ICT Future: Lets Start with Participation in Thailand

Often young people are the first to take advantage of information and communication technologies. I see this in developing countries within the region, a prevalent desire for continuous content consumption, be it via sharing on social media, engaging on the internet, advocacy with mass dissemination and, or simply for one’s private entertainment. Traditional sense of socializing, at least during the “old days” of my youth, have been aggressively challenged and even in this day and age of modernization, we still see the present socialization challenged by young people and by people of my generation.

New technology is not only bringing about the uniformed culture of information. There has been frequent outbreaks of anti-conformism to this culture, bordering on the right to internet freedom to socio-political self-awareness of ideas and propagandas. Such culture is visible in almost every corner of the youth community, where experimentation, tentative prodding and the curiosity swells.

Though often, such in Thailand, this behaviour of internet autonomy is discouraged by the cultural conservatives, right-wings and the authorities. Some groups, traditionalists fearing a backlash to their lives or to their sense of “order” and make it a point to exclude young people in decision-making process, such as in consultation for the country’s national internet-related policies.

I’ve noticed, such exclusion takes place when authorities demand for development (in this case, a so-called “reform”) of national strategies with the secret introduction of a new set of laws, governed by a rebranded government strong-arm, called “Ministry of Digital Economy“. Though in truth, its a far-removed agency with politically motivated individuals championing its conception. I worry about the digital divide, in itself caused by the junta-inspired groups of decision-makers, with unsolved social inequality, marginalization and that obvious institutional desire to ensure conformity.

So let’s start with basic questions, by facilitating the brain juices of young people:

Are there government programs and policies that specifically address the right of participation of not just young people but also the masses into consultation in drafting laws that affect ICT? If so, what areas of focus?

Are there government-related programs to empower young people to be part of the growth of ICT in Thailand? What about NGO programs? Is the private sector involved, and what about individuals?

Have young people or youth organizations been involved with the present planning of the proposed laws? And what about the evaluation of the future impact of such laws on them?

Without their active participation in decision-making and problem-solving, and without taking into account of their concerns on censorship, surveillance and other internet regulations, the government will surely place young Thais on the wrong side of the digital divide.

SOPA and PIPA Are Too Dangerous To Revise, They Must Be Killed Entirely 

Congress needs to hear from you, or these dangerous bills will pass – they have tremendous lobbying dollars behind them, from corporations experts say are attempting to prop up outdated, anti-consumer business models at the expense of the very fabric of the Internet — recklessly unleashing a tsunami of take-down notices and litigation, and a Pandora’s jar of “chilling effects” and other unintended (or perhaps intended?) consequences.

There is still time to be heard. Congress is starting to backpedal on this job-killing, anti-American nonsense, and the Obama administration has weighed in against these bills as drafted, but SOPA/PIPA cannot be fixed or revised — they must be killed altogether.

Sen Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Rep Ron Wyden (D-OR) are championing an alternative to SOPA/PIPA called Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act (OPEN) that addresses foreign sites dedicated to piracy, without disrupting basic Internet protocols, or threatening mainstream US sites like craigslist.

Tim O’Reilly, a publisher who is himself subject to piracy, asks whether piracy is even a problem, and whether there is even a legitimate need for any of these bills.

Media menaced in Thailand

Saturday, August 28, 2010

PHUKET: Press freedom in Thailand, especially for broadcast media such as community radio stations and Web boards, has “palpably deteriorated” over the past six years, says Roby Alampay, outgoing executive director of the Southeast Asian Press Alliance (Seapa).

“The Internet over the past six years has played a crucial role in allowing people to debate and air their views,” Alampay said, adding that things had become “more personal” when users began facing censorship, state monitoring, and the threat of prosecution over content in their e-mails or social networking sites.

“Print media fortunately remain very vibrant and free,” he added.

Alampay, who has completed his term at Bangkok-based Seapa and leaves for Manila today, told The Nation that Thais have to be mindful about the growing legal constraints that curb media freedom and expression.

Six years ago, Thaksin Shinawatra was “no friend of the media”, but was “put in check” by the courts, Alampay said. Now, after political and military upheaval, there is Abhisit Vejjajiva.

“You have a prime minister who benefited from political and military upheavals, and he says all the right things about press freedom, but in the background, there’s a lot of trouble,” he said.

For example, he said, the current Computer Crime Act was “dangerous” because the authorities were exploiting its harsh penalties and weaknesses.

“I’m not just blaming Abhisit, because other people have also been exploiting the law and making it more confusing,” he said.

When Abhisit first came to power, he told society “not to worry about the law”, but Alampay said things have turned out to be “quite disappointing, and unfortunately got worse” under the current administration.

As reported in the Phuket Gazette three months ago, Poomjit Sirawongprasert, president of the Thai [Website] Hosting Service Providers Club, notes that, “Thailand is getting increasingly like China when it comes to Internet censorship.”

And Reporters Without Borders says that over the past few years more than 50,000 websites have been blocked.

Consequently, Thailand’s standing in the Press Freedom Index of Reporters Without Borders plunged to 130 last year, from 65 in 2002.

With the emergency decree having been invoked in so many Thai provinces (but not Phuket) in April of this year, and with that decree still in force in several areas, further deterioration in media freedom is likely.

Bangkok and Phuket-based television and Web board operators surveyed by the Phuket Gazette predict that Thailand’s Freedom Index ranking will have plunged still further when the statistic for 2009 is announced next year.
