    1. Title: Data centres need more space in Frankfurt

      Frankfurt is the major European data hub, with more than 60 data centres covering 64 hectares.

      One of the main reasons for this high concentration of data centres is the proximity of the main Internet exchange hub in Frankfurt, which processes most of the European internet traffic.

      Fast expansion of data hubs triggered reaction of local authorities. In the new urbanist plan, they would like to restrict space for data centres. As you can see from the enclosed article, this proposal triggered a reaction from the German Datacenter Association arguing, among others, that the restriction for the growth of data centres could endanger digitalisation processes in Germany.

    1. The recently enacted Data Security Law (DSL) and Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) reinforce these risks. Articles 4 and 5 of the DSL state that the effort to guarantee data security must adhere to the party-state’s “comprehensive state security outlook,” and that the “central state security leading mechanism” is “responsible for decision-making and overall coordination on data security work, and researching, drafting, and guiding the implementation of national data security strategies and relevant major guidelines and policies.”1

      need to be analysed in more details.

    1. This article provides a good survey of the failure of Facebook's 'monetary' experiments starting with Libra and followed by Diem.

      Facebook dropped the 'digital currency' project. Probably, they thought that this part of 'regulatory battle' could weaken them in other 'battles' around anti-trust, data, consumer protection.

      In particular, it could weaken their chances for the success of Metaverse project which is Facebook's ultimate battle for survival.

      Libra development was historical moment in Internet governance and digital policy since it was the first major occasion when tech platforms were not allowed to use 'ex post' approach (develop and regulate later on). This time regulators stopped them 'ex ante'.

    1. Too often we get carried away by short-term thinking and the prospect of rapid gain. We need to rediscover asense of anticipation and the awareness that fate may strike at any moment.

The proper management of this data is of paramount importance. This is why Switzerland is proud to be hostingthe next UN World Data Forum in Bern in October

    1. Much of the other work involves setting standards for datasets that are not uniform between different entities and provinces. This would allow them to be more easily used on new data exchanges such as the one recently launched in Beijing that aims to allow companies to trade anonymous proprietary data -- effectively a pilot for a national data trading system

      Rules for the governance of data is a key motivation of the Chinese government crackdown on companies. While proposals to nationalise companies' datasets have met criticism, an idea that is gaining traction is the possibility to establish a trading system for data between companies. ||JovanK||
