Resumen: Las nuevas cifras y nuevos informes acerca de grupos de presión de Microsoft en los Estados Unidos.

La influencia de MICROSOFT en el gobierno de EE.UU. no es nada despreciable [http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Microsoft_influence_in_the_United_States_government] y en los próximos días vamos a mostrar algunos ejemplos impactantes en los que Microsoft utiliza conexiones con el gobierno para competir, en lugar de utilizar los mejores productos para competir. Anoche escribimos acerca de directivos de Microsoft que habían renunciado y el jefe federal de Microsoft se va también, como se explica en varios sitios web [1[http://www.federalnewsradio.com/?nid=365&sid=2184214], 2[http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/personnel-notes/131389-report-microsoft-federal-chief-heading-to-amazon]] incluyendo uno inclinado [http://washingtontechnology.com/articles/2010/12/01/microsoft-federal-leader-to-amazon.aspx] por Microsoft [http://techrights.org/2010/02/22/1105-media-is-not-government/](sí, Microsoft tiene relaciones con los sitios de noticias que cubren los asuntos del gobierno):

“Teresa Carlson, quien ha dirigido la división federalde Microsoft Corp., ha renunciado para irse a dirigir los esfuerzos de cloud computing en Amazon.com.”

A pesar de la fuerte influencia de Microsoft en el gobierno de los Estados Unidos, la retención de sus trabajadores ha estado resultando difícil en los últimos tiempos. Por otro lado, Microsoft se las arregló para atraer el ex jefe de Voodoo [1[http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/other/display/20101222091239_Microsoft_Hires_Founder_of_Voodoo_Boutique_PC_Maker.html], 2[http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/1934095/microsoft-hires-voodoo-chief]] y al final del mes de octubre todos nos enteramos que Steve Jobs, tuvo un episodio de furia a través de Microsoft, Bungie [1 [http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/report_microsoft-bungie_buyout_angered_steve_jobs/], 2 [http://www.tuaw.com/2010/10/26/report-steve-jobs-was-furious-over-microsofts-acquisition-of/], 3 [http://www.geek.com/articles/games/steve-jobs-was-furious-when-microsoft-bought-halo-making-bungie-20101027/], 4 [http://www.mcvuk.com/news/41496/Steve-Jobs-rage-over-Bungie-sale-to-MS]]. Microsoft se apoya en juegos, por lo que también acaba de contratar a Rahul Sood para este próposito [http://www.techeye.net/business/microsoft-nicks-hps-rahul-sood-for-gaming], como se explica en un montón de sitios, por ejemplo, [1[http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/35435/Rahool-Sood-joins-Microsoft], 2[http://hothardware.com/News/Rahul%2DSood%2DMoves%2DTo%2DMicrosoft/].

“Se da la ilusión de que las empresas desempeñan un papel modesto en la gestión de un país.”Microsoft mientras tanto la contratación de más grupos de presión [http://voices.washingtonpost.com/posttech/2010/11/microsoft_hires_salem_former_c.html], también: “Microsoft dijo el lunes que ha contratado el veterano del Capitolio Charles Salem como director general de la política pública.”

Un nuevo informe [http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-12-20/microsoft-spends-1-63-million-lobbying-in-3q.html] revela sólo la parte más conocida y divulgada de grupos de presión, mientras que Microsoft excluyendo al resto, como de costumbre. Se dice que “Microsoft Corp. gastó 1,63 MILLONES de DOLARES en sólo el tercer trimestre para presionar al gobierno federal sobre una amplia gama de temas, desde la piratería de software a la competencia en la publicidad en línea, según un informe de este reporte.”

Añada a Microsoft lanzando un millones dólares [http://www.computerworld.com.au/article/365616/updated_microsoft_forks_1_mil_gov_2_0/] sólo influir en la política del gobierno. Esto no es como el gobierno se supone que es de ejecución. Es evidente que la figura de arriba es unicamente ficticia, porque es muy incompleta. Se da la ilusión de que las empresas desempeñan un papel modesto en la gestión de un país.

DecorWhat Else is New

  1. The Demonisation and Stereotyping of Coders Not Working for Big Corporations (or 'The System')

    The war on encrypted communication (or secure communications) carries on despite a lack of evidence that encryption stands in the way of crime investigations (most criminals use none of it)

  2. On the 'Peak Hacker' Series

    Hacker culture, unlike Ludditism, is ultimately a movement for justice, for equality, and for human rights through personal and collective emancipation; Dr. Farnell has done a good job explaining where we stand and his splendid series has come to a close

  3. Links 23/1/2022: First RC of Linux 5.17 and Sway 1.7 Released

  4. Peak Code — Part III: After Code

    "Surveillance perimeters, smart TVs (Telescreens built to Orwell's original blueprint) watched over our living rooms. Mandatory smart everything kept us 'trustless'. Safe search, safe thoughts. We withdrew. Inside, we went quietly mad."

  7. A Parade of Fake News About the UPC Does Not Change the General Consensus or the Simple Facts

    European Patents (EPs) from the EPO are granted in violation of the EPC; Courts are now targeted by António Campinos and the minions he associates with (mostly parasitic litigation firms and monopolists), for they want puppets for “judges” and for invalid patents to be magically rendered “valid” and “enforceable”

  8. Welcome to 2022: Intentional Lies Are 'Benefits' and 'Alternative Facts'

    A crooks-run EPO, together with the patent litigation cabal that we’ve dubbed ‘Team UPC’ (it has nothing to do with science or with innovation), is spreading tons of misinformation; the lies are designed to make the law-breaking seem OK, knowing that Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are practically above the law, so perjury as well as gross violations of the EPC and constitutions won’t scare them (prosecution as deterrence just isn’t there, which is another inherent problem with the UPC)

  9. From Software Eating the World to the Pentagon Eating All the Software

    “Software is eating the world,” according to Marc Andreessen (co-founder of Netscape), but the Empire Strikes Back (not the movie, the actual empire) by hijacking all code by proxy, via Microsoft, just as it grabbed a lot of the world’s communications via Skype, bypassing the world's many national telecoms; coders need to fight back rather than participate in racist (imperial) shams such as GitHub

  12. Peak Code — Part II: Lost Source

    "Debian and Mozilla played along. They were made “Yeoman Freeholders” in return for rewriting their charters to “work closely with the new Ministry in the interests of all stakeholders” – or some-such vacuous spout… because no one remembers… after that it started."

  14. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)

  15. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

  18. Gemini Lets You Control the Presentation Layer to Suit Your Own Needs

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects

  19. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  20. [Meme] UPC for CJEU

    When you do illegal things and knowingly break the law to get started with a “legal” system you know it’ll end up in tears… or the CJEU

  22. The Web is a Corporate Misinformation/Disinformation Platform, Biased Against Communities, Facts, and Science

    Misinformation/disinformation in so-called 'news' sites is a pandemic which spreads; in the process, the founder of GNU/Linux gets defamed and GNU/Linux itself is described as the problem, not the solution to the actual problems

    Twitter is an out-of-control censorship machine and it should be treated accordingly even by those who merely "read" or "follow" Twitter accounts; Twitter is a filter, not a news/media platform or even means of communication
