Today’s Web Laureate Classic Insight into last weekend’s poem…

I Just Started My FriendFeed

There?

there was a time, none too long ago, where people in a twitter-plus environment could easily share, group, and have meaningful conversations, and information aggregations

When?

when it was strong, it was a lively community, very powerful in providing a rich combination of modes of communication and information — as is the emotions this poetic work seeks to evoke

Digg: Labored

Out

one of the oldest of the crowdsourced news, digg is currently undergoing a re-do — much needed, most difficult

Out

the title: labored — (1) rebirth (2) strained service – people may already have lost interest; never to return

Google: malware

my

with powers increasing we must all look back to what once was the mistake of erroneously flagged human inflicted error upon many as malware — who / what can check the googley power

my

from the words of growing first part of "mal" on the left, combining with the growing force of "ware" together, can sometimes combine into that perfect storm of malware warnings and alerts — rocking the world and those so (erroneously) branded

btw

the original title of this work was spelled with "malware" with the final ‘e’ being a schwa — but due to the limitations of wordpress I was unable to convey this element

Tumblr Around

quick…

very common on tumblr for people to re-blog one another; often creating circles of circles of content — every two consecutive words (as well from last to first) link up to form a unique and logically correct and applicable phrase — a circlular poem

…quick

the simplicity of the poem, mirroring the simplicity of the website, typically a quick quote or picture, nothing long…. simply circular

Google, Verizon, FCC: Epic Neutrality

what !

the future holds for net neutrality is uncertain, at best, determined to fail at worst — spurred by the controversially weak fcc, the google-verizon talks

the !

horizon, metaphor for the future, and equal opportunity arbiter, maintaining an unbiased place, with neither land nor sky, up nor down, large nor small corporations to overtake quash one another — maintaining a harmony and open neutrality, no favorites, all equally competing in their own way — as may should and hopefully be going forward and forever on the internet

Yahoo: goodb(Y!)e

Woo

whimsical was once at the heart of the innovation of yahoo — the stuff of red plus blue.

Woo

no longer can the stuff be found — with the layoffs of the past — most likely coming back around.

WikiLeaks: Made Blush

the

online website dedicated to revealing and shedding light on secrets recently created a lot of controversy with the release of a mass of documents about the Afgan war. this is a website truly changing the way news is revealed and disseminated

big

are the ‘secrets’ once concealed. ‘asleep’ those secrets and those who were oblivious to them. nothing secret that people must know should be considered to remain in ‘anonymity’ with these websites in existence

and

through the way they are now being ‘micro’ funded, by way of other online service, digg-like money generating flattr, they may prove to be unstoppable and doubly revolutionizing — flattering — blush 😉

Today’s Web Laureate Classic Insight into Saturday’s poem…

Scoble: Action Aggregate

point

the structure of the poem with ever decreasing number of syllables per line until it reaches 0 — representing, in abstract, the concept of data aggregation leading towards a smiley happiness

light

an important event this work explored — highlighting the disempowerment of users online through the lack of control being enforced over the users, exemplified by the then and continuing lack of portability of content and personal information from the likes of facebook to elsewhere
