Wave Goodbye to the Internet, USA!

Dec 21 2010 Published by under Text

I have always loved humor and laughter. As a young engineer I got an impulse to start a Dial-a-Joke in the San Jose/San Francisco area. I was aware of such humor services in other countries, such as Australia. This idea came from my belief in laughter. I could scarcely believe that I was the first person to create such a simple service in my region. Why was I the first? This was 1972 and it was illegal in the U.S. to use your own telephone. It was illegal in the U.S. to use your own answering machine. Hence it also virtually impossible to buy or own such devices. We had a monopoly phone system in our country then.” – Steve Wonziak on Net Neutrality

With that being said. It will be difficult, in the near future, for us to deliver the Media Collective to you as it currently stands.

Please take out your pen and check book. Ads will be erected for the highest bidder.

We will implement a token system in 2011. Be on the look out for the announcement.

Good day.
Happy Holidays.
Merry USA.

Here is What’s up with that? season 4, episode 5. A chilly, but bright Saturday morning. Everyone was in high spirits due to Oaken Bucket game that was to commence later that day. As usual, we stood in our spot out by the brick wall in front of Jake’s taking everything in that is Breakfast Club.

This episode wraps up season 4 for us. A big thank you to everyone who participated in this season. We could not have done it without you. We have various projects we will be working on over the winter months, so please stay tuned.

The questions asked in this episode were:

  1. You have 1,000,000 followers on Twitter and 1,000,000 friends on Facebook. What do you warn them about societies and governments?
  2. Please describe IU and Purdue to the aliens on the Internet.
  3. You are making a new world sport. How would you make a game out of politics?

Here is What’s up with that? season 4, episode 4. A chilly, overcast Saturday morning. The poor weather did not detour people from participating in the festivities. We even met an interesting group of munchkins and Scrabble Pieces. As usual, we stood in our spot out by the brick wall in front of Jake’s taking everything in that is Breakfast Club.

The questions asked in this episode were:

  1. You find a lame duck on your way back from class, how do you care for it?
  2. What is the most invasive way to be searched to ensure the safety of others?
  3. How do you feel about the government sponsorship of Call of Duty: Black Ops?
  4. What books would you like to see pulled and burned from libraries, Amazon, Borders, Von’s?
