Characters: me, narrator

Note I've not been doing a lot of dream documentation lately. That doesn't mean I haven't been having them, it just means that I've prioritized other things.
I was having a fairly coherent run in a dream of being able to type on a keyboard and get what I typed to come up on the screen. Some of the things I was looking for were the usual searches--for my own name or URLs of pages that I have maintained for a long time. None worked. At one point I got tired of doing that and thought I might search for some other things.
Going to the URL bar, I typed in "google.com". Doing so went through a redirect to a website labeled "1/666"; it was still a search engine, but had all kinds of advertisements and a brown background.
me: (to myself) "Argh. Who does this?! Well, we know who does this, but maybe what I mean to say is 'why don't we kill them'. Oh right, right...higher road and all that."
Inspired by the recent announcement of Google Wave, I typed in "future of google apps" into a video search engine. The hit for that was a video that just had four colored dots on it. I couldn't really stay focused on what was being said, so I just skipped ahead to look if the video developed at all--but it was just the dots in different positions.
Note The four colors might have been yellow, red, green, and blue--as from the Google and Chrome logos.
Clicking on another video, I watched what appeared to be a demonstration of storyboarding software for comics. A narrator was speaking while it was being demonstrated, and I started to feel the sensation of laying down.
narrator: "...and by automatically creating patents on every permutation of ideas. The intention is to flood the system--because if they cannot determine which patents are 'authentic' and which are 'illegitimate' then they will have to admit that locking up ideas is a failed concept."
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
