U.S.A. Used Drones To Monitor US Citizens

U.S.A. Used Drones To Monitor US Citizens | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

How do you feel about the USA using drones to monitor US citizens?  I don't agree with Brossart, but I am concerned that this has not been a bigger news story in the news.  I am aware that I may be a bit out of the loop over here in South Korea, but I would expect this to be a bigger news story.  This episode of On The Media is full of great insight including extreme measures to protect Olympic sponsorships, Syrian rebels appealing to donors through videos online, and a self proclaimed media manipulator tells all.

 

For a quick link to the Drones story, scroll down one the "On The Media" link and click:

Google Says Forced “Sharing” Is a Bug, Not a Feature

Google Says Forced “Sharing” Is a Bug, Not a Feature | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I am very sad to see that Google is following Facebook's poor decisions regarding this topic of forced sharing of free content that we read online.

Don't be evil Google.  Don't be evil!

5 Facebook Privacy Settings You Should Know

5 Facebook Privacy Settings You Should Know | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Every time we share info about ourselves across various networks, it is revealed to everyone even though it is meant only for a select few. As a result, people or organizations outside our network could easily exploit such info about us even without us knowing. Must users be willing to pit having a healthy online social presence against a firm hold of their privacy?

Disgusting move by UN to control the global internet

Disgusting move by UN to control the global internet | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

"Disgusting!"  Don't let this happen.  About a year ago, the experts in our field were telling us that we don't really have to worry about SOPA, etc. but that we should be aware that some US 'leaders' were bold enough to consider it.  Seven months later, it almost passed.  We need to be alert to this UN move.

Consumer Watchdog Praises State Attorneys General Action Against Google  | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I wasn't able to give it my full attention, but I just heard Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler on CNN International's Quest Means business talking about why he thinks Google is Evil.  He might be right, but he sure didn't present his case well.  It is clear that for him, it is about government control.

 

I will wait for the posted transcripts here before making a true decision, but I wasn't impressed (edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/qmb.html)
