Hey guys! Hope you all are having a great week. Today’s post is a little bit different to a usual post. In TH3 R3V0LUT10N’s first podcast guest speaker, Callum Walker Filgate. In this interview, Callum talks about his experience and thoughts on the industry. We are discussing a few topics that I have talked about in previous posts, so take a look if you haven’t already.
For all of the shortcomings of the Premier League discussed in the last blog, one major benefit of it’s growing influence online has been the formation of Fantasy Premier League.
Facebook, Twitter and Youtube have undoubtedly opened doors for Premier League clubs that just weren’t there in the past. Fan engagement, promotional activity and general club discussion have all shot up but is this for the better?
One of the main insufficiencies of the Premier League in it’s early years was that there was little way for fans engage with, discuss and bond over their clubs.
Since the turn of the century, the Premier League has become increasingly involved with the digital world.
Mobile phones are ubiquitous in today’s society. Smartphones, being a very new invention of humanity, became an inherent […]
Ok, so if you have followed me on here for a while you will know that I have been trying to find out more information about the Digital Impact on Dating from my perspective of an online dating skeptic.
Along the way I have found out some astonishing facts; whether that be about the growth of online dating, the data and algorithms that go on behind the scenes or how the meaning of dating has changed.
So what better way to reflect on these findings than thinking about the future of online dating? It has already been proven how society’s opinions can change when there was a large jump in the percentage of people who believed that online dating was an acceptable way of meeting someone, so how could things change again?
Why is Representation important?
Television shows have become part of our daily lives. This makes what these TV shows consist of quite important.
That’s why it’s only logical the world of television reflects the real world accurately. So, isn’t it shocking that women only take up 40% of speaking roles in television? Which really doesn’t make sense if you think about how there’s basically an equal amount of men and women in this world. It makes more sense when you find out 91% of TV shows across platforms employed no women directors. 76% had no women creators and 71% no female writers. It’s laughable in a kind of ‘laugh so you don’t cry’ kind of way. So it makes sense that when you don’t see yourself in any of the characters you see daily… You begin to feel insignificant.
Obviously, I’m only talking about humanoid characters, I’m not saying you’re going to have a mental breakdown if you don’t see yourself in a giant floating head from Rick and Morty.
There’s this body of research and a term known as ‘symbolic annihilation,’ which is the idea that if you don’t see people like you in the media you consume, you must somehow be unimportant

Hello! Hope everyone is having a great start to 2019!
As you might be able to tell from the length of this post, it’s a bit of a different one this week where we will be looking at online dating and the core facts surrounding it.
This week I wanted to focus on the many facts, both positive and negative, about online dating. I know I have already added some facts in my previous posts but there is a lot of new information that I have collated over the past few days about the digital impact on dating, so I thought it would be more interesting in a video (where I drag my two friends along to help out).
Technology means we’re constantly connected. As discussed in my previous post, technology is incredible for people that are […]
