Interesting developments in the UN this past week linking Internet access to
freedom of expression ­ see here: http://j.mp/jv4KrW (LA Times Article).

At the same time, one of the topics of discussion at the Federated Social
Web (W3C) Workshop in Berlin which I just attended was the use of the
(social) Web in the events leading up to the Egyptian uprising. There is a
great talk from Amr Gharbeia streambale from here:

We held a follow-up session on the topic of how the Web could become a
better tool for this kind of activism (e.g. degrading to peer to peer).
Notes were taken by Harry Halpin at this session ­ Harry, could I possibly
ask you to send those notes and your thoughts to the TAG mailing list?


PS related to user privacy, strongly suggest watching Aleecia McDonaldıs
presentation on economics of advertising and usersı perceptions of privacy
(also linked from http://d-cent.org/fsw2011/). Itıs an eye-opener.
