You can argue that's been a big contribution to the internet.

Well, that and they provided the stage for "SWAP.AVI" to be made.

Warning:  Do not google or try to find SWAP.AVI.  For all that is good and holy in this maelstrom of static chaos that is the universe, just walk away.  It is not safe for work, lunch or good mental health.  Of course, there are always a few foolhardy souls whose curiosity will lead them to stick the fork in the toaster to see what it does.  To those I pray to the great gor-God Yiffee that your soul remains somewhat intact after.

The push to reformulate Internet governance gained momentum in Brazil after documents leaked by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden showed the U.S. National Security Agency had spied on the phone calls and e-mails of Brazilian citizens and companies and the president herself.

Good.

They're actually one of the fastest adopters in South America, And will probably give the US a run for its money in a few years.

/the poor are poor, the rich are absurdly rich.
 
2014-04-23 06:32:30 PM  
Meh, I agree in principle, but in reality I trust the internet more in America's hands than I would if it were in basically any other nation's or cabal's care.
 
2014-04-23 06:39:01 PM  
Didn't the US announce, about a month ago, that in 2015 it will give up governance of the Internet to an international body?
 
2014-04-23 06:39:45 PM  
Yeah, Fox, little old Brazil is the only country thinking that way, and it wasn't the general theme of the entire meeting.

Next you'll be telling me China and other major world powers are creating their own internets because they don't like the power the US has over the current one. Like that would ever happen.

Yup. I give it 2-years before the People's Republic of China tries to chime in: "Obviously we should control the internet, as we have the most people. Oh and new IP addresses will be in Chinese characters too"

Brazil is awesome, in a quasi sort of socialist protectionialism sort of way. From my understanding, Brazil has this really strong protectionism attitude legally. Basically if it's not made in Brazil, then it gets a lot of taxes dumped on it including software. This helped spur Linux in Brazil because Windows was unaffordable. Mandriva came out of the union of Mandrake (a French company) and .... I forgot what the Brazillian Linux was. Anyway, because of all of this schools and govt all use open source software. Which is excellent.

Of course, it's still Brazil. I rarely hear anything good about Brazil.

Old school. I approve. It's really amazing how many people have forgotten the video that started it all.

I get the feeling that Brazilians are going to be super disillusioned about their supposed "internet privacy" some day soon. You get the feeling that their politicians doth protest too much.

Actually Colombia and Argentina are with Argentina leading.

I worked for a multinational web marketing company that had offices all over south america, and the one job we did in brazil was for a shopping center that you had to drive a certain kind of car to be allowed in, like bmws, porches, rolls, etc, register your income, or land at the heliport, you know just to keep the riff raff out.

Brazil is hugely protectionist as well, which is why they were so slow in the digital revolution, for a long time the only computers you could buy in Brazil, had to be made in brazil.

Actually, what Brazil said was, "No country that isn't named 'Brazil' shall rule the internet."
Similarly, the Americans have said, "No country that isn't the US shall rule the internet."
(Most countries have the same kind of attitude - no country that isn't them shall rule
the internet.)

The obvious thing is that if America doesn't give up control of the internet to some at least nominally impartial body, it will break up into competing protocols that are incompatible with other, because too many other countries are at least wary of, if not in quite a few instances actively hostile to, such a fundamental part of modern economic infrastructure being under US control.

If any country wants control over their own intra-internet- go ahead and take it, no one is stopping you. Oh, wait. You can't be arsed to spend the money on your own infrastructure. Boo farking hoo for you. If you want to connect to American based servers and infrastructure, boo farking hoo for you. There are dozens of eastern europeans who are happy to shove some malware down your throat to access russianpropaganda.ru

There are poor countries in the world where you can connect to a server across the street, and your communication is routed across a couple oceans into the US, then immediately goes back over a couple oceans to your neighbor's house. That's because they don't want to pay for their own internet infrastructure.

Just damage control after so many other countries deciding they would stop using it. I don't think anyone is dumb enough to believe that will disable the information collection and spying.

The Internet

The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link several billion devices worldwide.


Oh, well then, it's obvious that we should run it.

They're welcome to regulate the portions of the infrastructure that are housed in their nation, so long as they do it in a way that the rest of us won't find it necessary to cut them off for compatibility reasons.

... oh, they don't have any?  Well, then.

I worked for a company which did a lot of work with Brazil based associates.  The country is a weird slush of 3rd world and 1st world, in a tropical paradise.

And they speak farking portugese, which just screws with the heads of people (me) from Texas, since you pick up a little spanish here and there and, oh, ya, it's farking useless for the super hot chick who's trying to explain business concepts for your stupid ass.
