A Digital Identity - An Algorithm For The Soul
kateoplis:

“The future of the Internet — which means the future of communications, culture, free speech and innovation — is up for grabs.
The Federal Communications Commission is making decisions that may determine how open the Internet will be, who will profit most from it and whether start-ups will face new barriers that will make it harder for ideas to flourish.
Tim Wu, 41, a law professor at Columbia University, isn’t a direct participant in the rule making, but he is influencing it. A dozen years ago, building on the work of more senior scholars, Mr. Wu developed a concept that is now a generally accepted norm. Called “net neutrality,” short for network neutrality, it is essentially this:
The cable and telephone companies that control important parts of the plumbing of the Internet shouldn’t restrict how the rest of us use it.”
“What makes the current debate so contentious is that the F.C.C. has signaled its intention to grant cable and telephone companies the right to charge content companies like Netflix, Google, Yahoo or Facebook for speeding up transmissions to people’s homes. And this is happening as the F.C.C. is considering whether to bless the merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable, which could put a single company in control of the Internet pipes into 40 percent of American homes.”

History in Pictures: The evolution of Google from simple search to Google Now

The world’s most popular smartphone operating systemself-driving carssmart robots, and balloons that can deliver an Internet connection to remote areas are some of Google’s most interesting current projects, but they wouldn’t even exist without Search. Helping people get around online is still Google’s main product and everything else it does is somehow related to search – in fact, search-related ad revenue is how Google is actually able to pay for all these other projects.
