ABOUT ME – HAKKIMDA

Welcome to my website!

This website, in the vast world of internet, is a little place of mine in which I freely share my ideas on various topics that I find interesting and worth sharing. At the moment, topics are not focused; they range from photography to free sources of internet. However, it is a reflection of my own background, so it makes sense in itself. I’ve studied philosophy at Boğaziçi University and did my master in Sociology. Meanwhile, I followed my interest in media arts and worked as a freelancer in media production including directing and taking photos for various occasions. I am mostly active on Instagram so you can catch up with me there. I walk around the streets of Istanbul, visit museums, take photos and share them.

There are lots to write on this website; important notes on the books I read, the historical background of the places I visit, inspirational works of artists, truly great sources on the internet that you can utilize from etc. I hope to create time for all of it. Meanwhile, feel free to share your thoughts, criticisms or suggestions under the articles I post..

Felsefe Mezunları Ne İş Yapar?

Felsefe Mezunları Ne İş Yapar?

Zihnimizde canlandırdığımız haliyle filozof olmak en hoş kariyer seçeneklerinden biri olsa gerek; büyük düşünürleri okumak, derin düşüncelere dalmak, kitaplarla çevrili güzel bir ofiste geçireceğiniz günler, hoş bir masa lambası, sıcak bir fincan kahve, ve belki de yanı başınızda hırlayan bir kedi. Fikirlerinizden çığır açacak bir devrim neşv-ü nema bulabilir, gelecek kuşaklara ilham kapılarını açabilirsiniz.

Akademide felsefeyle uğraşmak ise bu idealize edilmiş tablodan biraz daha farklı; muhtemelen ailenizden ve arkadaşlarınızdan uzakta bir kampüstesiniz, baş ağrıtan bölüm politikaları ile uğraşırken makale yayınlayabilmek için de devamlı çalışıyorsunuz. Peki felsefe mezunuysanız ve akademide ilerlemek size göre değilse hangi sektöre yönelirdiniz?

One of the unique characteristics of Kenan Özten’s signature kanuns is that every piece is made by him and his apprentice Zafer Kibar. 

November 02, 2008, Sunday/ Published at Today’s Daily News

The kanun, an oriental zither, is a music instrument unique to Turkish music and is painstakingly difficult to manufacture as it requires long labor and great expertise, says a veteran kanun-maker. Kenan Özten, one of the finest kanun-makers alive, explained to Sunday’s Zaman that “while the kanun has been a traditional musical instrument in Turkey, we have started to see a great interest lately especially among our youth.”What makes the kanun unique, he said, is the instrument is strung with nylon strings in contrast to a similar instrument that is played in the Alpine countries. Interestingly the bridge does not stand on a wooden soundboard but on a parchment (drum skin), similar to the banjo. This results in a characteristic tone.

Defne Data secures contract in Kuwait

September 15, 2008, Monday/Published at Today’s Daily News

Defne Data Processing, a solutions provider for telecom operators in many countries, including Turkey, has signed a new project with Media Phone Plus, Kuwait’s leading mobile entertainment services company. The project, called “Value-Added Service Platform,” which is planned to be an entertainment service for landline and mobile networks, will be put into operation in many Middle East countries in addition to Kuwait beginning in October 2008. Competitions, polls and chat rooms are some of the planned services.

Defne Data Processing General Manager Oğuz Haliloğlu said: “Entertainment services are in high demand from consumers, and they increase revenue for mobile operators. … As such, the diversification of services plays an important role in promoting brand names and contributes greatly to operator revenues.”

Defne has planned various projects in more than 15 countries in addition to Turkey. “Since the competition is getting very fierce among operators, value-added services provide an edge for mobile operators,” Haliloğlu said.  According to Haliloğlu, the importance of value-added services will increase much more when third-generation networks and virtual operators take a place in our lives. He says, “Video feed call center services, mobile TV and interactive commercials are among the value-added services that will be available with the third-generation networks.”
