...to 3D printing of construction and health materials, to sentiment tracking technology that enables brands to adjust their marketing messages in real-time based on unfolding events, the business world is changing at a rapid pace.

Unblocked Games Online

However, there are clever methods that you can implement to unblock your favorite game sites both on game sites and on Facebook to make them accessible. The sad truth about this is, at times they will not last long or they can take up a lot of time. Plus, it’s never pleasant when someone finds out and reports you!

Why does google insist on punching bloggers in the face?

By thebritishmenu, published on Aug 26, 2013

...my thoughts and recipes onto a computer screen in the hope that few or many will read them. Also like many I have this un realistic idea that I should be able to do just that without any form of punishment, I mean it's not like I'm doing anything wrong is it?

So why then does the giant internet eating machine that is google want to penalize the hard working blogger for no apparent reason, and if there is a reason then why not use the novel and new invention of communication, something which normally begins with opening the mouth and exhaling breath over the larynx to form words, or... (more)

5 Reasons why social media are increasing intelligence

By darinlhammond, published on Oct 17, 2012

Although the question of whether the internet affects our brains did not originate with Nicholas Carr, his July 2008 article in The Atlantic Monthly titled "Is Google Making Us Stupid?"certainly brought the issue into the mainstream media. He contends that Internet use in general, not just Google, changes the brain. The statement is obvious, as all things we experience, especially those over an extended period of time, change or brains, neural pathways, and cognition. However, what agitated people was his assertion that extensive use of the web makes us think in a less complex, in-depth manner.Carr... (more)

Trolling And Why Its So Popular

By XX_BenDover_63XX, published on May 21, 2012

I am a regular internet forum user and i can honestly say trolling has become a major problem. Many people no longer use sites such as Yahoo Answers and some forums due to the unwanted responses from so called "trolls". I myself do not know why such silly idiotic pastimes are seen as funny. It just comes from people without a sense of humor or any intelligence. Though trolling is an immature pointless activity it is becoming increasingly popular and is further developing into greater and more sophisticated forms. Trolling is destructive and degrading to the creative and intellectual thought... (more)

The Death Of A Home On The Internet

By terrybubble, published on Feb 22, 2012

Sadly, I do not think that my words can do this story justice, only if you were there in the early days, could you really understand what I am trying to say.

Towards the end of February 2008 a new website was born, it was founded by internet entrepreneur and founder of MySpace, Brad Greenspan. Within a few short months, it became major competition to well known video sharing website YouTube. The name of this site was LiveVideo.

Many YouTube users soon migrated over to this new home on the internet, with the promise of better quality sound and video, but, most importantly,... (more)

CYBERPOLIS

By Uttam Gill, published on Nov 24, 2011

I invite each one of you to undertake journey into the dream World of “Cyberpolis”. I know that you never heard of this word before. You must be wondering about “Cyberpolis”? I was equally wondering when this word I instinctively coined after experiencing the metrics of Cyber world. I understood the prominence of cyber world and its existence. I am treading into the unconventional domain of thinking and perhaps it would appeal your mind too. I wonder at the emerging polis and foresee the radical shift in evolution of our collective thinking. How this is going to transform and what shape it... (more)

I Don’t Get it. No, Wait, I do. Wait, No, No, I Really Don’t

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on Nov 21, 2011

Right here at the outset I will admit to no longer being “young.” And clearly, not “with it,” as in, I “don’t get it.” Except, I actually do “get it.” I just don’t like “it.” Now, I know there are many who seem to hold to the idea that if one “gets it,” then one must a priori like “it” as well. Sorry, but I don’t buy into that solipsistic cul-de-sac. I “get” that “the people” are fed up with the existing political process. It is quite clearly broken and in shambles. And I “get” that for many this means they have free reign to rail without cease or moral backbones at whatever their fear of the... (more)

Don’t Let Quirky Profiles Brew At Broowaha

By Barkha Dhar, published on Aug 11, 2011

...further assured me of her phony and fabricated persona.

If Madam Caio was serious and genuine about commenting on my post, she could have made an authentic profile at Broowaha and shared her views as a sensible and intellectual person even if she had a different view on the subject of internet censorship. Madam Caio could have raised a specific and logical argument as to why she thinks internet censorship could be so harmful for social ethics and freedom of expression. Instead she raised a dumb perspective confirming her cold-blooded character, immaturity and a petty mindset.... (more)
