Telekomunikasyona, globallesmeye ragmen..

Lost un son bolumunde 1.5 saniyelik bir konusma sonrasinda hissettiklerimi kagida dokme ve duygularimi ifade etme zorunda oldugumu hissettim. Col e dusen asker gorunumdeki bir elemanin karsina, iki tane atli gerilla cikiyor. Elinde kalasnikof silahlarla kendi aralarinda bir dille konusuyorlar ama tabiki bizim elemana silahlari dogrultunca iletisim kurmaya calisiyor farkli dillerde.. ” Do you speak English?” su dili biliyormusun bunu biliyormusun, ardindan ” Turk-ce bi-li yormusun ?” sorusunu yoneltiyor… Karsisindakiler esmer, pestemalli, at ustunde, ellerinde, savas etigine uymadigi icin uluslararasi platformlarda banlanan, 5 metreden ateslendiginde kol kopartabilecek guce sahip silahlar… Boyle bariz belirgin ayirici sifatlari varken, bizim elemanin kalkip Turkce biliyormusun diye sormasinin altinda gondermeler aramanin komplocu bir yaklasim olacagini dusunenler olabilir. Lakin sadece bu sahnenin etkisiyle olmasa da genel olarak kanaatimin ifade etmede fayda olacagi dusuncesindeyim.

Reflections about Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962

Cuban Missile Crisis

“After we beat the Russians on the cold war…” Having listened to one of my professors at university, I have been thinking about how much sure he was while speaking of cold war issues. Working at Pentagon surely has given him a lot to build up his mindset about the foreign affairs in an understanding of power dominance. Later on, I was surprised to see a chapter of the book that I borrowed from the library -long time ago- that is about the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. I quickly read it to learn about the interesting details. Here, I’m not going to give a brief explanation of the whole story but try to elaborate on the case with the actors, in my words. (more…)

Güneş Ülkesi

Tommaso Campanella
Bordo Siyah Klasik Yayınları, 2006, İstanbul.
Türkçesi: Veysel ATAYMAN

Yazar ile alakalı kısa bilgiler

16. Yüzyılın ikinci yarısında İtalya’da dünyaya gelen, küçük yaşta ilim tahsil ederek eğitimine hızlı başladı. Aristoculuk’dan ayrılarak algı ve duyunun ön plana çıktığı çizgide eserler verdi.

Ütopya denilince akla gelen kavram ve manaları tartışarak başlayan kitap, belli ki yazıldığı zamanın fikir akımlarından ciddi bir şekilde etkilenmiş. Sosyal meselelerin işlendiği Güneş Ülkesi’nden bahsederken seçilen yöntem, iki kişi arasındaki dialog üzerinden anlatmadır. Cenovalı bir denizci ile Hospitalit (Orta Çağ’da kutsal yerlerde hastalanan hacılara bakan dayanışma kurumunun üyelerine verilen ad) arasında geçen konuşmalarda anlatılan Güneş Ülkesi’nin, anlatan şahsın bizzat ziyaret ettiği gelişmiş bir toplum ve Hint Denizi’ndeki bir ada devleti olduğunu anlıyoruz.

40.000 USD winner ad that we produced

Did I ever mentioned about the ad that we managed to produce in Turkey and won 50.000 Turkish Liras (Approximately 40.000 USD at the time of winning) Infact I played a major role in the making of the film although I didn’t starred in it, but the backstage ‘making of’.

The challenge was arranged by a career site ( www.yenibiris.com ) of leading media group of Turkiye ( Dogan Holding ) The goal was to shot an ad for yenibiris.com, upload it in sendeyolla.com, promote it so that it becomes the most viewed video. We managed to make 800.000 people watch our movie. Thats almost a million in a month!

Of course, that was quite a long and exciting story for us, the competition, frustration when we were behind and fear of being beaten by ads that not even match our quality of hard work of endless nights.

After a challenging and breath taking month of adventure, we become first amongst a bulk of 300 videos. We went to Istanbul for our prize ceromony that took place in Hurriyet Media Towers and had been covered there days in a row in leading newspaper of Turkiye, Hurriyet.

Ok, enough chatter. We earned grand prize of 40.000 USD in one of the first Internet marketing challenges in Turkey and also received the nominees ‘Best ad’ award.
