blogleaks

As the world is becoming more immersed with the internet and the issue of privacy there have been an increase in websites exploiting this privacy issue. People who can publish on the net have taken the responsibility of publishing certain documentations and letters that the government is hiding. Wikileaks has done this, and also a another website called Unileaks has taken on this same trend by revealing letters from World universities that have done wrong.

Well now I would like to present to you blogleaks. This posting has nothing to do with privacy issues as all the material I put on this site is published already. However, i am taking this trend of leaks and turning it into something that showcases not private documentation but published documentation. I will put up blogs that are wrong, that are un-factual and the grammar is poor. As there are alot of blogs out there now, and anyone can post information it can be a crime against properly published material. It could be an insult to the publishing companies who strive to make written material perfect. It is time to show the public all the bad blogs out there.

1. http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2011/04/13/side-view-of-the-death-star-moon/

Now this blog, has no relevant information. It is a waste of publishing space. The grammar and language is of low quality and is colloquial, ask yourself what do you gain from reading this blog?

This blog is trying to bad mouth other blogs, but the grammar here is one of the worst I have seen. He points out the wrong doings of other people’s blogs but does not see his own mistakes.

Thank you for reading my blogleaks. This trend is becoming more and more popular. A lot of average people can publish material and this is the way of the future. Do we really need publishing agency anymore? The Internet is an open ended tool that allows these so called ‘leak’ sites to be able to publish such things. What can the world do about it?

ARTS9020 – People, Attention & Commons

Welcome everyone to the subject Arts9020. Yes you probably haven’t heard of this subject or seen it in your subject list but this is a very special subject that is needed to have a more comprehensive understanding of people, attention and the commons within the media world.

Beginning of the first and only week of this course haha! We shall look at people as a whole and how new technologies has created a whole new way for them to publish a mass amount of media around the world. The main technology we are talking about here is the Internet. Because the Internet is largely accessible to many people around the world, a lot of information is published. Anyone or anything can put something up on the internet. The only way to become successful on the Internet is to have attention. If your site has a lot of people clicking onto it, reading it and viewing it then your published material is the most worthy. Attention becomes capital gain. Yes ATTENTION BECOMES CAPITAL GAIN! It’s not physical money or any sort of publishing company, it is the attention that you receive from the people that makes your publishing a success

To understand this more please look at the required readings

The second half of this course looks at the idea of commons.

What is this commons you ask? basically it is many differing cultures, ideologies and religions coming together to form one common direction for modern society. For a modern example we can look at Facebook. Look at the millions of people who use it. People from all sorts of cultures are unified under one social network site. Everyone uses it in the same way to interact with each other. It is a common design throughout the world.
