How to Blog without an Internet Connection

Now many of us know how to blog however not very many people know how to blog when there is no Internet connection available. Throughout a year or so of blogging I have found a very good and clever way of blogging. It is really quite simple and it allows for a lot of improvising. My current setup includes wherever I am and an old Laptop. When I blog, as I am doing now, I am usually out in nature and in a location other than the basement of my house where I spend the majority of my time. I have chosen an old laptop that does not have an Internet connection or a hard drive. I just write up the blog posts and then when I have access to the Internet I upload it to this blog witch is hosted by wordpress.com.  As with all setups this does have its drawback because of the lack of instant uploads. However I never instant upload any of my blogs. I also set them to either post at 7:00 am or 5:00 pm whichever one suits my fancy at that time.

I feel that this setup allows me to blog to my full potential because it takes away all of the distraction that so commonly plague bloggers. Out in Mother Nature where there is no Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube to distract one’s self.  Out here I found that I can express myself more freely and better deliver the content that is deserved by you, my viewer.

IPv6

What if the Internet ran out of room?
In fact, it’s already happening.

Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist at Google, and a founding father of the Internet, discusses the next version of the Internet, IPv6, and why we need it.

Why is the internet running out of room?

Just as phones use a system of phone numbers in order to place calls, every Internet-connected device gets a unique number known as an “IP address” that connects it to the global online network.

The problem is that the current Internet addressing system, IPv4, only has room for about 4 billion addresses — not nearly enough for the world’s people, let alone the devices that are online today and those that will be in the future: computers, phones, TVs, watches, fridges, cars, and so on. More than 4 billion devices already share addresses. As IPv4 runs out of free addresses, everyone will need to share.

How are we making space to grow?

Clearly the internet needs more IP addresses. How many more, exactly? Well, how about 340 trillion (or, 340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)? That’s how many addresses the internet’s new “piping,” IPv6, can handle. That’s a number big enough to give everyone on Earth their own list of billions of IP addresses. Big enough, in other words, to offer the Internet virtually infinite room to grow, from now into the foreseeable future.

When is the transition happening?

At Google we believe IPv6 is essential to the continued health and growth of the Internet and that by allowing all devices to talk to each other directly, IPv6 enables new innovative services. Replacing the Internet’s plumbing will take some time, but the transition has begun. World IPv6 Launch on June 6, 2012, marks the start of a coordinated rollout by major websites and Internet service and equipment providers.
