Headline May 19, 2015/ ''' THE LIVE-WIRES [OF] WIRELESS-WORLD '''



!WOW!  -the World Students Society Computers-Internet-Wireless, is owned by every single student in the world:

"One Share-Peace-Piece''  for every single one of you. Pick up the responsibility and join post haste to help build a better world. 

STUDENT ANAM KHAN, currently pursuing a Master's degree in Communication Practice at  ''Columbia University''  is taking sides with technology.  And states:

''In 2011, it was reported that the annual value of the retail market for surveillance tools increased from nearly, from nearly, zero in 2001 to approximately $5 billion a year.

This sudden increase in demand indicates that surveillance practices are on the rise. Unfortunately, these are not solely enforced by legitimate law enforcements.

There are, for instance, examples of governments that have utilized technology to monitor and censor their citizens.  

I am delighted to quote from her writings in this publishing, as she goes on to unleash some very budding work. .

IN AMERICA, the growing demand for high-speed service is good news for the economy. A white paper commissioned by the PCIA indicates that the wireless industry will generate 1.2 million new jobs.

Including 28,000 in the build-out of mobile broadband. But Adelstein says the wireless infrastructure industry has some  10,000  job openings, it cannot fill.

''FCIA is also helping to spearhead efforts to train the workforce needed to construct and maintain America's wireless networks,'' says Adelstein.

''We are currently facing a work force shortage, as our educational institutions haven't kept up with the growth of the wireless industry.

We need skilled workers to bring next-generation wireless service to every American regardless of geographic or economic circumstances".    

THERE ARE several opposing views regarding technology and how it has influenced the way people collaborate. In  Cognitive Surplus,  Clay Shirky explains:

How people are increasingly replacing television with mobile phones, computers and other Internet devices. He believes that people use the Internet to solve problems and make beneficial contributions to society.

Shirky outlines detailed scenarios where technology gave people a platform to participate in civic sharing and overcome complications related to politics. It is, however, difficult to take one stance when it comes to determining the impact of technology.

In his book, Shirky describes an online service called  Ushandi  to provide an example of how people use the Internet to collaborate and help one another during a time of political instability.

Ushandi was developed to help citizens keep track of ethnic violence during the December 2007 election period in Kenya. The Kenyan government banned mainstream media outlets from reporting on the violence.

Ory Okolloh, a Kenyan political activist, began blogging about the violence. She asked her readers to email or post comments about the hostilities they were witnessing.

Ushandi proved to be a helpful solution that gave people an opportunity to come together and share valuable information with one another.

Kenyan NGOs used Ushandi to locate areas that required humanitarian responses. This example supports the notion that problems, such as a lack of trust in political systems, can sometimes have technological solutions.

Shirky also draws attention to a time in 2008 when South Korean girls used a boy's band online bulletin board to voice their opposition against the South Korean market allowing US beef imports back in the country.

Several sources of beef in the US had been contaminated with mad cow disease.

According to Shirky, the site provides these girls an opportunity to discuss whatever they wanted, including politics. The website gave Korean youth a platform to coordinate protests centered on food safety.

Former President Lee Myung-Bak eventually negotiated additional restrictions on US beef imports.

Online collaboration, hence, gave Korea's youth a chance to alter a policy if found disagreeable.

Shirky continues his enthusiastic appraisal of technology by explaining that the Internet gave people an expansive platform to improve lives of other individuals.

He, however, does not touch on instances where technology has been used as a tool to disrupt people's lives in the most negative sense.

Right On, Anam Khan!
The Honour and Serving of the ''Operational Research'' continues. Thank you for reading, and maybe, learning.
