Estonia: Life in a Networked Society
The power of connectivity can make a difference in public safety, emergency management, health care, business and social services. How can people be provided with equitable access to public services and opportunities irrespective of age or location? Technologies enable people to interact, innovate and share information in totally new ways. People are empowered, business is liberated and the society is more transparent. But how to take advantage of all this? And what does it take to become a networked society? We look at what a country should focus on when building a networked society?
Free The Network
A documentary about the Occupy Wall Street, hacktivism, and the hackers trying to build a distributed network for the Occupy movement and beyond.
You’re on the Internet. What does that mean? Most likely, it means one of a handful of telecommunications providers is middlemanning your information from Point A to Point B.
Fire off an email or a tweet, broadcast a livestream or upload video to YouTube, and you’re relying on vast networks of fiber optic cables deep underground and undersea, working with satellites high above, to move your data around the world, and to bring the world to your fingertips.
It’s an infrastructure largely out of sight and mind. AT&T, Level 3, Hurricane Electric, Tata Indicom – to most these are simply invisible magicians performing the act of getting one online and kicking. To many open-source advocates, however, these are a few of the big, dirty names responsible for what they see as the Web’s rapid consolidation.
The prospect of an irreparably centralized Internet, a physical Internet in the hands of a shrinking core of so-called Tier 1 transit networks, keeps Isaac Wilder up at night.
Wilder is the 21-year-old co-founder of the Free Network Foundation. Motherboard first caught up with Wilder at Zuccotti Park during the fledgling days of Occupy Wall Street.

Hope November 22, 2011 I suppose you have not actually gone to any of the global occupations? You do realize the media is corrupt and lying to you? Do you notice the millions rising globally? Even our brothers and sisters in Israel are standing United with us against our global hijackers. You must realize- there is working action to restore truth, justice- dismantle fear, us terror, and protect our civil rights. Martin Luther King Jr. Speaks louder than ever before with the horrible atrocities taking place by our hijacked nation. Freedom of speech is beaten, our nation is funding the terrorists on record now- I mean come on! Our food supply is poisoned and led by Monsanto executives in the whitehouse, lobby groups successfully have unlimited spending on politicians effectively buying out congress- mostly by aipac. These poor, lost, and in need of guidance people are not to be judged and ridiculed- they are all there for different reasons- and there are plenty I tell you- judging these people is wrong. I know because I have been there. I have watched grown men cry who are ill and young beaten women who have nothing- they wanted to be part of something just- a community had formed. There are military vets, school children, teachers, unions, grandmothers, business men… This is much larger then you have perceived. Do not judge upon people who you do not know.
