'The rules for who controls data—and therefore harnesses their value—are part of a bigger geopolitical competition that will shape the 21st century.Until now, the internet has remained relatively global and open, enabling the growth of the digital economy. Messages & email accessible around the world,  the sharing of news,medical & research, stock information is part of this global connectivity. Underneath it lie data, that form everything from bank ledgers to social-media posts. Exchanges of data between organizations (companies, universities, governments, etc.) across borders are what contribute to companies offering services around the world in near real time, or to allies sharing law enforcement & intelligence information. In a world increasingly underpinned and powered by AI, governments rules put into  regarding  access will  influence AI competition.'

I think of New the New Zealand massacre, and of the insidious dark web where division and hatred are sown.

This new transformational era, of the internet has accelerated our experience of time. I fear for the survival of good people, as the meanest, mongrels push hatred and division, and outright lies. like all eras where something new changes everything down the road, enabled the liars to weaponize disinformation.

Cyber-space, where anarchy rules, followed by the ubiquitous screen, which addicted the people to unimagined degrees. Video games stream theft and violence, and thus, when a madman streamed a live massacre, the world woke up to the UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES of information technology.

Here are some salient quotes from the editorial in the NY Time: as authorities rushed to stop a gunman on a mass killing spree in New Zealand, engineers, programmers and content moderators around the globe were scrambling to keep the rampage from going viral. It didn't work.

I write about UC-- "unintended consequences" of societal changes....things that could not have been predicted, at the time.

There have been 4 transformative eras in history. Every single one had unintended consequences, including the era when humans decided to stay put. Towns, cities and states grew at the nexus of rivers. Of course they needed protection. Forts and armies, and finally state military.

The next transformative era was one of industry. Steam engines, the cotton ginny, led to the growth of manufacturing hubs... and pollution etc...

The third was communication technology... beginning with the telegraph and telephone-- where people did not have to live near each other--within 50 miles-- in order to stay in touch. Now they use screens, and are far from home and loved ones.

But the last transformative era, was one of a NEW INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY-- where images and memes could be passed down by the corporatists states. it only began with television. JFK was the first to use mad-men to sell a politician. The passing down of propaganda is the start of. fascist state. It allowed a visual barrage of violent behavior, so that our children, and our young adults, and our bored young men, are bombarded with images of aggression, where blood and violence solve problems, and where 'evil creatures' must be taken down at any costs... forget the collateral damage.

I was born in 1941, when the first tv programs were introduced; there were dramas based on the interactions between people, not the constant aggression & competition promoted today. MY grandson is 13 and we play Fortnite. I played Monopoly with my grandma. Even cooking programs are 'competitions' where there are losers... and children cry.


Finally, along came that invention that put information technology: --the internet-- into a place of anarchy-- cyberspace - where mendacity is the rule, and the worst human behaviors are shared...including the worst.

and then thee is the end of everything...cyber war. Already Trump used it to disable Iran military.

Russia used it to sow division,, hatred and lies.--to interfere with our elections.


But, the threat to everything, all the grids that make our present civilization possible, airplanes that stay in the air, trains that run, elevators to lift people to towers where they live, but electricity, water, and the power grid must be protected, here and around the world... these things must be ruled untouchable... even by a madman!
