Internet Governance Back in the Limelight | CircleD.com

Internet Governance Back in the Limelight | CircleD.com | Technology | Scoop.it

In my special role as adviser to the UN Broadband Commission I reported extensively in 2013 on the WCIT-12 conference in Dubai.

 

Unfortunately the world disagreed on a way forward in relation to internet governance. However, despite all the grandstanding of the USA and its western allies, simply ignoring it and saying "there is no room for governments to be involved in internet governance" — will not make the issue go away.

 

Idealistically, I certainly agree with the notion that the internet's greatest gift to humanity is the ability to connect people, and when that happens everything will flow from there. The early history of the internet certainly proves that. But at the same time the world is a hostile place, containing terrorists, criminals, corrupt and evil governments, and unscrupulous companies and individuals. Whether we like it or not, to protect the incredibly valuable internet we do need to look after it. Unfortunately its free-flowing days are over.

 

The reality is that in one way or another nearly every country is already interfering in the internet — be it positively or negatively. On the positive side, for example — if it were not for the involvement of the US government we most certainly would not have the open internet that exists today. On the negative side, we see the effects of cybercrime, child pornography, terrorism, spying and so on. Most of these large-scale problems are international and will require some form of international cooperation to address them. Ignoring the need for this does not make those issues go away.

 

As mentioned in my earlier analyses (see links below to some earlier posts), the root problem surrounding the lack of international will to address this is the unwillingness of the international community to split the issues relating to internet governance so that they can each be addressed independently, rather than mixing them all together.

Smart home to detect symptoms of neurodegenerative disease

Smart home to detect symptoms of neurodegenerative disease | Technology | Scoop.it

The Tecnalia Centre for Applied Research has created a system of sensors which when fitted in a home can monitor changes in a person's habits and routine. These observations can then be used to assess whether an individual is suffering from the early stages of a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's.

 

The aim of the project is to improve the quality of life for elderly patients, by installing these sensors in either the care homes or supervised apartments of the patients. The prototype, which has been in development for three years, is currently installed on the premises of Tecnalia in Zamudio, Bizkaia, Spain.

Dragon contamination cleanup forces launch delay | Spaceflight Now

Dragon contamination cleanup forces launch delay | Spaceflight Now | Technology | Scoop.it

Launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying an unmanned cargo ship bound for the International Space Station has been delayed from Sunday to no earlier than March 30, because of what sources described as apparent contamination that could pose problems for research hardware carried by the Dragon cargo craft.

 

SpaceX engineers were preparing the rocket for launch at 4:41 a.m. EDT (GMT-4) Sunday to boost the Dragon capsule, loaded with about 4,600 pounds of equipment and supplies, on an automated flight to the International Space Station.

 

But the launch was put on hold, sources said, when engineers noticed contamination of some sort on the Dragon's lower unpressurized trunk section.
