Extraterritoriality and the Internet

After watching Professor Herzog’s lecture, I really thought about the part where he said “if you are not sharing, you are not being social – you are just broadcasting.” This is something I totally agree with but, for some reason, I started thinking about sharing information to other people from other countries and how their countries’ laws may not accept some of the information I may be sharing. So, I wrote this little blurb:

The Internet is the latest and greatest technology dedicated to transmitting and receiving information in various formats; it was created in the United States for the purpose of sharing free information and, today, is one of the most effective as well as controversial methods of communication around the world. On one hand, the Internet has enhanced societies – people are able to research information, socialize, keep up with their friends and family, create and share documents and other works, and purchase goods all at the click of a mouse, anytime and anywhere. On the other, it does not recognize national boundaries – the Internet itself is border-less. Therefore, as the Internet continues to grow, both in number of users and capacity, it also has become enmeshed in a seemingly constant struggle to remain “open.” The decentralized nature of the Internet has created a clash of laws and governments that point to the issue of extraterritoriality. 

As we know, social media is a very powerful tool in today’s world but the idea of extraterritoriality really makes me think that the Internet indeed has borders. THAT can be a bad thing for us digital socialites.

My Organization(s) (Repeat from BB)

Hello everyone,

In my Introduction I stated that I work at Market Basket, however, I would like to continue through with my blog posts and research within our class as a musician who wants to create a new music business model in the digital era. As a matter of fact, and as I have planned, my thesis for the MBA program will be all about this music business model. I am well read in intellectual property and I have been following many different new music business models (pandora, spotify, and deezer to name a few) so that I can employ what I feel can be successful for my future. This course is so very important for my understanding and development with all that there is digital and seeing as I have little experience with newer digital social media tools, it would be great if you could assist me with things that I am doing “right” and things that I am doing “wrong.” Without further ado, I will just go ahead and post my blogs, blackboard texts, and tweets as it pertains to the world of music in the digital era. Thank you kindly!

And, I’m back.

Prompted by my course of study, a MBA in Strategic Leadership at New England College, I have returned to the digital world. My latest class, Digital Marketing and Brand Development, will be utilizing wrodpress, among other digital social media, to create an effective communicator and salesman out of me. Here we go!
