"How we sold our souls – and more – to the internet giants" | Bruce SCHNEIER | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
From TVs that listen in on us to a doll that records your child’s questions, data collection has become both dangerously intrusive and highly profitable. Is it time for governments to act to curb online surveillance?
Monica MIRZA's insight:

"Most internet surveillance data is inherently anonymous, but companies are increasingly able to correlate the information gathered with other information that positively identifies us.[...]"

Raw intelligence collected from 9 U.S. providers | The Washington Post

Raw intelligence collected from 9 U.S. providers | The Washington Post | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
Through a Top-Secret program authorized by federal judges working under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the U.S. intelligence community can gain access to the servers of nine internet companies for a wide range of digital data.

"[...] The program is called PRISM, after the prisms used to split light, which is used to carry information on fiber-optic cables. [...] The program is the number one source of raw intelligence used for NSA analytic reports."

Monica MIRZA's insight:

The Washington Post explains that "Equally unusual is the way the NSA extracts what it wants, according to the document: “Collection directly from the servers of these U.S. Service Providers: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple.”

Daniel Morgenstern's curator insight, May 27, 2013 5:07 PM

Pour un professeur de Technologie, il est bon de pouvoir répondre à quelques questions pointues sur la naissance d'internet ou sur la personne qui a inventé le e-mail ou Skype. Vous allez pouvoir parcourir les allées du Big Internet Museum via un simple clic sur une flèche ou en faisant glisser un curseur sur une frise chronologique. C'est en anglais (bien evidemment)

Daniel Morgenstern's comment, June 3, 2013 12:05 PM
Merci Monica pour cet encouragement ! Remarque : la "caisse à savon" customisée par Porsche est une représentation assez proche de l'idée que je me fais de la Technologie :-)

Ensuring an Open Internet | The White House | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"[...] Governmental proposals to replace the Internet’s decentralized and open system must be resisted. Centralized control over the Internet through a top-down government approach would put political dealmakers, rather than innovators and experts, in charge of the future of the Internet. This would slow the pace of innovation, hamper global economic development, and lead to an era of unprecedented control over what people can say and do online. [...]"

Numérique : le retour de bâton | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"les algorithmes [...] non seulement digèrent et traitent des milliards de données, mais sont désormais capables d’apprendre (« machine learning »), d’anticiper et de remplacer de plus en plus de fonctions humaines pour un coût très réduit."

"En gros, jusqu’ici, les ordinateurs calculaient, aujourd’hui ils apprennent, demain ils feront. [...] Nous avons créé des technologies qui vont être bien plus intelligentes que nous le pensons."

Comment garder la main sur les retombées de ces avancées en plaçant l'intérêt humain au dessus de l'intérêt économique -qui globalement dicte ces avancées ?

"Edward Snowden's not the story. The fate of the internet is" | The Guardian - ICT

"Edward Snowden's not the story. The fate of the internet is" | The Guardian - ICT | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"[...] They [Snowden's revelations] tell us, for example, that no US-based internet company can be trusted to protect our privacy or data. The fact is that Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft are all integral components of the US cyber-surveillance system. Nothing, but nothing, that is stored in their "cloud" services can be guaranteed to be safe from surveillance or from illicit downloading by employees of the consultancies employed by the NSA. That means that if you're thinking of outsourcing your troublesome IT operations to, say, Google or Microsoft, then think again. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

The article highlights a critical issue : Snowden's being focused on by the media -he well deserves it !-...  yet, we'd better delve further into the internet's future to check how it is managed on our behalf...

Il y a 20 ans, le CERN libérait le Web | ZDNet

Il y a 20 ans, le CERN libérait le Web | ZDNet | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"Le 30 avril 1993, le CERN offrait au domaine public la technologie world wide web et les applications permettant de développer des sites Web. Et mettait en ligne le premier site en www.

Le Web, tel qu'on le connaît aujourd'hui, ne serait certainement pas le même sans cette décision fondamentale du CERN, l'Organisation européenne pour la Recherche nucléaire.[...]

Libre, ouvert et décentralisé

Par cette action dénuée de toute ambition commerciale (pas de licence, pas de propriété intellectuelle), le CERN posait en fait la première pierre du Web libre, décentralisé et ouvert à tous, tel qu'il est encore aujourd'hui, où chacun peut simplement mettre en ligne un site et se connecter au monde entier.
