Sharing my experience in Ladies that UX Taipei

I shared my internet governance forum experience to students in Ladies that UX Taipei at Taipei Medical University last night.

There were two speakers in the event. I introduced about IGF, APrIGF, TWIGF, APNIC and APRICOT, TWOPM and TWNOG, multistakeholder mechanism, some internet governance issues roughly and quickly.

It’s a wonderful experience to have dialogues with none information technology related domain students. But they are internet aboriginal, they were born and grown-up with internet.

Many students were interested in internet marketing, some students were interested in cybersecurity, how to protect their own data and themselves in the cyber world.

Some others shared how to identify disinformation when they received a news from a social media or other friends. They will wait, observe, check with different medias. They also think the possibility. I think they already have some basic digital literacy with their own. That’s really a good news.

Some students and volunteers care about blockchain, 5G, GDPR. There’s a student shared the transparency report information from TAHR (Taiwan Association of Human Rights) to me, and talked about his observations about data protection of end users and worry about how to make everyone has those awareness . That’s really surprising me.

There were several participants also curious about multistakholer mechanism and how to implement it in our life, any scenarios with their career in the future or in the school communities. I didn’t have enough time to explain more about multistakeholder mechanism or talk some cases more deeply. But I enjoyed to have interaction with younger generations. The future belongs to them, they need to get to involve in to internet governance early.

Thanks to Ladies that UX Taipei and every participant.

We may lose our freedom of the Internet in the near future

I believe those internet pioneers invented the Internet and the World Wide Web is to empower citizens to get and share knowledge without physical and wealth boundaries at the beginning, everyone will be equal in the Internet world. People will  have the power to know, to express themselves with the power of the Internet. Then citizens may have the power to against unreasonable policies bye the power of the Internet. But 'empowerment' also means we need to be mature enough to take the responsibility, do self-regulation and management with the power. We can't always believe and depend on the government. If we put the responsibility back to the government, that means we give back the power to government. The Internet has some characters make it looks like a 'public goods', but it has never become a 'public goods.' Those pioneers argued this issues several years ago. We can see many people spread their hate speech by the social media and those big tech companies
