I Am Mad About Channel Naming


Yet some of you fucking retards keep tagging channels as “D-CHANNELNAME”. That little D (stands for “digital”) makes me SO GODDAMNED ANGRY because it shows you idiots have no idea what the hell you’re dealing with, you’re just copying whatever shit People On The Internet are doing because it seems sorta cool. Japan finally turned off basically all analog television in July this year, and raws created with analog capping equipment haven’t been common even on Japanese P2P networks for several fucking years. There is no fucking need to distinguish that your precious raw is digital in origin, because it literally cannot be anything else.

    You know nothing.

    My boss used to run an education venture – like a private school where you can take classes for various uni-level courses (don’t know what exactly is that called in english speaking lands).

    Anyway, the guy knew that extremely agressive advertising is the key to getting the most people in, and at one point he managed to read a book about SEO. Naturally, we had keywords and shit up the wazoo on every site, for every class we were starting, and every one we could start (if there were enough people interested to form a class – and if we could find a teacher who could teach that stuff, a place to run work practice at, etc). As well as all of the other “internet only” projects we had running so the guy could thump his chest and give ten-minute long introductions whenever someone asked about what the company is doing. And of course this made the guy look like the Great Wizard of Oz when it concerned anything related to computers or the Internet, which did not have high levels of penetration in the populace beyond Facebook anyway, since this is a small eastern european city. As a result, whenever someone wanted to become popular on the Internet, they came to my boss, who lied out of his ass using random bullshit tech buzzwords and just listening to it made me want to vomit. But all the tech-speak was chinese to the guys who came to him, which meant he got to make and promote a lot of guys’ websites – this promotion meant flooding the site urls and descriptions on the 400 or so auto-syndicated wordpress blogs the guy had. And making 10-20 new blogs, either on new domains or subdomains, to further expand the network.

    On non-WP sites, I also had to link every fucking keyword ever, over the years this expanded to hundreds of keywords+links splattered on the site headers and footers. Eventually 99% of the sites got banned from google, and I wrote a randomizer that works kind of like our own private ad network – call it externally, and it gives you back a standard box with a random keyword/link/description combination. That way, static pages suddenly become dynamic and this prolongs the google ban.

    Anyway, the point I’m getting to… the guy used education as a big selling point, and he had lotsa computer people working there (the perks of running web developer courses means that there is an ample supply of cheap or free workforce). So one thing to promote was how badly everyone else knows computers (this was true), and how much they can learn at us (this wasn’t).
    Add in a guy whose job was to write articles and come up with really fancy the keywords and slogans, which were really just eccentric synonyms of normal things.

    So a bunch of normal “computer education classes” got promoted as “fighting against digital illiteracy among the adult populace”. And since “digital” was a fairly fancy word in a country that made its due by farming for over a millennia, we also put “digital” in front of anything that could be prefixed with it. Digital courses, digital classes, digital knowledge, digital adult learning, digital learning, digital illiteracy, digital literacy, digital media, digital messaging, digital equal opportunity, digital every fucking goddamn thing. I could go on and on here.

    It was a living hell working there. Plus the guy was an asshole too, and in reality knew jack about computers. Couldn’t set up a router either. At one time I had to recover about 300gb of sensitive backup data we put on a DOA external hdd, this is a tale on its own (for starters, most computers in the office only had USB1 connectors).

    And I still have a root mysql account at the place… instead of changing all wordpress passes, they just added a global htaccess on the /wp-admin/ and /administrator/ folders in httpd.conf to keep me out, which I can get with SELECT LOAD_FILE(‘/usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf’).
