Headline Oct. 20/ ''' *TEACHINGS* OF TECHNOLOGY '''


QUIET PLEASE,...... QUIET PLEASE :  The Technology giants, the world over,  are facing a growing backlash, just as !WOW! begins it meteoric growth curve......

''THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY  : should be an important part of every and each student's life : And that's an enormous global responsibility:

And one that  - *the present fleeting hosts Proud Pakistan*-  and its super students, grandparents, parents, leaders, professors and teachers should *take very, very seriously*''.

Merium? Rabo? Haleema? Dee? ZainabArmeenEman? Seher? Sarah? Iqra? Iqsa? Hussain? Ali? Faraz? Shahrayar

Ibrahim? Umair? Awais Khattak? HaiderOmerWajahatAdil? Mustafa? Ahsen? Zaeem? Hazeem?

*Is every school, college. and university on the World Students Society? Are they reading Sam Daily Times in every class? Are students considering composing content for the whole world?* 
ON THE ENTIRE PLANET :  -in the entire planet,  the ground is already shifting, as the world begins to perceive and understand-

That  *The World Student Society* most lovingly and respectfully called !WOW! -the world over, is truly Neutral, is designed to be truly Neutral.

Every voice is heard : Leaders, Grandparents, Parents, Students, Professors, Teachers and the good Lord's total creations : without fear and without favor.
IN THE YEARS  AHEAD, someday, in not too distant a future, millions by billions of students will flock to cast their vote, and use !WOW! -for the highest good, all in the service of mankind.

Totally reciprocal, totally unlike Justin Rosenstein, a former Facebook engineer, who was recently portrayed in a recent Guardian story as an apostate : Noting that sometimes inventor's have regrets, he said-

And he had programmed his new iPhone to not let him  use the social network.

Mr. Rosenstein,  a co-founder of Asana,  an office-productivity start-up, said in an email that he had blocked not just Facebook but also Safari and Chrome browsers, Gmail and other applications.

I realized that I spent a lot time mindlessly interacting with my phone in ways that aren't serving me,'' he wrote. ''Facebook is a very powerful tool that I continue to use every day, just with more mindfulness.''

What is different today are the warnings from the technologists themselves. ''The monetization and manipulation of information is swiftly tearing us apart, '' Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay, wrote in the past week.

If social media is on the defensive, Mr. Zuckerberg  is particularly on the spot- a rare event in the in a golden career that has made him, at 33, one of the richest and most influential people on the planet.

''We have a saying : Move fast and break things, he wrote in his 2012 manifesto. ''The idea is that if you never break anything, you're probably not moving fast enough.''

Facebook dropped that motto two years later, but critics say too much of the implicit arrogance has lingered. Mr.Galloway, whose new book  ''The Four,'' analyzes the power of  Facebook, Amazon, Google and Apple, said the social network was still fumbling its response.

''Zuckerberg and Facebook are violating the No : 1 rule of crisis  management : Overcorrect for the problem,'' he said. ''Their attitude is that anything that damages their profits is impossible for them to do.''

Joel Kaplan, Facebook's vice president of global public policy, said the network was doing its best.

''Facebook is an important part of many people's lives,'' he said. ''That's an enormous responsibility   -and one that we take incredibly seriously.''

Some social media entrepreneurs acknowledge that they are confronting issues they never imagined as employees of start-ups struggling to survive.

''There wasn't time to think through the repercussions of everything we did,'' Biz Stone, a Twitter co-founder, said in an interview shortly before he joined the service last spring.

He maintained that Twitter was getting an unfair rap : ''For every bad thing, there are a thousand good things.'' He acknowledged, however, that some times ''it gets a little messy.''

Despite the swell of criticism, the vast majority of livestock, consumers and regulators seem not to have changed their behavior. People still eagerly await the new iPhone. Facebook has more than two billion users.

In Europe, however, the ground is already shifting. Google's share of the search engine market there is 92 percent, according to the StatCounter, and the European union fined it $2.7 billion in June by putting its products above those of its rivals.

A German law that fines social networks huge sums for not taking down hate speech went into effect this month.

On Tuesday, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain said the government was looking ''carefully at the roles, responsibility and legal status'' of  Google and Facebook, with an eye on regulating them as news publishers rather than platforms.

For some tech companies, the new power is a heavy weight. Cloudflare, which provides many sites with essential protection from hacking, made its first editorial decision in August : 

It lifted its protection from The Daily Stormer, basically expunging the neo Nazi site from the visible web.

''Increasingly tech companies are going to be put into the position of making these sorts of judgments,''  said Matthew Prince, Cloudflare's chief executive.

The picture is likely to get even more complicated. 

Mr. Prince Foresees several dystopian futures. One is where very search engine has a political point of view and users gravitate toward the one they feel most comfortable with. That would further balkanize the Internet.

Another possibility is the opposite extreme : Under the pressure of regulation, all hate speech -and eventually all dissent -is filtered out.

''People are realizing that technology isn't neutral.'' Mr. Prince said. ''I used to travel to Europe to hear these fears. Now I just have to go to Sacramento.'' 

With most respectful dedication to every human in the world, Leaders, Grandparents, Parents,  Professors and Teachers of the World. See Ya all on !WOW! -the World Students Society and-

Twitter-!E-WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011:

''' A Turbulent World '''

Good Night and God Bless

SAM Daily Times - the Voice of the Voiceless
