The Blue Bulb of Facebook.

With Goldman Sacks valuing Facebook at $50 B with the monies from a “Russian Investor”. I had to laugh. If the CIA had Google, why can’t the KGB have Facebook.
Mind you that is just speculation, but as we have all seen the blue bulb of the Internet, I want to raise a caution flag.
When the Internet was young and the carriers did not offer access, AOL was the primary dial up service. AOL was its own ecosystem and as such did not have the legs Facebook has, but as I watch my wife and her friends share their lives on Facebook in far too a familiar manner I ask myself is this the sustaining model of the future?
Many applications are offering me automatic links to Facebook including the ability to use Facebook as the userid and password.
For me it feels like Deep Packet Inspection is a wasted effort since Facebook knows all.
But the nuances of privacy are not normally a concern for the young. I think we have another 3-5 years before Facebook’s pervasive penetration is recognized as something that needs to be avoided.
While I hear parents and children fight about the invasion of privacy the fact that all generations are on this platform has not truly sunk in.
Over dinner I am constantly hearing of parents that are hiding the fact they read their kids pages.
I think when the next generation of parents sees their kids on facebook the level of parental control will either be integrated or force the kids into a new world.
I would love to hear of your experience. Drop me a line.
Your Secret is Safe with Me.

Until Women Had Faces

Zogby International surveyed nearly 2,000 people about what technologies were the most impactful in our lives. The headlines about the study http://bit.ly/gYfHyP are missing the main point of the story.

High Speed Internet won, but the reality is that almost every one of the innovations being discussed were enabled by the high speed Internet.

Here Is the real story.

Facebook is a generational and gender giant. Women and the young rated Facebook much higher than men.

Google was rated much more important by kids.

The expectation for next year is that home entertainment expands.

From my perspective this is just a continuation of the impact of broadband, When TV integrates over the top the opportunities will be talked about as gaming, video, etc.

But as my friends say, It’s all the Internet.

Video Callers Unite!

I have been socializing with many friends on the topic of where we stand with video these days.

First of all, I think the Internet has proven itself to be capable of delivering quality video on demand. My wife watches Netflix on TV. The kids do Hulu: Everyone’s content.

I also have participated in Telepresence and Skype Video calls that have been extraordinarily crisp and clear.

So it was no wonder that Apple gave the all clear that video was allowed and bought the name Facetime.

Now I have my kids asking about Facetime, the community asking Apple about SIP and me wondering who is going to bridge the gaps.

I think we need to unite on the common thread of delivering video calls between carriers and to conferencing systems.

This is harder than it sounds for two reasons.

1. You never know what’s ahead of you. While VoIP has solved much of its NAT / Firewall issues, or at least become tolerated enough to not have to seek port 80, the video world still has not become accepted as desired traffic. A heavy payload ofUDP aimed at corporate firewall looks like barbarians at the gate and very few companies are looking to change that.

2. The pricing models do not make any sense currently. If you make a stream voice or video over the net it’s free, if you make a call it costs. That is legacy but logical. Now you try to figure out what to charge for video calls and some folks see them as more value that voice, others see them as free, and too many of them see a video conference bridge as a cash cow that has never given them enough milk.

3. What we need is some common sense about what to do when a person to person video call goes across to carriers and what to do when a number of users want to be connected to a video bridge.

These worlds are not exactly on the same page but they should be. The drivers for the marketplace are heating up as H.264 keeps expanding in use and scope these scenarios have to be navigated. I would like to see this done and would be willing to hold a conference call about it.

If you would like to participate please contact me. Carl@4GWE.com

All The Free in China

President Obama, went to China and gave a speech on Internet Freedom.

The President was asked if Chinese people should be allowed to use Twitter. It was an interesting that the Blackberry man admitted he does not tweet. In China, Skype is a partnership with TOM, a company that complies with government requirements.

The interesting issue about the Internet is that it was designed to be a transnational standard without being part of the ISC or any of the traditional rules. Now we are faced with government requirements from every country on the Internet. The Great Firewall of China, has its equivalents almost everywhere these days.

So the question has to be asked is will Internet Freedoms be the same everywhere, and if not, is there a core requirement we should aspire to worldwide.

The W3C, keeps expanding the abilities of the web to the point where the backbone of the Internet has shifted. Should we expect the web to be a baseline for these freedoms?

I will send some notes around to key players and would like your feedback of relevant people to ask these questions.

Should we expect Internet Freedoms to be applied world wide?

Is the a baseline of service beyond best effort we should expect?

What issues do we face if government and carriers regulate the Internet?

What technical issues are of concern to your these days?

About seven years ago, at the dawn of the new millennium, many people regarded internet shopping as a taboo, something unheard of, with one of the main reasons being a lack of trust placed in the payment system. How do we know our details will be safe, is an example of one of the many questions asked. Yet in today’s fast paced world that taboo has turned into a revolution.

Any game that has this level of addictiveness is worth checking out and I am glad I did as the game is awesome!The only thing about World of Warcraft that really gets me is how difficult the game is, although I suppose this is where the fun lies as well.

Because the ground last night was not flat, I had slid down one side, and the sleeping bag was wet as were my feet.
