Using Opera Unite to defeat SOPA?

Lets assume that the big bad world of American electoral politics forces some kind of modified SOPA to be passed, and the big American companies have to abide by that law (just as they do share data  for National Security under Patriot Act but quitely).

I belive Opera Unite is the way forward to sharing content on the Internet.

From-

http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/opera-unite-developer-primer-revisited/

Opera Unite features a Web server running inside the Opera browser, which allows you to do some amazing things. At the touch of a button, you can share images, documents, video, music, games, collaborative applications and all manner of other things with your friends and colleagues

I can share music, and files , and the web server is actually my own laptop. try beating 2 billion new web servers that sprout!! File system sharing is totally secure- you can create private, public, or password protected files, a messaging system that can be used for drop messages (called fridge), a secure messaging system and your own web server is ready to start at a click. the open web may just use opera instead of chromium, and US regulation would be solely to blame. even URL blocking is of limited appeal thanks to software like MafiaWire Extension

Throw in Ad block, embedded bit torrent sharing and some more  Tor level encryption within the browser and sorry Senator, but the internet belongs to the planet not to your lobbyist.

My Digital Trail

Someone I know recently mentioned that I have an extensive Digital Trail. I do.

I have 7863 connections at http://www.linkedin.com/in/ajayohri, 31 likes at https://www.facebook.com/ajayohri and 19 likes at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ajay-Ohri/157086547679568, 409 friends (and 13 subscribers) at https://www.facebook.com/byebyebyer .On twitter I have 499 followers at http://twitter.com/0_h_r_1 and 344 followers at http://twitter.com/rforbusiness , and even on Google Plus some 617 people circling me at https://plus.google.com/116302364907696741272 (besides 6 other pages on G+)

Even my Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/decisionstats is more popular than I am in non-digital life. my non existant video blog at http://videosforkush.blogspot.com/ and my poetry blog at http://poemsforkush.wordpress.com/, and my comments on other social media, and my blurbs on my tumblr http://kushohri.tumblr.com/, and you get a lot of my psych profile.

Why do I do leave so much trail digitally?

For one reason- I was a bit of introvert always and technology set me free, the opportunity to think and yet be relaxed in anonymous chatter.

For the second reason- I am divorced and my wife got my 4 yr old son’s custody. Even though I talk to him once a day for a couple of minutes, somehow I hope when he grows, he reads my digital trail , maybe even these words, on the kind of man I was and the phases and seasons of life I went through.

 

That is all.

 

 

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for-1) God and Jesus Christ and Rama and Allah and Buddha and their priests and intermediaries and everybody taking care of me. or atleast trying hard to take care of me.2) Earth my planet for nourishing me despite me polluting her, her fresh air and her delicious fruit and marvellous wine and hearty bread.

3) Fellow Human Beings for being nice to me when they feel curt, for displaying civilized manners, and working together in a vast invisible web of commerce, trade and exchange to meet our needs.

4) Scientists and Engineers who create wonderful technology by spending hours , months , years of their lives and giving it up for free on the Internet.

5) Powerful people who take time to mentor unknown wild cards, and young people to rejuvenate with new exciting ideas.

6) people who appreciate my poetry and people who appreciate my technology. and people who criticize only in the intention of me striving to create something better.

Google Plus Hangouts gets Enterprise Level Upgrade

Check out the new Google Plus Hangout with Extras

http://www.google.com/support/plus/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1289346&ctx=go&hl=en

About Hangouts with Extras

Hangouts with Extras is a simple and easy way to connect and collaborate with your colleagues in real time. With Hangouts with Extras you can:

Connect with multiple people simultaneously: With group video chat and web conferencing you can connect with multiple people around the world at the same time.

Share your screen: Ever look at something that you couldn’t quite put into words? Well, with screen sharing you give other people the ability to view what’s on your computer screen. You can choose an open window screen on your computer and give everyone in your meeting the ability to look at it. Learn More

Collaborate in real time: You can meet, share notes, and even work on documents at the same time.Learn More

For enterprises- you can throw out your video conferencing software and collaboration tools and get a new mobile app for free.

Small drawbacks in the Google Plus- lack of integration with Youtube (it is one way integration from youtube to hangouts but not the other way round fixed), lack of a whiteboard  for sketches- (like again a shortcut to a google doc 🙂 ) or even bundling the record from your web cam to record your desktop.

Ultimately enterprises want to know how they can use this stuff for e-learning modules or webcasts.

—————–END—————————-

Alternative uses-

Check out NY Met Museum with Friends (thanks to Google Art Project)

Play Linkin Park Playlist (100 videos) with Friends btw. great graphic redesign of Youtube icons!! Now if we could only convince the Google Docs to get more integrated with Open Office or LibreOffice templates

or even set up a DJ table session using Google Hangouts. with Extras of course.

But as it stands it may be good to go for webcasts !!
