The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Vimeo Refuses to Self-Censor After Indonesia Ban

Jakarta. Vimeo will not change its policies or censor any content in response to Indonesia’s decision to ban the popular video sharing site.

“We cannot — and do not believe that it is possible to — guarantee that any particular type of content will never be published on Vimeo, whether on a worldwide or country-specific basis,” Vimeo general counsel Michael Cheah wrote in a letter, sent on Wednesday and obtained by the Jakarta Globe on Thursday, to Indonesian director general of informatics applications Heru Tjahjono.

The site has been blocked in the world’s fourth largest country since Communications Minister Tifatul Sembiring on May 12 tweeted from his personal account that the site had violated anti-pornography regulations. But Internet service providers have rolled out the ban haphazardly: Some put it in place while others did not.

Tifatul said the site was banned for hosting pornographic content.

“Vimeo does allow videos that depict nudity and human sexuality in certain [non-pornographic] contexts, such as where depictions might serve an artistic or narrative goal,” Cheah wrote. “Vimeo is not, however, a porn site. We have never permitted pornography.”

The high-definition pioneer has long been a favorite among independent artists, filmmakers and musicians. Some 26 million users have registered with the site, which receives 170 million views per month.

Critics have called the ban a grave threat to free expression, especially at a time of burgeoning success for independent films made in Indonesia.

“There is no place in a democracy for banning the tools that we use for the free exchange of ideas and information, whether Vimeo or other social media,” Joshua Oppenheimer, director of acclaimed documentary “The Act of Killing,” told the Jakarta Globe.

The Ministry of Communications and Information said last Friday that it was open to revoking the ban if the website were able to address the government’s concerns.

“It’s not permanent,” acting ministry spokesman Ismail Cawidu told the state-run Antara News Agency. “We’re only waiting to see a minimum effort to remove the pornographic content.”

The ministry blocked YouTube briefly in 2008, until the site agreed to censor certain videos. But Vimeo, according to the letter, was unwilling to come to a similar accommodation, leaving its future in Indonesia uncertain.

“Vimeo allows people from around the world to share their creative videos,” Cheah wrote. “The ban harms Indonesian creators and users by depriving them of a venue to share and view creative works. We urge the ministry to reconsider its ban of Vimeo.”
