When I found out Fight for the Future needed help with their campaign against a new bill called PROTECT-IP, I had to take a little time away from Everything is a Remix Part 4 and produce the video above. PROTECT-IP is the latest piece of legislation aiming to chip away at your online rights in the name of protecting the entertainment industry's business model. It's legislation that won't work, will give us yet more lawsuits, and will make the net worse.
Whether you lean right and hate business regulation, lean left and hate censorship, or lean neither way but hate useless legislation, PROTECT-IP is a bill everyone should oppose. I encourage you to head over to Fight For the Future and contact congress.
MEMES: THE STREET ART OF THE INTERNET
Calling internet memes "the street art of the social web", artist, designer and writer An Xiao Mina looks at how internet culture reflects an urban street aesthetic online.
With both online and offline responses to the arrest of Ai Weiwei to environmental disasters in Shanghai's waterways, Chinese citizens have used a wide variety of memes to talk about difficult political issues on one of the world's most censored internet spaces. If the internet and social media are the new city streets, memes act in the same way as street art, providing a dissenting voice through media.
Mina is co-founder of The Civic Beat (thecivicbeat.com), a global research group and consultancy for internet culture and viral phenomena based in Hong Kong, New York and California.
She talked on the 27th of August, 2013 in Oslo at MESH.
