The Root Of The Problem

Is now that I have a lot of things to say, but so little time to say it.

I should really get back to typing up blog notes. They were great for my memory.

A lot of great ideas but no time to actually develop them or write about them.

So here we are, yet again.

Technical Illiteracy

Sorry about that! Have just been mindlessly procrastinating when I realised I should be posting on here!

Haha it’s a terrible habit to break but I have a number of competing addictions running at the moment.

I’ll do my best to make a change here for the benefit of the blog.

But that’s all for now. This is just a reminder.

This Little Corner Of The Internet

Belongs to us. Don’t you forget that.

I almost forgot to post today but I’m not gonna let that happen again.

Isn’t it weird how the audience has fragmented?

Communications theory is very big into centralisation/convergence of technology and larger participation as developing nations are able to access technology for cheaper.

However content creation and competition has completely decimated the audience. While in the 90s we had tv with 7 or so channels so market share was enormously concentrated. Now we have digital channels, streaming content and so on. The same is true for music and film. There is just so much content out there and different ways of accessing that information.

As a result we will never see the large audience shares that were once experienced. What does this mean for profits and content sustainability in the long term? It’s interesting to think about.

We will keep fragmenting the audience and diluting content. Will we ever reach consensus again? What will water cooler conversation revolve around when we all have different viewing or consumption habits?

I guess in the end all you can do is create content for your little audience and hope they enjoy it enough to sustain you and you can grow modestly from that.

The past is gone.

We fracture in the middle.

Nobody Has The Answers

Nobody ever did.

More to come I hope.

This is hopefully not just a temporary return.

This all use to mean something.

Who are all of you?

Who am I?

You already know.

You Can Kill A Phoenix

Or can you? I don’t know. Wow, what a terrible period. Not a single post over an entire year and a bit! What has become of us? I don’t know.

Time: it has a way of getting one over all of us eventually. Maybe things are happening and I will finally have some time to be more productive on the things I actually want to do.

Anyway, there’s a lot that has been on my mind. Just not a way to say it.

But I am here. 

Maybe you are too.

The inescapable truth

Oh my god. It was all so inevitable. It's all failing me. And it was always due. I'm barely into it but I'm already feeling the effects. This is not real life. This is somewhere else entirely. Lost. Losing. Gone. My 30s are killing me. Life is the death sentence. Ouch.
