Internet Is Sick: Mozilla Want to Cure It and Protect Your Future

Mozilla is a well known organization by its Defense of an internet in which everything is open and that keeps the original spirit with which the network of networks was born. Things have changed in recent years, and there are several threats that have made the internet health is at risk.

That is what he has done that in Mozilla launch call Internet health report, an initiative in which five themes are investigated: decentralization, digital inclusion, open innovation, privacy and security, and web literacy. The findings of the report are strong, and we’ve talked about them with Mark Surman, Mozilla Foundation Executive Director.

Many challenges to be overcome for the cure

As indicated by the conclusions of the report, there are important challenges that must be overcome to try internet to advance in the right direction. For example: despite the great advances in the adoption of Internet, 58% of the world’s population cannot afford a connection to the Internet.

Another problem affecting internet is the widespread use of English, which has become the “native” language of the network of networks: 52% of the websites are in English, While only 25% of the global population understands this language.

This report also talks about how in Europe, outdated copyright laws make share selfies made against certain public places, like the Eiffel Tower, is technically illegal. That contrasts with the fact that thanks to licensing Creative Commons estimate is that there are 1,000 million artworks online licensed CC, which encourages the reuse of text, images and music.

The areas of coverage of this first version of the report are varied and include related topics with innovation or the privacy and security. In the latter, for example, the Mozilla Foundation members speak of how do the safer web with a technology increasingly more available to users: encryption through services such as Let completo Encrypt.

The era of ethical internet companies

Mark Surman, Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation – which by the way, recently changed its branding-explained in a post on the official blog of this organization the principles and objectives of this initiative, but we could also keep a phone conversation with him to ask him about the risks that threaten Internet.

We mentioned for example the current situation in which various Giants of technology strive by lock ourselves in their ecosystems both products hardware and software products. What can we do to fix it?

For Mr. Surman “we have a good example in the email”, a standard system that can be accessed by paying for a premium service, using free services like Gmail or even mounted an own server. In each of these alternatives must assess things as a cost in time, money, or maintenance to decide, but the good thing is that there are alternatives.

This model should be extended to many other areas of the internet, and here Mr Surman spoke to us of the important thing is “make good decisions: Choosing good social networks, for example, although it is difficult in some segments” by centralizing these services”.

“One of the potential ways that everything improves is that we”companies offer alternative products, both in searches, social networks, etc,”commented Mr. Surman, who had an ambition: of that changed one”was of ethical internet companies”.

The third of the solutions didn’t come from us, but from the regulatory and judicial bodies. For this Executive of Mozilla, we need a much less “soft” regulation, one who has strong laws antitrust and to protect the rights and freedoms of the users in a more forceful way.

We speak also of the Firefox OS failure and what it has meant that for Mozilla. Mr. Surman told us that that failure “shows how difficult that is to try to get into these environments and be competitive”. For the segment of smartphones is a market with only two players, and is too hard to get into it, what he has done in Mozilla wanting to focus on other ways of reaching users as the Internet of things or artificial intelligence, but always with the same principle: “products and ethical solutions”.

There is also a problem with the relevance of native applications against the use of e.g. HTML5-based web applications in the mobility segment.

“Mr. Surman for”there is certainly a technical debate”about the superiority of one type of applications over others, but noted that”the debate is actually the distribution”: who controls the software is distributed is the one who dictates how that software has to be programmed.” This is where Google and Apple have an obvious advantage.

Finally we asked Mr. Surman from hazards that affect internet before the tumultuous political landscape for example given in the United States with Trump as the country’s new President. Although this directive did not want to comment directly focused to Trump, it said that “we need an internet that welcome more to its users, with laws that protect them, and a plan that protects us from the efforts by” eroding the encryption of communications or network neutrality”.

Fishing Techniques

SurfCasting

In essence, your Surf Casting aims to fishing on the beach in case of raging sea. The “surfcasting” launch on need to surf beaches characterized by a large cut of your profile and volatility high frequencies of sea. These are the conditions that some of the fish look for food. With a good swell, the waters are well oxygenated and the bottom of the beach is enough to fold the fish to forage for food. For this type of fishing is not enough to have a good technique and good material; Although essential, is far more important to practice, the observation of the sea and the accumulation of experience. A fisherman to beach to get good results, has a good carbon rod, a reel with good wire exit, uses appropriate lines to the coil and can put the sinker away from the beach.

Fishing Feather

Flyfishing or fly fishing is based on the use of artificial flies as bait-based catch. There are reports of its use in China in 2000 BC. The modern fly fishing appears mainly as a catch modality for trout and salmon, in the 20th century its use extends to other species being used for fishing in the sea. This very technical method consists of basing the bait on the water in order to enhance the catch, it requires some practice and technique as well as the visualization of the fish (usually when walking near the surface). The main difference for other techniques is mainly the line, heavy enough to send the boom to the desired location. In Portugal, in addition to the classic trout (with few catching places), it can be used in fishing for pike, barbel, boga, escalo, black bass, carp. Captures of species such as carp and barbel feeding on small insects and larvae or pike and bass that feed on small fish, frogs, etc., require the feather to simulate their food. The same technique can be used in the sea to catch fish such as garfish, tamarin or even sea bass when it walks on the surface feeding on small fish.

Facebook, False News and The Debate about The Wisdom of The Masses
