Paul Dumoulin CS 312 Dr Wolf Chapter 17 From Virtual Communities to Smart Mobs The article Question Time Global Village or Global Police Station by M Grundy from the webbased Association for Computing Machinery ACM magazine Ubiquity address concerns that arise from the creation of the new global Village It was first published in August of 2000 The article deals with ideas expressed by both Rheingold and Mann in From Visual Communities to Smart Mobs by Lane Jennings One of the main points in the article agrees with Mann s philosophy in the fact that Grundy describes the intemet as a place where you can be free from government control It is written in the article that You can engage in agreements binding or not with Virtual entities that may have no legal identity anywhere no assets to speak of and no real country of origin 1Grundy 1 This freedom from law creates numerous questions for Gundy such as who will enforce laws what laws should be enforced and how should they be enforced An example is provided at the beginning where the owner of an intemet gambling site in Antigua where gambling is legal was sentenced to jail in the United States for accepting bets from Americans Ironically the example points out that American can sell Nazi memorabilia over the intemet to a country like France where it is illegal to buy such things and the American sellers enjoy the protection of the first amendment 1Grundy 1 The article goes on to state that historically that countries that have power and a need to protect their interests can come into con ict over economic issues Double standards already exist in the worldwide economy and as well in the international economy of the intemet The largest and most powerful players tend to set the rules and those with similar interests tend to group together 1Grundy 1 This unfortunately can be the cause of international con ict and wars Grundy states that By the very nature and complexity of the Internet it seems unlikely that the global Internet economy will ever become a legal monoculture 1Grundy l The author also poses a similar scenario to Rheingold s Grundy envisions the formation of Internet Cartels which are similar to the mobs that Rheingold describes but they have more sophistication and within themselves set rules and provide mutual protection for each other 1Grundy l The article predicts a virtual world with safe places and out of the way lawless MadMax style locations 1Grundy l The author does not fear the creation of a BigBrother gure that will watch our every move and regulate every action but rather Grundy sees a cyber world that can be very civilized in some instances and completely lawless in others The article poses a very interesting question at its end Grundy states that many of these same characteristics occur in globalization that is not related to technology so the dominant force may be globalization not just technology alone 1Grundy 1 It seems that the intemet is viewed by Grundy as a tradeoff when we get freedom from government control there will always be those that abuse that freedom and it is extremely hard to find the correct balance 1 Grundy M quotQuestion Time Global Village or Global Police Stationquot Ubiguity Aug 2000 1 IEEE Computer Society Digital Libra Pace University Library New York 11 Feb 2007
