WHY I (HAVE TO) LOVE MEDIA

As it is a known fact media is ubiquitous and we are consumed within it. Despite the fact that media comes in various shapes, I mainly interact with social networks, mobile phone, movies and newspapers. Although I value newspapers and movies, I cannot elaborate on them any further considering the fact that I only employ …

Sinfull Love

For someone who is very pessimistic and dreadfull about the future of media, I sure do use it an awfull lot.  Me pessimism is mainly rooted in a distrust of very rich and powerfull people. I honestly believe very few of them concern themselves with the best interests for the human community at large. Besides, I’ve read Frankenstein, I honestly do not understand the drive to create self thinkink machines that monitor our behavior. Thats like giving The Monster of Frankenstein an endless resevoir of knowlegde and removing his compassion enirely. After all, Frankesntein was in a way, human like. Not a cold thinking machine like we create. So alltogether, to put it simlply, I do not see a happy ending to this upwards spiral of machine and media evolution.  Sure am happy i don’t need to refer to litirature for this blog, because if I would have, my statement would fall apart pretty quickly I fear, or perhaps hope.  So about my love, I love movies, I love litirarature, I dislike youtube, I despise socail media. I do however use a lot of youtube, it stands between me and a total butlerian jihad on a personal level. Youtube provides easy, mindnumming content in wich I revel. I very much dislike the algorithms, the commercials, the way it so desperately tries to crack your brain and seduce you into watching more content and ofcourse, more commercials.But It’s so very tempting.  Maybe one day I will limit my usage of media to the things I …
