Day in the Life of Carson

 

 

I had to do this for my “online publishing” class, and I ended up enjoying it.  I hadn’t made a movie for a while, probably not since freshman year.  It is always fun to do any sort of music video, I used to do these all the time back in the day.  I wish I had better equipement to produce this, I actually used my cell phone for 90% of the pictures and video.  It would have been nice to have a real camera or a video recorder, but I made do with what I had.

After reading the article on using one’s real name on blogs, I was struck by the fact that a lot of people are all for using your real name.  I disagree with this personally.  While I feel that there definitely is a sense of liability when you use your real name when posting on a blog, I really don’t think it is necessary to require people to use their real name.  The whole point of the internet is that it is impersonal and you don’t necessarily have to feel responsible for what you say.  Because it’s the internet and it really doesn’t matter.  It reminds me of a joke I heard once, that arguing on the internet is like competeing in the special olympics, even if you win you’re still retarded.  Even if you do give your real name, the chances of someone finding you irl is so low, that you still can say anything.  I recently read an article on philebrity.com about a guy who lost his job because of a comment he made on a blog about the newspaper he interned at.  Seems to me that if he hadn’t used his real name, it would have turned out much differently.
