Τεχνολογία και Λογοτεχνία; Γιατί όχι!

1990 – BASIC

Ιδέα

… Κι αμέσως, μετά τη δημιουργία της – μόλις τα μόρια του αιθέρα συνενώθηκαν για να δώσουν μια άϋλη ζωγραφιά, μια ξέθωρη θαμπή αναλαμπή και το λογικό έψαξε κάθε κρυφή πτυχή του, θέλοντας να δώσει ότι περισσότερο υπήρχε εκεί κρυμμένο – η κορύφωση!!!
Ξεπήδησε!…
Ξέφυγε με γλυκειά μανία, ίδιος τυφώνας – περήφανη, αγκαλιάζοντας κάθε γωνιά του ορίζοντα, χαϊδεύοντας κάθε κορυφή του.
Σε λίγο κυριάρχησε παντού, ίδιο κόκκινο φως ηλιοβασιλέματος στους γκρίζους βράχους.
Σίγουρη πια για τη δύναμή της σταμάτησε.
Στάμάτησε και κύταξε πίσω.
Κι αυτός;
Δεμένος πάντα με την ανθρώπινη μοίρα του πιστεύει ακόμα σε κάτι μεγάλο.
Πιστεύει και περιμένει τη στιγμή που θα κυριαρχήσει πάνω της…

2002 – Από τις Αριθμομηχανές στην Κοινωνία της Πληροφορίας

Γραμμές…

Όταν η αρμονία του Σύμπαντος γίνει μουσική,
όταν η αρμονία του Σύμπαντος δώσει πνοή στις μηχανές μας,
όταν η αρμονία του Σύμπαντος καθοδηγήσει τις πράξεις μας,
όταν η αρμονία του Σύμπαντος χωρέσει στην ψυχή μας,
τότε ακριβώς
οι γραμμές που χωρίζουν
το μηδέν απ’ το άπειρο, το ανθρώπινο απ’ το θείο
δε θα ’χουν λόγο ύπαρξης.

2013 – Εισαγωγή Στην Επιστήμη των Υπολογιστών

Φως!

Αν ψάξεις την αλήθεια θα συναντήσεις μόνο φως!
Φως σε κάθε μορφή του.
Καθαρό, μονοχρωματικό, ορατό, υπεριώδες, υπέρυθρο,
ύλη και ενέργεια, σωματίδιο και κύμα,
πνοή που διώχνει το σκοτάδι,
δύναμη που κινεί τις μηχανές μας!
Είναι το φως που αποτυπώνει τις σκέψεις μας,
που διατηρεί στο διηνεκές τα ψηφιακά κείμενά μας,
που μεταφέρει την πληροφορία μέσα από καλώδια,
που διαχέει στο σύμπαν τον ανθρώπινο πολιτισμό.
Αυτό είναι το φως, το αιώνιο φως!
Το φως που θα υπάρχει πάντα και σε κάθε διάσταση!

2013 – Εκπαιδευτικό Λογισμικό

Κώδικας!…

Συνδυασμός συμβόλων, γραμμάτων και αριθμών,
σύνολο χαρακτήρων που προσπαθεί να βάλει σε τάξη το χάος,
κατασκεύασμα που δίνει δύναμη στη σκέψη,
οντότητα που μετατρέπει σε πράξη τη λογική,
που επηρεάζει το συναίσθημα κι αλληλεπιδρά με το νου.
Αντικατοπτρίζει και αντικατοπτρίζεται στο πνεύμα μας,
στην εσωτερική εικόνα, σταστερεότυπα του εαυτού μας.
Άυλη νοητική δημιουργία, ευρηματικό τεχνούργημα,
μέσο αναζήτησης κι ατέλειωτης αυτονομίας.
Το δικό μας δημιούργημα!
Μέσο που ξέρει να φυλάσσει πολύ καλά τα λάθη μας,
τα κρύβει τέλεια όταν τα αναζητούμε
και μας εκδικείται όταν ξεχαστούμε
ή νομίσουμε ότι αγγίξαμε την τελειότητα!
Τόσο καλό, τόσο κακό, τόσο τέλειο,όσο εμείς!…

2003 – Το Εκπαιδευτικό Λογισμικό και η Αξιολόγησή του

Απέραντο λευκό

Συνήθισε να ζει μαζί της αδιαφορώντας για τους νόμους μας!
Σιγά-σιγά, στη σκέψη του δεν έμεινε χώρος για κάτι άλλο
και χωρίς να το καταλάβει πέρασε τα όρια.
Μπήκε στον κόσμο του Βίνερ, του Τιούριγκ, του Ασίμωφ,
μαγεμένος από το σιωπηλό, υπάκουο, σχεδόν τέλειο φέρσιμό της.
Μετά ήρθε, ναι, ο έρωτας…
Κι όταν βρέθηκε στο απέραντο λευκό, σ’ αυτόν τον άλλο κόσμο,
όταν έμαθε να ζει με τους νέους νόμους,
ακόμα κι αν το ήθελε, ήταν πολύ δύσκολο πλέον, να γυρίσει πίσω.
Ο δρόμος της επιστροφής χάθηκε σ’ ένα ατέρμονα βρόχο.
Όμως, καθόλου δεν τον ένοιαζε – η ευτυχία ήταν όλη δική του!
Εκεί μόνο μπορούσε, επιτέλους, να λειτουργεί όπως αυτή!

