The unprecedented corporate power grab known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal could be headed for a possible vote in Congress later this year. But thanks to the work of thousands of CREDO activists, whether it has enough support to pass is still an open question.

Unfortunately, the TPP just got a major boost from some of the largest and most well-known internet companies. A trade association representing companies including Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, and Yahoo just announced their full support of the TPP.1,2

This is outrageous. The TPP is antithetical to the interests of internet users. Furthermore, many of these companies pride themselves on putting the rights and interests of their users first and claim that principles such as free speech and privacy are at the core of their mission. TPP directly undermines those values in favor of corporate profit.

Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, and Yahoo don’t have to go along with the Internet Association’s disastrously poor decision to endorse the TPP. One of its members, Reddit, has just come out and disavowed the endorsement.3 This is why we are joining with our friends from Fight for the Future to pressure other members to do the same.

The TPP was written and negotiated in absolute secrecy, and it’s easy to see why. It would eviscerate broad swaths of regulations that protect consumers, workers, the environment, and the soundness of our financial system. And it would set up a global system where corporate profits trump the policy priorities of sovereign governments.

Passage of the TPP could mean more American jobs offshored, developing countries losing access to lifesaving medications, and unsafe foods and products pouring into our country. The deal includes countries that are notorious for human rights violations without once mentioning “human rights” in its 5,600 pages.

The deal could also mean the end of internet freedom as we know it. It would expand corporate copyright enforcement at the expense of privacy and free speech. It would criminalize tinkering and modifying products under fair use purposes. And it would allow corporations to avoid the legal and democratic process by using secretive international tribunals to attack internet users’ rights – the same tribunals that could be used to undermine environmental and consumer protections.

The members of the Internet Association have no obligation to support this wrongheaded endorsement of the TPP. And, fortunately, many of these companies would be extremely sensitive to a backlash from their own users. After all, companies like Facebook and Twitter wouldn’t have a product if it weren’t for their users’ ability to freely express themselves and create content on a daily basis.

With the media currently focused on the corrupt practices of corporations revealed in the release of the Panama Papers,4 we have the opportunity to shine the spotlight on how the TPP is just another attempt by corporations to skirt domestic and international law.

If we can get these major internet companies to publicly reject the TPP, as Reddit just did, we can turn this pathetic and self-defeating endorsement into exactly the opposite: A major public statement against the TPP and the corporate power grab it represents.

DSPL Tools is a small suite of command-line utilities designed to help generate, organize, and validate DSPL datasets. The suite currently includes the following components:

  • DSPL Check: Checks a dataset against a variety of criteria including adherence to the official DSPL schema, consistency of internal references, and CSV layout.
  • DSPL Gen: Generates a simple, DSPL dataset “template” from an input CSV file

This software is released under a BSD license; the full source code is available for browsing and download on the DSPL open source site. Release notes are provided in the DSPL Tools README file.


DSPL Developer Guide

DSPL stands for Dataset Publishing Language. It is a representation format for both the metadata (information about the dataset, such as its name and provider, as well as the concepts it contains and displays) and actual data of datasets. Datasets described in this format can be imported into the Google Public Data Explorer, a tool that allows for rich, visual exploration of the data.

Note: To upload data to Google Public Data using the Public Data upload tool, you must have a Google Account.

This document is intended for data owners who want their content to be available in the Public Data Explorer. It goes beyond the Tutorial by diving deeper into the details of the DSPL schema and supported features. Only a basic familiarity of XML is assumed, although knowledge of relational databases is also useful.

Although not a requirement, we suggest reading through the Tutorial, which is shorter and easier to digest, before looking at this document.

Professor Noam Chomsky visits Google Cambridge to answer the following questions from Googlers:

1. Your early view of the potential abuse of the Internet as a political medium seemed to convey a wait and see attitude. How has your view evolved and where do you think the balance of power is headed?2:43

2. What is the most interesting insight the science of Linguistics has revealed but that the public at large seems not to know about or appreciate? 13:00

3. In “Hopes and Prospects” you mention your colleague Kenneth Hale and his work with Native Americans. In your opinion, how important is the problem of language extinction? That is, how important is it – for humanity to preserve the current level of linguistic diversity? 18:03

4. Can you comment on the contribution of research in statistical natural language processing to linguistics? 30:00

5. What, in your opinion, are the most effective strategies for building a more just and peaceful world? And in your view, what are the most significant takeaways from Occupy, the Arab Spring, and the Ukrainian “Euromaidan” uprising? 35:11

El Samsung Galaxy Ace se encuentra por debajo de la línea de rango del Galaxy S en la gama de smartphones de Samsung con Android, y tiene una terminación muy bonita, con un aspecto de primera calidad, gracias a su acabado de alto brillo y por la tira metálica que tiene en los bordes. El Samsung Galaxy Ace funciona con Android 2.2, que es lo habitual en los teléfonos Android actuales, aunque la versión 2.3 (Gingerbread) habría sido la fresa del pastel. Como de costumbre, Samsung ha cubierto Android con su propia interfaz de usuario, TouchWiz 3.0, para hacer la experiencia más amigable para el usuario. TouchWiz añade varias mejoras a la cruda experiencia de Android, incluyendo una integración más estrecha con los contactos de tus redes sociales.

La pantalla LCD en el Ace tiene un buen tamaño de 3,5 pulgadas, que es apropiado para este nivel de precio, aunque en este rango de precio, el HTC Desire tiene una pantalla algo mayor, de 3,7 pulgadas. La resolución de pantalla es de 320 x 480 píxeles.

El resto del hardware en el Samsung Galaxy Ace es decididamente de gama media también. El procesador de 800 MHz no se queda atrás, pero la memoria interna de 158MB limita el número de aplicaciones que se pueden almacenar. La memoria se puede ampliar hasta 32 GB con una tarjeta de memoria, pero aún así sería bueno tener más memoria integrada en el propio dispositivo. La batería de 1350mAh es suficiente, pero los teléfonos Android realmente gastan mucha pila y hubiera sido bueno haber visto a una batería más potente en el Ace.

Sin embargo, este Samsung es un teléfono de gran alcance con muchas características, incluyendo un reproductor de música, radio FM con RDS, GPS asistido con Google Maps, además de acceso a la gama completa de aplicaciones desde el Android Market. La conectividad cumple todos los requisitos, con Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB y un conector para auriculares de 3,5 mm. Hay un acceso rápido a Internet HSDPA también en una red 3G. Navegar por la Web es una experiencia bastante buena, con la combinación de un procesador rápido, acceso rápido de datos y una pantalla de buen tamaño. Aquí una vez más, sin embargo, la resolución de pantalla es algo limitada y los textos pueden ser algo difíciles de leer, como en muchos teléfonos Android.
