There are certainly a large amount of websites available that utilize the word "future" within their domain name, but are they really futurist type websites? It is recommended often by print publishers and editors that the word "future" is an excellent word to use within titles, as it grabs people's attention. But, when people utilize the word future and then don't give predictions or future accounts, then are they really deceiving the viewer and web-surfer. I believe they are.
Recently, an editor of the next of things type website asked me to create a column, but in reviewing the web site I found it to be underwhelming on the futuristic side, and more heavy into the scientific news arena. Indeed, if the magazine is intent on "The Future" then why are all the articles about new scientific innovations in the present period or happening right now? - asked myself.
It appears like they're intent on scientific discovery that's already happened, not what'll maintain the future. That's just boring, more science news, regurgitation, typical human tactic of re-packaging information. I think they can do better, but are holding themselves back, afraid to produce people think, worried you will get too much from your own mainstream, quote "core" number of viewers, which I believe they don't even understand.
Needless to say, being an entrepreneur, I know precisely why they do it this way. It is basically because they would like to make money and thus sink to a lower level of readership, while still pretending to speak about the future of stuff. Once the editor wished to guard such comments, the indication was that the site was mostly about scientific news.
Yes, I notice that the site is certainly caused by a news site and I ask what does which have related to the future of stuff? Shouldn't the web site be called NSIN.com or something like that; for New Science Innovation News? If the site is about Science News and is a collection of everyone else's news, then it is really a copy site of a category that is already used and not unique. Thus, this content is therefore exactly the same, so even though the articles are written more clearly and easier to know, which can be nice, still what's the value to a "science news junky" as you can find not many articles on the site compared making use of their competition?
When they called themselves a news site, then you might have "futurist type columnists" anyway, who might project these scientific news items into the near future or they might keep consitently the "Future Stuff" motif and promote the futurist columnists.
This would be a lesson to any or all "Futuristic" type websites as an incident study. For the near future thinkers to your website and have nothing to exhibit them, they will leave. If you utilize trickery to obtain regular readers there, you are doing a significant disservice to the future of mankind, by promoting present inventions while the be all end all. Either way, it is unethical to use this tactic on future of things type websites.
