What really must be covered in your coursework and exam answers? Interpretation At the core of any and every answer or essay about poetry must be your own interpretation of the poem or poems you are writing about. It is this alone that attracts the majority of marks. In a nutshell, the more subtly you interpret a poem - and give support for your interpretation - the higher your marks, and grade, will be.
In the course of tracking down the sources of unlicensed distribution, they found many things, including the copying of his column to alt. One of the people I was hanging around with online back then was Gordy Thompson, who managed internet services at the New York Times.
They not only saw it miles off, they figured out early on that they needed a plan to deal with it, and during the early 90s they came up with not just one plan but several.
One was to partner with companies like America Online, a fast-growing subscription service that was less chaotic than the open internet.
Another plan was to educate the public about the behaviors required of them by copyright law. New payment models such as micropayments were proposed. Alternatively, they could pursue the profit margins enjoyed by radio and TV, if they became purely ad-supported.
Still another plan was to convince tech firms to make their hardware and software less capable of sharing, or to partner with the businesses running data networks to achieve the same goal.
Then there was the nuclear option: As these ideas were articulated, there was intense debate about the merits of various scenarios. Would DRM or walled gardens work better?
The unthinkable scenario unfolded something like this: Walled gardens would prove unpopular.
Digital advertising would reduce inefficiencies, and therefore profits. Dislike of micropayments would prevent widespread use. People would resist being educated to act against their own desires. Old habits of advertisers and readers would not transfer online.
Even ferocious litigation would be inadequate to constrain massive, sustained law-breaking. Hardware and software vendors would not regard copyright holders as allies, nor would they regard customers as enemies.
And, per Thompson, suing people who love something so much they want to share it would piss them off. Revolutions create a curious inversion of perception.
In ordinary times, people who do no more than describe the world around them are seen as pragmatists, while those who imagine fabulous alternative futures are viewed as radicals.
Inside the papers, the pragmatists were the ones simply looking out the window and noticing that the real world increasingly resembled the unthinkable scenario. These people were treated as if they were barking mad.
Meanwhile the people spinning visions of popular walled gardens and enthusiastic micropayment adoption, visions unsupported by reality, were regarded not as charlatans but saviors. When reality is labeled unthinkable, it creates a kind of sickness in an industry.
Leadership becomes faith-based, while employees who have the temerity to suggest that what seems to be happening is in fact happening are herded into Innovation Departments, where they can be ignored en bloc. This shunting aside of the realists in favor of the fabulists has different effects on different industries at different times.
One of the effects on the newspapers is that many of their most passionate defenders are unable, even now, to plan for a world in which the industry they knew is visibly going away. As a result, the conversation has degenerated into the enthusiastic grasping at straws, pursued by skeptical responses.
There is no general model for newspapers to replace the one the internet just broke. With the old economics destroyed, organizational forms perfected for industrial production have to be replaced with structures optimized for digital data.
It makes increasingly less sense even to talk about a publishing industry, because the core problem publishing solves — the incredible difficulty, complexity, and expense of making something available to the public — has stopped being a problem. She was able to find many descriptions of life in the early s, the era before movable type.
