The Media

Watch Where You Post “Anonymously”


The Lee Watch blog, a great source of information about Lee Enterprises, has a pretty frightening post up about the dangers of posting online when you assume your identity is safe.

It seems the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s “social media editor”  (who says papers are hurting for money?) Kurt Greenbaum decided to out a commenter who left a lewd comment on his thought-provoking journalistic masterpiece, “What’s the Craziest Thing You’ve Ever Eaten?”.

Greenbaum claims to have contacted the employer of the commenter who, with Greenbaum’s help, was able to track down the culprit, who resigned once confronted. Assuming Greenbaum’s triumphant tale is true, it’s troubling to imagine that an editor at a newspaper would act like this. Having some experience with with the subject, however, it’s certainly not surprising.

It raises a number of interesting questions, certainly. How bound are newspapers or any site to follow their privacy policies? How foolish would an anonymous source have to be to trust someone from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch? What in the hell does a newspaper need a social media editor to do?

Careful out there. Kurt Greenbaum is watching.

  • Attracting a TV requires a few basic shapes such as rectangles, which is the straightforward part. Turning it straight into 3D, takes practice. The artist needs to watch out for various degrees associated with values and shadows so as to create shading. To turn toned surfaces into 3D is usually a matter of building a gradual change throughout value from gentle to dark. This gradual alter will add curves towards TV and provide the effect of depth and for that reason, a 3D TELEVISION SET.

    1. Draw a rectangular shape to represent how big the TV.

    2. Create another rectangle inside the first rectangle for you to represent the tv screen.

    3. Draw two lines decreasing from center of the first rectangular shape to represent the actual height of TELEVISION SET.

    4. Draw a rectangular shape and center it underneath the two lines for you to represent the Video’s stand.

    5. Add gradual shading on the rectangle of it and stand for you to transition from mild to dark. Do not add shading for the screen. Gradual shading will build a curved surface and present a 3D consequence. Create the darkest worth of shading on the edges.
