Report Says EU ISPs Are Happily Ignoring Net Neutrality Rules – TechDirt
A few years ago, the European Union passed some fairly decent net neutrality rules that went notably further than the FCC's 2015 rules we just discarded here in the States. They not only prohibited ISPs from unjustly blocking, throttling, or restricting access to services the ISP may compete with, they imposed some basic protections governing zero rating -- a practice ISPs here in the US have increasingly been using anti-competitively.
The problem for the EU is that after the European Union's Body of European Regulators of Electronic Communications (BEREC) crafted the guidelines, it was up to individual countries to interpret and enforce them, something that apparently hasn't been going all that well. According to a new coalition of 45 academics, nonprofits, and private companies, European ISPs are routinely tap dancing around the restrictions. Under the current rules, European ISPs are allowed to inspect and shape traffic using "deep packet inspection" (DPI) tech...

Only 4% of people trust what influencers say online – The Drum
Most global internet users lack confidence in what they see and read online, with only 8% believing that the bulk of information shared on social media is true, dropping to 4% when it comes from influencers.
The figures come from media agency UM, which found just a tiny minority of internet users agreed that the 'three-quarters or more' of the insight they gleaned from platforms like Facebook and Instagram was correct.
On the same measurement, even governments were seen as more trustworthy than most celebrity influencers or bloggers/vloggers, with 12% of people globally saying information shared by governments was 'mostly truthful'.
However, people in the UK and US were more cynical, with these numbers falling to 8% and 6% in those regions respectively.
UM tracked more than 56,000 active internet users across 81 countries for its 10th annual 'Wave 9' study, evaluating trust in social media.
The global suspicion around influencers comes as consumers and ...

Google says data is more like sunlight than oil, one day after being fined $57 million over its privacy and consent practices – Silicon Alley
Google's chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, said on Tuesday that data is more like sunlight than oil.
It's an upbeat twist on the phrase "data is the new oil," which implies information is finite.
Porat said Google was using data for positive developments, like diagnosing breast cancer.
Her comments at the World Economic Forum came one day after Google was hit with a $57 million fine by French authorities over its data-collection practices.
Google wants to popularize a more upbeat way of describing data: It's more like sunlight than oil.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday morning, Google's chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, said that "data is more like sunlight than oil," adding, "It is like sunshine — we keep using it, and it keeps regenerating."
It's a twist on the well-known phrase "data is the new oil," meaning the world's most valuable resource is information rather than petroleum.
