The Nightmare Videos Of Children’s YouTube — And What’s Wrong With The Internet Today

ScienceSwitch

In a dark, strange corner of the internet, an unknown group of people on YouTube is wilfully hacking young brains in return for advertising revenue. In this TED Talk, writer and artist James Bridle uncovers truth about pointless, mind-numbing videos such as “surprise egg” reveals and the “Finger Family Song” and those algorithmically created mashups of familiar cartoon characters in violent situations.

“We need to stop thinking about technology as a solution to all of our problems, but think of it as a guide to what those problems actually are, so we can start thinking about them properly and start to address them.”

THIS IS COOL. I WANT TO LEARN SOMETHING ELSE, TOO!

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
