Watch out, Beadle’s about 

I’ve had someone mention that I got some in the Herald on Sunday a few weeks back. So, will I respond, despite not having seen the article? Well, I already have—Lucire (the “master” edition), issue 23, p. 127.
   Hang on, didn’t that run in early May—which would have meant you wrote it in March?
   Well, yes.
   Call it an experiment that worked far too well, thanks to and willing , all of whom have now provided very useful proof of a theory that’ll fit very well with upcoming addresses on and 21st century . I instinctively thought I could bait someone in old media into publishing news on trivia—I didn’t know just how difficult or easy it would be.
   For those undergrads who attended my second AUT lecture in late March where this type of incident was discussed soon after I wrote my column, you’ll see the connection, though there won’t be a follow-up lecture this July due to the winter break (there may be one in August, to be confirmed). Rather than repeat a one-hour lecture here in case some of you are reading, I’ll quickly note that it also has consequences for the service above all others—the genius there is not so much that it exists, but it has become synonymous with an audience that wishes to have, or has, a media presence. Already the are being compartmentalized by —so which one is compatible with your ?
   I’m going to have to bite my tongue when it comes to criticizing American , when our gossip media, failing to apply due diligence, were so easily baited. But it does make the future lectures easier.
   In any case, it is an indication that the theories behind new media, individual empowerment and the being more representative of everyday life as democratizes hold water—topics touched on frequently here this year.
   It also highlights that in the age of the “commodification” (or commoditization) of media, the need to maintain high standards remains paramount—and that this is where the press will retain their support. Thus, using a rather different example than the first time this blog got some press—my viewpoints on the Jyllands-Posten Mohammed cartoons in The Guardian—we come full circle to a post written in January 2006. And how, in the age of citizen media, we have not learned too much.

Jack very good article, as usual. I think it depends on the business you run or your current interests. If you are a recording artist, myspace is a viable solution, but if you are trying to make a name for your consulting business, then you might just stick with your own Personal Branding website.  
Thanks, Dan. I guess why Myspace is appealing is the social aspect, which regular Joe Bloggs like me don’t have on our sites. But then, Facebook and others seem to be good private alternatives.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
