Een opmerkelijke petitie over culturele vervlakking en ongewenste inmenging door Amerikaanse webbedrijven zet het Vlaamse internetwereldje al enkele dagen in rep en roer. In een tegenpetitie wordt het anti-Amerikanisme afgekraakt, een advocaat in Stanford stipt de gaten in de Europese wetgeving aan en minister Vincent Van Quickenborne waarschuwt voor overregulering. Een blogger haalt er in een humoristische bui zelfs McDonalds bij.

The service provider said it needed to sever the contract in order to maintain services to its other customers. Nonetheless, problems with Wikileaks’ DNS — as well as recent domain seizures by Homeland Security — point to the second major weak link in the open Internet: the domain name system. The DNS, or Domain Name System, is one of the foundational elements of the Internet, responsible for translating the numbers in IP addresses to the more human-friendly names. And Wikileaks has struggled to keep its site up, having to move from to to as various countries have put pressure on both local DNS providers as well as on ICANN the international body that manages the registration of top level domains.

There have a number of suggestions recently to address this centralized control, most notably a proposal by Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde to work towards the development of an alternative P2P DNS, one that would be decentralized and distributed.

Hector has decided to invest this bounty into hacking tools and devices for a group of people he works with closely (e.g. iPhone Dev Team members, Wii hacker team Team Twiizers, and a few others). They don’t have much expendable income to buy tools and devices to hack, and sometimes this hobby can be a bit expensive, this will be a good investment that will allow them to hack more and newer devices.

In the discussion over yesterday's post, a few people tweeted that the U.K. government's public data website is mostly populated with 'Open Data' and not 'Linked Data.' But what does that mean? It means that much of the data on the site is available to the public, but it doesn't link to other data sources on the Web. It could be data that has been uploaded in CSV format (i.e. spreadsheet data), which Sir Tim Berners-Lee said in an interview with me last year is a common occurrence with government departments. Or it could be data in another non-Web format.

I sat down for a conversation with Ville Vesterinen ( @vesterinen) — co-founder and editor of the ArcticStartup blog — last week while he was visiting from Helsinki.
