Here are my suggestions for the third travelogue…
1) I’d like to dig deeper into the of surveillance tools and digital censorship. I am quite perplexed by a device developed by Cisco called Service Control Engine (isn’t that already an evil name? ) that allows to filter content. It’s no surprise that China is a major client, so one way of addressing the topic would be examining the role of companies in the construction of China’s Golden Shield. However, no need to go to the other side of the globe: could Peer-to-Peer blocking be legalized in the United States? Companies like Comcast have already been accused of deliberatly degrading Peer-to-Peer broadband traffic…This calls for a follow-up!
2) The saga continues! No decision was taken last Thursday at the highly anticipated federal hearing that sought to settle a legal dispute over Google’s plans to digitize millions of books. As the hearings take place in New York, I’d like to cover the case that will certainly write history.
What do you think? Thanks for your feedback!
