WordPress problems #2

After I added all my papers and pictures again I decided to make a backup. For some odd reason something went wrong during the backup. Don’t ask my how, why or when. Suddenly my site didn’t show up at all. Nothing. After resetting reading permissions on my server things seemed to be working again but with a default WordPress theme. How odd is that? I changed back to the nice CoffeeSpot theme and reactivated my plug-ins. So now I am crossing my fingers. I am actually kind of scared of making another backup but I am going to be brave and try again. I am planning on adding some new plugins and features such as the Ultimate Tag Warrior.

WordPress problems #1

Yesterday I noticed that some of my pictures were gone. Everything seemed to be alright on the front page, but there were no pictures in the post pages. I think this happened after I installed the WPG2 plug in which “seamlessly” integrates Gallery2 into WordPress. Wether WPG2 is “responsible” or not my whole WordPress upload directory is gone!

And of course there are still Ask.com and Yahoo! (which is focusing more on social search). These big media conglomerates are dominating the search engine landscape and there seems to be an endless media concentration going on. What is the impact on the access to information when only a few players dominate the market?

I am a hard bloggin’ scientist

I am an official self proclaimed hard bloggin’ scientist now. To find out what this means please read the hard bloggin’ scientist Manifest Vo.1 This initiative was pointed out to the Masters of Media by Geert Lovink. When I read the manifesto I could identify with it, but at the same time it made me reconsider my blog. This blog is supposed to be a research tool for my Master Thesis (hence #4), but so far I haven’t written down any ideas. So I am planning on writing down more random thoughts and maybe sketch them out to get a sense of where I am going. I am also planning on participating more on other blogs, besides our own collaborative Masters of Media blog. I have to get out of my own personal safe blog shell and participate in the big World Wide Web world!
