  1. America to hand off Internet in under two months August 16, 2016 Rudy Takala image courtesy you tube "The Department of Commerce is set to hand off the final vestiges of American control over the Internet to international authorities in less than two months, officials have confirmed. The department will finalize the transition effective Oct. 1, Assistant Secretary Lawrence Strickling wrote on Tuesday, barring what he called "any significant impediment." The move means the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, which is responsible for interpreting numerical addresses on the Web to a readable language, will move from U.S. control to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a multistakeholder body based in Los Angeles that includes countries such as China and Russia. Critics of the move, most prominently Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, have pointed out the agency could be used by totalitarian governments to shut down the Web around the globe, either in whole or in part. "The proposal will significantly increase the power of foreign governments over the Internet, expand ICANN's historical core mission by creating a gateway to content regulation, and embolden [its] leadership to act without any real accountability," Cruz wrote in a letter sent to Commerce and signed by two fellow Republicans, Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. In the event any facilities are relocated to China, senators noted, they could go in the same building as the agency responsible for censoring that country's Internet. "We have uncovered that ICANN's Beijing office is actually located within the same building as the Cyberspace Administration of China, which is the central agency within the Chinese government's censorship regime," they wrote, noting that some of the American companies involved with the transition process have already "shown a willingness to acquiesce" to Chinese demands to aid with censorship." snip http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/america-to-hand-off-internet-in-under-two-months/article/2599521
  2. New Li-Fi Internet Is 100 Times Faster Than Wi-FiBen Taub November 24, 2015 photo credit: Li-Fi uses flickering LED lights to transmit data at extremely high speeds. Alphaspirit/Shutterstock "The inventor of the electric lightbulb could hardly have imagined that one day his creation would be used not only to illuminate homes around the world, but also to transmit data that would enable people to download information from satellites in space to small hand-held devices. However, with the introduction of Li-Fi, household lighting could soon double as a form of data transmission that’s up to 100 times faster than Wi-Fi. Li-Fi, which was first invented by Harold Haas of the University of Edinburgh in 2011, usesvisible light communication (VLC) to send data at extremely high speeds. Essentially, this works like an incredibly fast signal lamp, flashing on and off in order to relay messages in binary code (1s and 0s). In previous lab-based experiments, the technology was able to transmit up to 224 gigabits per second. To put this in perspective, Wi-Fi is capable of reaching speeds of around 600 megabits per second. The technology has now been deployed in real-life situations for the first time, thanks to the work of Estonian start-up Velmenni, which has begun trialling Li-Fi in offices and other industrial settings in Tallinn. In these environments, they were able to achieve connection speeds of around one gigabit per second. Aside from its superior speed, Li-Fi also boasts a number of other benefits over Wi-Fi. For instance, the fact that the signal is carried by optical light means that it cannot travel through walls, therefore enhancing the security of local networks. Obviously, this produces a number of limitations as well, since it suggests that connection will be lost if a user leaves the room, representing a major hurdle that must be overcome if the technology is to be successfully implemented. However, if this barrier can be surmounted, then the use of the visible spectrum could allow Li-Fi to send messages across a much wider range of frequencies thanWi-Fi, which operates between the frequencies of 2.4 gigahertz and 5 gigahertz. snip http://www.iflscience.com/technology/li-fi-internet-could-be-100-times-faster-wi-fi-0
  3. Privacy Is Not a Barrier to Trade June 4, 2015 By Margot E. Kaminski Sen.Elizabeth Warren tried to stop the Senate from approving "Fast Track" trade rules. Above, Warren speaks on May 12, 2015, in Washington. Photo illustration by Slate. Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images. "On Wednesday, WikiLeaks released the draft text of the biggest international agreement you’ve probably never heard of: the Trade in Services Agreement, or TISA. And buried in one of the 12 leaked chapters (which are mostly on things like “air transport services” and “competitive delivery services”) is a volatile and crucial debate about online privacy and the global Internet. Free trade agreements now regulate the Internet, determining digital policies across borders and around the world. TISA in particular addresses digital privacy, a critical issue at home and abroad. Yet the negotiations are not being held in a normal venue for discussing human rights or even ordinary law. TISA, like other trade agreements, is negotiated through a byzantine, readily corruptible process known as “fast track,” which Congress is about to renew. It is unacceptable for a professed democracy to address issues of this magnitude without meaningful public accountability. Trade agreements used to focus on things like tariffs, but they aren’t just about trade anymore. They consist of hundreds of chapters of detailed regulations, on subjects ranging from textiles to intellectual property law. TISA purports to promote fair and open global competition in services, thus increasing jobs. (You may have also heard about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, another trade agreement currently being negotiated and criticized. This one’s even more mammoth.) TISA is being negotiatedbetween 23 countries representing some 75 percent of the global services market. Buried in its e-commerce annex are rules that will reshape the relationship between the free flow of information and online privacy." snip http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2015/06/trade_in_services_agreement_could_change_the_global_internet.html
