Hi mum! Here's a quick little webpage just for you to visit, where I'll put
links and information up occasionally that might be of interest to you. Over
time, it may be integrated into my "Information Management Guide",
or I may delete it if it does not appear to be of much use. I hope you enjoy
visiting it while you're here. I am also happy to put stories or articles you've
written up on this webpage so people can visit and read them, if you wish! Just
e-mail them to me.
The first four websites consistently pop up in lists of anti-tv websites as recommended
sites to visit on this topic. The other three sites contain the aforementioned
lists! This should be plenty to get you started on this topic.
The Kill Your TV Website-
"The website dedicated to exposing television for what it is: An addictive
device which keeps the lower classes subdued; a perpetuator of violence and
materialism; and a silent destroyer of intellectualism."
TV Turnoff Network- Formerly known
as "TV Free America". "The TV-Turnoff Network encourages children
and adults to watch less television in order to promote healthier lives and
White Dot- Has a few interesting
articles (a sample from their magazine), and the promotion of their upcoming
book, "Get a Life" is interesting.
Anti-Television: TV schedules and reviews- A listing of nine websites
against television or excessive tv watching, and one website about how the
Internet will replace TV. Some excellent sites are listed here.
TV Turnoff Rocks Australia- All about Adbuster's recent (April 2000) Australian
campaign, and their distinct lack of success in getting their anti-commercials
on commercial TV. Include a phone number of the Australian organizer.
University of Texas, Dept. of Advertising links to anti-advertising resources
on the Internet. Some are about specific types of advertising (e.g. anti-smoking/drugs),
other sites listed are more general. 14 websites listed.
McSpotlight- McLibel, McDonalds
& globalization,...let's just say I doubt these guys buy a lot of "McHappy
Meals". They also have a part of their website where they list past &
campaigns, and a list of Australian activist anti-McD groups.
My Favourite Search Engine
Northern Light- A very good
search engine, use quotation marks "" to enclose a phrase (e.g.
"world war one"), brackets () to indicate nesting ((dogs or
cats) and baths), and the words and, or, and not
to express inclusion or exclusion of terms (lions not football).
