In that light the debate over encryption doesnt seem like a tailored response to the threat but rather something law enforcement have been trying to pursue for sometime said Andy Sellars a fellow at Harvard Law Schools Berkman Center for Internet and Society.
The Internet is designed to be decentralized says Andy Sellars a fellow at the Harvard Law School Cyberlaw Clinic. Its designed to be that no single power could deny its use. Thats served the Internet quite well because its allowed it to grow in unexpected ways.
David Weinberger, a senior researcher at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and an author who focuses on the impact of technology on ideas, apparently agrees:
“The academic in me says that discourse norms have shifted,” said Susan Benesch, a faculty associate at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society and the director of the Dangerous Speech Project, an effort to study speech that leads to violence. “It’s become so common to figuratively walk through garbage and violent imagery online that people have accepted it in a way. And it’s become so noisy that you have to shout more loudly, and more shockingly, to be heard.”
Cambridge, Massachusetts is a hub of technological innovation influenced by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where academic and technological collaboration fuels the tech industry in Massachusetts.
Nathan Freitas is a fellow at the Berkman Centre for Internet and Society at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. He argues it’s precisely during states of emergency when open Wi-Fi is at its most useful, especially when the regular cellphone networks are down.
Bruce Schneier, a security technologist and a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, tells CBS MoneyWatch that social media is an “immense power” because the list of delinquent customers could show if someone searched online for one of those customers’ names. For example, an employer could decide not to hire a job candidate after encountering his or her name on Senga’s list.
“This is a huge deal,” said Bruce Schneier, a security technologist and a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Security. “You are dealing with this immense power. When someone searches for you, it shows up. How do we deal with that?”He added, “The issue isn’t whether people are deadbeats and should pay. The issue is whether the punishment fits the crime.” For instance, a potential employer could search for one of those cable customers singled out by the cable company, and decide not to hire the candidate because of the posting. “Now you’ll lose your career and your life because you didn’t pay your cable bill,” Schneier said.
