How ISPs can sell your Web history—and how to stop them

How the Senate's vote to kill privacy rules affects you.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The Senate voted to sell all of privacy last week. Did you notice it over the Trump circus? Your internet provider can now let all your personal searches be sold unless you opt out. Kiss a GOP senator thank you for that. It was a gift to some of their biggest donors. Here you can learn more about how to protect your family and how they undid the will of 4 million that contacted the FCC to hold our privacy best under our own control. If the ISPs want to be ad agencies maybe they should not pretend to provide us often poorly delivered and over priced poor services as carriers and get into advertising full time. Google and search engines should also be held to higher privacy standards not allow our ISPs to lower theirs.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Notice also that EFF is expanding and hiring more citizen watchdogs to help keep all of us all over the globe aware of critical situations that threaten our voice, access to information and content, privacy and ownership of intellectual property. If you have the right skills and passion pease check out the openings and apply. It is too bad we can at this time not count on elected officials to give us a truthful account of what is really happening that matters and affects our daily lives. Only then we may stand with them to look out for our best interest with the commitment and understanding. Only those fully aware of situations can find best solutions.

The Resistance Must Be Digitized | Jose Torres & Malkia Cyril | FreePress.net | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

From the women’s marches that took place across the country and around the world to the mass protests against the Muslim ban and immigration raids, people are resisting the neo-fascist agenda President Trump is unleashing on our nation.

A primary reason why millions have been able to mobilize so quickly is because they have the ability to use the open internet to communicate to the masses and organize a resistance.

That’s why protecting the Net Neutrality rules that keep the internet open is more critical than ever. As authoritarianism rises, digital free speech can ensure our opposition to authoritarianism also rises.

But unfettered access to an open internet, and our ability to flex our digital muscles to advocate for the health and well being of our communities, could soon come to an end.

In January, Trump appointed Ajit Pai as the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. In so doing he found someone who shares his disdain for popular democracy, privacy rights, the truth and the poor. And it appears his disdain also extends to the press.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Please read this and become an activist for this cause even if you have never called a representative in your life or shared a serious activist posting ... If we lose this internet war after winning so many battles with millions of voices speaking out then our voices may be silenced on all the many different causes and interactions we need to address in all our communities and our global community ... Without the open internet and web the old model of pay to be heard will creep into the internet just like it has in every other media source in history. Try to get your personal events or community's matters addressed on prime tv or even your local paper and the company owners decide if the news will go out and your connections will be made. Join in winning this one for society and a better future!

The Fight Over Email Privacy Moves to the Senate

The Fight Over Email Privacy Moves to the Senate | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
The House passed the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 387) yesterday, bringing us one step closer to requiring a warrant before law enforcement can access private communications and documents stored online with companies such as Google, Facebook, and Dropbox. But the fight is just beginning. We’ve long called for pro-privacy reforms to the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the outdated law that provides little protection for “cloud” content stored by third-party service providers. H.R. 387 would codify the Sixth Circuit’s ruling in U.S. v.

The Death of WiFI Hotspots? | Doug Dawson | POTs and PANs

The Death of WiFI Hotspots? | Doug Dawson | POTs and PANs | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

I’ve been thinking about the new unlimited data plans and wondering what impact they will have on public WiFi. As I wrote in a recent blog, none of the plans from the major cellular carriers are truly unlimited. But they have enough data available that somebody who isn’t trying to use one of these plans for a home landline connection will now have a lot more data available than ever before.

The plans from the big four carriers have soft monthly download caps of 22 Gigabytes or higher, at which point they throttle to slower speeds. But 22 to 30 GB is a huge cap for anybody that’s been living with caps under 5 GB or sharing family plans at 10 GB. And to go along with these bigger caps, the cellular companies are also now offering zero-rated video that customers can watch without touching the data caps. That combination is going to let cellphone users use a mountain of data during a month.

So I wonder how many people who buy these plans will bother to log onto WiFi in coffee shops, airports and hotels any longer?

Why the "last mile problem" is a national problem | Fred Pilot | EldoTelecom.com

Why the "last mile problem" is a national problem | Fred Pilot | EldoTelecom.com | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

In the United States, telecommunications infrastructure deficiencies tend to be defined as a local or "last mile" problem. Residents of homes, businesses and government buildings have orders for services refused by providers because no infrastructure exists to deliver them. Or the cost of service is exorbitant, offering very poor value.

Since the problem typically manifests in a specific neighborhood or at a particular address, it's naturally seen as local problem. Particularly when premises just down the road, around the block or elsewhere in the neighborhood are offered service, a broader selection of services or service at considerably higher value.

Then, I’m going to give you a surefire formula for not wasting your time when you write articles — a powerful method that will make your articles rank on top.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 17, 10:19 AM
In summary, there is no law that says your content must be a certain length in order to rank higher. A lot of content marketers spend a plenty of time creating content. And that’s good! But is length the only thing we should be targeting when we create this content? No. The data suggests that your content needs to have three characteristics: The content should be deep. The content should have comprehensive coverage. The content should be focused on the topic (keyword) you want to rank for. When you create content with those three characteristics, you might find yourself writing a 4,000-word article. Or it might be 1,000. Either way, it’s going to be good.

The Internet as Weapon

The Internet as Weapon | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
One of the most striking and enduring dichotomies in the conceptualization of electronic communication networks is summed up in the phrase "the Internet as weapon." With each passing day, it seems that the strident divergence plays in the press -- the latest being Tim's lament about his "web" vision being somehow perverted. The irony is that the three challenges he identified would have been better met if he had instead pursued a career at the Little Theatre of Geneva and let SGML proceed to be implemented on OSI internets rather than refactoring it as HTML to run on DARPA internets.
