It is important to know the laws when it comes to social media and the internet as it is still relatively new and so we need to be informed about what we can and can't do. It is also important to know these things as most people have not realised the implications of online plagarism and insults towards others.

Why New Fiber Networks Are Required To Shatter Monopolies Of Comcast & Other ISPs | The Consumerist.com

Why New Fiber Networks Are Required To Shatter Monopolies Of Comcast & Other ISPs | The Consumerist.com | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it

It’s one thing if a company earns a dominant market share in a region because consumers have voted with their wallets and decided that Company X is the best around and it’s the only one they want. It’s another when, in the case of the cable industry, that monopoly isn’t earned, but is instead the result of outdated regulations that force a certain company on consumers based on ZIP code. The introduction of higher-speed fiber-optic networks like Google Fiber and AT&T’s new experiment in Austin may shatter the concrete feet of a cable colossus like Comcast.

 

In a really good piece for the Washington Post, Timothy Lee demonstrates how he believes Comcast is reining in access to faster Internet download speeds in order to cash in on customers with few other options.

 

He points out that while Comcast has increased the speed of its most popular broadband offering, the “Performance” tier, from 3Mbps to 20Mbps over the last 10 years, the company is now able to deliver speeds of up to 105Mbps without the customer having to upgrade her in-home equipment. But in order to reach that level of speed, you would need to pay around $115 per month, more than double what most people pay for the Performance tier.

 

Lee explains:

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder: Nassim Nicholas Taleb: 9781400067824: Amazon.com: Books

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

~ Nassim Nicholas Taleb (author) More about this product
List Price: $30.00
Price: $20.39
You Save: $9.61 (32%)

"In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better. 
 
Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear.
 
Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world."

The Future of Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing promises to revolutionize the way we build things. Using new technologies like 3D printing and laser melting, traditional manufacturing processes, like forging, casting and machining, are being turned upside down.

 

With additive manufacturing complexity is free. We can now make lighter-weight, geometrically-optimized, metal parts that offer the same functionality as their traditionally machined counterparts, with little to no material waste
