The Digital Renaissance
The Renaissance was a period of unprecedented intellectual, social, philosophical and artistic growth in Europe between the Fourteenth Century and the Seventeenth Century. It is widely accredited as a time that bought Europe out of the Dark Ages or Middle Ages, when scholarship was held in check by religious dogma, and bought Europe into the Modern Age.
Most notable luminaries of the Renaissance include polymaths such as Michelangelo Buonarottiand Leonardo da Vinci; thinkers such as Francis Bacon; writers such as Dante and Shakespeare; essayists such as Michel de Montaigne; and scientists such as Nicolaus Copernicus. The list of notable geniuses that represent the flowering of the Renaissance is too long to list here.
There are two notable reasons for the Renaissance. The first is the emergence of lost Greek manuscripts from such people as Aristotle and Plato. The church had suppressed knowledge of the Latin and Greek classics for hundreds of years. They had been kept by Muslim scholars since the fall of the Roman City of Constantinople. These missing texts had an enormous effect on all branches of knowledge.
Secondly, the new intellectual spirit of the age was carried to the furthest corners of Europe and beyond by the invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenburg, a German inventor in 1450 AD. This took the dissemination of books out of the hands of monks who hand-copied scripts into the hands of the masses. Books became cheap and easy to get hold of. Books also that would have been previously overlooked deliberately now found their way to the public. This bought a great forment of ideas that was to change the mid-sets of each generation and that was eventually to lead to the French Revolution and the overthrow of the Ancient Regime.
The Digital Revolution
Computers started developing in the 1950s. Internet Protocol Suite was invented in 1982, and by the 1995 the internet was opened to all with access to the new technology. Since that time the speed of microprocessors has increased year upon year. Both software and hardware has progressed so rapidly that systems soon become outdated.
In terms of communication, in 1993 only 1% of communication was carried out using the internet. By 2007 more than 97% of the world’s communication was through the internet and the World Wide Web. Cables have been laid all around the world to facilitate faster and better communication. A number of platforms such as SMS messaging and Skype have made real time communication a mundane part of life.
The World Wide Web grows with every second that passes. Estimates now reckon it is at least 7.85 billion pages (http://www.worldwidewebsize.com/). Google is at present attempting to scan every book ever published and put it online. They have already photographed the world and put up the most comprehensive map ever known. They have even mapped the stars.
It is very tempting to compare the internet and the World Wide Web with the invention of the printing press - they are both technological backbones behind new artistic, intellectual and social movements. The Renaissance bought us naturalism, rational inquiry, the scientific method and political meta-understanding. The internet has bought us a digital renaissance whereby a library of information beyond our wildest dreams has now become available and accessible to anyone who can get online.
Since we are in the middle of the digital renaissance it is hard to tell the final legacy of such a sea-change. The notions of knowledge power and knowledge creation have come to the fore. Whereas the upper classes and the business classes have tried to maintain the status quo of an asymmetry of knowledge to benefit themselves, the internet has made this virtually impossible. Everything from learning to perform heart surgery to growing magic mushrooms to making your own solar panels is now available for free on the web.
Moreover, sites like Wiki Leaks as well as ‘on the ground blogs’ have removed the power of journalism from corporate identities and allowed people to report and access news anywhere. It is hard to cover up the truth and we are gradually getting a better idea of how the world is secretly run for the benefit of the few. Where the first Renaissance could arguably be said to have led to the French Revolution and the end of the monarch system, it is tempting to think that the digital renaissance will lead to a farther fundamental change in social structures and the body politic. We have already seen how Facebook has been a powerful tool for change in North Africa and the Middle East. This trend will no doubt continue.
In terms of the arts, the digital age has lead to ever increasing perfection in the copying of nature. Nature can be digitized and an almost exact replica can be produced. This is the dream of Michelangelo come true. We now have 3D digital renditions and holograms on the net are surely not far behind. The Arts are and will continue to undergo massive paradigm shifts as a result of the digital renaissance.
The old Chinese curse of ‘May you live in interesting times’ is very applicable to the age we live in. On the one hand we have unprecedented levels of consumerism, resource depletion and pollution; but on the other hand we are in the throes of a new epoch defined by an all embracing technology that is changing our world view, and threatens for better or for worse to bring whole scale social and intellectual change as well.
