Misleading Language Is Not Science

It is nohow about God Particle on Earth, only fundamental matter of Universe is being researched with specific focus on Higgs boson but media hype has become absolutely otherwise. This is not good for public awareness as they know only that much about advanced research as much is said in public media. Sometime human nature makes scientists to create unscientific cover-ups but misleading language is not science.

Opposing governments growing attempts to legislate Internet
Individuals accessing Internet feel freedom. Freedom doesn’t come free of cost. Life too is a negligible expense to keep one’s individual freedom intact. Fighting for freedom of Internet is no less personal. Every individual must fight most fiercely to make all governments recognize that Internet has integrated humanity and humanity is immovable after getting its greatest conquest over suppressing states of all sorts in the form of worldwide web. Hackers must not stop here but establish opensource architecture of universe. Internet Protocols are enough to take care of Internet. Rest will be done by developing real technologies instead of inept legislations. Governments of all countries better stay away focussing on their domain that has been ‘laws of land’ and finish pending task of freeing respective states from violence and deception instead of practicing both.

Governments must know that what does a war on Internet mean?
We are not worried that most of the governments across all countries are gearing to wage a full-fledged war on independence of Internet but I am concerned that unlike them we have no leaders who may proclaim war or ceasefire so what will happen if it starts? It may go on up to any extent till the final victory of every anonymous hacker on planet. I hope that their remaining intelligence will make them understand that what chaos such a war may cause up on them.

The future is hacked
The future is hacked and anonymous reached almost everywhere. Governments are going to protect you from reality since Internet made you vulnerable to truth.

Internet protocol permits only technological progress
Whosoever is unhappy online must take technological route to resolve the situation. Internet protocol permits only technological progress. Internet is hardcore technological subject so we are not going to allow anyone to contaminate science by legislating politically.

World Wide Web is the largest market made by Opensource Architecture
World Wide Web is the largest market made by Opensource Architecture. Governments have also come here. Most of them now have google, facebook and twitter accounts. They send mails from g-mail and access global data from google servers. Still they don’t realize the poverty of governance that what they are capable of due to departmentalizing IT?

You can’t do more than putting your people under embargo on Internet. If you will do that even the history shall put you under embargo forever.

Governments consider reverse intelligence (Information Technology) a department
Governments consider reverse intelligence (Information Technology) a department and expends a lot of money on running it. So that they run outdated websites on misconfigured proprietory code. Such morons may sure make a few laws for coup d’état also

Governments yet don’t know much about opensource architecture so think that they can do legislation to world-wide-web. Poor fellows who failed to see that IT was reverse intelligence changing flow of information forever towards people and thus can never work as a department of government. But they did so and allocated huge budgets to run this show of absurdity almost everywhere. Result is known to whole world that United States America reached up to bankruptcy when Apple had more cash than government had and when prosperity of google and facebook gave almost no relief to US people who went ahead to occupy Wall Street. Now perhaps they want Internet also to serve as government department. Let them learn a few lessons here.

Everybody better learn from us that how to legislate Internet
You have to become us. It is that simple since only we can teach and train you in the art of legislating Internet so better get trained in dominant web-technologies now. But believe me that once you patiently get trained trough all this, you would not only leave web-space free but forget forfeiting freedoms of all sorts legislatively. We are just like that.

Internet has organised individual freedoms
Internet has organised individual freedoms across all age-old political barriers. If now you consider it as updated politics you shall feel better.

My students’ full names are all same to me as I. P. Anonymous
When you get involved within dominant web-technologies, you find that entities are merely IP addresses in contemorary Internet regime that is ruled by us anonymously.

I do not remember my students’ names. My students’ full names are all same to me as I. P. Anonymous. It is similar to any south Indian name. Only surname changes whenever they start livin’ with another computer. To me and you tall of them are always anonymous while inside Internet they remain just IPs and I appreciate for the respect they owe to me for the education they got. It has been all about freedom. I teach nothing beyond that.

I teach FREEDOM, not mere technology…
What I teach is actually FREEDOM and technology is only a tool for that. What you pay back is also FREEDOM as some money makes it work better.

FREEDOM becomes unbeatable upon becoming popular utility on World Wide Web
Websites and their users make winsome combinations on Internet not only in making money but in making independence as well. FREEDOM becomes unbeatable upon becoming popular utility on World Wide Web. So make it so more often than not.

Internet is not a place for copyrights
Internet is neither a place for copyright acts and nor for any legislatively made-up acts as it is a place to copy and distribute all possible utilities freely as per its protocol.

Internet can only be innovated beyond all possible legislation
Internet is a different kind of place altogether. You cannot legislate it but can innovate it endlessly further beyond all possible legislation. I hope you may understand its course by this very nature of it.

Freedom of Internet is very much like freedom of thought
Integrating humanity unprecedentedly internet has emerged as mega-mind of humankind so restricting it legislatively is almost like controlling your thoughts by some sort of thought police.

Internet is the movement and humanity is moved
Human-being wants to remain anonymous just to avert the tyranny of states while at the same time wishing to re-occupy the planet Earth just to prevent precious resources of humanity from getting wasted in the hands of states. It is humanity that has moved subsequently once Internet has become its movement. Now nothing can ever stop it from going on forever.

Facebook Is Working On Want Button

Facebook is testing Want Button similar to Like Button which is used across all pages on Facebook. Developer Tom Waddington said that a Want Button is added to the Facebook Javascript SDK as an XFBML tag <fb:wants>. Facebook has yet not listed this extension publicly. The button is for the objects marked as products on Open Graph.

Developers may use this new feature of Facebook for creating their Want Buttons  but authorization of any third party application is necessary to make it work.

Facebook Want Button is a Flop or Not?

Facebook Want Button would be quiet different from Facebook Like Button. Like Button shows individual interest but Want Button would be good for business purpose.

On one hand Facebook Like Button shows the user interest in product. Anyone can show his interest on certain product likewise a person who don’t have money to buy Apple I-Pad doesn’t mean that he don’t like it.

And, On the other hand Facebook Want Button would be showing individual’s interest on getting the product or buying it. Hence it reduces ambiguity for advertisers and target audience become more clear.

How Facebook Want Button Works?

Following is the tag released by Tom Waddington for Facebook Want Button:

<fb:want href=”…”></fb:want>

Reaction of Facebook Regarding Want Button

They responded that they are always testing new Platform features, however they have nothing new to announce.

Some are telling it would be back soon like Randy Hamilton. Some are telling that Ticker is back again etc. etc. But it is still not visible on my Facebook home page.
