  • 03/01/18--08:00: AR-15 Stands For
  • About

    AR-15 Stands For refers to a snowclone parodying pro-gun advocates following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting who corrected those that believed the “AR” in AR 15 stands for “Assault Rifle” when in fact it stands for “ArmaLite rifle.” In parodies, people claim various absurd things “AR” could stand for.

    Origin

    Discussions about banning the AR-15 grew prevalent after its use in several mass shootings, leading to a misconception that “AR” stood for “assault rifle.” Pro-gun advocates on Twitter corrected the misnomer by stating it stands for “Armalite,” the company that manufactured the gun. The increased discussion of the weapon after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting, in which the killer used an AR-15, saw further misnaming of the weapon, and in turn, increased corrections from pro-gun advocates. Many of these advocates made the point that people who don’t know the correct name of the gun should not be attempting to regulate it.

  • 03/01/18--12:25: Internet Censorship in China
  • Overview

    Internet Censorship in China refers to the strict provisions and restrictions placed on the Internet by the Chinese government in the People’s Republic of China.

    Background

    In 1994, the Internet arrived in China and has since become a powerful tool for sharing information and communication.

    Three years later, in 1997, the Ministry of Public Security attempted to secure control of the internet, instituting regulations on the web (excerpt of regulations below).[1]

    “Individuals are prohibited from using the Internet to: harm national security; disclose state secrets; or injure the interests of the state or society. Users are prohibited from using the Internet to create, replicate, retrieve, or transmit information that incites resistance to the PRC Constitution, laws, or administrative regulations; promoting the overthrow of the government or socialist system; undermining national unification; distorting the truth, spreading rumors, or destroying social order; or providing sexually suggestive material or encouraging gambling, violence, or murder. Users are prohibited from engaging in activities that harm the security of computer information networks and from using networks or changing network resources without prior approval.”

    Developments

    The Great Firewall of China

    On June 1st, 1997, Wired[4] magazine published an article entitled “The Great Firewall of China,” which is often credited as coining the colloquial name for the Golden Shield Project’s efforts to censor the Internet. The article begins:

    “At ISPs, Internet cafés, even state censorship committees, we meet the wired of China – and discover that the technology China needs to build the most powerful country on Earth in the 21st Century threatens to undermine the institutions that rule the nation. And Beijing’s control freaks are worried.”

    In 1998, to stifle the growing opposition parties found in China, the Communist Party of China banned the China Democracy Party.

    In addition, the government founded the Golden Shield Project that year. Its purpose is to provide nationwide network security but also manages the Bureau of Public Information and Network Security Supervision, which many believe to operate the Great Firewall of China (GFW), a censorship and surveillance project designed to block political dissent and opposition.[2]

    The GFW’s primary role is to block access to foreign or politically opposing websites in China as well as to slow down cross-border traffic. This has resulted in the the blocking and censorship of some of the world’s most widely-used websites and wildely-read news sources.[3] These include:

    Some of the GFW’s techniques for censorship include: IP blocking, DNS filtering and redirection, URL filter, connection reset and more. As a result, many in China attempt to circumvent the program by using secure VPNs. However, in 2017, VPNs were outlawed in China.[5]



    Examples of Censorship

    Big Yellow Duck

    “*Big Yellow Duck*” is a nickname given to a series of giant floating rubber duck sculptures designed by Dutch artist Florentijin Hofman. In June 2013, the phrase was banned by Chinese censors after an image of several giant rubber ducks photoshopped into the famous “Tank Man” photograph began circulating online in remembrance of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests.[6]

    On May 2nd, 2013, one of Hofman’s 54-foot high yellow inflatable ducks was launched in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbor (shown below, left). On May 15th, the sculpture mysteriously deflated (shown below, right), which resulted in the hashtag “#bigyellowduck” rising to the top searched keyword on the Chinese microblogging and social networking site Weibo.[7]



    Sina Weibo user Weiblog[8] subsequently posted a photoshopped version of the 1989 photograph “Tank Man”[9] (shown below, left) from the Tiananmen Square protests, in which the tanks were replaced with the large duck sculptures (shown below, right). Leading up to the anniversary of the protests on June 4th, several words were censored on Sina Weibo, including “1989,” “In today,” “anniversary” and “big yellow duck."



    Winnie the Pooh

    On July 17th, 2017, Chinese censors blocked memes featuring Winnie the Pooh after several viral images began circulating online that suggested a resemblance between the bear and Chinese president Xi Jinping (example below).


    The Letter “N”

    Following reports that the Chinese government would be discard term limits for presidents, allowing President Xi Jinping to remain in power,

  • 03/01/18--13:25: Freddie Freaker
  • About

    Freddie Freaker (more commonly known as Freddy Freaker) is a toy character created in the 1980s by L.A. Toys advertising a telephone number one could call, “1-900-490-FREAK,” whereupon the character would tell jokes. The character’s bizarre appearance and lack of known background made it an object of fascination on internet forums and the commercial was often referenced and remixed.