There is little doubt that one of the biggest areas of growth in marketing is that of digital advertising. There are many reasons, of course the obvious one is that we know spend such a huge part of our lives online, browsing the internet or with our eyes locked onto our Smartphones. Every screen is an opportunity for an advert, for a manufacturer to highlight a product, promote a brand or sell you a service.
It’s not just the obvious places, you might think that a few adverts on the top of your search engine results may be the main visibility. But look around your Facebook profile and you’ll see highly targeted adverts based on your behavior and demographic. All the adverts there will be based on something you’re bought, or clicked on or simply the fact that a middle aged man may be interested in something to regrow his hair or maintain his virility.
It’s the power of digital advertising which makes it so powerful to companies. In years gone by, you could roughly target audiences perhaps by placing adverts in specific magazines, on certain radio stations or placed before a particular type of TV programme. This is nothing compared to the power of the digital advert which are often aimed squarely at a very small sub section or type of individual. Anything from age, social class, location and gender to name but a few can be used to tailor a very specific advert directly to you.
Car manufacturers often have specific sets of digital adverts for the same product. For example the way you sell a car to a 20 year old male is going to be very different to a 45 year old female. Creating multiple digital adverts for the same product is relatively easy although obviously there’s going to be a danger of diluting your message this way.
The simplest way to target a user is by using the web, when ever you access a site you give away certain pieces of information automatically. Most corporate websites now check on your location and log it, usually for marketing or research reasons. Others use it to directly control access to content, for example you can’t watch the BBC Iplayer in the US unless you hide your location (like this site shows – http://iplayerusa.org/)
There lies one of the battles to come in the digital world, web sites like Facebook and Twitter want as much information about their users as possible. The more they have the better targeted their adverts, and the more control they have over who see what on their sites. The big American media companies like Hulu broadcast loads of stuff online but they need to control which locations can access the content due to commercial and copyright reasons. For the individual surfing online though the complete lack of privacy can be a concern, which is where the conflict begins. At the moment there’s quite a trivial and inexpensive solution to this control and filtering that takes place. Invest a couple of dollars a month in a UK VPN service for example and you can watch any UK Television from anywhere, it also hides your real location and encrypts your data.
A few years ago the phrase VPN (virtual private network) would not have been used outside an IT department, colleges and Universities but now that’s changed greatly. For instance last Summer I took and extended break in a small town in Spain with a large population of ex-pats. There were lots of Spanish people living there too but for some reason it had become a hub for expats from a few European countries – mainly UK, Germany and France.
Well in a bar one night I started talking to some one about the options for watching the BBC in Spain and explained that using a VPN was one method particularly if you had a decent internet connection. Surprisingly the person I was talking to a 55 year old woman, not only had heard the phrase but had already used one. I was surprised and discovered that what she had actually been using was a service called Expat shield, a horrible adware riddled program that hid your location in exchange for filling your computer with banners and popups every time you used it. But I was still surprised and asking around the bar, the majority had heard the expression and many tried such a solution.
Well a VPN is actually a fairly generic term, and refers to a secure connection between two or more computers. Nowadays most people are referring to an Internet VPN which used in internet to extend that private network. It normally takes the form of a VPN client software which connects through to a VPN service on another, although many VPN service online consist of little more than a set of instructions on how to set up the connection through windows or OSx.
The use of the technology online by private individuals is generally for one of two specific reasons – firstly the security aspect. Because a VPN is secure and encrypted is means that all the data (your web browsing) is also protected too, essential for doing stuff like online banking or checking your webmail or Paypal account whilst using the free Wifi access in your local coffee shop.
The other use is to hide your IP address, this is because when you connect via a VPN only the server address is visible, your real address is completely hidden. The advantage of this is that if that server is based in the UK then you can access UK only websites like BBC iplayer, ITV player and so on. Switch to a US based server and you can use US only sites like Hulu, NBC and Pandora. You can see for anyone who travels a lot, lives abroad or is concerned about security then there are many reasons – to buy a VPN service.
Calculating pay for US military service members is a daunting task. Thankfully, in our digital world we have the ability to use this new military pay chart for 2014.
The greatest aspect of the military pay chart is the idea that people are being rewarded for taking on extra risks and responsibilities that are helpful to the success of an overall mission. Serving your country is something that should give you a great sense of accomplishment and pride. However, you probably do not want to do so without knowing exactly how much compensation is available for the efforts that you would be expected to put forward. Basic pay is available to all soldiers as a means of providing them with the money that they need in order to survive and provide for the people that are important to them in the world. Information about basic pay is easy to understand and read through in order to help point you in the right direction when you are in the fence about a decision tied to serving.
