Review of a Hub on optimization. The hub is not human, it is corporate.
Here is a photo, only because the machines like photos.
A hub that reads like a strange automaton.
The hub is found here; http://bloggingcage.hubpages.com
SEO, SEO SEO, that is keyword stuffing. Optimization, optimization and optimization is also stuffing.
It is really spooky. The Hubber is not a person. The hubs scare me. The wording works but it sounds/reads like a machine wrote them. Well actually the wording is really weird.
Entity is a real word. It describes something that exists. SEO is real, it serves its purpose as do corporate entities. But they are inhuman. They are structure driven programs to produce optimization of a presence within a given field.
(Ok, that is weird writing also to prove my point)
This hub will rank high or be censored. That is weird. This hub will drive traffic, that is weird.
I write for a living, and I like doing that. I read for a great deal of my living and I like doing that.
But I also investigate, communicate and prognosticate. Believe me writing a legal brief for an Appellate Court is very aimed and strategic and legalistic scribing. We all should be able to write for an audience.
So what happens if your audience (search engines) is a machine and not a human entity? And in fact you are published as a like entity? This is possible for one reason: Because the common consumer is that sad.
I do not make money with online writing, yet all my writing is online – so to speak
I have a daughter and she is never over 30 by divine agreement. She is one of the most powerful women I know. One time she looked me in the eye and said – “you are not the boss of me”. I think she was four. The internet is not quite an adult in the present state, it is really prepubescent. And guess what –It is not the boss of me! The day that the internet starts telling me how to create and express myself is the day we will not see.
The frigging Internet is my tool, I am not its tool. And so I go back to a declaration of internet rights that I wrote for the dotcommoner in 2000. (yes I am the man who first wrote that word) I cannot find it but it should be somewhere in the ICANN GA List archives. So here I paraphrase the notions that the founding fathers debated.
Artificial, non-human means shall not be allowed to censor.
Each human has a right to internet access.
Countries that prohibit fundamental notions of free expression shall be prohibited access to the internet.
IP interests shall not be expanded through the internet.
All communications on the internet shall have equal access to the internet.
e-commerce shall be protected from multiple taxation.
This is a serious issue, just think about children texting their thoughts.
And then we went on to adopt a whole lot of stuff related to domain names. It did not work, we were crunched and munched by huge campaigns supported by IP interests.
But our fears are just as justified today. This idea of computer programming dictating how we write is a scary. Assume that how we write is how we communicate our thoughts. Thoughts are nothing until expressed, and now how we express and or think is dictated by a machine.
