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.
  • Please don't bother posting browser crashers or shock sites. They'll get removed, and you might get banned.

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.

I know it might be retarded to say this about Internet culture, but I highly recommend you guys read Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West". Although he can get a bit autistic with pseudo-metaphysics, his main ideas are on point, but the Internet is recent and clear evidence that his historical model can apply to even subcultures AS LONG AS there is a higher-ideal(s) and enough stimuli and people to participate. (Despite that, if you want a long-lasting culture, religion IS necessary. Materialism does not a culture make.)

IRC: why did it fail? (94)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-06 01:14 ID:6ppXr5qs

It's widely banned for its tendency to be a DDoS lightningrod, and only slightly less infamous for its impenetrable cliques of time-wasting losers. Was IRC just in the wrong place at the wrong time, or is the protocol responsible for its own failure? And how could we do better?

Discuss!

67 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2018-06-15 10:10 ID:zO8Vd9gV

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"

How to succeed with a textboard:

  • Find communities to target for new user growth / spam the link to your friends
  • Get actual discussions going; find topics
  • Have as few boards as possible. A bunch of boards = a bunch of dead boards
  • ?????
  • Don't profit

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-07-23 05:10 ID:49lrqLyV

Heres my idea for a textboard: no spam, no illegal, no banning, full free speech, everyone is friendpy and nice, brick wall background pattern, no names or tripcodes,many boarda for each different topic but not too many.. maybe usere can create own?

Decreasing usability on the web (24)

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.

Same with how slow a lot of computing is these days in terms of UI and other things. Makes you wonder what it would be like if we didn't waste it all on useless trash and bloated code. Might as well have just stayed on DOS if we were going to have such annoying experiences.
