Forget fast lanes. The real threat for net-neutrality is zero-rated content

Forget fast lanes. The real threat for net-neutrality is zero-rated content | Media Psych | Scoop.it
When telcos zero-rate data used by their apps and their partners’ apps, they are engaging in price discrimination and threatening net neutrality. The practice should be banned in U.S. and Europe.

APR. 26, 2014 - 10:30 AM PDT 

The net-neutrality provisions adopted by the European Parliament earlier this monthruled that specialized services like “fast lanes” can’t be used by telcos to the detriment of the availability or quality of internet access services. On the other side of the Atlantic, Americans are less fortunate. The FCC said this week that it would propose new rules that allow companies like Disney, Google or Netflix to pay internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon for special, faster lanes to send video and other content to their customers.

 

This is the price the U.S. pays for delegating such crucial policy decisions to an unelected ex-lobbyist rather than delegating to Congress. Meanwhile, the open internet isn’t safe yet in Europe: The Council hasn’t spoken and the devil is in the details.

19th Century New York Was Covered in an Insane Web of Telephone Wires | Media Psych | Scoop.it
Alexander Graham Bell may have invented the telephone in 1875, but the first phone installation didn't come about for another three years. And that's what makes these photos from 1887 so incredible; this tangled mass of telephone wires had already wound itself around New York City's streets just seven years after that first installation.

Isaac:  "Ask any producing student in film school what they want to be and the answer will mostly like be “Creative Producer”. However, there is a new word in town that sounds much cooler: CREATIVE ENTREPRENEUR."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, May 14, 2014 5:49 AM

Steven is creating a solution by launching a new app that has potential to revolutionize the media industry.
