:I was thinking to skip this because it’s not in use in Macedonia, but I stop for a moment and I said to myself: I love piracy, mostly all of d music, videos, films etc I get second hand, nobody pay for that even if someone give some money he decide by free will to uploaded for free use. crazy when u open ur regular accounts on facebook, twitter and u finds links like this, for me was pretty shocking. I couldn’t even imagine, like some bad episode from south park maybe. I RT but it was only beginning of d day, it was/ is REAL!

So why Wikipedia protest today? they protest against d U.S. Congress that is considering legislation that could fatally damage d free and open Internet! .d government made a very good strategy that works behind d back of d freedom of speech, journalism, sharing, d whole system that we learn till today it will be change and in d eyes of d world it’s just a small change of d privacy police and d piracy. It’s not so simple as they present, after this two SOPA и PIPA become one nothing will be d same, there will be more censorship, a lot of web pages will be destroyed, closed .. even d book that are written till now will need to be changed.

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is a bill introduced into the House of Representatives in October to give law enforcement and copyright holders additional tools to prevent copyright infringement, backing off another bill, PIPA, both seeking to protect corporations from the theft of imaginary property.

Very often we see in Macedonia this video is not available in your country, I can’t imagine if after America (US) this is spread all around d world and most of d net content is protected/ censored or not allowed for regular use.

I’m annoyed when I see once per month this situation with youtube but this will make global network silence, we definitely need to unite against this. this is not what we expect and we are not criminals on Internet, we use it as regular citizens. if u think there are bad people develop better system for control and mapping..

.

..there are thousands and thousands of places where u can read stories about but first watch d video, then sign d petition here & here (it’s up to u where u want), then read few more stuff it’s about Us, about free mankind that knows how to act online. OccupyWallStreet Is on strike to protest SOPA, d BBC view points and d open letter to Washington from Artists and Creators!

:don’t hesitate urself to inform ur friends and share this post with them, if not this post maybe d direct link for d petition. we are stronger if we are more, we need to keep of freedom, if we make capitalism from d free net a lot of Us will fail. and it’s not about d failure it’s about d space of development, if we change d direction now we are again on d beginning, and believe me that’s NOT so good!

.drivin’ d new [for me] :fb #timeline_

Leave a comment

I definitely want to write few words for d new [for me] timeline on facebook. I just update my profile and pretty much like d concept & d look. Interesting design indeed, I get confused for some elements, like double message button [success, One from now] etc..

.

.

d first status update that I wrote goes like this:

:

“:actually, I like d fb #timeline_ [first status]. ..even that it looks d same [maybe needs that ‘edit post’ ]: when u want to correct something” :) 

So, I have two parts of my post till now and two things that fb still need to fix. There are many more if we look closer into this platform, but we’ll speak about that some other time. I actually start writing this post cause I wanted to mention that I haven’t wrote till now any post about facebook [or maybe one, two in this 10 years experience in blogging] that this platform is dealing very good till now. Nothing can be perfect, very rare excellent but this fb team is doin their development right as it should. The process of evolving, and adapting every time on different public needs can be difficult. Kudos for their work, for d implementation of their strategy, and just small call for correction in some special aspects as: communication with d global virtual community, understanding their need more, listening what they can offer et c’set tout!

.

:It’s a way to new experience; I have always say that the people don’t need to ignore d way to develop some new technical skills and speak loudly about d negative aspects but as well for d good one. Great that they made it “public” and now everyone can use it ;)

.

:RedWriteWeb today writes smt ..
[I didn't know this I just check whats new on d topic] :)

Facebook’s new Timeline is rolling out to the public, offering users the chance to upgrade to “a new kind of profile.” The new profile was revealed at Facebook’s f8 developer conference on September 22. The rollout began in New Zealand on December 6, and it’s now spreading worldwide.

:do u use #timeline, what do u think about? Do you know smt about d better use of this change, about this or something else:::You can leave ur comments below, subscribe on facebook  or on :d white b[l]og ::: #facebook page

III International Communication Conference

Leave a comment

Glocal: Inside Social Media

Glocal-Social-150x150

Technology has reached a point where almost everyone has a voice. The voice articulated through social media, has already proven to be extremely powerful and able to change the behaviour of individuals, governments, companies and communities.  This are part of the welcome words on LinkedIn Events that Glocal share with all researchers and industry practitioners interested in creating and analyzing social media for a continuous discussion.

Glocalisation (or glocalisation) is a portmanteau of globalization and localization. By definition, the term “glocal” refers to the individual, group, division, unit, organisation, and community which is willing and is able to “think globally and act locally.” The term has been used to show the human capacity to bridge scales (from local to global) and to help overcome meso-scale, bounded, “little-box” thinking. This is the meaning that is explained in  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Today,  October 15, 2009 @ New York University, Skopje Macedonia start the III International Communication Conference called Glocal:  Inside Social Media. There will be three days program and the main topic of this year conference is “How the social networks impact on the different levels of social leaving”.

The program of this year is fulfilled with around thirty  (30) presentation and speakers such as Kevin Robins, Nada Švob-Đokić, Niels Hendrix, Oliver T. Hellriegel, Ivaylo Ditchev, and Paul Bradshaw.

After the official oppening Prof. Dr. Kevin Robins, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK will speak for the topic “Things I Stumbled Upon”. There will be sessions like Relationships between Social Media and Mainstream Media, Learning Practices and Ethnographic Studies of Social Media, Transforming Cultural Industries, Network Cultures, Changing Trends in Journalism: Social Media Impact, Social Media in Working Environment and Growing Business on Top of Social Media and Shapeshifting identities.

Except this in the program there are presentations on subjects that are important for the social networking that everyone of us try to build. Presentations for changes in the Media Landscape and the Resulting Influences on Society and Consumer Behavior, NGO and Social Media in Reaching Hidden Population, Sharing Intellectual Property: Books on the Internet as opposed to Books in Hardcopy, How Modern Technology Shapeshifts our Identities are only part of that what will be shared like information and knowledge with the people who will took part of this conference. There are 30 presenters who will present their way of understanding social mediums and the influence that we get from the networks that we are part of.  The program of this year conference will cover subjects from the new mediums, business, communication, marketing, culture etc.

The official language is English and all who want to participate there is no entrance fee. The program will start at 08:00 this morning (Thursday) and will finish in Saturday, 17 October. More for the main speakers you can find here, or if you want to download the program – here.
