Why we no longer trust our government

Imagine going through the days of your life knowing that a pair of eyes are watching your every move, daring you to, and daring you not to. Even if you were to attempt to escape its gaze, the mere shadow of it still manages to burn to the core of your existence?

What does the future hold for games journalism?

The reported imminent closure of Future publishing’s British-based games website CVG looming makes you wonder what the future holds for games journalism. Why?

The Five Eyes are watching you!

Every time I use the internet, I sit there paranoid thinking...they could be watching me; the five eyes are watching me! Scary thoughts ran through my mind after attending a seminar at my university (Rhodes University) about Cyber Security and Digital Surveillance by guest lecturer Mindy McAdams. I kept questioning how ‘safe’ I am on the internet. Apparently those of us who care are a minority.

Our kids will be digital

With all of the social networking sites (SNS) today, a lot of what we do is transferred from analogue to digital. I worry for my children; I want them to experience a bit of analogue before being sent into the unforgiving culture of digital.

Social networking sites (SNS) have increased in numbers by large amounts over the past few years. We now have Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Bebo, MySpace, Friendster, Orkut, Netlog, Buzznet, Blogster and that doesn’t even cover the tip of the iceberg. This doesn’t even include networking sites created for more local purposes such as Rhodes University’s RUconnected or  Ratchat created by anonymous Rhodes students.
