Internet-Monopoly: The Way to the „open Internet“
20 years ago the internet revolutionised with open protocols our communication and our access to wisdom.
Today, Google, Facebook, Amazon and others are setting the pace in ever-expanding areas of the Internet – with already significant implications:
Google and Facebook only show us the part of the reality that benefits their business interests.
And even if providers such as WhatsApp pass our data without our approval, today it is difficult to leave the service today, because all of our contacts continue to use it.
However, Rafael Laguna remains confident, as all industrial monopolies have been replaced. In his lecture he will show how the path to the “open Internet” can look like.
