From the good folks at College Humor we have an amusing parody of the Matrix franchise which enlightens us to the fact that Facebook isn’t free and tells us exactly how much it costs! What it doesn’t tell us is where to send the check. Or rather, what is to be done if we’re disturbed by this new knowledge. Although, honestly, positing a remedy for this state of affairs is beyond the scope of such a short work. I guess it’s up to us to start working on the sequel.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