However, the military pay chart also shows that there are many other things you could obtain compensation for that you may want to know. Bringing extra skills to the table would offer you special compensation that may help to create a much more enjoyable experience on your part. Special duty pay is intended to provide extra funds for those with jobs that are very demanding in terms of what they require. Taking on this additional stress would provide you with a window to be able to enjoy more financial security while you are in the military. Reading about the various special pay options can be a great way to understand purpose of financial value.
It is not always easy when you are getting the right price on the correct type of desktop computer for your specific needs. In fact, many people are lack of knowledge needed when it comes on shopping wisely. This article will help you learn more in terms of choosing the right desktop computer you are looking for. It will help you learn more about the market on what you are able to do to make simpler process. ASP can do a lot of things when considering a desktop computer to buy. Ensure that you have protection software such as using anti-virus. Your computer can easily infect with some malicious software once you are not running a good program. Your private data can be easily hacked. Your data can easily be stolen by hackers which is not good. If you want to keep you data safe then many programs on the market will run a scan and does such computer repair. You need to check the sound capabilities of the computer that you are going to buy. This is very important especially when you do projects or work on a computer that relies on the sounds.
ASP helps you find good desktop computers. Many desktop computers are in good quality. But if you don’t have any idea on which of them, then surely you can pick the wrong one. Of course, you don’t want this to happen. So, checking on the capabilities of the desktop computers that you are going to buy is very much important. As mentioned above, if your work relies on the sound, then checking the sound capability is needed. If you do mixing or sound editing, you might need something more powerful. You can consider buying refurbished model when you want to save your money when buying desktop computer. You can check out websites of major computer manufacturers like ASP, Dell or HP. You can find great deals on desktop computers that have been reimbursed to the company. In any desktop computers you are buying, be careful to check on the versions of software. Except if you want to be continually updating it or to replace the operating system entirely.
ASP has many good deals that can be had on desktop computers that contain closely outdated software. Ensure that you are buying desktop computers that are compatible online and even for other purposes. Take into consideration on what you will be using for when you choose desktop computer. You can afford to go cheaper if you merely use it for word processing and web access. You will want more RAM, ASP and graphic card if you will be using it for gaming. In deciding your price point, the task you will use for will be very much important. Desktop models are better when you need copier, scanner, fax and a printer. Additionally, many people find typing is easy when using a regular keyboard then working on laptops. Don’t simply think on your needs today when you are buying desktop computers.
There’s barely a day goes by when someone famous, somewhere does something they regret online. It’s hardly surprising really when people set them selves up to receive thousands of Tweets from fans or just as likely haters.
I support a very small, rather unsuccessful professional football team yet even here I have seen the effects of Twitter rage. A player after a particularly bad performance and seen conversing on Twitter is very likely to receive some unwelcome comments. Some ignore these and just carry on, but some characters engage in exchanging insults which rarely looks professional and is more likely to supply any media reporter with a selection of quotes to start a story with. Even at this low level, a professional footballer can have several thousand people following their every word/tweet which is fine if someone is filtering and managing what you say, not so good if you respond after a hard day with a beer in your hand!
Many people in the public eye are sensibly backing away from social networks simply because the risk of bad publicity is starting to outweigh the good stuff. They are starting to realize about the huge amount of digital data that is being created online about everyone of us – every comment, every status update and every Tweet is creating an extensive digital profile for each one of us.
The dangers are many and perhaps the advantages certainly professionally are not really worth it. For instance, comments you make now could be viewed in 5 or ten years time, opinions and statements that were perhaps off the cuff might appear in that job interview that means so much to you.
It doesn’t take much imagination to visualise a situation where having drunken pictures or comments floating around the internet might not be the best long term career move. Apparently senior executives are also deciding to back off from social media too, many are just switching off their digital profile – the concept is being dubbed ‘the digital detox’. Others are doing so simply because it can take up so much of your life, the time consumed in interacting in these sites can be considerable and all encompassing.
We’re seeing more and more people using security programs to cut down on their digital profile and what’s logged about them. I know people who use proxies to relay their connections when they connect to specific sites, if you login through a program with a British IP address then that’s where many websites will decide where you’re from.
