Hence anyone who seeks for the true causes of miracles, and 

strives to understand natural  phenomena as an intelligent 

being, and not to gaze at them like a fool, is set down and  

denounced as an impious heretic by those, whom the masses adore 

as the interpreters of nature and the gods. Such persons know 

that, with the removal of ignorance, the wonder  which forms 

their only available means for proving and preserving their

authority would vanish also.

Welcome to Cyberheretic's Uncollected Works! 


After being some time in preparation and testing, Cyberheretic 

is now ready for the first official mailing. Here it is. 


You are receiving this because somebody, probably 

you, subscribed you to the Cyberheretic mail list 

at freelists.org. 


This list is created to share some heretic ideas 

about technology and cyberworld. Heretic is a 

person who holds controversial opinions, especially 

one who publicly dissents from the officially 

accepted dogma, in this case the dogma of computer 

and communications technologies. 


Well, we are using technologies (therefore we are 

on this list), and generally we are professionals 

in this trade, but we do not fall for every technology 

buzzword or hype we hear. We have our opinions and want 

to share them with others, to discuss whether some 

new technology is really going to bring quality to our 

lives, or is it just a money-maker for a big company. 


Some example topics could be: Is Linux able to take 

over enterprise computing? Is bluetooth more dangerous 

than cell-phone? Is computer science strangled by 

computer marketing? Quite heretic thoughts, don't you think? 


But, remind - we do not discuss religion here! 

We will also refrain from sending any illegal, 

sexually explicit, or deliberately offensive 

material. However, some thoughts, especially 

those of a heretic kind, may be rendered 

offensive by certain sensitive minds. To those 

we apologize in advance. 


This list is organized more as newsletter, not 

as an open discussion forum. This is for your 

protection, to keep spam mail, multilevel 

marketing, and other trash from entering your 

mailbox through this list. However, you are 

encouraged to send your opinions, or some ideas 

about topics you may wish to see discussed here. 

If we find it interesting for the list population, 

your contributions will find a place here, properly 

credited to the author. See footer info on 

how to contact the list owner. 


As long as this list service remains free, you will find 

no marketing content here. Let's hope for this forever. 


You will receive mailings from this list on irregular 

basis, as content and time permit. The list is 

entirely non-profit, so we have to earn for a living 

in other ways, leaving only our minuscule leisure time 

to spend on keeping this list going. It also depends 

on you - the more usable feedback we get from you, 

the more content we will have to launch out. 


You may wish to keep this e-mail for future reference.


Yours truly,
