Yeah.  I'm assuming "tech consumption" includes just being on a PC or other tech, which accounts for a lot of jobs obviously.
I queef, therefore I am.

Yeah... not sure why computer wasn't there.  I do all of them except for the bottom row... and I have satellite radio and podcasts.

Good and fairly recent conversation about social media and new media.  They echo things I have been thinking about the arrival of radio, TV and Cable and how they arrived into our living rooms.

Don't forget the marine world of GPS, radios, plotters, radars, satellite phones...much if not all can or is integrated thru a computer.

I recall a boat I worked on early in my career when electronics were still dominated by technology using vacuum tubes - really old school stuff. The direction finder used so much power the skipper would have to turn virtually everything else off lest he drain the battery. We'd use the Big Phone to pick up radio broadcasts from all over North America and the Pacific.  Wheelhouses became roomier places with transistors and smaller more compact electronics.

1. Hmmm... Most of what you posted is on computer but ok.  I'm reminded of my old uncle a HAM operator who in the era of the internet was concerned about amateur radio operators using MORSE CODE to send curse words... because children might intercept the messages 🤔

2. The thing about media progress is that something is always left behind and something is rediscovered - this is McLuhan's wisdom, the tetrad of media laws.  Those old tubes used to be able to get signals from the Gulf of Mexico into Toronto.  In the 1950s the cars would all park together and the teens would listen to Detroit radio... 

Other example - when TV arrived they showed old movies - which had almost been forgotten because the movie theatres wouldn't bother showing them anymore.  Well the films hung around so movies people thought were gone forever were back on.

When major media shifts happen, in terms of channels of delivery, it unleashes nascent and latent emotions (like anger) that were always there but were controlled by the dominant media.  Social Media allows people to beam their anger out to the world and a seismic shift happens.

So - Charlottesville, BLM, LGBTQ, Arab Spring, Saudi Reforms... are all happening over the same media landscape.

If you want a model - look to Martin Luther who used the "new" media of the printing press to challenge the Catholic Church and unleash nascent anger and resentment over their corruption. 

And radio, telegraph, television, Cable all had different versions of this when they showed up.  I suggest you read the short and artful "The Medium is the Massage" by Marshall McLuhan and Quentin Fiore.  It's a good explanation for the higher forces at work/play

I saw Rex Murphy was trending and it's because of another dumbass column and not because he's dead, what a letdown.

Rebel News tried to get on the government to qualify it as a "Canadian journalism organization" so it could give subscribers a digital news subscription tax credit but their bid was rejected because they don't produce enough original Canadian content and what they do produce is too one-sided to be considered journalism. Naturally they are grifting off this already, claiming Trudeau revoked their broadcast license (lol).

quite unsurprisingly in another thread, member Retro parroted the Rebel News take:

A secret board of Trudeau government advisors has terminated Rebel News’ licence renewal.  Nothing says freedom more than the government in power deciding who can be a journalist and who can’t! 😂🤣 Freedom!!!!

of course there is no such thing as a federal "Journalism License"! As for the claimed, "secret board" terminating Rebel News license renewal, the board in question is the, "Independent Advisory Board on eligibility for journalism tax measures"; with mandate & members detailed below:



it was this Independent Advisory Board that ruled Rebel News didn't produce enough "original content" to qualify as a "Canadian journalism organization" in order to be allowed to provide subscribers a digital news subscription tax credit. Of course Rebel News is a tad upset that they don't qualify as a legitimate news organization and, accordingly, can't issue donation receipts in the same way charities can, making donations to Rebel News not tax deductible.

Begging for government scraps... when they get a no, they frame it as oppression and fundraise on it.

OAN (One America News) needs a whiteKnight... hey now Retro, get after your boy Elon, hey!



DirecTV — by far OAN’s largest carrier accounts for about 90% of OAN’s revenue. DirecTV dropped OAN today {April 5th}, rejecting GOP pleas to keep right-wing network
