    1. It appears that the DNS is the only remaining part left of the “glue” that holds the Internet together and is now the defining medium of what is “the Internet.”

      ||VladaR|| It is important for getting web 3 right in the context of (de)centralisaton narratives which are often very manipulative. Currently the only tech-centralisaton element is DNS. But, does it make the Internet distributive. No, you have de facto centraliation on the usability level (concentration of data).

    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. the U.S. government passed a sweeping cybersecurity bill called the Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2020 at the very tail end of that year. The law is a more flexible and adaptable approach to cybersecurity than previous laws. Crucially, it requires the National Institute of Standards and Technology to establish best practices that other government agencies must then follow when purchasing IoT devices. The initial rules unveiled by NIST in 2021 include requiring an over-the-air update option for devices and unique device IDs. And while the law pertains only to devices purchased by the U.S. government, there’s little reason to suspect it won’t have ongoing and broad effects on the IoT industry. Companies will likely include NIST’s cybersecurity requirements in all of its devices, whether selling to the U.S. government or elsewhere.
