Internet Culture @4-ch

Internet Culture, sub-cultures, the people who use the internet and everything else relating to is up for discussing. Let's try to talk about more than just imageboard websites, as there is more to the internet than just them.
  • Label any links you post as 'NWS' if they are not safe for viewing at work.

Bienvenido a Internet is a website similar to Channel4

If you don't know spanish, you can translate it with Google Translate. Translation's quality is pretty good. Here's the link with translated website:

https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=es&tl=en&js=y&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fbienvenidoainternet.org%2F&edit-text=&act=url

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2017-04-24 17:25 ID:Heaven

There could be problems with translated page due to frames, if the links don't work, just open them in a new tab.

In 2002 Something Awful was the place to be. Next came YTMND, and from 2003-2006 4-chan was the greatest thing ever. So what do you think is next?

It's unlikely, but if 4-ch were to suddenly explode in popularity I wouldn't be too surprised.

Social Network of your choice. (58)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-12 00:16 ID:D9UuLNrz

Which Social Network is, in your opinion, the best one?

I personally like FaceBook.com. It has an exclusive feel to it due to the closed off 'networks', the features are solid and include little bits of ajax everywhere, the administrators seem to care about the site, and then the userbase is fairly large [10+ million?]. Not to mention the Google-like user interface is great.

Also, don't even bother to mention MySpace, please.

i had orkut, though that's kinda dead now I think.
I haven't bothered getting Myspace or Facebook, primarily because myspace is shit and I reckon facebook will just end up being replaced by some new fad site of the month. Facebook also has some pretty sus when it comes to privacy and the collection of personal data.

51 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-24 23:54 ID:aysBbbVQ

I have a Melodramatic, which kinda is the First SN site if you don't consider Livejournal a SN site and instead just a private blog. The people there aren't as fucking gay as in Myspace or whatever, but you'll see many more poets, emos, and gays there. It's a tradeoff, but the level of stupidity on melodramatic.com is much MUCH lower than many other SN sites.

A Japanese acquaintance of mine mentioned there were people at his university who also used 2ch memespeak and standard netspeak IRL - in front of the uninitiated as well. He was disgusted.

I also see no way to win this battle, unless each person opposed makes it their priority to immediately point out how retarded a person sounds anytime they spew their annoyances. Even then, it seems near-impossible as the "persecution" might further embolden them.

Friends don't let friends netspeak IRL.

If they persist, I suppose it's not too harsh to disown them? You'd be doing at least yourself a favor.

Just finished reading The Shallows by Nicholas Carr, and I've become very cynical of what the internet has become and what it is doing to our culture. I've also been thinking a lot about how people used to spread information between computers, using text files that would often be printed out and read away from the computers themselves. It's hard not to think about things like this and not sound like a Luddite, but I guess that's what my growing dislike of the web is going to end up making me in to.

It's intrusion into daily life will only increase as smart phones continue to proliferate among ever younger children, and the idea that the internet is an extension of the real world will be so entrenched in to their minds that it will only get worse when they enter the work force and then politics.

I think like all things in life, moderation is key. Memes are great in that they represent a group-based idea of something that is funny, interesting or literally exists. They can help like-minded people connect. But I think lately the word meme has come to have some of the same properties as the word fuck; It's easily used in many contexts. I think this is dangerous because it can lead people to be lazy in their critical thinking. i.e. "Why is that like that?" "Because meme"

Decreasing usability on the web (23)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-04-21 07:22 ID:ReD2ZvAk

It seems like the web is getting harder to use.

Or maybe I'm just getting older.

  • I was using a search bar on a website. It had no "search" button ... it was just a text field. I tried hitting enter and nothing happened. The screen didn't change or anything. I finally reloaded and tried again and THEN my search actually returned results.
  • I was tabbing through a webpage, but the links were never highlighted or outlined to let me know that I was tabbed on them.
  • Webpages have become harder to read! I'm serious. There is something wrong with the new age typefaces. It's like someone decided to make a new font that inherited 3 X chromosomes so every character could be big, but skinny.

I am not adapting well to the future at all.

Whose idea was it to make https so popular? My browser will often get an https "secure connection failed" for no real reason other than that the website forced https instead of http. One time it even gave me an https error when directing me to a firefox help forum thread about https errors. Also when trying to access free wifi that have those "accept our terms of use" redirect pages at places like a library or cafe, it will give me an "Unsecure" error for any website that uses https, forcing anyone who wants to log in to memorize a specific http site. What a mess.

The web as an all-encompassing method of digital presentation was a massive mistake as we pay for it every single day. What exactly was wrong with using different protocols for different types of file and server. It's not like anyone using a browser would notice the change from HTTP to Gopher to FTP in terms of their actual interaction with the computer itself (in that it's all in the same program and obeys that program's laws).

Sometimes I even think HTML has been a joke that's gone on too long and we should all go back to text files.

I hate how so many news sites nowadays use such huge fonts and pictures, plus add floating banners taking up 20-30% of the vertical space, so that even on a 1080p monitor it's like you're browsing in 640x480 mode. People design for mobile and then adapt the same god-awful UX to the desktop instead of the other way around.

Here's a serious reply after half a year (only >>5 is half-serious):

> How do you join?

Easy way: get involved in the web scene, hang out on fora and irc channels. Become friends with people; you'll find quite a few are in the scene. Show them your skill, gain their trust and eventually ask to join their group. This method is slow, but if you are genuinely interested it comes naturally.

Hard way: Find a group with a public email address and convince them that you are skilled and trustworthy. This method seems simpler, but it's very hard to convince someone to put their security in the hands of cooldude33@shitmail.com . Do you want to be a member of a group that accepts people as member after a few emails?

Mixi is one of SNS that's similar to "hi5".
invite-only registration, viewer tracker, etc..
and many mixi users hate this tracker function.

As a fan of glossopoeia, I was surprised to find that Volapuk has been preserved on the Japanese internet.
