Pew: No more privacy on the Internet | WashingtonExaminer.com

Pew: No more privacy on the Internet | WashingtonExaminer.com | digital divide information | Scoop.it
A remarkable and sobering new analysis of Internet privacy being released Thursday finds that a majority of the world’s cyber experts believe that keeping secrets on the Web will be “a luxury,” and that the public will eventually accept it as the “new default.”
In a massive survey of 2,511 of the world’s top tech experts, the Pew Research Center found that 55 percent believe that efforts by governments or industry to build a secure privacy infrastructure by 2025 will fail, while 45 percent believe some type of system will be in place.
“George Orwell may have been an optimist,” Vytautas Butrimas, a cyber adviser in the Baltic states, told Pew.
The study, the first of its kind, strongly suggests that the type of hack-attacks crushing Sony Pictures could become a daily occurrence and the public and industry will either boost their own security systems or simply give in to the new reality.

Visualizing Urban Change

Visualizing Urban Change | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"60 years has made a big difference in the urban form of American cities. The most rapid change occurred during the mid-century urban renewal period that cleared large tracts of urban land for new highways, parking, and public facilities or housing projects. Fine-grained networks of streets and buildings on small lots were replaced with superblocks and megastructures. While the period did make way for impressive new projects in many cities, many of the scars are still unhealed.  We put together these sliders to show how cities have changed over half a century. In this post, we look at Midwestern cities such as [pictured above] Cincinnati, Ohio."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 17, 11:33 AM

It's ironic that I feel more accustomed to exploring Cincinnati, OH on foot than I do Providence, RI.  Although I drive in downtown Providence regularly, I seldom have a reason to walk and explore it.  In my yearly visits to Cincinnati to score the AP Human Geography exams, I'm outside my hometown and away from my typical routine. That helps me feel more like a flâneur, to stroll the streets and explore the urban landscape.  This set of 7 before and after images shows Midwestern cities (Cincinnati, Detroit, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Columbus) lets you digitally analyze the last 70 years of urban morphology.  Click here for a gallery 7 of cities in Texas and Oklahoma


Questions to Ponder: What are the biggest changes you see for the 1950 to today?  How are the land uses difference?  Has the density changed?  Do any of urban models help us understand these cities?
