“Better Online Living through Content Moderation” Reading Summary 6

  When analyzing the argument that Melissa King discusses in the article, some of the examples that she mentioned were a little farfetched. I agree with what she was saying in regards to her statement on “nobody should be required to read or listen to content if they do not want to”, however, when she used an example of someone having PTSD to trigger their anxiety—that was far left.  This small issue, I do believe that King makes some valid points in regards to internet censors and content moderation.

Cyberbullying is an issue that we need to take on with full force, cyberbullying can be prevented by not only content moderation, but also the fact that one who is being cyberbullies can simply remove themselves from the situation by logging off whatever social media they are being targeted on. By doing this, Many cyberbully cases can simply fade with time and also. With online abuse specifically, I believe that it is one-hundred percent avoidable. There are so many opportunities for content moderation such as deleting the app that you are using or using a blacklist feature on the social media platforms, which is something that Melissa King also suggests. I also believe that using women as targets on these social media platforms is wrong and unjust, and is a double standard in today’s media society. For instance, a female who posts a risqué photo online will be slut-shamed online as opposed to a male who can post something...

Once the concept of color walking was established in the initial paragraph. Readers were now able to expand their understanding of color walking by being able to establish a flexibility within the experiment to transition from color to color.

This lead the spectators eyes to move from left to the right lavender bag. A secondary visual pattern that developed was the yellow cab which guided the spectators vision downward from a “yellow cab” to a “side street”.

Tradition vs. Ambition (Built Envirmoment Analysis)

The built environment of a city consists of various elements that help produce a conducive atmosphere for all that inhabit the space. In the physical environment, the placement of structures ranging from business to domestic, establishes a tone which contributes to the overall balance between commerce and commonwealth. Recreational resources induce fellowship between residents, churning the feeling of cohesiveness throughout the environment. Population size in combination with diversity reveals the built environment’s capacity to provide its residence with individual amenities; while, still encompassing the conventional neighborhood vibe. The city of Decatur located fifteen minutes from downtown Atlanta has captured the finite details of an “ideal” built environment. Decatur’s mastery of a balanced built environment has produces an overwhelming sense of community that surrounds the space. Downtown Atlanta’s built environment strives to produce a “Ideal” perception of community throughout the downtown specter. However, the built environment of Downtown Atlanta is an ever growing built environment. The outcome is a city trying to satisfy the contributing aspects of a built environment without having a steady hand on the inclusive outlook of the space. As a result, Downtown Atlanta’s built environment processes a weaker sense of community.
