Opinion | American leadership could save what is left of the global Internet

Even in many open democratic societies, there is talk of “data sovereignty” and moves to clamp down on U.S. companies and the sharing of data. In Europe, regulators and courts have thrown into doubt the free flow of data between the European Union and the United States. Many other countries are actively working on plans to impose “data localization,” requiring citizens’ data to be stored domestically and placing significant limits on the flow of data across borders.

This desire for greater sovereignty is natural and understandable. Policymakers are grappling with legitimate concerns about the rules that govern content and the use of data at scale. They are also debating the proper size and power of global tech companies. Hovering above these issues is a fundamental question: What do we want the Internet to be?

This is where the Biden administration comes in. An opportunity exists for U.S. leadership to create

The Remarkable Story of NDN Sports, A Website Dedicated to The Native American Athlete

Tyler Jones has a voice that was meant to tell stories. Assertive with the twang of a regional accent, it’s hard not to get wrapped up in whatever he is saying. For most of his still-unfolding career, however, he has been listening to others tell their own respective stories.

His success is owed to his unrelenting passion for the craft and a work ethic that sees him regularly pull 60 hours of work a week. It’s also thanks to an outlet that provides a platform dedicated to Native American athletes and the reporters who tell their stories.

NDN Sports, a clever gramogram that when said out loud explains the drive and mission of this website.

Back when he was 18, Jones was just out of high school and ready to cut his teeth as a reporter. The first gig he ever got for NDN Sports was a pretty big one.

Despite the best efforts of certain institutions that have thrown resources into remote education, community stewardship and digital programming, American museums have been struggling hugely this year. In July, the American Alliance of Museums predicted that a third of all United States museums may close for good, leading to an additional loss of 242,000 jobs unless institutions get urgent federal support. This week, an updated report from the AAM revealed further disturbing statistics: according to its conducted survey, 67% of the museums that responded have had to cut back on education, programming, and other public services due to budget shortfalls associated with the pandemic.

At a time when museums are being called to provide those stuck at home with educational programming, they’re being forced to slash public services. This is a

Here’s how feasible it is for American tech workers to move to Europe

  • With all the difficulties of 2020 including a divisive election, tech founders and employees may be understandably nervous about issues like immigration, tax policy, and America’s political climate.
  • Some may be thinking about looking elsewhere to work and live such as Europe.
  • Most European countries are eager to attract top talent from across the world, an immigration lawyer tells us, but the pandemic makes moving there more complicated.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

American woman creates special website to honour Covid-19 victims – it s viral

It broke Jessica Murray’s heart that so many people in the St. Louis area were dying from the coronavirus and that they were being remembered less for who they were than as statistics of the pandemic, so she decided to do something about it.

In June, Murray began the website stlouiscovidmemorial.com to honour lives lost to Covid-19. She mostly relies on information she can glean online, including from obituaries and other news stories about the dead. Her site and Facebook page serve as memorials to the area’s pandemic victims, providing glimpses into their lives and deaths.

Murray, 40, typically works a couple hours a night on her laptop at the dining room of her duplex in St. Louis’ Dutchtown neighbourhood, often with her cockatoos Boo, Arthur and Misha providing comfort nearby when the stories overwhelm her.

“Just thinking about what the families are going through, it’s heartbreaking,” Murray said. “No
