Speeding up the Internet

Australia. Yes, we do have a great country, but I feel like in some areas were are being ripped off. We have to pay more than double the amount for consumer goods than Americans do (in most cases), we have to travel further to reach overseas destinations AND our internet speed is one of the […]

The Interactive Audience. Here before, here now and here to stay.

In the lecture, it was asked if people actually want to or have time for interactivity. I’m going to say…. yes. And I think many other people would agree. The other day I was reading an article in mX which contained a quote from a man named Ben Huh. He is the CEO of The […]

I know I am six years late in discovering this, but it reminded me of the content of DIGC202- growth of internet technologies, user created content, social networks, citizen journalism, creation, remixing, […]

Week Six Summary- Media Convergence

Right now as I am writing this blog post, it has been the second day that the internet has been down in my house because of a problem with the modem router. Thank god (or Jobs?) for 3G on my iPhone and iPad. But as much as I love Jenkins’ idea of convergence, and how […]

This copying culture has forced designers to “up their game” and be more innovative, which has led to designs being too hard to copy. She says that there creative industries […]
