There Is A Fear

There is a fear in the darkness
A fear that makes crows scare
Passengers mutilated in likeness
For a purpose beyond the fair.

People in dissaray, glaring so bright
From another world, built out of sight
For a stallion of breaches
In the core of the sea where the Siren preaches
In stains of blood a song of the ages
Down, down, in the old rusted cages.

There’s a story with no title

There’s a story with no title, that no one ever read.

On a bookshelf filled with dust and dreams, it lies on aching dread.

There’s no title to this story, for the title is long gone.

The abyss waits for its redemption, like an everlasting song.

It’s a story you can’t read, for the title makes it weed.

It’s just like all the others, appearing in a time of absolutely zero need.

There’s no story to this title, no action, no beginning and just nothing here to learn.

It’s just a story like no other. With no title, no meaning and it’s just absurd.

Lost In A Story Of Personal Vengeance With Oneself

A lot of us are broken,
A lot of us leave in fear
For gratitude we hold no token,
We run scared from things that never really appear.
They twist the kinded soul
Like gusts of wind from kindred spirits
Resembling thorny pieces of charcoal
They fall with darkness and no merits.

Never again will they ever regain
The great white-headed beauty they once held
Only because they can not retain
The Power they had.. for now it is jailed
In their prison of hatred, doom and anxiety
So when they smile at you, you feel they are dead
You cry in lonely revery for their striking dread
Swearing upon an ice-cold star that you will seek propriety

The End of Slumber

When the bards sang their song,
We knew the timing was wrong
The days had passed out to the past
The decay was coming fast.

Hearing riders, four in their number,
The world was beyond its slumber
As things trembled in the world,
The question remained: what did we do of what we were told?

Did I mention me and Lucian started writing Lore again? :D

Yup, so we decided to continue writing Lore.

After finding dictation.io it seemed like a great thing to do.

We’ve recovered our past texts, because Lore was initially a horror movie; we then turned it into a TV show; now it’s a full on novel.

Chapter 1 and 2 are almost ready, so that’s pretty exciting as well and we have a couple of sketches from other chapters.

Because Wix Acquired Deviant Art, I somehow ended up building a homepage I’d designed 7 years ago

This article https://techcrunch.com/2017/02/23/website-builder-wix-acquires-art-community-deviantart-for-36m/?ncid=rss&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Techcrunch+%28TechCrunch%29&utm_content=FaceBook&sr_share=facebook helped give birth to the current homepage I have on florins.co

It made me remember all those amazing years of being a part of the Deviant Art community. I’ve created my first account 11 years ago.

#justimaginethat

People didn’t even use hashtags back then. #justsayin

Since then I’ve done a shitload of amazing things. Became an actual, paid and professional designer, managed an IT company, started my first startup, failed my first startup, founded and funded (with Angel Investment money) my second startup which is still growing strong (we’re in our 5th year), fell in love, like super in love, married that remarkable woman, became the parent of the most awesome boy in the Universe, became wiser, smarter, mentored lots of young entrepreneurs (and even some older than me). I won awards in the tech field. I won a national literature award.

So many things changed since then.

Today I’ve also realized that I’m still watching the same anime I started watching when I was a pre-teen. And then when I was a teen. And now when I’m a father. Because the series just keeps evolving, and believe it or not it’s getting new episodes. Yes, I’m looking at you Dragon Ball.

Anyway, so I was discussing with my best friend about this weird news. We are both deviants for 11 years now (who knew time flew so fast?). While discussing the news, I’ve checked my old webdesign sketches. And I found my favorite design of all times.

It was supposed to be my homepage back in 2010. Well, 7 years later it REALLY is my homepage.

Cheers! (and cheers to me for finally making it happen)

Here’s an idea from Forbes 2016 that I stated back in 2011

4. Traditional website power will decline.

Traditional websites are being robbed of their power in a few different ways. For starters, apps are becoming radically more popular as a means of acquiring information and tapping into online functionality; Google’s getting into the action here with more intensive features for app-based search visibility, accelerating what may be a natural course. Digital assistants are also closing in on traditional sites’ territory, providing immediate answers from their respective databases for common questions, and providing immediate functionality whenever possible. As digital assistants and apps in general become more popular, I expect demand and visibility for traditional websites to significantly decline.”

Yes, I have said this in 2011. That’s why in Cif2.net at that time a thriving new startup, we’ve implemented a digital assistant.

Your website was speaking directly to you and communicating with the other users and websites in the Cif2.net environment.

We called it “smart sites” back then. I guess the term now would be “intelligent sites”
