Personal Web of Ideas
This is not what my internet looks like:
A good proportion of my time is spent commenting on articles. It’s the best way to thrash out an argument or continue a discussion.
Media convergence has made this possible.
Blogs are not dissimilar.
The story goes like this:
1. People are not paying for Art any more.
2. Artists will not produce new Art if they don’t get paid.
3. Art will die.
Well, this logic is a load of bulltish, since a lot of Art is done as a hobby anyway. But it points to a broader discussion of copyright.
I intend to be cool
Although, I think being cool is like being a celebrity: If you have to say it, it probably ain't true. Being cool, though, does not just mean being popular: it can mean cold, awesome, interesting, quirky, inspiring, exhilarating, disinterested, bad, calm, wonderful.
So what is information cool?
The Herald Sun and Channel Seven have been the main offenders, while Channel Ten’s The 7 PM Project deserves a fabulous round of applause.
Jason Akermanis’s comments were of course the worst. But worse for the Herald Sun newspaper to publish them.
I just wanna big it up for the Net Communications blog.
It was really cool to check out other student blogs. They gave me a lot of inspiration. But enough ass-kissing…
As this blog is about Australian media, you would think the niche is pretty large. But it really isn’t.
Didn’t the 16th Century happen like 500 years ago? Are people still scared of ideas? What’s going on?
In case you haven’t heard, about ten people got angry about a recent South Park episode which pictures the Islamic prophet Muhammad (think tarot cards, astrology, crystal balls, tea leaves…etc) wearing a bear suit. Fair enough-bear suits deeply offend me as well.
