In my opinion, there is a problem with viewing the Internet as publicly owned. The Internet is corporate owned and has been for some time and corporations who own it are going to make decisions that are in their best interests.

No part of the Internet is publicly owned, the last vestiges of that were given up when the FCC killed net neutrality.

If we truly want a free and open Internet we need to build a new one that is not controlled by corporations. You can talk all you want about how you want companies to act, but they will not act in the public’s best interests unless it just happens to coincided with their own interests.

Yes, there are companies like Apple that give the impression they do make decisions in the public’s best interests, but I think Apple’s stances on privacy are self serving, it is their competitive differentiator.

You can say much the same thing about the corporate owned media in the United States. The press that existed at the time the first amendment was written is different than how how it exists today.

There is little to no concept of “public square” today because nearly motive is driven by profit and no where enough motive is driven by public good.

Is It Time for a Space Force?

Answer: No!

Can you say, expanding military industrial complex? We can’t afford to provide health care to the citizens of this country because all our tax dollars are used to make suppliers to the military wealthy. When is the last time you heard of cuts to the defense budget?

Universal Method to Sort Complex Information Found

One thing I enjoyed when I was in college, studying computer science, were lectures on things like this that were way over my head.

What I really want to know is, is this a new way to determine six degrees of Kevin Bacon?

One thing I do not like about Android Pie is that it is not obvious how to uninstall apps. When you tap and hold an app icon in the drawer the uninstall option does not display until you move the icon towards the top.

Does owning your own domain = owning your content? I am not so sure.