Whatever the best solution for you, keeping aware is essential – good advice is to step back and think before you post anything online. Ask yourself if you’d be happy about anyone seeing it now, and in ten years time as that might just happen.

Many of us seem to accept that we will lose a certain amount of privacy the more our lives become centred around the digital world. After all when we post up details of where we are, what we are doing to hundreds or even thousands of people on social networking sites then it’s obvious privacy is not at the top of our concerns. However I suspect many have not even began to think of some of the wider issues involved and specifically whom we are allowing to see our details.
There are dangers involved and some more obvious than others. Many teenagers for example, have literally thousands of ‘friends’ in sites like Facebook – it’s almost like a popularity contest. A contest I might add am unlikely to win with my rather sad 67 friends listed currently. But imagine the teenager who announces to the masses that they are off on holiday for three weeks with their parents to their 2100 ‘friends’, what a great way for burglars to target properties, car thieves to steal cars or even identity thieves target individuals or their premises.
Handy social apps which announce your location and status to everyone – sounds great, but do you really want thousands of virtual stalkers? Do you want your pictures and images distributed far and wide throughout the digital world. Because that is what happens, photos online can end up anywhere and not just with your few select friends.
The major issue with our browsing is that it is fundamentally built on something pretty much insecure – HTTP. The protocol that we mainly use to browse and surf the internet works great but has no security at all (HTTPS has some but very little). Everything is sent and distributed in clear text – all our posts, web browsing, downloads, messages included. This you can at least do something about by using software like this – demonstrated here.
But even that won’t help you when you’re using the web sites themselves and the internal security. Everything you are and do online has value and such it is valuable information to everyone from companies to governments. There is a reason that Facebook for example record every keystroke you make on their site, including stuff you decide to delete/don’t post – it’s because it’s useful to advertisers.
We feel that we’re in control of our identity when we browse the web but it’s simply not true. For example your IP address is used for a whole host of decisions about your browsing – what you see and how. Take the BBC site for example you are checked as soon as you log on to that site, if you’re ip address is not British then you won’t be able to use the amazing BBC Iplayer application. Well at least unless you do something like this Video – Watch Iplayer abroad.
The reality is that by default we have very little control of our personal information, although we can improve that situation. Be careful about what you post and where, check out VPNs and security software that encrypt your connection and make sure your security settings are controlled on any social web sites you use.
If you are looking for the right things that you want to know about cell phones, then you have come at the right place. Cellphones are capable of many things and there are many things that you must know when it comes to this gadget. This is a simple way or gadget that serves as little communication tools. The kostumer gained popularity for little communication tool services. Try to keep reading on some helpful and useful information about this kind of digital evolution. When shopping for udklædning and cell phones, you have to consider the features that you completely need.
Cell phones offer many features nowadays including cameras, internet access and also the ability to work various applications. Whereas all of these are nice features, it may not that worth paying for the pricey phone if you would not make use of them. Before making your final choice, you must think carefully before anything else. When signing up for your cellphone plans, ensure to consider data minutes. There are some plans that are very strict on minutes and this would result into bad deal. Once your cellphone access internet so much time and or play games often, you would end up with costly bills. Once your phone is proficient of doing these things, you must get all the most out of it through buying a plan that will support sufficient usage.
When purchasing your cell phone and kostumer, you have you make sure that you are considering the bundles. Lots companies offer them and including things such as car charger or a case. It can be less expensive to purchase all these things in a bundle and udklædning than buying them separately. There is a good chance you would desire some of the accessories and udklædning. When your cellphone battery dies quickly, you might like to look toward your apps. If an app is running, it used your battery. When you are not utilizing an app, make sure that you close it. In this way, you are saving your battery and you don’t have to worry about having dead battery.
As they become of age, the smartphones might slow down. These issues can be minimized when you update software. The updates are more powerful and bigger. The updates needed kostumer and become too much for old phones to handle. You may want to download and install cloud storage app into your cell phone once you want to listen to music. You can save your favorites through this way as this can save your favorites to it without even using the memory in your cell phone. You might also do this with images. In addition, it can keep your pictures and music safe when something happened to your cell phone.
You can check out case’s price online before you decide to buy the case in the carrier store. As you can see, you can have lots of choices online. You can even seek for inexpensive price and this can save your money a lot.
