OECD report on the state of IPv6 April 10, 2010

Posted by oecstimes in 1.
add a comment

“The penetration of operating systems that supports IPv6 indicates the number of Internet computers/devices that could potentially run IPv6 if IPv6 connectivity was available.

The number of potential users is quite high with over 90% of the installed base of operating systems being IPv6-capable, and roughly 25% of end users running an operating system that supports IPv6 by default in January 2010, such as Windows Vista or Mac OS X.

However, actual IPv6 connectivity by users is very low. A one year experiment by Google estimated that just 0.25% of users had IPv6 connectivity (and chose IPv6 when given the choice) in September 2009, up from less than 0.2% one year before. After France, the top countries by percentage of native IPv6 capable users in September 2009 were China, Sweden, the Netherlands, the United States, and Japan.” More

Internet access is ‘a fundamental right’ March 9, 2010

Posted by oecstimes in 1.
add a comment

A BBC story: Almost four in five people around the world believe that access to the internet is a fundamental right, a poll for the BBC World Service suggests.

The owner of this site has gone on record to suggest to the CARICOM region that Governments should look at how they can set the broad policy as “Connect All” and thus allow regulatory and business sectors to follow in the same vane rather than blindly talking poverty reduction whilst maintaining the opposite through antiquated monopolistic telecommunications business models.

Science, Civilization and Global Ethics: Can we understand the next 1000 Years? March 3, 2010

Sohail Inayatullah

What will the world look like in one thousand years? What factors will create the long-term future? What are the trajectories? Will we survive as a species? Will science reduce human ignorance through its discoveries or will ignorance increase as science becomes the hegemonic discourse? Will that which is most important to us always remain a mystery, outside our knowing efforts? What should be the appropriate framework in which to think of the long-term?

Transition Yahoo’s paid search and algorithm platforms to Microsoft;
Yahoo becomes sales force for premium search advertisers of both companies;
Move people, systems and processes around as needed;
Innovate, monetize better and get more scale to compete with Google;
And do it in a way where Yahoo search users won’t notice much and flee to Google.
