    As you read in his final blog post our “brave” hero had come face to with his archenemy, reality.

  • In Conclusion
    Posted by barnes on December 23, 2015 at 3:25 am

    My aim with the project was not to find an answer, but engage with and add to this discourse that I find very important. The “sexual emotional aesthetic network,” has endured a disruption and shift in its feeling (networked). Though The Sluts deals with a website, again, it is used to generate hookups as the … Continue reading In Conclusion […]

    In a 1980’s film, “Cruising” comes across the opening scene’s screen in large, slow, rolling words. This makes a big and clear statement. Directed and written by William Friedkin, as well as the writer of the novel it is based on, Gerald Walker, the film offers a historical context to this project.

    Donald Trump’s callous statements on Twitter have caused for intense backlash.  Because @realDonaldTrump represents the “real” Donald Trump, the account is susceptible to much more scrutiny for it’s demeanor than compared to something fake like a parody Twitter account.  What seems to be greatly influenced by Trump’s Twitter account is a new savage trending topic called, #KillTrump.

  • Final Blog Secondary Source: Gamification and Social Media
    Posted by James Steenland on December 13, 2015 at 11:45 pm

    For my final project’s secondary source I am using Cliff Lampe’s “Gamification and Social Media” from the book The Gameful World: Approaches, Issues, Applications by Sebastian Deterding and Steffen P. Walz. According to Lampe, “The term gamification has been used to describe a particular set of technical features common in games to shape social processes … Continue reading Final Blog Secondary Source: Gamification and Social Media […]

    For my final project on the impact of social networks on social connectivity I will utilize both primary and secondary sources. My secondary source for this project is Sociability, Interpersonal relations, and the Internet: Reconciling conflicting Findings written by Norman H Nie.

    Posted by holloway on December 11, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    I feel like transcribing the process of how I arrived at my secondary source and how I am feeling about the project itself is of value considering the potentially shifting nature of this thing. I both hate and love the research aspect of this project because at the present moment it feels good to start … Continue reading Call of Duty: Georges Bataille’s Ghost […]

  • #AllLivesMatter, EverybodyVsEverybody, and “What do you mean ‘White Flight'”?
    Posted by Ed on December 10, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    I’ve always had an issue with the “Detroit Vs. Everybody” meme/slogan/branding. Sure, originally, I thought it was awesome, as a Colored (and, I will point out, one more reason why my usage of that word is more precise than other terms is because of the implication that race is a thing that has been done … Continue reading #AllLivesMatter, EverybodyVsEverybody, and “What do you mean ‘White Flight'”?

  • Best Death
    Posted by holloway on December 10, 2015 at 6:30 pm

    So much for not being bummed out. The notion that Jennifer Malkowski puts forward about the aesthetics of death videos in “Streaming Death” is pretty horrifying. That Hollywood blockbusters have over utilized the hand-cam to the point that they have created a reverse-emotional effect on the viewer of real death videos is something hard to … Continue reading Best Deat […]

  • How do we analyze web death?
    Posted by Deep on December 10, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    Violence is more and more prevalent in our society. Not because it is actually increasing, but rather we are able to capture it now and share it on the web. When we see these things on the news there is a level of censorship that allows only so much to be see. With the ability … Continue reading How do we analyze web death? […]

  • 12/10/15: Dying Online
    Posted by Emily on December 10, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    I wish that recollections like Tressie Cottom’s were uncommon, and that incidents of racial injustice surprised me, but Cottom’s story parallels so many others that I’ve heard. The description of how officers treated her upon arrest was difficult to read, describing how they “laughed”, looking down her shirt. It’s disgusting. Digital environments provide us with … Continue reading 12/10/15: Dying Onlin […]

  • A Roaring Wave of Awareness
    Posted by Chris on December 10, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Trayvon Martin was a spark in a gasoline-covered country, and by gasoline I mean police brutality towards black Americans. Trayvon’s case was the thing that ignited the call for a change, a change under the title #BlackLivesMatter. This hashtag has gone on to be the online megaphone to preaching equality for black Americans. After the … Continue reading A Roaring Wave of Awareness […]

