We the People. Obama vetoes in Internet censorship: Internet must remain the Kingdom of freedom. And Philae.

Philae, the Art of Posing and of Move(ment).

The World is celebrating the sophisticated Philae mission landing on a comet. Praise the Lord. All eyes are up to the Skies to watch Technology Power and Elegance of Gesture. In one word, the Art of Pose.

The past vs the Future. The Nasa has applauded the move. In France, people gathered at la Villette housing a City of Sciences to see the birth of a Star named Philae. Far away from the trash shooting grotesque cobra’s mouth style offered Eartling as ass’ future. Go to Africa to see the past tense of what the fake contemporain art is proposing here as the future. I’m talking about authenticity.

Incorporated and engulfed in the mouth of the Cobra, Art has failed its project and ambition. Technology is winning on art. Definitely.

Watch some images of a Cobra here. Terrific.

Prior to the landing of Philae, Obama vetoes in Internet censorship called by Powerful Corporations and Institutions to cheat on the System and abuse their power in free fall. Democracy is firing back. Here is an excerpt of what president Obama has to say on Net neutrality.  Right now, you can pay Google through Adwords to get your publications ranking high and coming first on top of the online research. Those corps and institutions are paying to benefit this privilege. But, it is never enough to them. They  want all and more and more and more. The Cobra-style reproducing itself genetically. From the press to the shooting : trash or corruption reign.

President Obama. When I was a candidate for this office, I made clear my commitment to a free and open Internet, and my commitment remains as strong as ever. Four years ago, the FCC tried to implement rules that would protect net neutrality with little to no impact on the telecommunications companies that make important investments in our economy. After the rules were challenged, the court reviewing the rules agreed with the FCC that net neutrality was essential for preserving an environment that encourages new investment in the network, new online services and content, and everything else that makes up the Internet as we now know it. Unfortunately, the court ultimately struck down the rules — not because it disagreed with the need to protect net neutrality, but because it believed the FCC had taken the wrong legal approach.

The FCC is an independent agency, and ultimately this decision is theirs alone. I believe the FCC should create a new set of rules protecting net neutrality and ensuring that neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online. The rules I am asking for are simple, common-sense steps that reflect the Internet you and I use every day, and that some ISPs already observe. These bright-line rules include:

  • No blocking.If a consumer requests access to a website or service, and the content is legal, your ISP should not be permitted to block it. That way, every player — not just those commercially affiliated with an ISP — gets a fair shot at your business.
  • No throttling.Nor should ISPs be able to intentionally slow down some content or speed up others — through a process often called “throttling” — based on the type of service or your ISP’s preferences.
  • Increased transparency.The connection between consumers and ISPs — the so-called “last mile” — is not the only place some sites might get special treatment. So, I am also asking the FCC to make full use of the transparency authorities the court recently upheld, and if necessary to apply net neutrality rules to points of interconnection between the ISP and the rest of the Internet.
  • No paid prioritization.Simply put: No service should be stuck in a “slow lane” because it does not pay a fee. That kind of gatekeeping would undermine the level playing field essential to the Internet’s growth. So, as I have before, I am asking for an explicit ban on paid prioritization and any other restriction that has a similar effect.

If carefully designed, these rules should not create any undue burden for ISPs, and can have clear, monitored exceptions for reasonable network management and for specialized services such as dedicated, mission-critical networks serving a hospital. But combined, these rules mean everything for preserving the Internet’s openness.
