New media, information and communication technologies (ICTs) and social networking sites allow for the public to become producers of their own content, to share information, pictures, video and audio to users around the world.

After many weeks of blogging on sustainability, renewable energy sources, solar power, education systems, economic problems and much more... I have come to the realisation that I achieved my goal for this blog without even realising it.

Gamification gaining Klout

Hey all, Been a while since I last wrote, exams and the like took up some time.

Some of you may have noticed in the absence between this and my last post, that Gamification has really picked up and been caught on the global radar, with BBCNews even offering an explanation of it, and a brief rationale as to why it might be successfully implemented. So, now that I've given myself a cyber pat-on-the-back for predicting the trend, I'd like to move along to an interesting little "semi-gamified" social networking tool.

It's called Klout and it, with your blessing, accesses your varying social networking sites to form an analysis of your importance, prestige, style and how much of an effect you have on what your fellow networked users use. Giving you interesting titles and achievements as it does so!

Which tablet should you choose?

You walk into an electronic store with the hope of picking up a tablet with the titan reputation that everyone has been talking about. Standing at the front of all the displays a twinge of frustration looms when your eyes scatter over the tablets which all look the same. Great, which one were my friends talking about? And what about that one? It looks the same...?!

First things first… I am not a hippie. I am not a tree-hugger. I am not a political activist. I am just a Journalism student, who has a keen interest in History, Politics and humanity’s incredible ability to ruin all the good stuff about this planet of ours.

I am a cynic. I am critical. I do believe that we can use history and past mistakes to fix the present and secure a better future. Global warming - I think I believe it exists. The apocalypse of 2012 – I’m rooting for that to be real, for it to be a cleansing session for our world. South Africa – I’m a true patriot at heart but very aware of this country’s flaws and inability to solve crises.