    Origin

    While concrete information about the character is sparse, anecdotal evidence points to the character being created in 1987. On November 10th, 2008, YouTuber Sylvacute84 posted the commercial featuring the character, gaining over 505,000 views (shown below).



    In the comments section of that video, a YouTube commenter named Patrick Simmons took credit for creating the character, writing:[1]

    Ok dude, you just made my day. I was the artist who designed and created this puppet for this commercial back in 1987 and until this moment I had never seen the final video for it. I was a very young buck at the time, just getting my start in the FX industry, so it was a pretty big deal to create something for a national ad. Thanks for posting it, my coworker and I laughed our asses off. By the way, the arms were designed to move and bend, so I have no idea why they left him in a Jesus pose. Peace.

    Spread

    A fascination with the character began spreading online, particularly in the mid-2000s. In July of 2013, a Tumblr page devoted to the character, fuckyeafreddyfreaker,[4] launched. On July 31st, 2014, Breaker.com[2] wrote about the character and spoke to Simmons about what he knew of the project. There, it was revealed that the terms “The Party Freak” and “Freddie Freaker” were trademarked in 1988 and cancelled in the mid-90s. Simmons also said he believed the toy was supposed to tell college-age jokes and it was advertised on MTV. In a small Facebook group devoted to the character,[3] it was revealed that the admin of that group, Kevin Leto, was the likely CEO of LA Toys, the company that made Freddie Freaker. On March 21st, 2015, the commercial was posted to /r/NotTimandEric,[5] where a commenter said they had called the number once and were told jokes in a free-form grumbly voice. A Wikia[6] has been created documenting all known information about the character.

    The character began seeing use in remix videos around 2016. On October 3rd, 2016, YouTuber BluShades uploaded a video of himself watching a long playlist of Freddie Freaker remixes and YouTube Poops, gaining over 24,000 views (shown below, left). The character gained more popularity after being mentioned by the Oney PlaysLet’s Play channel on December 25th, 2017 (shown below, right), which in turn inspired popular animations of their Freddie Freaker scenes.

  • Overview

    Chrome Music Lab is an experimental music creation website made by Google.. The site features a series of applications that allow users to learn about and play with sound, rhythm, melody, composition and more.

    Online History

    On March 9th, 2016, Google announced Chrome Music Lab on their blog, posting a series of experiments that allow people to play and create music on the web. [1] According to the post, they wrote, “the experiments are all built with the Web Audio API, a freely-accessible, open web standard that lets developers create and manipulate sound right in the browser. We’re also providing open-source code so that others can build new experiments based on what we’ve started.”

    That day, they released a video (shown below) to introduce the experiements. The video[2] received more than 100,000 views in two years.



    Features

    Chrome Music Lab is a website that features a series of interactive “Experiments,” with each one focusing on a different aspect of music.

    Strings

    Strings[3] is an experiment that allows users to “explore the natural mathematical relationship between a string’s length and its pitch.” When the user clicks and drags the cursor across the digital strings, various tones and pitches play.

    Oscillators

    Oscillators is a series of animated, anthropomorphic shapes that make various noises when clicked and dragged across the screen.



    Piano Roll

    Piano Roll is a digital player piano. The site describes it, “Originally, a piano roll was a roll of paper that you fed into a self-playing piano to make it play a piece. This experiment is inspired by piano rolls. You can watch the notes flow by, scrub it back and forth, and change the sounds.”[4]

    Harmonics

    Harmonics is an experiment to test how speed effects harmonic frequencies. Users can drag their mouse across the various frequencies to hear the differences.

    Voice Spinner

    Voice Spinner is a vocal recording experiment that allows users to change the pitch and speed of their own recorded voice. Users spin the digital wheel to hear the changes in pitch.



    Melody Maker

    Melody Maker is a digital grid that when users click the boxes, they can record, edit and play various notes.

    Kandinsky

    Kandisky combines drawing and music. Users draw on a blank canvas, and when they press the play button, a melody is played based upon where on the canvas the drawing sits. There is also a button to change the colors of the drawing, which changes the instruments that are playing.

    Arpeggios

    Arpeggios is designed to teach note names and how they build chords. Users click the note names and hear the musical scale associated with note name.

    Sound Waves

    Sound Waves features a digital keyboard that when pressed, a series of dots, representing sound waves, phyically moves. There is also the ability to zoom in to see a line connecting the dots.



    Chords

    Chords is a digital piano that, when a key is pressed, plays chords. Users can switch between major and minor chords to hear the difference.

    Spectogram

    Spectogram is an experiment that puts a picture to sounds. Users can drag their cursor over the screen to hear and see difference sounds, as well as select different instruments to see how they look when played.

    Rhythms

    Rhythms uses a series of digital characters to teach people about the patterns of sound in time. Click the grid to create different rhythms.

    Song Maker

    Song Maker allows users to click different notes on a grid to build a song. Users can also change the instruments, tempo and style of instrument used.

    To launch Song Maker, Google posted a video about the experiment (shown below).
