  • MIT-CAM Communications Institute: multi-disciplinary collaboration between MIT, Cambridge, UCL and the Oxford Internet Institute economists, engineers, lawyers, social and computer scientists, which seeks to see how the impact of disruptive technologies can be factored into the communications and computing business arena, and comprehended by regulators and other government agencies.WARW has research centers like CAGE(based in the Department of Economics at Warwick) and has been established to focus research on how markets, institutions and public policies interact to create and sustain successful economic performance and to investigate the circumstances in which economic success is conducive to reductions in deprivation and enhanced well-being

  • In a few years….EINS Kick-off Meeting Brussels, December 21-22, 2011
  • To think about… Does Internet have side effects on society? Artificialisation or externalisation of human memory (Murata 11)  organisational databases and the Web are now considered to substitute a large part of human memory  eternal, unambiguous human memory relies outside human brains, continually updated by electronic surveillance systems, relentlessly used for providing personalised services by business organisations and for public security and safety and people’s reliable livelihoods by public organisations. Is the future of people an extension of the past? Is there a bright side of forgetting? Why should we loose the right to forget/be forgotten? EINS Kick-off Meeting Brussels, December 21-22, 2011
  • Opinions… “If we fail to establish the right to appropriate forgetting/being forgotten, it would become difficult for us to construct our own identity and narrative at our discretion” (Ricoeur 2000) “Our most creative and conceptual thinking often emerged from the complexity of the connections among the memories stored in our mind. Biological memory is the seat of the unique self as well as the foundation of a rich culture. If we outsource our memory to external databases, we begin to destroy that foundation” (Carr 2010) “Thanks to the Total Recall Revolution we will soon be able to be released from the fate of forgetting and thereby live an affluent and happy life in a humane manner” (Bell and Gemmel 2009 - the MyLifeBits project (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/ mylifebits/) at Microsoft advocate the advantages and benefits of recording one’s entire life digitally) EINS Kick-off Meeting Brussels, December 21-22, 2011
  • To think about… Has Internet changed the pure nature of interpersonal and group processes? the ease of electronic communication may lead to weaker social ties (Tyler 2002)  people have less reason to leave their homes and actually interact face to face with other people.  The Internet allows people to more easily work from their home, to form and sustain friendships and even romantic attachments from their home, to bank from their home, to vote and engage in political and social issue based discussions with others (from home). The psychological quality of Internet social interaction is lower than the psychological quality of traditional face-to-face interaction (McKenna 2000) Internet Dating, a $2bn business already breaking cultural, social and geographic barriers  Many cases of online relationships resulted in long-term relationships and marriages EINS Kick-off Meeting Brussels, December 21-22, 2011
  • To think about… Why Internet Dating is such a successful business?  The variety of options is almost limitless  No taboos and misconceptions for people in the Internet  No restrain factors in the meeting process  The initiative can be grasped easily  Ease of expression due to a certain degree of anonymity  Can act as an auxiliary remedy for those who have a tight schedule to cover their social needs  There is a filtering process to meet users’ preferences  Cost-effective and emotionally saved solution EINS Kick-off Meeting Brussels, December 21-22, 2011
  • To think about…. Why all these techno-legal battles?  Facebookvs Google  Europe vsFacebook Personal data gathered in the Internet is the new marketing gold standard  Facebook’s recent attack on Google shows just how precious and coveted such social data is Facebook has information on over 600 million users, rolling in data wealth. EINS Kick-off Meeting Brussels, December 21-22, 2011
  • To think about… Europe vsFacebook:  Transparency is not only a question of fairness but it is also a principle of European data protection law. It is time that the biggest social network worldwide sticks to these legal principles.  Every person in the EU has the right to access all the data that a company is holding about him/her.  Users have to deal with vague and contradictory privacy policies and cannot fully estimate the consequences of using facebook.  Initiative wants to make facebook more transparent and show every user which data facebook is holding about him/her.
