The Meeting

Now, the concept of identity implies the encounter with other identities. We can look to the identity as a collective creation that already can not be based on the cult of their own roots and traditions, but also in the meeting with other localities, regions, continents and groups. Already the so-called terms of domination not may arise at the North-South poles, but in what is called inclusion networks. There is not an undifferentiated global culture, although we must of course take into account the emergence of so-called cosmopolitan values transmitted by these networks of inclusion, which will later lead us to the problem of communication. At the cultural level, we can speak of identities as a brake to a communicational uncontrolled globalization. In any case, the problem from this angle, would be, is, in the impossibility, which many still exists, communicate an identity. And beyond, in solitary confinement between identities.

Identity in this new world is understood on the basis of the obvious effects, as the rift between time and space, the deterritorialization of cultural production, the strengthening of local identities and hybridization. Already in a previous book pointed out that the day and the night weren’t more equivalent to the outlet and the sunset. We are in a new concept of time and it is precisely this concept which allows us to be at the same time local and global. We live in the world of instantaneity. In case outside little, we have to consider the growth of migration, that is, multiple cultures are played away from their points of origin. On the other hand, what we might call transnational identities linked to groups in a more intense than any other relationship, say young people here and there or to women in their struggles against the discrimination that persist. Migration and culture human migration there have always been, but in this global world is taken with special interest.


Therefore, at standard resolution 96 pixels per inch, mind you – three times smaller than the paper, we see a different picture. If you have read about Sony already – you may have come to the same conclusion. Convincing? Not quite. Many argue – why use a photo size of 800×600 pixels? Now it is difficult to meet tsifromylnitsu with the matrix is less than five megapixels, and it is already ten times more resolution! Even the camera mobiles today give a picture with a resolution several times better than 800×600 pixels. Undoubtedly! However, no doubt, and that is not always and not all amateur photos can be printed on quality card, 10×15 and screen them can be viewed with great pleasure. Yet there is no doubt that global network is filled with beautiful photographs of the format is close to 800×600, and share these images much easier and more convenient than the “heavy” full-size photos.

Can result in long arguments for and against, but the obvious first conclusion – picture on the screen (active form) has a distinct visual advantage over the photo to the paper and that’s a plus. The second plus that the digital photo frame has its own memory – a photo album, which can be stored and viewed, for example, in slideshow mode, tens, hundreds or even thousands of images. Another plus – mobility and relative compactness, compared with a computer or even laptop. And, of course, additional features – most of these devices can not only display pictures but also play music or videos of different formats. There are, of course, downsides. For example, you need to take the trouble to learn how to communicate with the device, which, incidentally, is no more difficult to communicate with the camera. Then you need to “upload” in the frame your photos and choose a view mode.

Then, of course, have to think about the musical accompaniment, finally decide – enjoy watching it alone or invite your friends to have fun with all my heart. Yes, quite forgotten, you must first select another suitable model of the digital photo frame. Zadachka not easy, but in doing so, we’ll help you.
