Symbolizing the Battle for Free Press

Symbolizing the Battle for Free Press | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Despite the opportunities afforded by online platforms, there is evidence that freedom of expression and particularly freedom of the press has not been improving across the globe, and that often this is a reflection of state policies. Reporters Without Borders said its most recent World Press Freedom Index is a “reflection of the attitudes and intentions of governments towards media freedom in the medium or long term”.

The Internet Association Comments on FCC Net Neutrality Proposal

1. Internet Users Should Get What They Want, When They Want It

2. Internet Users Should Get What They Pay For

3. All Networks Should Have Equal Protection


The Internet Association, represents the interests of the leading Internet companies including Airbnb, Amazon, AOL, Auction.com, eBay, Expedia, Facebook, Gilt, Google, IAC, LinkedIn, Lyft, Monster Worldwide, Netflix, Practice Fusion, Rackspace, reddit, Salesforce.com, SurveyMonkey, TripAdvisor, Twitter, Uber Technologies, Inc., Yelp, Yahoo!, and Zynga. 

Manuel Pinto's insight:

Vimeo:

"Without rules requiring net neutrality, broadband providers could make innovations like these prohibitively expensive by charging arbitrary tolls for Internet “fast” lanes and making the "regular" traffic lanes slow and unusable.

Furthermore, if broadband companies could do whatever they please, they will favor their own content over everyone else’s. That means independent content you see on Vimeo might not load as fast as, say, a Hollywood summer blockbuster from a cable company’s on-demand service. We know that even short delays in video performance can have a big effect on what people watch. We think that audiences should be able to watch whatever they want without discrimination by broadband providers."

Robots Are Invading the News Business, and "It’s Great for Journalists"

Robots Are Invading the News Business, and "It’s Great for Journalists" | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

«Earlier this week, one of my business-beat colleagues got assigned to recap the quarterly earnings of Alcoa, the giant metals company, for the Associated Press. The reporter’s story began: “Alcoa Inc. (AA) on Tuesday reported a second-quarter profit of $138 million, reversing a year-ago loss, and the results beat analysts' expectation. The company reported strong results in its engineered-products business, which makes parts for industrial customers, while looking to cut costs in its aluminum-smelting segment.”

It may not have been the most artful start to a story, but it got the point across, with just enough background information for a casual reader to make sense of it. Not bad. The most impressive part, though, was how long the story took to produce: less than a second.

The Latest Snowden Leak Is Devastating to NSA Defenders

The Latest Snowden Leak Is Devastating to NSA Defenders | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
The agency collected and stored intimate chats, photos, and emails belonging to innocent Americans—and secured them so poorly that reporters can now browse them at will.

 

"The Washington Post's latest articledrawing on Snowden's leaked cache of documents includes files "described as useless by the analysts but nonetheless retained" that "tell stories of love and heartbreak, illicit sexual liaisons, mental-health crises, political and religious conversions, financial anxieties and disappointed hopes. The daily lives of more than 10,000 account holders who were not targeted are catalogued and recorded nevertheless."

Reflections of a Newsosaur: The newspaper crisis, by the numbers | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Roughly a decade after the commercial debut of the Internet, America’s newspapers posted record high advertising sales of $49.4 billion in 2005, leading many publishers to think their businesses would not be seriously affected by the digital revolution. But they were wrong.  

Since hitting that high note in 2005, the industry has undergone a dramatic and traumatic contraction, losing nearly half of its print readership and more than a third of its revenues."

Pero casi sin tiempo para que se consolide esta tendencia, los medios tendrán que lidiar con nuevos productos: los dispositivos ponibles."
