    Google Fiber 

    “So you’ve heard of Google, right? The single largest search engine and one of the leading software development companies in the world! They are offering to build an experimental network in a community with speeds up to 100 times faster than current internet speeds at an affordable price. It will change how communities access information and interact with the world.

    Google states in the Fiber for the Communities request for information that their goal is to experiment with new ways of making Internet access better and faster for everyone. Here are some specific things that Google has in mind:

    -Next generation applications: They want to see what developers and users can do with ultra high-speeds, whether it’s creating new bandwidth-intensive “killer apps” and services, or other uses we can’t imagine yet.”

    -New deployment techniques: They’ll test new ways to build fiber networks, and to help inform and support deployments elsewhere, they’ll share key lessons learned with the world.

    -Openness and choice: They’ll operate an “open access” network, giving users the choice of multiple service providers. And consistent with their past advocacy, they’ll manage their network in an open, non-discriminatory, and transparent way.


    Boulder, CO wants to be the first city and has set up a website to allow voting and get fiber in B-town. Check it:

    Google Buzz 

    http://www.google.com/buzz

    “Google Buzz is easily the company’s boldest attempt yet to build a social network. Imagine taking elements of Twitter, Yammer, Foursquare, Yelp, and other social services, and shoving them together into one package. Now imagine covering that package in a layer that looks a lot like FriendFeed. Now imagine shoving that package inside of Gmail. That’s Buzz. If Google Wave is the future, Google Buzz is the present.”

    Lots of things said about this thing…I guess there was no Multi-Touch meaning – you can’t use multiple fingers at once…Customer service has been shotty cause its just through Google…But I think this is a total Test Run.  This video is pretty cool tho, mostly the last 2….which Max I think speaks to your TMobile accounts quite nicely.

    Google to China-“No more censorship!” 

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/google/6977627/Google-will-quit-China-unless-web-censorship-ends.html

    In a surprise announcement, the group issued a veiled attack at Chinese censors and said it was prepared to shut down its operations there entirely if the authorities do not allow it to create an unfiltered search engine.

    “We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn… and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all. We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China.”

      China forms “internet addiction re-education camp”

      http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/01/ff_internetaddiction/

      “The Qihang camp promised to cure children of so-called Internet addiction, an ailment that has grown into one of China’s most feared public health hazards. The camp’s brochure claimed that an estimated 80 percent of Chinese youth suffered from it. Fifteen-year-old Deng Senshan seemed to be among them. He was once a top student, but his grades had plummeted over the past couple of years, and he had stopped exercising almost completely. He spent most of his time playing games like World of Warcraft at Internet cafés or on his desktop computer. The Chinese news media was filled with terrifying stories of WOW-crazed kids dropping dead or killing their parents, and Deng Fei and Zhou Juan worried that they might lose their only son to a technological demon they barely understood. So they were lured in by the camp’s pledge to end his “bad behavior.””

      Yet when the place finally came into view, it wasn’t the traditional school-like setting Deng Fei had imagined. Instead, it looked more like a poorly tended jailhouse — decrepit three-story concrete building, barred windows, overgrown bushes. In the distance, through a field of high razor-edged grass, a factory smokestack spewed a black cloud. On a double basketball court, a gang of camouflage-clad teenagers were in the middle of a sweaty training session in the subtropical heat. Counselors, dressed in black shirts with military-police patches on their chests, stood watch.

      “At home, kids are much too comfortable,” he responded, and told her that hardship was part of the cure. “You don’t beat the kids, do you?” she asked. The man waved away the question, assuring her, “We use only psychological treatment here.”

      Rupert rupert…

      LA Times article.

    • untamedyawp 6:07 pm on December 3, 2009 Permalink

      it’s a bit more complicated that either of these two links let on. check this out:
      http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2009/12/placating-publishers-by-limiting-links-a-google-five-click-faq/

      this debate re-introduces a fundamental disagreement between technological and economic mores. the information contained within the net and within both proprietary and freeware software literally wants to be free. the technology itself is screaming to be released from the cage of commodity….the backbone on which it is created intrinsically lends towards an open communication and flow of binary data. but the strictly upheld conventions of capitalist society deem it necessary that the parties responsible for the creation of such technology and organization of such information be reimbursed for their efforts. if they’re not then how can they pour their time and focus into their work and eat at the same time? so now, in order to keep these valuable resources around we are having to literally backtrack to reshape our technologies in order to better fit them to our ailing model of relation to each other and the information and resources we share. this is one more in a long line of examples that points towards a ground level flaw with the way we interact with our technologies and share resources both tangible and intellectual. the light at the end of the tunnel looks like a hard grounding of individualism and personal property. are we ready for that?

    • thedarkcleft 12:50 am on December 4, 2009 Permalink

      I think that we are moving in the wrong direction by looking to go backwards. Why would we want to try to make something as awesome as the net fit into a box as terrible as the economy.

      But I found this reassuring

      “• Are there technical ways around the limits?

      Certainly. The limit will likely be cookie-based, so simply clearing your cookies or changing browsers will help. A more clever workaround involves changing your browser’s user agent so it looks to the website like you are Google’s indexing spider. It’s a surprisingly easy change in Firefox, but might be overkill for most users.”

    Go Google!! 

    Google wants to be your phone carrier. It will work on the same kind of basis as Skype but will be able to be used over a mobile phone. Similar to the old Gizmo5 calling system. Starting around $6/month!! Downfall? You must already have a carrier of some sort but I am sure that whatever your ISP is will allow it. Great.

    • perpetuallyphil 8:36 pm on November 9, 2009 Permalink

      “Rather than pass back and forth multiple copies of messages, Google Wave hosts a single copy of a conversation that all participants can edit and add to. Wave displays the latest version of the conversation to everyone in the group in real-time, even as it’s changing. That means if Jack has the wave he sent Jill open on his computer in California, and Jill is typing her responses in New York, Jack sees the wave change keystroke by keystroke.”

    Today:

    what is google god up to? there’s lots of speculation on interweb. seems to have a lot to do with HG Wells…. September 15th’s logo was paired with a google tweet comprised of the exact coordinates of a field in Horsell, England…..the field where Wells set the first UFO landing in his book War of the Worlds. Today, September 21st is Wells’ day of birth….
