2008 summer updates : "2008" pages [ filmplus.org/rat/2008

... ten years ago I thought that this "web thing" will take me a month to fix, or two, maybe.
... many years ago I made a page "webthought" and it's time to stop. If Media is a message, no message is needed. Web is Zero content? A paradox?
Many corners of "my web" like my.telegraph.co.uk/anatolant [politics/write] : comments, notes, links. I am using several social web "spaces" [including myspace.com]. Must define them by "interests" -- film [apparatus to film in anatoly.edu or/and research?], theatre -- ...
... world without borders, without governments.

NEW (web) LIFE of my nonfiction!
... what's ahead?
web.filmplus.org [ directory ] as business.
... bloglines.com/blog/anatolant -- still do not know how to use my blogs!
groups.diigo.com/groups/webwriter : WebWriter? Webwrighting? WEBRIGHT ? RITER
... webmaster -- I still do not understand it.
Too late to understand. Too late for changes. Too late to have another take, another generation of my pages.
All what I left with is USING my webpages -- for writing.
As it was intended.
Some areas will stay the same. [I avoiding to think about ten years ahead].
What are the zones to watch?
My last name(s).

Is Google Making Us Stupid?
I must re-read it!
I use to read Carr's blog...
It is clear that users are not reading online in the traditional sense; indeed there are signs that new forms of “reading” are emerging as users “power browse” horizontally through titles, contents pages and abstracts going for quick wins. It almost seems that they go online to avoid reading in the traditional sense.
He quotes, and comments on his writing, using DIIGO...
“I can’t read War and Peace anymore,” he admitted. “I’ve lost the ability to do that. Even a blog post of more than three or four paragraphs is too much to absorb. I skim it.”
... Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain... “We are how we read.”
"When the Net absorbs a medium, that medium is re-created in the Net’s image. It injects the medium’s content with hyperlinks, blinking ads, and other digital gewgaws, and it surrounds the content with the content of all the other media it has absorbed. A new e-mail message, for instance, may announce its arrival as we’re glancing over the latest headlines at a newspaper’s site. The result is to scatter our attention and diffuse our concentration.
The Net’s influence doesn’t end at the edges of a computer screen, either. As people’s minds become attuned to the crazy quilt of Internet media, traditional media have to adapt to the audience’s new expectations. Television programs add text crawls and pop-up ads, and magazines and newspapers shorten their articles, introduce capsule summaries, and crowd their pages with easy-to-browse info-snippets. When, in March of this year, TheNew York Times decided to devote the second and third pages of every edition to article abstracts , its design director, Tom Bodkin, explained that the “shortcuts” would give harried readers a quick “taste” of the day’s news, sparing them the “less efficient” method of actually turning the pages and reading the articles. Old media have little choice but to play by the new-media rules.
Never has a communications system played so many roles in our lives—or exerted such broad influence over our thoughts—as the Internet does today. Yet, for all that’s been written about the Net, there’s been little consideration of how, exactly, it’s reprogramming us. The Net’s intellectual ethic remains obscure. (*)"

Nick Carr, again! [see right table] Well, Nick, Now we know how this "Big Idiot" thinks!

webthought [my first "about web" page].
... "web" pages are in every sub-directory!
My web-year (2007) is over.
... 2008 will be over.
... unexpectected stop [here] from web.vtheatre.net2007:
And I will repeat the TEXT at the top:
First --- from fool.vtheatre.net/2007 :
"Year Pages & Rashamon : "2007" in each directory is another [new] version of the SAME year. There is no SAME, not even a moment, as long as it human "read"! I try to tell the stories of year 007. That's the year when I decided to change your life again. The end of teaching... and what does it mean."
I place this thought (word for word) in a different context -- and I have a different content. [ Montage Principle ]

3 LIVES? 2007... 007 ... 07
4th LIVE -- 7-web
My preparation for stories of "2008s" -- every word has had changed? without changes...
1. Change because of repetition.
2. Position on the page.
3. Because of font [helvetica] -- different bgcolor?
4. Because you've changed.
