A very inspiring short film for content creators by content creators. Made by Casey Neistat and Max Joseph. A must watch!
I recently read a article by Lauren Gilmore on TheNextWeb where she talked about 8 signs showing that we don’t give a shit about our data. Read that article, and if you find yourself doing anyone of that thing, you really don’t care about your data. 😛
Read the article here.
They’re just using to you so that they can start me up.
They are just using you to start a connection with me.
They are just searching for me through you.
They’re only using you to get to me.
They’re just using you.
Sincerely, Home Work.
Dear Home Work,
They do you so that they can get me.
They get you because they want to through me.
They pass through you just so that they make me.
They make you just so that they can pay my bills.
Daily Prompt – All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be?
Behold all you internet users. This is the Prime Minister speaking (or I think writing). It is a great honour for me to become the prime minister of the internet and I’m here to listen to all your complaints (and praises).
That’s enough bragging. Being at such a high post is not as easy a task as it seems. And handling the whole internet. Woah! Exabytes of data is transmitted everyday or maybe every hour too. And then there is this net neutrality thing at large. Many countries are formulating new and new laws regarding net neutrality and honestly, I don’t know anything about them.
To say the truth, I’m happy with the internet as it is now and don’t need any changes and maybe you don’t too. I can’t imagine how people would live without internet. It has been deeply rooted in our lives. We can even say that it has now become a basic necessity of all humans.
One thing I can do as a prime minister is that I would establish free Wi-Fi in every city. But that is hard to do if corruption enters in the government. Then it would be just a matter of time when those politicians will get unlimited high speed internet and we’ll be left with slow speeds (maybe dial-up, only 56kbps). Haha!
Time to come back to reality. There’s not going to be a government and even if there is, my chance of becoming the prime minister is almost nil.
