Possible U.N. telecommunications treaty? - 0 views

  •  
    (A little outdated, 2012) This is an interesting article about possible international telecommunication regulations; and how countries have been preparing for The World Conference on International Telecommunications for months "behind closed doors". Although the idea seems easy enough, I do not believe that all the involved nations could reach a single standard when it comes to rights of speech and censorship. Even more so, if a treaty was made how would this effect the laws and citizens of the individual countries who already have laws in place?

Google Doodles - 0 views

  •  
    Just thought I would add this page about controversial Google doodles! Its interesting which ones were viewed as controversial.
  •  
    Good one, Adam. I meant to ask Laura and forgot whether the doodles are always the same in every country, and this gallery shows that they aren't. Which makes a lot of sense. The Miró one is interesting, too -- the fact that the artist's heirs felt ripped off, even though it was original artwork in the *style* of Miró rather than anything actually copied from a digital version of Miró.

11 Essential Algorithms That Make The Internet Work - 0 views

  •  
    For the math-phobic out there, don't let the word scare you. An "algorithm" is nothing more than a set of instructions, just like a recipe or how-to book.And the Internet relies on many, many algorithms in order to function properly. When you type search terms into Google, it follows a very complex algorithm to determine which results to show you.
