At the advent of the internet and data transfer technology our world has become smaller and smaller.
As you see, if you do not have email and cellphone, you do not exist. It is now the things that you can not do without. There is nobody to deal or to do business with you once you do not have email or electronic messenger either. Nobody to trust with you either personal or business. It is a whether you like it or else. This is it, the present technolgy set up.
In view of this, Participatory Panopticon is the byproduct related to such technology. Soon, we all submit ourselves to voluntary surveillance which we can not do without. Social networking is one of the best example to our entrance to participatory panopticon issue which eventually to became our way of life too.
Network neutrality is the principle that internet users should be in control of what content they view and what applications they use on the Internet. The Internet has operated according to this neutrality principle since its earliest days….. Fundamentally, net neutrality is about equal access to the Internet.
In our view, the broadband carriers should not be permitted to use their market power to discriminate against competing applications or content. Just as telephone companies are not permitted to tell consumers who they can call or what they can say, broadband carriers should not be allowed to use their market power to control activity online. —Guide to Net Neutrality for Google Users
Net Neutrality means no discrimination. Net neutrality prevents Internet providers from blocking, speeding up or slowing down Web content based on its source, ownership or destination… The free and open Internet brings with it the revolutionary possibility that any internet site could have the reach of a TV or radio station. The loss of Net Neutrality would end this unparalleld opportunity for freedom of expression. —SaveTheInternet.com FAQ
Net Neutrality means simply that all like Internet content must be treated alike and move at the same speed over the network. The owners of thr Internet’s wire can not discriminate. This is simple but brilliant “end to end” design of the Internet that has made it such a powerful force for economic and social good. —Lawrence Lessig & Robert W. McChesney
I just believe that to ban the use of Blackberry devises is just reasonable for a state to implement once Blackberry failed to comply the state internal regulations.
Each state has its own regulatory requirements in the conduct of their own domestic affairs and standards. If such regulations will downgrade the service capabilities of Blackberry, then it is up to Blackberry to make such business decision whether or not to enter to said agreement.
