The annoying thing is, I don’t mean what you think I mean. “Old” media, these days, has come to mean, like, television and newspapers. That is not what I mean. I find those things extremely uninteresting. Television and newspapers are uninteresting because they are still entirely culturally…
It’s not entirely related, but when it comes to radio…amateur radio is also pretty interesting. Granted, it’s all people just talking (music isn’t allowed), but sometimes amateur (or ham) radio is one of the best ways to communicate in a disaster. Cell phone towers can be taken out pretty quickly, but a few people can set up an antennae and a generator and be on the air within an hour or two max. (Ham radio played a big part in the Katrina disasters believe it or not.)
I feel like if we give the hurricanes ghetto names people will be more inclined to get away from them. Hurricane Irene sounds friendly. Hurricane Dijonae sounds like it could rip your weave out if you look at it the wrong way.
So today in my audio/video class we had to learn how to wrap cable. (It’s a little harder than you’d think, but once you get the hang of it it’s fine.) Well, I have this class at 8 in the morning. My group ended up being one of the first ones to learn to wrap the cable, so we were allowed to leave right afterward. We were done at 8:17…and this is my only class today (which normally lasts 4 hours.) Not sure what to do with myself now. I’m too awake to go back to bed.
