/Herself very well, but does understand flawed human condition. And at the same time, this God is fully other, as Mircea Eliade has it, and fully numinous-the real thing. It is the God who can only be super-personal, and come to each person in a unique way. It is a very simple and unpretentious God, who is just this: living meaning. This God is both, the ultimate subject and creator of Sveta's art. If you do not grasp such God, fine: go and find your own meaning. This is, I think, the main message of her art; at least, it is what I receive from it the most vividly: it gives me a sturdy sense of the presence of meaning. Like her God, Sveta's art is homey, warm, approachable, and kind. We all may be fans of Alex Gray and even H.R Giger speaking of the spiritual, the imaginative, the channeling type of art. But, we definitely can use some kindness on canvas. Sveta's art has a confident and distinct voice, and it speaks kindness.

            THE SVETA'S ART PHENOMENON Sveta's art is a state of consciousness as much as it is paper, pencils, and paint. How one can define this phenomenon? I considered myself fit to write about her art as I studied art all my life. First, as an artist, through countless art studios and f...ive years of an art college, then as an art historian, as a philosopher of art, and then as a Jungian psychologist and philosopher. And now, looking at her addictive, colorful pages, I am at total loss. I am in awe. It is deeper than day can comprehend, to borrow Nietzsche's expression, and layered with meaning one usually does not expect to find in art. First of all, Sveta's art is aesthetically beautiful. The composition, the flow and interaction of forms, the visual balance of the color are true. Her sense of when enough is enough is superb. She walks the line between painting too sketchy and over-perfecting the detail with taste and grace. Her mastery of form, the ability to make it speak just what was intended is dynamic and refined. Is Sveta also a colorist? Definitely; the colors come on the paper, like the forms do: freely, unpredictably, in their endless expressive variety. But, Sveta possesses tasteful and well-measured-out rigor, using the colors just so. There is also a certain aesthetically pleasing economy in her work with shapes and colors. Paul Klee said that making art is simple: it's just putting the right color in the right place. This is exactly what Sveta does. Her myth got God. It is not the God of a specific religion, of theological arguments, and not an abstract, fully transcendent Creator. It is not all-good, honey-sweet God, not the God of a specific gender, or with a specific name or agenda; not a judgmental, endlessly superior, all-knowing one. It is very homey, even shy, and kind God, who does not know Him/Herself very well, but does understand flawed human condition. And at the same time, this God is peaoefully other, as Mircea Eliade has it, and fully numinous