You would have thought that it would be pretty much the same to start a digital business wherever you are in the world. However that’s certainly not the case, to be fair the internet has brought a host of new opportunities to countries across the globe. There are numerous problems, many of them self inflicted by the countries themselves.
One of the problems is unfortunately a trust issue. Places like Nigeria are well known for being the home of many online scams and digital thieves, this instantly makes it difficult for any law abiding Nigerian to set up a business on the web. Do you buy from a Canadian online wholesaler or a Nigerian one? The reputation for corruption in the African country makes it an easy choice.
It’s the same problem with getting payments, it’s hard to get accounts with online processors from many countries. A internet entrepreneur from Europe or the USA will have no difficulty setting up a merchant account with somewhere like Paypal, but it’s much harder from many of the developing countries and often impossible. As always there are routes around these blocks but they come at a price which means of course operating costs rise.
In fact although it seems odd in the global world of the web, location is one of the biggest limiting factors in any online business. Many advertising portals are restricted to the country of origin, meaning for example you can’t place an advert for your product on the Californian version of Craigslist if you happen to live in the Philippines. The global market is not quite there yet for small businesses.
As stated for most issues there are workarounds and ways of bypassing these restrictions. Many people utilize virtual mail boxes and offices, or another common route is to invest in some sort of proxy or VPN solution like this video demonstrates – it’s entitled How to use a Japan Proxy and you can find it on YouTube if it’s doesn’t display well here.
These tools enable you to hide your real location so you can access sites and opportunities that may be restricted due to your location. They are also invaluable for market research too, allowing you to surf the web in the same manner as your target audience. The example shows how the user is able to access a ‘Japanese Only’ website without restrictions and invaluable tool for an internet business person.
Other restrictions are actually put in place by the Governments themselves, the Chinese authorities have seriously hamstrung their own domestic digital entrepreneurs by the implementation of the Great Firewall of China. It’s designed to control and restrict access to Chinese citizens to content deemed inappropriate – such as talking about Tiananmen Square. But in reality it also means that running any sort of digital business is much harder in China than in the US for example.
When the internet was in it’s infancy none of these blocks or restrictions were in existence. In some senses it’s kind of depressing that a chance for genuine free and restricted world trade has been lost. However for running any serious internet business you will have to invest in these tools. At least the good news is that it can also open the doors to watching some great online TV from the likes of Hulu and the BBC as well – check this site out – http://www.iplayerabroad.com/ for more details.
Apple has been in the security news recently, battling flaws in it’s operating system which have made people browsing online unsafe. Over the years, OS X users have always enjoyed relative safety online compared to PC users but with increasing popularity more and more threats are being uncovered. IN fact there have always been issues, just like with poor old Windows but they were simply not exploited to the same extent, in fact the first virus was discovered on OS X many years ago.
This current issue was noticed on some of Apple’s mobile devices running iOS 7, it related to secure connections made by Safari (Apple’s web browser) and SSL enabled websites anything from your online banking, to Facebook and Paypal. Security between these sites is maintained by SSL and relies on a certificate being exchanged prior to secure communications. The vulnerability meant that these certificates weren’t actually being verified meaning that hackers could impersonate any web site and capture all the data which was supposedly encrypted.
If you run your connection through some sort of secure proxy like this video explains then it would be secure.
But without that additional layer, then your standard HTTPS traffic would be visible to the attacker, which of course could include the username and password to your online banking site.
It turned out that the security issue also affected OS X as well as iOS7 which meant that laptop and desktops were also similarly affected. Worryingly it was reported that this issue has been known for several months before the patches were released.
SSL has it’s limitations anyway there are published man in the middle attacks which can intercept and relay the certificates. But when a browser doesn’t check a certificate properly it makes it very vulnerable indeed to all sorts of attacks. There is no other security directly available to HTTP and standard web browsing, so this vulnerability is especially concerning. Ironically many people who use proxy and VPN relaying software to watch things like BBC iPlayer when out of the country like this are protected because the entire internet connection is encrypted anyway so even if the initial certificate is spoofed the rest of the data is inaccessible anyway.
Many people don’t take security very seriously, many of us simply fire up our browsers, web chats or smart phones to conduct our everyday business without giving it a second thought. It’s kind of an assumption that what we do on a computer or phone is private and accessible to only ourselves or the people we communicate with.
