Internet

An internet group about The Internet.

The internet is both a telecommunication medium and a culture. We have embraced it because of its immediacy, its pervasiveness and its usefulness.

Even though for most of us its workings is equivalent to magic and it's enough to know that it's very 'complicated and technical,' it has become an intricate part of our life.

Let's talk about this.

The Internet

This is a partial portrait of the Internet. Imagine that at the tip of each branch there is one or multiple human brains operating and that each one of these terminals can be instantly connected to any other, anywhere.

If we could map this image to the surface of the Earth it would make it even more obvious that this network of networks is like a new organ that has been grafted onto the biosphere.

Partial map of the Internet based on the January 15, 2005 data found on opte.org. Each line is drawn between two nodes, representing two IP addresses. The length of the lines are indicative of the delay between those two nodes. This graph represents less than 30% of the Class C networks reachable by the data collection program in early 2005. Lines are color-coded according to their corresponding RFC 1918 allocation as follows:

Dark blue: net, ca, us
Green: com, org
Red: mil, gov, edu
Yellow: jp, cn, tw, au, de

Libraries, Electricity,  telephones, the Internet, TV, Radio, Mail (postal service)  seems to me should be a public resource as should education facilities as opposed to private entities.

Having written that if these were public instutions then the public would be able to influence the institutions as opposed to private (for profit) institutions.

Doone,

Wrong. Your links are nonsense.

Stephen,

As you may know to promote infrustructure  takes individuals support.

It upsets me that some don't know know much about economonimic therory.

My thoughts are that the Internet, wires connecting it should be considered a Public Utility.

It should be well known that the Internet, and the internet was developed as a public agengy. 

Pre Mosaic-- IP.

The same with the electrical grid.

Chris I'm constantly surprised that California of all places is as slow as it appears to be. I've noticed that most of your phone lines are overhead and not buried underground and I read somewhere that overhead cables are hard to convert to fibre optics. You can understand it in the more rural areas but from what ive seen even in your cities they are laid out above ground

Hello Stephen,

Laid above and below ground - or even on tower cells.

Donno if you have a cell phone - most people I know who use cell phones have terrible connections.

Above ground fiber was recently ran to the pole infront of my house.

Don't understand - thought do understand why the road was repaved without  doing it to make it more safe  and effieient - even thought the cost may have been higher at the beginning.

Frustrating.

That's another subject though.

Tulsi Gabbard, Democratic Presidential Candidate, Sues Google for $...

In her lawsuit, Tulsi Gabbard asserts that Google muffled her free speech rights when it briefly suspended her ad account after the Democratic debate in June.CreditCreditDoug Mills/The New York Times.

  • July 25, 2019

Representative Tulsi Gabbard, the long-shot presidential candidate from Hawaii, said in a federal lawsuit that Google infringed on her free speech when it briefly suspended her campaign’s advertising account after the first Democratic debate in June.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday in a federal court in Los Angeles, is believed to be the first time a presidential candidate has sued a major technology firm.

In a twist that reflects Ms. Gabbard’s unorthodox political views, the claim that her speech was stifled by Google is similar to complaints made over the last year in Republican circles. Few Democrats have raised similar concerns.

Big tech companies like Google are getting increasing scrutiny by lawmakers and regulators around the world for a wide variety of issues, including their influence on political debate, their handling of consumer data, and the aggressive way they compete with smaller companies.

A day before the Gabbard lawsuit was filed, Facebook said the Federal Trade Commission had opened a formal antitrust investigation into its business practices. Earlier in the day, the F.T.C. announced that Facebook was fined a record $5 billion for deceiving users about their ability to control the privacy of their personal data.

Tulsi Now Inc., the campaign committee for Ms. Gabbard, said Google suspended the campaign’s advertising account for six hours on June 27 and June 28, obstructing its ability to raise money and spread her message to potential voters.

After the first Democratic debate, Ms. Gabbard was briefly the most searched-for candidate on Google. Her campaign wanted to capitalize on the attention she was receiving by buying ads that would have placed its website at the top of search results for her name.

Aaron Swatz full movie.  Maybe it should be in the Doccumentaries group, the medical group, or a political group.

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard sues Google over suspension of ad account

The lawsuit adds to a chorus of bipartisan complaints against Google over the power it has accumulated.

Google spokeswoman Riva Sciuto said that an automated system triggered the suspension.

“We have automated systems that flag unusual activity on all advertiser accounts — including large spending changes — in order to prevent fraud and protect our customers,” Sciuto said in a statement.

“In this case, our system triggered a suspension and the account was reinstated shortly thereafter. We are proud to offer ad products that help campaigns connect directly with voters, and we do so without bias toward any party or political ideology.”

The company has the largest share of the worldwide digital ad market, with 31 percent of all digital ad revenue, according to research firm eMarketer. Google’s grip on ads related to searches is even tighter, with 61 percent of the market worldwide.

Democratic and Republican politicians have shown growing frustration with the power of social media companies and Silicon Valley generally. In 2017, Twitter blocked an abortion-related video ad from Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., before reversing itself and allowing it.

I'll check in with Ning to see if somehow a message through that network would provide an IP address.

Sorry for being grouchy.   I wanted help from the administrators figuring this out - rather than being 'outcast.'

I shouldn't have posted the previous.

Working with Apple find it's interesting how little the technitian knew about time and the calender portion of the system.

None of that compost matters though.
