I was exploring the internets today, specifically this bit. I remember seeing the tweets and the artcles on waxy and kottke but hey, the more information on an interesting topic the merrier. Then I inadvertently saw some comments on one of the blog posts. Was the bar for internet comments raised while I’ve been away at school or have I just been spending too much time on Youtube. I can’t pull up any specific comments as examples right now but I’ll say that I was impressed.
Gets me thinking about such things as social media and reaching the intended audience. How much individual personality needs to go into the writting to establish an image as a blogger? Can a person really create the same audience on Twitter? How would lowering the intended reading age of a news publication effect its audience? Would the spawn of /b/ and Youtube become a productive member of society?
Now my brain has gone off on so many tangents that I may never collect my thoughts in time to write my finals. Wish me luck.
I was aware of the Shazam-like app called Midomi but I was not aware that there was a website.
Of course I’ll use Shazam for on the fly identification of music but I usually want a bit more than that. Like covers or a similar sound. I haven’t fully explored the website yet but it appears to have everything I want. In fact I did hit the Explore button and was side-tracked listening to user recordings in Bengali.
