In einer Postdemokratie richtet sich die Politik nach der Berichterstattung. Um Politik zu gestalten kann man also zuerst Nachrichten machen. Das politische System reagiert dann darauf.

Soup.io will be discontinued :(

Dear soup.io fans and users,
today, we have to share very sad news. Soup.io will stop working in less than 10 days. :(
It's breaking our heart and we honestly tried whatever we could to keep the platform up and running. But the high costs and low revenue streams made it impossible to continue with it. We invested a lot of personal time and money to operate the platform, but when it's over, it's over.
We are really sorry. Soup.io is part of the internet history and online for one and a half decades.
Here are the hard facts:
- In 10 days the platform will stop working.
- Backup your data in this time
- We will not keep backups nor can we recover your data
July, 20th, 2020 is the due date.
Please, share your thoughts and feelings here.
Your Soup.io TEAM

Wir leben mit einer Medienöffentlichkeit, der Sachfragen zu 80 Prozent schnurzegal sind (ja, in der Politk detto!) und die primär daran interessiert ist, ob es irgendwo einen Fauxpas, einen Kelch, einen Skandal oder sonst irgendeine negativ konnotierte News auszugraben gibt, über die man sich trefflich empören kann. ... Erst wenn man sich selbst bei einem Thema zufällig auskennt, erkennt man wie substanzlos viele Artikel sind und wie wenig sie sich von den Plattitüden der Politiker/innen unterscheiden.
Journalismus ist „Part of the Game“ | blog.sektionacht.at 
Yep! Dass es bei(m meisten) Journalismus um irgendeine Form von Wahrheitsfindung oder Aufklärung gehen könnte, diese Illusion hab ich auch ablegen müssen – es geht um die mitreißende Story, und was nicht passt, wird passend gemacht. (Will ja sonst eh auch keine/r lesen.)

Ein Verleger hat einem Politiker von uns eine Seite seines Magazins mit einer Negativgeschichte über unsere Partei gezeigt. Dazu hat er gesagt: „Hier könnte aber auch ein Inserat von euch stehen.“

Concerned Germans protesting Google Street View. By posing in front of their house. For the newspaper. Which has an online version. While giving their full names. Oh my... 
Of course the media is at fault here two times over, not these poor saps who don't know their DNS from their TRALAFITTI – first for whipping up a panic, and then for not telling these folks what they're about to do to them is worse.

[Media gives you] the power to reach beyond yourself, outward in space and forward in time. The power to have conversations—really rich, meaningful conversations—with more people than you could ever break bread with.

Die Jungen [haben] beschlossen, an uns [gemeint wahrscheinlich: am ORF oder dem Fernsehen allgemein] gar nicht mehr teilzunehmen, sondern lieber täglich ins Internet zu kotzen, und das noch anonym, weil da kann relativ wenig passieren und man fühlt sich aber richtig gut, weil man's dem Internet gesagt hat.
Wolfgang Lorenz, Programmdirektor Fernsehen, ORF
Ich kann gar nicht so viel tippen, wie ich kotzen möcht.

as pixelized sediment.
the past collects ever downward,
The future drops in from above;
forms a 'now' horizon.
the 'top' of your window
In this new text world,

screen-based writing.
direction of time-flow in
now to shift the expected
Twitter -- they all work
News websites, blogs, friend feeds,

The future of media? Bet on events « Snarkmarket

I recently had a similar thought: I'll admit to pirating most of the media I consume. I try to give back to recording artists by going to shows and buying merch, but I haven't found a way of doing that for films I love. The logical next thought: Why don't indie movies go on tour? Grab the director, an actor or two, a band from the soundtrack and stuff them in a van for a tour of screenings and parties (and merch sales) beyond just traditional film festivals. No idea whether that scales well enough to work as a business model, but I would love it :)

To find out what terms users are searching for, [Demand Media's algorithm] parses bulk data purchased from search engines, ISPs, and Internet marketing firms. Then the algorithm crunches keyword rates to calculate how much advertisers will pay to appear on pages that include those terms. Third, the formula checks to see how many Web pages already include those terms. Finally, the algorithm, like a drunken prophet, starts spitting out phrase after phrase: “butterfly cake,” “shin splints,” “Harley-Davidson belt buckles.” ... At the end of the process, the company has a topic and a dollar amount — the term’s “lifetime value,” — that Demand expects to generate from any resulting content.

[The value] of every story [is] very, very small. Most media companies are trying hard to increase those numbers, to boost the value of their online content until it matches the amount of money it costs to produce. But [Demand Media] thinks they have it exactly backward. Instead of trying to raise the market value of online content to match the cost of producing it — perhaps an impossible proposition — the secret is to cut costs until they match the market value.

I want to know everybody’s opinion. I want everybody to try and think for themselves and take their own photos and report everything they possibly can, no matter how amateur, no matter how mistaken. ... I want professional journalists to get stuck in the flood of everyday people so that they’re forced to be brilliant just to stand out.

Most meta-level reporting of trends show a world that is getting better. We live longer, in cleaner environments, are healthier, and have access to goods and experiences that kings of old could never have dreamed of. If that doesn't make us happier, we really have no one to blame except ourselves. Oh, and the media lackeys who continue to feed us the litany of woes that we subconsciously crave.