  4. FCC effort to regulate internet ignores history of past failures Feb. 24, 2015 Scott Wallsten Will the FCC repeat past mistakes of regulating telecommunications as utilities? Shutterstock "Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Tom Wheeler claims that his plan to regulate Internet Service Providers (ISPs) under Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act is “rooted in long-standing regulatory principles.” That’s not necessarily a good thing. While the specifics differ by industry, economics research over the past half century has consistently found Title II-style regulation to be inefficient, harmful to innovation and, therefore, costly to society. The FCC is expected to vote this week on Wheeler’s proposal. While the details of the plan won’t be released until after the vote (expected Thursday), FCC statements and press reports reveal its broad contours. Until now, ISPs have been classified as “information services” under Title I of the Act, keeping them largely unregulated. The new rules will classify ISPs as “telecommunications providers” under Title II and subject them to public utility-style, common carrier regulations. Under such rules, ISPs will probably not be allowed to enter into exclusive agreements or provide so-called “fast lanes” to content providers. In other words, it would make one version of net neutrality the law of the land. Even when established with the best of intentions, however, regulations do not necessarily work for the public good. Instead, they become the product of lobbying by interested parties ranging from companies to public interest groups to Congress and others over how to distribute profits. The interactions between the regulator and those parties inevitably lead to increasingly complex and politicized regulatory regimes. There’s no reason to believe it will be any different this time." snip https://theconversation.com/fcc-effort-to-regulate-internet-ignores-history-of-past-failures-37953 more stories FCC Chair Refuses to Testify before Congress ahead of Net Neutrality Vote http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/414380/fcc-chair-refuses-testify-congress-ahead-net-neutrality-vote-andrew-johnson Dear FCC: Rethink The Vague "General Conduct" Rulehttps://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/02/dear-fcc-rethink-those-vague-general-conduct-rul Republicans Fear Net Neutrality Plan Could Lead to UN Internet Powers http://www.nationaljournal.com/tech/the-future-of-broadband/republicans-fear-net-neutrality-plan-could-lead-to-un-internet-powers-20150225 FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai: Net Neutrality is a "Solution That Won't Work to a Problem That Doesn't Exist"http://reason.com/archives/2015/02/25/fccs-ajit-pai-on-net-neutrality-a-soluti/ Soros, Ford shovel $196 million to 'net neutrality' groups, staff to White Househttp://www.washingtonexaminer.com/soros-ford-shovel-196-million-to-net-neutrality-groups-staff-to-white-house/article/2560702 Net Neutrality: What You Need to Know Nowhttp://www.savetheinternet.com/net-neutrality-what-you-need-know-now Seems there are as many opinions as there are days in a year

  6. World on a string: Breakthrough fiberoptic cable 2,500X faster than fastest internet October 28, 2014 "Imagine downloading your favorite flick in 31 thousandths of a second. Such insane internet speeds are now a reality, with researchers rolling out a 255 terabits per second fiberoptic network which could transport the entire Internet on a single cable. The cable, the joint effort of Dutch and US scientists, is 2,550 times faster than the fastest single-fiber links in commercial operation today. In real terms, it could transfer a 1 GB movie in 0.03 milliseconds or the entire contents of your 1 terabit hard drive in about 31 milliseconds. At this speed, a single fiber optic cable could theoretically carry the all the data on the internet at peak times. But how does it work? Researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology and the University of Central Florida employed a well-known but still cost-prohibitive technology; multi-mode fiber." snip image from www.nature.com http://rt.com/news/200151-internet-speed-fiberoptic-cable/ Ultra-high-density spatial division multiplexing with a few-mode multicore fibre http://www.nature.com/nphoton/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nphoton.2014.243.html
