  • Opinion: Tech journalism; where standards go to die | Teic.ie
    from production the fire in which human events are really forged and indeed the publishing industry s own loss of faith in its mission Consumer journalism has its place but its place is in magazines How exactly does a newspaper report on the latest Nokia phone fit in to the traditional role of a newspaper to inform the read of events of universal significance in order to allow themselves to orient themselves in the world There is worse to come though There is user generated content UGC why just have readers when you can get them to write your publications for you Especially if it s free Publishing companies deeply hurt by their mega profits being reduced to mere super profits latched on to UGC not because they really think it s the future of journalism but rather because they think there is no future in journalism If they are right it s not because of the internet it s because journalists and publishers have lost all faith in their enterprise and no longer have the ability to understand the world Instead of saying This is what we know newspapers and magazines now ask readers What do you think What at times looks like a democratic revolution in the media is in fact a response to being left rudderless in the face of social and economic upheaval that has made minced meat of all of the old certainties that we once traded in Tech journalists whose critical faculties have been so easily bought off with press releases and feeling the pinch from editors who are demanding more and more copy in less time need to stand up and say there is a case for actual reporting and that journalism is not merely a forum for conviviality community and therapy In

  • Opinion: The folly of tech haters | Teic.ie
    car it might be worth pointing out that the reason they have neither has nothing to do with technology and everything to do with the fact that both non inventions would result in a lot of accidental deaths In short we already do live in the future Soi disant objectors have long feigned uninterest in technology people who complain loudly about mobile phones while continuing to use them In some circles there is a certain credibility to be had from rejecting technology or for the less committed accepting it and then complaining about it This has rather rapidly mutated into today s bien pensant orthodoxy whinging about the things that have the potential to liberate us The current fad for organic food for instance is built on a foundation of prejudice that totally misunderstands the concept of natural and ignores the fact that one man Norman Borlaug saved more lives than Hitler and Stalin managed to destroy simply by getting us past organic food For anyone who doesn t know who Borlaug was may I suggest using Google or another wonderful technology called the book Today unabashed enthusiasm for technological development is seen as rather embarrassing at best a kind of extension of many a pubescent boy s science fiction obsession at worst a heartless and evil plot to enslave people dreamt up by the likes of cod philosopher Ayn Rand Such an ahistorical view is also a profound misreading of politics Figures from the left such as HG Wells were just as keen on huge technological projects as the most committed Randroid Indeed Karl Marx saw the development of new technologies as one of the key forces driving society forward Rejection of technology is not in any way progressive in fact it is the opposite conservative Who cares about dinner party prejudice you say Who indeed The problem is not that people believe strange things that the Virgin Mary is angry at Irish bankers or that yoghurt has magical medical properties that doctors don t understand for instance but that anti technological sentiment is in danger of doing real damage to the future We have a love fear relationship with technology says James Woudhuysen professor of forecasting and innovation at De Montfort University Mainly fear The research and development recession in the West clearly demonstrates this he said Woudhuysen says that technology has failed to set us free with a caveat That s because only us can free us Technology is a means to an end freedom It is more than an enabler but less than a driver Technology is more or less a powerful mediator Its strength as an instrument affecting society is always governed by the general state of society Martin Amis is wrong because however we feel about McDonalds the engine of development makes society a better place and technology is a significant factor in that development So Windows 7 crashed and your mobile phone can t get a signal in the middle of a field
