reconstructing semiotic warfare: making media is a political act. poetry is a virus...Edit
frequent australian Indymedia hack and a volunteer editor/admin. on Wikinews i attempt to research and publish at least one story per day - dependent upon time restraints and distractions.
i also present and produce a weekly independent non-corporate news and information program on local community public radio in perth, wa - i report various local perth, western australia, national, oceania. i cover global grass-roots participatory events, news items and actions.
the wikinews australian portal is my homepage.
today my focus is on deep respect for the biosphere, social justice, guerilla art, grass-roots participation, consensus and other shit.
i am 39yo.
i like no borders.
i am potentially anarchista.
i respect the Nyungar/Noongar land.
See this: i live in this country
i am currently studying web administration at TAFE.
i don't own or drive a car.
reasons to become the media, not hate it, like:
- Corporate-owned media is an inherent greed-seeded hyperbole machine.
- Language and meme control commodified, homogenised and monopolised. exemplified by crap like this:
"Copyright. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed."
- The glaring reality of corporate mindshare, the insideous mental real estate boom.
- Globalised Monocultural Dominant Cultural meanings. Deny.
- Mindless capitalistic control of language and culture. Resist.
- Memes designed to never satisfy desire. Repeat Consumption. Cancer fetish.
- Intellectual Property Rights vs the sexiness of Open source and the freedom of ideas.
- People/country before profit. Many generational decision-making. Consensus.
- Advertising eats my face off in strips of energetic farce. Unwanted eye candy.
- Good men can't sit still in dark rooms. Not knowingly.
- Anyone is a journalist. innit. even you.
- Open Source art and science is my godhead
