I still remember reading Naomi Klein’s cultural manifesto, No Logo, in my first year at university – it was a book angry with the branded world and looking to promote alter-globalisation. Three years later, I remember reading Thomas Friedman’s “The World is Flat” – his account of how globalisation has acted to level the playing fields in terms of commerce. Today, I cannot even remember the last time someone even mentioned the word “globalisation”. What was – based on my lecturers’ selections of readings – hot topics in 2004 and 2007 is really, really old news in 2013.
Increasingly I find myself being told that I have become a “Facebook Power User” or that I always seem to discover new and interesting websites. It is no secret that I spend a fair amount of time online and that I LOVE Mashable. But I recognise that many of my friends have corporate jobs – the type where Facebook is blocked. So as a public service I have decided to dedicate some time in my blog to sharing some of the interesting websites I have come across. First up, and appropriately relevant to my current blog quest (#CapeTownBucketList) - Bucketlist.org.
