Compact Disc was being standardized, its capacity was arranged to accommodate the space of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, at the insistence of Sony executive Norio Ohga apparently. In retrospect it appears obvious a media technology should adjust to media art whenever we can, not vice versa. This is less possible when new press technologies allow new kinds of creation, but that’s what makes them so interesting.
I’ve been working primarily on books for the past 5 years, mostly because I’m excited at the new options they allow. I’m impressed – and excited – when books do stuff that can’t be done for print out books, partially because books often can’t catch the state-of-the-art uses of printer ink on paper. Looking on 2015 back, there is one book more than every other that demonstrated the options of the book as an art form, while at the same time being fun, captivating, and awe-inspiring, Paul Ford’s What Is Code? Unfortunately, today’s ebook technology criteria can’t fully support this work. The compact disc of book can store only four. 5 movements of Beethoven’s Ninth.
That makes me unfortunate. You might ask, how does What Is Code? HTML5 web application for Business Week man, not with the basic idea of making an ebook. Nonetheless, WHAT’S Code? They have a title page. It has chapters, sections, footnotes, and a table of contents which support a linear narrative. They have marginal notes, figures, and asides. Despite its foolishness, it’s hard to imagine What Is Code?

Although the share buttons and video embeds are mainly adornments for the written text, activity modules are core to the book’s exposition. The written publication is approximately code, and by bringing code to life, the audience becomes immersed in the book’s subject matter. Which greeter automatic robot that waves and appears to know the audience, showing the book’s “intelligence”.
So it seemed a win-win situation, where unemployment could stay high, giving the advantage to bosses, while the overall economy was growing, fueled by easy credit. But even the banking collapse is being used by the ruling elite for their own ends. They now tell the public that because the governments needed to bail out the banks we’ve to pay back that debt by cutting public services. What they don’t really tell the public is that debts can be easy written off through something called, “quantitative easing”. What this signifies in English is printing money.
Governments and banking institutions all be capable of print out as much money as they like. Today Or as we’ve, the money is produced in computers electronically. So a bank would need to be mind-bogglingly incompetent to look bankrupt when they can do that. The only restriction on printing money is inflation. Print much money too quickly and inflation goes through the roofing too. We are told that people need austerity because banks have gone broke.
But is this true? Isn’t it strange that austerity appear to greatly advantage the wealthy, who cause this turmoil in the first place. Do we have to accept austerity? The only country in the world not to accept the con-trick that banks are going bust was Iceland. They attempted it on but the government got voted out of power there. Unfortunately, the new government again tried the same trick; however, the folks of Iceland wouldn’t accept it. They compelled another election and managed to get people elected who weren’t professional politicians.
The new Federal government, of bailing out the banking institutions instead, charged the bank owners with fraud. As a result, some were placed into jail, while others fled the nationwide country. The main point is that if some people knocked on your door and told you: “you borrowed from us a million dollars”, you’ll call the authorities and charge these social people with either scams or extortion.
Yet banks are doing the same thing to whole countries and are getting away with it. Associated with that the wealthy own almost all the newspapers and TV stations and so can use the media to cover up the reality of what is absolutely taking place. The unfortunate simple truth is that the ruling top notch will continue steadily to do that and even press it further while they can escape with it.
It is visible, that in enough time when Western countries used Keynesian Economics that it was also enough time when we experienced the Cold War. The Traditional western ruling elite in those days feared an internationally Communist revolution greatly. This is why we had wars in Vietnam and Korea. So they didn’t dare force austerity onto the people at the moment because it could fuel a Communist revolution in Western countries. But in the 1970s it became clear that the USSR was shedding the cold battle, while in Communist China, its innovator Mao Zedong got died and the ones who followed acquired less interest in promoting Communism abroad.
