Its funny because when I tried to research more information on Net Neutrality I went to wikipedia which stated, Berners-Lee was in favor of Net Neutrality. So I immediately went to a new site and found an article on the guardian:
Berners-Lee told the meeting that “every customer should be able to access every service, and every service should be able to access every customer … The web has grown so fast precisely because we have had two independent markets, one for connectivity, and the other for content and applications.”
I agree with Tim Berners-Lee statement that customers should not be blocked from certain sites since they are paying for it.
After a little research on net neutrality I found that it really comes down to money. For instance, ISP has tried to charge BBC for the huge amount of data transferred over their networks because ISPs have to pay for carriage of data from BT’s core network to customers. Therefore, ISPs will be out of money when people’s demand for data grows.
With all of this said, I definitely agree with Berners-Lee that net neutrality is a kind of human networking right.
Which technological advancement has improved the quality of your life?
Cell phones has definitely helped me to improve the quality of my life by keeping in contact with others especially since I am in college and most of my family and friends are 4,000 miles away from me.
Which technological advancement has damaged the quality of your life?
I would have to say that the world wide web has some what damaged the quality of my life. Yes there are advantages but sometimes disadvantages. For instance, spending to much time on Social networks instead of communicating with others face-to-face has probably lowered my communication skills.

I spotted this poor lady initially on Thanksgiving Day looking for work as I was leaving the York Road Shopping Center in Baltimore (http://g.co/maps/2ymdz). I felt so helpless and guilty because she wasn’t asking for money, but for a steady job. It was beyond me. It was especially sad because this was someone who should be enjoying retirement, but can’t.
The next day, I thought to take a picture of her and her sign to post it online to have her exposed to more people. When I went to find her though, she wasn’t there.
I was in the area today, and coincidentally, there she was: Still asking for help as cars were exiting the plaza. I finally approached her and asked if I could snap a picture so I can put her ad online in the hopes that someone out there would be able to find something for her.
So, here it is.
