Govt. violates privacy safeguards to secretly monitor Internet traffic

Govt. violates privacy safeguards to secretly monitor Internet traffic | Online Journalism in India | Scoop.it
"Keyword-based monitoring can snoop in on emails, web-browsing, chat." From this report it is obvious that the government can and is snooping. The reactions to such reports are really surprising. There is a general disinterest; haven't heard of an outrage our uproar that such news should trigger. Instead we see some people even offering justifications, which is strange in the times that we live in. The very same government that is being pilloried day in and day out is being offered support. Of course, this isn't unique to India. Ed Snowden's revelations have not resulted in any widespread movement against the government in the U.S. either, although there is certainly more outrage.

Hegemony in Contemporary Culture and Media and the Need for a Counter Initiative

Gramscian hegemony, more than overt imperialism, characterises contemporary mass culture and media. A paradigm shift in the way we understand, represent and experience the world subserves a new and aggressive corporate teleology. Technological convergence and digitisation, which held an initial promise of and potential for democratisation, collapse into vertical integration and monopolisation. In the process, cultural sovereignty is abstracted into a homogenised, make-believe, global marketplace, which reduces every individual to a consumer and excludes the real and abiding concerns of vast swathes of humanity. An intellectual resurgence must counter the counterfeit revolution of the information era.

The 2012 media watchlist

The 2012 media watchlist | Online Journalism in India | Scoop.it

The Guardian's list places Paid-for news at #1. So let's all be prepared to shell out next year? The The Web App Movement comes in second, which is debatable. We will have to see how these silos transform to gateways, at least. They've got The Apple's Newsstand at #3. I haven't got much to say on that. The switch to Digital Editions, as opposed to dumb PDF takes the 4th spot. I'd put this more in my wishlist than a watchlist. But the one to watch surely is The Huffington Post.