Well it’s simply not true, the vast majority of what we do in the digital world is although not quite in the public domain at least easily accessible for those with the desire to access that information. Our browsing history, emails, messaging are all easily accessible by default and using the mobile phone network is also by far from being secure.
In Turkey the Prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his son Bilal are finding out just how public these private conversations can be even over a supposedly encrypted phone line. The conversations that have been released come from a series of wiretaps over the Prime Minister’s phone line. The consist of discussions about how to move or hide large sums of money in response to some high level corruption investigations.
The recordings have been released online via some social networking sites, and despite Turkey blocking access to these sites when it suits them, they have now gone viral so there’s no chance for the Government to restrict access. In reality although Turkey do block lots of websites, it only in affect makes them more difficult to access – even when they blocked Facebook a couple of years ago people used these sorts of programs to access the social networking site.
Now the situation in Turkey is far from clear, with the Government insisting that the recordings have been created using a series of recordings in order to incriminate the Prime Minister. Whether they are true or not, the Prime Minister has had many previous allegations and enough opponents to make them a real threat to his power. The scandal is already affecting the Turkish Lira which is currently (26/02/13) falling against both the dollar and the Euro.
Of course the Prime Minister of a fairly divided country will have a few more enemies that most of us. But the issue does demonstrate how our communications are extremely vulnerable, the history of what we do online for example is extremely easy to access. Every web site you visit, every message you send or video you download, it’s all part of our digital history and can be accessed very easily.
You can of course, maintain a reasonable standard of privacy, by protecting your internet connection and encrypting your web access so that it is not for instance recorded at your ISP among many other places. People are beginning to use privacy software like this computer program – shown here.
The digital world has changed the way we communicate, that much is obvious. The internet, mobile phones and digital communication mean that location means very little now and there’s little chance of being incommunicado unless you really want to. This rise in different aspects of communication is bringing other issues into play though, one of the most important is that of privacy.
Take for example email, how private do you consider it? Who would you expect to have access to an email you wrote to a colleague or business associate. I would imagine most would expect the list to only contain the sender (you) and the recipient. However this is very unlikely to be the case as sending an email is one of the least private methods of communicating about in this modern world.
Some experts rate an email on a par with shouting across a crowded room as far as privacy goes. Whilst this is possibly a slight exaggeration, the analogy has a lot of merit. Your email contains no security by default, it’s written in clear text readable by anyone who comes across it. There is a large chance than some one will too, as the method of transport for an email is despatch through the hotpotch of shared routers and switches we know as the internet.
So your email will certainly be hoovered up by the PRISM project run by the NSA in the US. GCHQ has a similar data vacuum going on with network taps fitted to important pieces of fiber that relay the majority of UK internet traffic. Your emails main protection is pretty much obscurity, being lost in the millions that are sent every hour across the globe. But be aware that this data is stored, it is accessible and it’s certainly readable without any real issues. For further reading try starting here – how secure is my email.
It would certainly be advisable to use another communication method for important messages. If you require a certain element of privacy then you should certainly find another method or invest in some security for your emails. Check out companies like Entrust or PGP, most of the big guys now supply something that will at least encrypt your email in transit. There are highly secure online variants like the guys at Hushmail who encrypt and also don’t store clear text copies on their servers. You can also look at services which can individually encrypt different services on your computer like FTP, Web or Email, or specific applications – this video shows how.
The key of course is encryption, ensuring that your email is only readable by the intended recipient. This means that although your email will still be despatched through the internet ether, it at least won’t be readable by every router en route. There are issues of course of what happens when it gets to your recipient – how it’s stored and accessed for example but encrypting your message is a very strong start to ensuring your privacy.
There has been a lot of criticism over the last few months for a big change in the way that the UK teaches ICT. Everyone from Eric Schmidt from Google to the President of Eidos have been complaining about the lack of programming and digital skills our children have.
In some ways it’s the technology that is too blame, in my childhood we had the ZX81 and the BBC Micro. Both of wish did very little out of the box, you needed some basic knowledge of programming to get anything working. Nowadays you can unpack a laptop sign in to your version on Windows and start ’pointing and clicking’ within minutes. The digital world has expanded over the years but in some sense we have become distanced from how this stuff actually works.
