STOCKHOLM -- The Internet has already become the most important infrastructure of the world. And that's just the beginning. Soon it will also be the infrastructure of all of our other infrastructures. So far, the governance of the net has been a biosphere of informal and formal institutions with multiple stakeholders having a say, but none having a dominating influence. But the dynamics of its development would not have been possible without the strong role of the tech community.
The great Victorian author, Edith Wharton, wrote An Age of Innocence in order to evoke a bygone era. While the novel's title was misleading in some de...
While it is easy to be caught off-guard when a child uses inappropriate language online, it is important for the parent to not overreact or belittle the child because the parent's response to the child's probably experimental rebellion may have a lasting impact on her. A warm and positive relationship with the child will induce her to seek the parent out for information and advice about words and behavior.
I started to reflect on how I ended up in the mess -- this personal journey about my love and obsession with, well, telecommunications (though you may call it broadband, Internet, cable, wireless, etc).
Whoever invented the key fob for cars did not design it for women with more than one purse. I feel like I am playing a constant game of hide-and-seek with my keys.
The idea that only one class of wires -- regular, POTS, local phone voice calling access lines -- are now the foundation and criteria for 'shutting off the copper' or to be used as the principle policy driver, is ludicrous.
A great thing about Google: the autocomplete function lets you know you're not the only deeply insecure guy asking this or any question. Then a bad thing about Google: it can raise questions as much as it answers them.

The internet is exploding about someone yelling at a toddler in a diner. It is the kind of thing that makes me question what it is I do. The blogging, I mean. It makes me feel like I am part of the problem...guilty by association...or maybe just guilty.

Folks, many of you may know that I don't tend to change things that are working just fine. You may have noticed this from all the change that's happen...
As a girl who loves a good superhero film, I wish more than anything that I had more female characters to look up to. Not women that are sexy and flexible, and are the love interests, but women who are strong, brave and just as tough as the male superheroes.
Faxing important documents is still a vital and necessary part of many business practices, and with technology making almost everything available online, fax has not been excluded from that.
Cory's concepts and goals for The Showroom are ever evolving. "I want this space to mirror the internet," he says, referring to injecting technology and tech aspects to exhibits to facilitate the viewer with readily accessible and instant behind-the-piece access.
I never knew Dominic was so sick or Summer and Matthew were so sad by watching their Facebook posts alone. If it wasn't for Facebook though, I might not have even known they died. I'm not sure if that's worse.