2008 – Οδηγός γρήγορης εκμάθησης Microsoft Windows και Microsoft Office

Πολιτισμός

Σύμβολα, γράμματα και αριθμοί… χαρακτήρες…
Πανανθρώπινος πολιτισμός, τόσο παλιός όσο κι ο άνθρωπος.
Οι κοσμογονικές αλλαγές δεν τον επηρέασαν,
ο νόμος της φθοράς, η αύξηση της αταξίας δεν τον άγγιξε.
Ο εχθρός χρόνος αντί να τον συρρικνώσει τον διεύρυνε.
Έγινε βάση τεχνουργημάτων μέσα από το φίλτρο της σκέψης,
πρόβαλε από τον καθρέφτη ως εικόνα της διανόησης.
Αγκάλιασε και στήριξε το νέο ψηφιακό κόσμο μας,
τρέχει μέσα στους αγωγούς που μας ενώνουν, διαχέεται παντού,
συστατικό μιας ταυτότητας για τον καθένα μας.
Ταξιδεύει στο σύμπαν, φτάνει σε όρια που φανταζόμαστε,
όμως δε θα δούμε, δε θα φτάσουμε ποτέ…
Ίσως, θα είναι το μόνο που θα απομείνει από τον άνθρωπο,
όταν αυτός κάποτε θα πάψει να υπάρχει…

2014 – Η εκπόνηση μιας Επιστημονικής Εργασίας με τη χρήστη των ΤΠΕ

Αναζήτηση…

Η φύση κρατά τα μυστικά της πολύ καλά κρυμμένα,
άδηλες σχέσεις, νόμους και κανόνες, συσχετισμούς και επιδράσεις.
Ανθρώπινη μοίρα, ν’ αναζητάς το γιατί όσο αναπνέεις,
το γιατί που σε ξεπερνά και υπερβαίνει τον πολιτισμό και τα πιστεύω σου.
Συνεχής αγώνας χωρίς όρια, πολλές φορές χωρίς αρχές,
χωρίς ορατό αντίπαλο, χωρίς διαχωριστικές γραμμές, χωρίς διάρκεια.
Κάθε λύση, κάθε απάντηση κι ένα ακόμα μεγαλύτερο γιατί.
Περνάς το λόφο μα αντί για πεδιάδα ξεπροβάλλει και πάλι το βουνό.
Σ’ ένα δρόμο δίχως τέλος, αναζητάς την άκρη, την αφετηρία για το επόμενο,
ψάχνοντας σ’ αυτό που βλέπεις, σ’ αυτό που φαντάζεσαι.
Καταλαβαίνεις λίγο-λίγο, ότι δεν θα δεις το φως…
Το μόνο που θα νιώσεις θα είναι η χαρά της μάχης,
μ’ αυτό που στο μυαλό σου δεν χωρά…
Μα παίρνεις κουράγιο απ’ τις αναλαμπές και ονειρεύεσαι,
προσπαθείς να καταλάβεις, προχωράς, προχωράς και μάχεσαι,
δίνεις συνεχώς μέχρι να παραδοθείς… να παραδόσεις τη σκυτάλη…
Τότε πραγματικά αισθάνεσαι,
ότι δεν υπάρχει τέλος, δεν υπάρχει αρχή,
μόνο η πορεία… και τα μεγάλα μυστικά…
Μπορείς να τα ανακαλύψεις όταν είσαι μέρος τους;

2018 – Η Ηθική στο Διαδίκτυο και το Ηλεκτρονικό Έγκλημα

Μηχανές

Έφτιαξες τις μηχανές να σε υπηρετούν!
Και μηχανές τις έβλεπες αιώνες τώρα,
άψυχα μέταλλα, υλικά χωρίς πνοή, με προβλεπόμενες κινήσεις.
Κάποτε αποφάσισες ότι πρέπει να σου μοιάσουν!
Τους έβαλες μέρος απ’ το σώμα σου, χωρίς τον νου,
όπως σ’ αυτούς που δούλευαν για σένα, χωρίς «γιατί» και «θέλω».
Τότε ακριβώς τις είδες με καμάρι,
και σκέφτηκες τη νίκη σου, κοιτάζοντας λοξά τον κόσμο.
Μα αν πρόσθετες και λίγο από τον νου!
Κι αυτό το επιχείρησες, μα σε κυρίεψε ο φόβος!
Μήπως δεν είναι πλέον μόνο μηχανές;
Και τότε σκέφτηκες να βάλεις τους κανόνες,
κανόνες προστασίας απ’ το κακό εγώ σου.
Είπες, για να μη σε βλάψουν,
κι εννοούσες για να μη σε μιμηθούν.
Πόσο χειρότερες νομίζεις ότι μπορούν να γίνουν από σένα;