  7. If the Internet Could Speak: 'I'm Melting! Melting!' "It's most likely going to get worse before it gets better. Internet infrastructure experts have known for years about the problems that would accompany its growth -- but not exactly which problem would strike when. "We'll likely have to see more outages or large cash penalties or government intervention before a problem like this gets fixed," suggested tech analyst Jim McGregor. Oh, what a world." snip http://www.technewsworld.com/story/80891.html Here’s why your Internet might have been slow on Tuesday August 13, 2014 Andrea Peterson "Some users were frustrated to find some of their favorite Web sites were unresponsive or otherwise inaccessible Tuesday. But it wasn't a data center outage or a squirrel chewing through a cable line causing the disruption. Instead, structural problems with one of the core technologies that keeps the Internet working were to blame, researchers say. You may not have heard of Border Gate Protocol (or BGP) routing, but you likely rely on it every day if you're online. While we often think of the Internet as one big network, it's really a collection of smaller, interconnected networks -- and BGP is how traffic finds its way from one part of the globe to another." snip http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/08/13/heres-why-your-internet-might-have-been-slow-on-tuesday/ BGP Routing Table Limitations Cause Global Service Interruption August 15, 2014 "(The Hosting News) – The cause of these disruptions is the constant growth in IPv4 address usage across the Internet and the resultant impact on network equipment’s BGP routing tables. IPv4 addresses are used to perform the vast majority of the routing on the global Internet and the significant increase in the number of connected devices has led to an increasing demand online presence. This has led ISPs and registrars to split IP address blocks and allocate much smaller ranges to each new customer due to the demand for resilience, meaning that the total number of IP addresses in active use has grown significantly. The core network routing technology called Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), stores a vast database of IPv4 addresses in order to build a routing table for Internet destinations. These tables are monitored globally by multiple groups, including Team Cymru and NANOG (team Cymru, 13/08/2014, http://www.team-cymru.org/). On Tuesday this week the number of IPv4 routes exceeded 512,000 for the first time. This number of 512k corresponds to factory default configuration limits in older equipment from some technology vendors, including Cisco, leading it to cease processing new routes or failing altogether." snip http://www.thehostingnews.com/bgp-routing-table-limitations-cause-global-service-interruption-32351.html This is information only and the links came to me via phillipbbg.
  8. Facebook conducted secret psychology experiment on users' emotions June 28, 2014 Harriet Alexander Facebook has conducted a secret massive psychology experiment on its users to find out how they respond to positive and negative messages - without telling participants "Over 600,000 Facebook users have taken part in a psychological experiment organised by the social media company, without their knowledge. Facebook altered the tone of the users' news feed to highlight either positive or negative posts from their friends, which were seen on their news feed. They then monitored the users' response, to see whether their friends' attitude had an impact on their own. "The results show emotional contagion," wrote a team of Facebook scientists, in a paper published by the PNAS journal - Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists of the United States. "When positive expressions were reduced, people produced fewer positive posts and more negative posts; when negative expressions were reduced, the opposite pattern occurred. These results indicate that emotions expressed by others on Facebook influence our own emotions, constituting experimental evidence for massive-scale contagion via social networks." snip http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/facebook/10932534/Facebook-conducted-secret-psychology-experiment-on-users-emotions.html So there you have it, conditioning users again.

  9. New computer program aims to teach itself everything about anything Michelle Ma June 12, 2014 "In today’s digitally driven world, access to information appears limitless. But when you have something specific in mind that you don’t know, like the name of that niche kitchen tool you saw at a friend’s house, it can be surprisingly hard to sift through the volume of information online and know how to search for it. Or, the opposite problem can occur – we can look up anything on the Internet, but how can we be sure we are finding everything about the topic without spending hours in front of the computer? Some of the many variations the new program has learned for three different concepts. Computer scientists from the University of Washington and the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Seattle have created the first fully automated computer program that teaches everything there is to know about any visual concept. Called Learning Everything about Anything, or LEVAN, the program searches millions of books and images on the Web to learn all possible variations of a concept, then displays the results to users as a comprehensive, browsable list of images, helping them explore and understand topics quickly in great detail. “It is all about discovering associations between textual and visual data,” said Ali Farhadi, a UW assistant professor of computer science and engineering. “The program learns to tightly couple rich sets of phrases with pixels in images. This means that it can recognize instances of specific concepts when it sees them.” The research team will present the project and a related paper this month at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition annual conference in Columbus, Ohio." snip LEVAN: Learning EVerything about ANything LEVAN Published June 11, 2014
