As we are brand new in this business we are always looking for new ways of inspiration.
There are several websites out there which represent new media arts with social aspects to the fullest, as there is
These projects, as many other websites, are important sources to fill the gaps between user-generated content and visual forms of presentation.
Unfortunately, despite Depthcore or Deviantart, the websites themselves have this ridiculous look & feel, which feels cheap and ugly.
We are here to change this.
Check this valuable project of us, for example: http://ciphanet.tumblr.com.
This is where artists are represented today: online, always up to date, without advertisements & with a beautiful look and feel.
All the best,
This is a message to our potential sponsors: We are looking for media partners, mainly for zockerseele.com but also for our newest project, gizmeo.com.
The first one mentioned is an independent medium about videogames.
The second one is about electronic gadgets (this is where the e comes from).
If you are interested (maybe Konami, Square Enix or Atlus, …), don’t hesitate to contact us!
You can look up the prices there: http://zockerseele.com/werbung. The prices listed there are only for zockerseele.com. If you are interested in sponsoring gizmeo, just contact us and we will give you more information.
Thank you for your interest and we hope to hear from you soon!
All the best,

Happy calculating! 🙂
All the best,

Unfortunately Sony cancelled the application folding@home with their latest PS3-firmware-update. We don’t know why they are doing this, but since the release of the slim version the Japanese corporation is fucking this great console up. Ask geohot for more information. Sorry for the inconvenience, we are not responsible for this.
P.S.: Sony, please bring back Linux!
This is like what we do for a-g-e-s:
“Here are the five media trends I’m watching and will focus on in future articles on this site:
Sources and advertisers going direct
Context is King
Journalist as brand
Reporting as service
Media companies as technology companies”
Continues at: http://mediapunk.net/2010/05/5-media-trends-to-watch/.
We share the opinion that content is king instead of context is king. Context is in fact important, but only if you want to sell advertising.
It’s nothing new, however, that we see shifting media companies to tech companies. When you are doing new media you need technology to do it. So, in the future, it will be possible that you get in fact technology from those who started with media. Like, smartphones or tablet PCs or even gaming consoles.
The term journalist as a brand is typical American philosophy. The whole country is a corporation and corporations need brands. But it’s problematic in staying true and be effective in what you do: If you in fact are the brand, you are no longer an individual. You loose your credibility. So, we would say: The mediae you create could be a brand. Don’t sell yourself! This is stupid and very dangerous.
Anyway, interesting article, but no concept for Europe or other parts of the world.
We are happy. R-e-a-l-l-y happy! Like, it’s-Xmas-happy. We just realized our second commercial project:
Simply put, it is a brand new blog about gadgets.
Based on the gizmo-archive of cipha.de, it’s also kind of alternative and not very commercial. From a content-point-of-view. But the domain of course is and the future plans also. In 2050 we want to make money with it. 😉
We share the opinion that it is possible to built commercial projects with alternative contents. It’s part of our philosophy.
Mainstream is easy, just do porn.
It is the deepness that counts. To achieve this goal you have to think different. This is not just a slogan, it is part of our reality. We write, we shape it. And nothing else.
We will soon update the where?-page to give you further information about http://gizmeo.com, so stay tuned.
Keep being awesome!
All the best,
the aethyx staff
