According to John C. Abell 2012, “The Internet has sustained some pretty intense assaults in the past couple of years. There was the heavy-handed attempt to stamp out content piracy with SOPA/PIPA, the Federal Communications Commission’s Net neutrality ruling, which many saw as splitting the baby, and that whack job who claimed to own a patent on the World Wide Web.

It is again open season on the Internet in Dubai, where the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency ‑ whose mandate includes global communications ‑ is weighing proposals from many of its 193 member nations. Some of these proposals ‑ such as decentralizing the assignment of website names and eliminating Internet anonymity ‑ would make enormous changes to the organization and management of the Internet.

The ITU meeting, which began on Monday, runs through Dec. 14. Its agenda, and even the fact the proceedings are taking place at all, set off alarms among the Internet’s guardian angels.” Read more > http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/12/06/how-the-united-nations-could-ruin-the-internet/

According to Peter Lauria 2011, “There are few surer ways for an executive to lose a good reputation than to be CEO of Yahoo Inc. Just ask Carol Bartz or Terry Semel.

According to Ryan Singel 2010, “Facebook has long been a one-way valve. You put data in, so you can connect with friends, and then you can’t get it out and use it the way you would like to, even as the company is trying to corner the market on your identity. And Thursday night Google called out its rival on such data-portability hypocrisy: It banned the huge social network from allowing its users to connect their Gmail contacts to see who among them are also on Facebook to get the friending frenzy started.” Continued here > http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2010/11/google-facebook-data/ #socialmedia #datasharing #import #gmail #email #contacts @Epicenter @Wired @Google @Facebook @Jerrycallistejr
