Quadriga: Worldwide Web Free Internet in Danger?

Deutsche Welle (Dec. 6, 2012) — Up to now, the Internet has enabled millions of people to access information and express their opinion. Now, China and Russia are pushing for states to have a greater say over the World Wide Web at the UN telecom's conference in Dubai. Could this mean an end to the Internet as we know it? UN member states are set to review Internet regulations at the conference, which kicked off in the United Arab Emirates on Monday. User data has been administered by private organizations up to now. But Moscow has put forward a proposal saying member states should have equal rights to manage the Internet. Data protectionists and human rights campaigners fear greater curbs on cyber freedoms in authoritarian countries. And Europe is pressing for a new Internet tax to target the Web's largest content providers, including Google, Facebook and Apple. Under the proposals, the companies would have to pay a fee to send data along telecom operators' networks outside the US.

Facebook: 10 Years Old and Still "Scaling Up"

TheStreet (Feb. 4, 2014) — Facebook employees take their time when it matters most, and that patience has enabled the company to grow tremendously over the past ten years, says Robert Sutton, author of "Scaling Up Excellence". Also helping Facebook's growth was CEO Mark Zuckerberg's early decision to put product over profits. If Facebook wants to continue scaling up, says Sutton, it needs to emulate Google as it matures and make a transition to a different type of workforce, which is more focused on the needs of the employee and his or her family.