My children use computers everyday, they do their homework, play games and bascially live on them. However they both have little knowledge about how they work. ICT seems to cover stuff like Word Processing, Spreadsheets and Design but little technical content. If I ask my children about proxy sites, like this site or what an IP address is and I’ll get a pretty blank look.
There is hope of course, educators seem to aware of the deficiencies and initiatives like the Raspberry Pi are bound to help. This little computer comes with an SD card a basic Linux operating system and two programming languages. It’s hoped this will help children engage with the underlying technology that makes our digital systems work. It’s being distributed to schools throughout the UK and maybe a generation of computer coders will follow in it’s path!
As the web grows, unfortunately there is another linked statistic on the rise too. The number of websites and resources which are restricted based on location is growing exponentially too. At first the restrictions were quite low, but slowly as sites become more and more important economically – we see advanced filtering technology being introduced to restrict access to certain locations. The technology behind these blocks is called Geo-targeting and has been around for years. It uses the same method that search engines use to make sure the results are tailored to your location. That is if I type in ’local plumbers’ into Google – I don’t get a list of plumbers on the opposite side of the planet.
There are ways around this and the technology to bypass these blocks is also developing fast. There are now many wonderful software applications which will hide your real location by routing your connection through a specific country. So if you want to watch BBC Iplayer from Sweden for instance you’d route your connection through a British server in order to watch online. The same concept is also used for sites like Pandora and Hulu which at the time of writing are US only. This was one of the problems with the initial applications – they centred mainly on the UK and US because of the popularity of those two sites.
However such is the growth of geotargeting that many people know need to change their online identity into other nationalities. The other day I watched a colleague visiting from Hamburg try in vain to access a German online news site and her bank account – she was blocked from both because she was trying to connect from a UK based connection. Fortunately for her, the company she worked for had supplied her with a German proxy list with all the corporate servers she could access when travelling. So all she needed to do was connect to one of those and the problem was sorted.
This is the difficulty, often you don’t know which country you’ll need from day to day – one day you might need a German IP address and then a British one . However if you’re considering investing in a service which provides access to a range of proxies then the minimum you should consider is probably UK, US and one in your home country for when you’re travelling.
The internet certainly has the capacity for change. It has the potential for political change, to overthrow dictators, implement social improvements and a myriad of other benefits. The problem as always is that many people are being put at a distinct advantage when using the web. It used to be irrelevent where you lived when online, however that is certainly not the case now. Many countries increasingly used filters or firewalls on their nations internet access. There are of course the extreme cases like North Korean and China where access is highly regulated and monitored. But on a lower level social sites like Facebook and Twitter are blocked in many other areas from time to time.
If it wasn’t bad enough now commercial barriers are being instigated in the form of geotargeting. This technology is used to deliver or restrict access dependent on where you are located just to stop people UK TV abroad – like this video. Companies like Hulu for example only want users based in America to access their content so if you try and watch from outside the USA you’ll get blocked. Even less commercial organisations are doing like the BBC who restrict access to the wonderful IPlayer to the United Kingdom.
Of course there are ways around it – this post for example illustrates a method to watch BBC Iplayer from anywhere - http://www.anonymous-proxies.org/2009/02/using-iplayer-abroad-viewing-bbc-via.html. But that method involved a subscription service which may well be unaffordable for a huge sector of the internet’s population. These restrictions stop open access, alllow companies to operate shady price discrimination mechanisms and basically just rip the heart out of the internet for many of us.
In the USA there are even more worrying actions – statutes being proposed like Protect IP act which would make web site owners liable for links and content put on their sites. Good luck on running a forum on free speech if that every gets though ! You’d spend more time at the local court defending yourself than running the site.

Keep in mind that you may not capture customer attention so you don’t have to send emails daily. Until the customers are exposed to your products or brands several times, then that is the right time that you send emails about your products often or even daily. You can touch base often but not so frequently because you might be annoying them. Bear in mind that before sending some emails to your customers, you need to make sure that you get permission from them or potential buyers before sending out.
It is true that there are customers don’t want to receive any emails especially if it only contains advertisements. Chances like this, people don’t want to receive emails like this would mark your emails as spam, delete it automatically without reading and even simply ignore you altogether and you would not like that to happen. Nyt Tag can broadly explain you the tips on how to successfully use email marketing to avoid the chance that you emails services could take you out of their system. You can treat reader like a relationship. You can ask them permission if they still allow you to send more after the first email. Tell them what discounts on the second email with your products and services, this would let them caught the attention. By the third email and after, you can follow through with the content you had promised to provide them with and never fail them.
