The Internet and Creativity

Piracy watchdog Nexicon has found the ultimate way to turn piracy into profit for the fresh copyright holders added to their clientele. They offer alleged file-sharers the chance to settle for $10 per downloaded song or an equal amount for a pirated movie. If you decide not to settle, they promise to bankrupt you in court. Some people might remember Nexicon from the Getamnesty site we mentioned in the past, or perhaps as the Youtube copyright cops. The company has a history as a cigarette retailer but went on to hunt pirates after they were sued for selling smokes to minors and failing to report their sales to the tax office. ...
", and many others. The site's random board is by far its most popular and notorious feature. Known as "/b/", there are very minimal rules on posted content. Gawker.com once claimed in jest that "reading /b/ will melt your brain". 1 The site's Anonymous community and culture have often provoked media attention. For planners , this enterprise is "further proof that creativity is everywhere and new media is less accessible" to advertisement agencies . Journalists looked at how an Internet destination was hijacked for a prank, so that images of Rick Astley appeared instead of the page ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Art=Work | Pricing Prestidigitation
How much should a website cost? Any given web professional can produce an array of pricing models based on the complexity of a project. The amount of time estimated, multiplied by the hourly rates of those involved would probably be the most common approach, and for good reason. Costs should be a trade on efforts, and thus an hourly rate, based upon the quantifiable measurement of the professional’s abilities is the most rational approach. Basic economics dictate this outcome: in a free market, clients will pay what they believe the efforts to be worth. Those web professionals that overestimate the value of their efforts should ... market research, surveys and trends
The Cost of Creativity – Creating Your Own Online Store ...
A very common question I receive is about the amount to charge for crafting goods. I specialize in teaching Crochet & Loom Knitting. New enthusiastic people come on board and learn with my “How To” tutorials and then get all rev’d up on the excitment. While sitting there, they get thinking big about creating their own home based businesses. They see people selling stuff all over the internet and then they start seeing themselves as a business owner and marketing their goods. Realistically, what something is worth is up to the person who wants it. If you are creating something that can be found all over the ... market research, surveys and trends

GENERATION C | An emerging consumer trend and related new business ...
phenomenon captures the an avalanche of consumer generated 'content' that is building on the Web, adding tera-peta bytes of new text, images, audio and video on an ongoing basis. The two main drivers fuelling this trend? (1) The creative urges each consumer undeniably possesses. We're all artists, but until now we neither had the guts nor the means to go all out. (2) The manufacturers of content-creating tools, who relentlessly push us to unleash that creativity, using -- of course -- their ever cheaper, ever more powerful gadgets and gizmos. Instead of asking consumers to watch, to listen, to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Children on the Internet
The Internet today is a part of kids' natural environment. Most children have access to the Internet at school and/or at home.

When I was looking for a job after college, I bought the Sunday New York Times and scanned the classifieds, circling promising descriptions with a red pen. I mailed in my resume and waited for a call on my landline. That was 11 years ago — the last time I looked for a job without using the Internet. I now have close relations with several devices unimaginable in 1999. I spend a large part of every day at a computer terminal, and I conduct my personal and professional lives with the indispensable aid of new technologies. Am I dumber than I was before I had an iPhone and a 24-hour Internet connection? I don't feel ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Internet, culture and creativity / media studio
There is a very interesting debate taking place on various blogs related to the book by Andrew Keen called “The Cult of the Amateur: How blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and the rest of today’s user-generated media are destroying our economy, our culture and our values.” I first read about it on Ewan McIntosh’s edu-blog and he points us to the excellent review by Dave Weinberger . There are a lot of twists and turns in the arguments that I will not go into and considerable merit in both points of view (for and against). This really is a topic that we need to focus more attention on and explore further. How does ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

I don't think technology is impersonal. Rather, it shows what people are in the dark, IMO. Many people feel safe being jerks or trolls behind the anonymity of the internet, or breaking up over a text, for example. That proves something about them, not the technology itself. People will be jerks if they think they can get away with it. As for creativity, have you ever visited deviantart? Or newgrounds? or even fanfiction.net and fictionpress.com if you have enough patience to sort through the crud to find those rare gems.
