Reset the Net to Shut Off NSA Spying | PopularResistance.Org, June 5th - 1 views

    "Everyone has a role to play.

    If you're a developer, promise to add one new surveillance-resistant feature to your app or website, and announce it on June 5th.

    If you're an Internet user, promise to try out one new privacy tool that directly confronts mass surveillance. We'll have an epic and definitive list for you to choose from. Then tell your friends to get protected too.

    If you have a website or Tumblr, get the Internet Defense League code installed and display the Reset the Net message on June 5th to help educate and rally Internet users worldwide to defend themselves from dragnet surveillance."

    Paris, 14 March 2014 - On Tuesday, 18 March at 10 a.m., the "Industry" (ITRE) committee of the European Parliament will take a crucial decision for the future of Net Neutrality in Europe. The adoption of the report could mark a point of no return. Two conflicting visions for the future of the Internet oppose the two largest political groups in the EU Parliament, the social democratic party (S&D) and the conservative party (EPP). The outcome of the vote might be decided by the MEPs of the liberal group (ALDE) who appear not to have chosen which vision they will support, although their rapporteur, Jens Rohde, is pushing for the adoption of anti-Net Neutrality provisions. If adopted, these provisions would end the Internet as we know it, harming the freedom of communication and innovation."

    "Natalia Radzina of Charter97, a Belarusian news website whose criticism of the government is often censored, was attending an OSCE-organized conference in Vienna on the Internet and media freedom in February 2013 when she ran into someone she would rather not have seen: a member of the Operations and Analysis Centre, a Belarusian government unit that coordinates Internet surveillance and censorship. It is entities like this, little known but often at the heart of surveillance and censorship systems in many countries, that Reporters Without Borders is spotlighting in this year's Enemies of the Internet report, which it is releasing, as usual, on World Day Against Cyber-Censorship (12 March)."

Llamamiento: ¡difundamos XMPP! | Comunícate libremente - 0 views

    "La comunicación en Internet no va por el camino adecuado. Por épocas parece que hay una tecnología o una marca que manda, la que usa todo el mundo. Y claro, la tecnología sirve para comunicarse, es totalmente normal usar lo que usa todo el mundo.

    El problema está en que esa marca, ese programa que usas, depende de una sola empresa, que podrá hacer con él lo que quiera. Y tú no podrás reclamar. Posiblemente con el tiempo salga otro, y cambies.

    ¿Por qué debemos dejar que siga ocurriendo lo mismo? Antiguamente AIM y MSN Messenger, ahora Facebook Chat, WhatsApp y parecidos (Line, WeChat, MessageMe y tantísimos otros) tienen algo en común: los usuarios de uno no pueden hablar con los usuarios del otro. Con XMPP se puede."

New York company says it can beam free OUTERNET Wi-fi to every person on Earth | Mail O... - 0 views

    • An ambitious project known as Outernet is aiming to launch hundreds of miniature satellites into low Earth orbit by June 2015
    • Each satellite will broadcast the Internet to phones and computers giving billions of people across the globe free online access
    • Citizens of countries like China and North Korea that have censored online activity could be given free and unrestricted cyberspace
    • 'There's really nothing that is technically impossible to this'
  • You might think you have to pay through the nose at the moment to access the Internet.

    But one ambitious organisation called the Media Development Investment Fund (MDIF) is planning to turn the age of online computing on its head by giving free web access to every person on Earth.

    Known as Outernet, MDIF plans to launch hundreds of satellites into orbit by 2015.

    And they say the project could provide unrestricted Internet access to countries where their web access is censored, including China and North Korea.

  • Using something known as datacasting technology, which involves sending data over wide radio waves, the New York-based company says they'll be able to broadcast the Internet around the world.

    The group is hoping to raise tens of millions of dollars in donations to get the project on the road.

  • The company's plan is to launch hundreds of low-cost miniature satellites, known as cubesats, into low Earth orbit.

    Here, each satellite will receive data from a network of ground stations across the globe.


    By June of this year the Outernet project aims to begin deploying prototype satellites to test their technology

    In September 2014 they will make a request to NASA to test their technology on the International Space Station

    By early 2015 they intend to begin manufacturing and launching their satellites

    And in June 2015 the company says they will begin broadcasting the Outernet from space

Comcast's deal with Netflix makes network neutrality obsolete - 0 views

    "For the past two decades, the Internet has operated as an unregulated, competitive free market. Given the tendency of networked industries to lapse into monopoly-think of AT&T's 70-year hold over telephone service, for example-that's a minor miracle. But recent developments are putting the Internet's decentralized architecture in danger."
