Over the last few years Media Underground has slipped into what can only be described as a very unfortunate state of lethargy. The rise of social network sites - where no-one sees the internet as anything other than Facebook or Twitter - has in many ways contributed towards this feeling of pissing into the wind, as the population's attention span for anything other than a few lines of banal text is largely non-existent.
Fortunately, we don't give up easily, and to celebrate the site's 11th birthday we have returned to the fold with a small team of dedicated contributors with a willingness to stick it to 'the man' with more emphasis placed on social commentary and vitriolic opinion.
You will not find us on Facebook. You will not find us on Twitter. You will not find us on MySpace, Bebo, Google+, Pinterest, Reddit, or any other fleeting corporate run fad that offers you meaningless social interaction in exchange for personal information that is being used for the purposes of personalised advertising at best, and social profiling at worst.
You will only find us in the underground where we retain our initial promise of never advertising anything and only promoting the things we like and find of interest.
It is our plan to add to our team of contributors over the coming months - if you have what it takes and like what we do then please feel free to submit an example of your writing and we may get you on board.
