#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC JOURNALISM/ Journalism, the business or practice of writing and producing a newspaper or periodical (journal), is a descendent of diurnal , from Middle English, meaning "of or pertaining to the daytime" or "occurring every day".
#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC JOURNALISM/ "of or pertaining to the daytime" "occurring every day" [Daylight is good for phonecams] http://youtu.be/3nI02Z8B1dw http://youtu.be/0x2mdGimsDo

#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC NETWORKS/ MICHEL BAUWENS “ WE REGARD WHAT IS TRULY PLENTIFUL AS SCARCE AND WE REGARD WHAT IS TRULY SCARCE AS PLENTIFUL” NATURAL, MATERIAL RESOURCES INFORMATION, KNOWLEDGE, COMMUNICATION WHAT WOULD JOURNALISM IN A LOW-CARBON ERA BE?
#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC ONTOLOGY/ ONTOLOGY (information science) An ontology provides a shared vocabulary, which can be used to model a domain that is, the type of objects and/or concepts that exist, and their properties and relations http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontology_(information_science) ONTOLOGY (philosophy): Ontology deals with questions concerning what entities exist or can be said to exist, and how such entities can be grouped, related within a hierarchy, and subdivided according to similarities and differences. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontology HOW DOES SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE NET CHALLENGE WHAT JOURNALISM TAKES TO BE REALITY?
#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC ONTOLOGY/ M.CASTELLS: SOCIAL MEDIA PROVIDES “ MASS SELF-COMMUNICATION” http://www.uoc.edu/portal/english/sala-de-premsa/actualitat/entrevistes/2011/manuel_castells.html “ The internet is the space of power and happiness, of peace and war. It's the social space of our world, a hybrid space built on the interface between direct experience, and experience mediated by communication - and above all, by internet communication.”
#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC ONTOLOGY/ http://bit.ly/zunguzungu “ Assange is not trying to produce a journalistic scandal which will then provoke red-faced government reforms or something, precisely because no one is all that scandalized by such things any more. Instead, he is trying to strangle the links that make the conspiracy possible, to expose the necessary porousness of the American state's conspiratorial network - hoping that the security state will then try to shrink its computational network in response, thereby making itself dumber and slower and smaller” ASSANGE & WIKILEAKS ARE NOT “MUCK-RAKERS”... THEY WANT THE HOUSE TO BE PERMANENTLY CLEAN – HE'S A HACKER/ANARCHIST (SO WHAT POLITICS DO MOST JOURNALISTS HAVE, THEN?)
#MEDIA140CAT @THEPLAYETHIC ONTOLOGY/ SO IF JOURNALISM IS ABOUT “WHAT HAPPENS IN THE DAYLIGHT”, IT'S NOT MARGINAL (TO ENTERTAINMENT, GAMES, ETC) BUT CENTRAL TO INFORMATION SOCIETY BUT IT BECOMES A GENERAL FUNCTION OF DYNAMIC, ENGAGED CITIZENSHIP.... RATHER THAN A JOB PAID FOR BY CLASSIFIED ADS, & ABOUT RECYCLING PRESS RELEASES (IE, NICK DAVIES' “ CHURNALISM ”)
