Hot NET CONTROL? >Google's 427 Secret Meetings @ US White House

REVEALED: Google Staffers Have Had at Least 427 Meetings at the White House Over Course of Obama Presidency - Averaging More Than One a Week

  • The White House's close relationship with Google was highlighted in data published Friday
  • Records show 169 Google employees met with 182 government officials
  • Google's top lobbyist paid 128 visits to the White House since 2009
  • 'Of course' Google is a frequent guest, company responded in statement
Daily Mail UK, 23 April 2016


Newly compiled data reveals Google and its affiliates have attended meetings at the White House more than once a week, on average, since President Barack Obama took office.


Numbers crunched by the Campaign for Accountability and the Intercept show 169 Google employees have met with 182 government officials in the White House.

The meetings took place at least 427 times. The data used spans from Obama's first month in office in 2009 until October 2015, and includes government meetings with representatives of Google-affiliated companies Tomorrow Ventures and Civis Analytics.





Data shows Google employees visited the White House at least 427 times between the time Obama took office and October 2015


The Google employee with the most visits is the company's head of public policy, Johanna Shelton, who paid the White House 128 visits.

The government's apparently cozy relationship with Google was brought up about a year ago by the;


Wall Street Journal.


In response to a story in the Journal titled 'Google Makes Most of Close Ties to White House,' the company responded: 'Of course we’ve had many meetings at the White House over the years.'

Google said topics discussed in the meetings ranged from patent reform, STEM education, and self-driving cars

& Internet censorship, smart contact lenses, and cyber security.


Friday's report in the Intercept came a week after Obama announced his support for a Federal Communications Commission plan that would make it easier for pay-TV customers to buy their own set-top boxes - a plan which an AT&T executive blasted as a 'Google proposal.'

'This will allow for companies to create new, innovative, higher-quality, lower-cost products,' the White House wrote in a blog post announcing the initiative.
END.

Hacker Internet Freedom Day: Massive Blackout Protests Killed 2 Anti-Piracy Bills

Internet Freedom Day: How Massive ‘Blackout’ Protests Killed Two Anti-Piracy Bills

Posted: 19 Jan 2017. TFreak





At the start of the decade several new bills were introduced in the United States, aiming to make it easier for copyright holders to enforce their rights online....



The proposals, including SOPA and PIPA, would’ve streamlined the shutting down of allegedly infringing domain names and threatened to increase liability for third party services, among other things.

Fearing broad Internet censorship, the proposals ignited a wave of protests led by various activist groups. But, what started as a small protest movement was swiftly elevated to mainstream news, when tech giants such as Google and Wikipedia joined in.

Exactly five years ago, following months of scattered protests, the opposition peaked into a massive Internet blackout campaign.


As a result, the balance of power tipped and Hollywood and the music industry were forced into retreat. Soon after the blackout, both bills were declared dead, a victory which is still frequently referenced today.


A year after the succesful blackout campaign, 18 January was declared Internet Freedom Day. While the first celebration attracted international news headlines, it’s now become a relatively small event.


Still, many of the concerns that were brought up half a decade ago remain relevant today. Site blocking efforts and domain name seizures are still high on the agenda, and the same is true for search engine ‘censorship’ and liability for ISPs and other third party services.

What has changed is that, instead of tackling these issues through legislation, rightsholders are now focusing on individual lawsuits and voluntary agreements.This means that for activists, Internet Freedom Day could still be relevant now, both as a remembrance and as a call to action. In any case, it’s worth noting that without the protests things could have been very different today.

Below are a few of the many ‘blackout’ pages that were up (or down) five years ago.



Wikipedia


Wikipedia was completely inaccessible for 24 hours, except the pages about censorship, PIPA and SOPA, of course.





Google


Blacked out its logo to protest PIPA/SOPA and added a link to a resource page where people could take action.






Reddit


Directed its users to a resource site where they could take action.





Imgur


The image sharing site offered information on the protests as well as steps to take action.






Demonoid


One of the largest BitTorrent communities at the time, went dark completely, with a nice spotlight effect.





Firefox


Firefox users were welcomed with a dark themed default homepage, alerting people about the looming PIPA/SOPA threats.





Craigslist


The online classified advertisements portal directed the public to a resource site where they could take action.






WordPress


Joined the protest too, and decided to censor itself for the day.






Minecraft


Protested as well, but in red with the tagline “PIPA & SOPA, How About NOPA.”






TorrentFreak


Yes, TF also took part, giving readers the option to save the Internet, or… Meh…




END....



NB;

The Un-United States of America Must NOT Be Allowed to Control
the Internet.... OR THE WORLD!!!

"In History EVERY Great Empire Has Fallen > The U.S. Will Be Next"....


Congrats to All Those Sites for Fighting Back.....