  • Oblivious Witnessing: Malkowski and the Appeal of Captured Death
    Posted by No One McMullen on December 10, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    In the wake of Bazin’s “Death Every Afternoon”, the panoptic capability of our networked age has led to death every second, every microsecond, a last gasp bottled and rendered accessible at any moment, lurking behind keystrokes. One only needs to look at the popularity of such sites as LiveLeak and r/MorbidReality, among others, to realize … Continue reading Oblivious Witnessing: Malkowski and the Appeal of Captured Deat […]

  • Prof. Mirzeoff, It Hurts My Eyes To Keep Looking
    Posted by barnes on December 10, 2015 at 5:05 pm

    Don’t look away…from the ground heavily soiled with the blood of a Black boy’s body. The first thing I noticed, other than the title, of  Mirzeoff’s article was how the street was soiled, only in the area of the memorial where Brown’s body laid slain for “four and a half” hours…like roadkill. I love that … Continue reading Prof. Mirzeoff, It Hurts My Eyes To Keep Looking […]

  • “The Camera. Doesn’t. Lie.”
    Posted by newton on December 10, 2015 at 4:47 pm

    It is hard to think about death. What’s harder is to imagine that we can be “anesthetized” to the supposed power of the dead. Like any obscenity, it seems one can grow accustomed to it. I never used to swear, but was rather known as He Who Does Not Swear. Swearing makes swearing familiar to … Continue reading “The Camera. Doesn’t. Lie.&rdquo […]

    With the semester wrapping up (phew!) I have been busy sifting around a semester’s full of theory and notions in my head. In part to come to some sort of conclusion that affirms the feeling of living in the networked society. And partly to draw up a cogent, workable plan for my final project, which … Continue reading Preamb […]

In particular these articles describe theories of socialized trends in regards to online connectivity.

  • Something More than Spectators: Streaming Death
    Posted by James Steenland on December 10, 2015 at 3:35 pm

    In Nicholas D Mirzoeff’s article “How Ferguson and #BlackLivesMatter taught us not to look away,” he titles the movement seen on social media in which “visual media are making social change” as “visual activism.” One form of visual activism is posting videos of death on YouTube, and as Jennifer Malkowski explains in “Streaming death: the … Continue reading Something More than Spectators: Streaming Deat […]

  • ????????????? I still don’t understand
    Posted by mahmutovic on December 10, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    Jennifer Malkowksi asks in terms of documentary death in film “Why should we make and look at them?” My answer to this would have to be another question. Why SHOULDN’T we? What makes us or our lives different than the people we view in these films? After all, could we not one day be in their … Continue reading ????????????? I still don’t understand […]

  • Show Me The Big Mac!
    Posted by Daniel on December 9, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    The role of tactical media, I think, is crucial for the population of modern America.  Let me start out by saying I hate commercials for many reasons. Not only do I find them annoying, I also think they really feed into people’s mentality in a very negative way. Like Hannah said, tactical media is a way to fight … Continue reading Show Me The Big Mac! […]

  • Final Project Project Proposal

    For my final project I wanted to continue my analysis of sex/sexuality in our modern culture. Originally I was going to talk about the Netflix original documentary Hot Girls Wanted, but I felt there was something more that I wanted to accomplish. I eventually came up with the idea of making a new blog where … Continue reading Final Project Project Proposa […]

  • Proposal: Untitled Vaporwave Project
    Posted by No One McMullen on December 8, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    As probably all of you know by now (i’ve certainly talked about it enough), my final project will take the form of a Tumblr on which I’ll be discussing the aesthetic concerns of vaporwave, as well as why vaporwave has become a form that these aesthetic concerns (supercapitalism, Marxism, accelerationism, etc.) are expressed through. In short: vaporwave is … Continue reading Proposal: Untitled Vaporwave Project […]