If you have Nyt tag, graphics or images, you can put them on the left side of the email message, it entertains your recipients. Researched shows and documented that this location produces almost double the value and numbers of clicks to your products, websites and services than placing these elements anywhere else. Also, you need to make sure that your email subscribers would know exactly what they have to expect from your email. Make your first email to each new subscriber a default info message as this is an excellent way to do this. Indicate the frequency of message they would be expecting from you and layout what sort of content you send them. You can also post a version of your newsletter with animation and graphics on your website. This way, you can stop them from keeping your emails into spam folder and you would also encourage your audience to take time visiting your website.
It’s very annoying, no sooner have the best media sites in the world started putting their content online, than they start to restrict who can watch it. For those of us who travel a lot or spend time in different countries a great advantage has been snatched away. For instance all the best US media sites like Hulu, NBC and Pandora now block everyone who doesn’t connect from the USA. It’s the same across the world, European sites like M6 Replay and the BBC in the UK all block their content from being streamed outside the country.
It’s a practice called Geotargeting, which is being increasingly used across the internet. Basically when you connect to a web site, for instance Hulu – the web site will look up your IP address and see what country it is registered in. If you’re in the US then it will work, outside the US and you’ll get a little apology.
It’s also being used as a form of price discrimination technique, the practice of charging different prices in different countries to maximize their profits. It’s especially galling with online services such as Napster where the end product is almost identical but German users get charged a different price than US ones.
There are of course various ways to bypass these restrictions, they are mainly concerned with connecting through proxy servers. The idea is that when I’m in France, I can connect through a UK proxy server and trick the web page. It actually works very well form many sites, and I’ve been able to watch UK TV online without a problem, check this site out here for a video explaining the process - http://www.uktv-online.com/. Many sites are upgrading their detection though and often you’ll need more advanced systems like VPNs to avoid being blocked.
I think there will be a change soon in this phoney war between the blocks and the circumvention tools. Just as media producers are learning that by simply reducing their prices to reasonable levels reduces piracy by a huge amount, perhaps reasonable subscription levels will be introduced soon to sites like the BBC and Hulu. The important thing for me is that it’s done properyl with full unrestricted access and they don’t charge three times as much in one country just to maximise profits.
The words proxies, VPNs and SSL were once strictly in the vocabulary of IT support and programmers. There was no reason for us normal geeks to get involved in all that stuff, but alas those days have long gone. We’ve bought out laptops, PC and various mobile devices with the promise of streaming films and watching content on the go from anywhere. We can sit on the train and watch an episode of the Simpsons to kill the time or enjoy the climax of a Game of Thrones whilst enduring a tedious bus journey.
For a while it looked like that could happen, but although our devices have been getting smarter, the internet seems to be inexplicably be shrinking. Not in real quantity of course, I’m sure there are still millions of crap blogs and porn sites being created every minute of the day. But serious, proper media content is often being blocked depending on where you happen to be.
Last week I was enjoying a series of shows on a comedian and really starting to enjoy it. I got to the third one, and WTF - ’this content is not available in your area’ – was the reply I got. Since when did it matter where I was, I’m in the US, Land of the Free – why can’t I watch the damn video. But this is happening more and more, I used to be able to watch British TV online – not anymore, due to licensing restrictions blah, blah, blah,
Last month I had to travel to Europe for a week. A week stuck in a rubbish hotel just outside Frankfurt, no worries I thought – I have a subscription to Hulu and the wonderful Pandora, I’ll be ok. No chance both blocked as they both decided I was now a European because I’d left the country briefly. I even got blocked from accessing my online bank account because I might not be me but a German hacker. Crazy stuff, as Germans have way more money than I have anyway.
Here’s an example Video on YouTube about getting a Fake IP.
So this is why we need to know about these VPNs and proxies, to make the internet open again. We need them to mask our location so the licensing restrictions don’t completely control our online experience. I urge you to check them out, they’re easy to use and allow you to take control of your surfing again. If you want to watch Hulu, you can get a US address or perhaps watch the BBC then switch to a British IP address – like this site explains. It sounds a bit cheesy but they make you a citizen of the internet with the power to surf where and when you like.
