The most disturbing element about the Little India Riots is not that that they happened, but the lack of critical thinking in the commentary afterwards. Singapore has a problem. A big problem. It’s citizens desperately need foreign workers in order to maintain their own quality of life, however there is a growing resentment towards these very same workers. The acerbity extends towards both extremes as well: low-paid workers for jobs that Singaporeans are unwilling to do; and, highly-paid workers for jobs Singaporeans an unable or unqualified to do. This acrimony is entirely understandable. It must be galling to be deemed only fit for a mediocre middle management role in your own country. However, very few Singaporeans are willing to admit this elephant in the room. When it is broached it is within a vacuum of thoughtful process: plagued by emotion and copious self-interest. And a big contributor is Singapore’s media system.Tags: facebook, failure, instagram, little india, news, reddit, riot, singapore, Social Media, twitter, whatsapp, you tube

Some very interesting information in this infographic, but it’s disappointing that it doesn’t include a more comprehensive list of sources. What there is however, does leave me with a couple of questions: what sort of return would you need if you spent $200k on a 24 hours of twitter promotion? Do you follow _necro__? =)Tags: china, infographic, promotion, twitter, vine
There’s some very interesting data compiled in this infographic. What is fascinating is how much Facebook dominates. The question everyone wants to know is will it continue? I expect over the forthcoming year we’ll see an increase in the use of Twitter and possibly Google Plus as well.

There was once a time, not so long ago, when the best thing about some movies was often the opening credits. Whether they were fun animated sequences, like in The Pink Panther or Catch Me If You Can, or the long, slow opening outer-space scenes from Alien and The Fifth Element. They always felt an integral and necessary part of the movie. However, recently the tendency is to move away from these elaborate introductions. In fact on many contemporary movies the traditional opening credits have been moved to the end and there are few or no opening credits at all. This is all part of a deepening trend in movie-making and Facebook is to blame.Tags: alien, catch me if you can, facebook, film-making, movies, pink panther, screenwriting, twitter
