Yesterday I visited the world press photo award exhibition in Zürich. The exhibition displays the best press photos of recent years. It’s mostly about conflicts and rights activism happening all over the world. This time not only pictures where shown, but also videos. One of those videos gave me a lot of thought. It was about how China is changing the internet or already has changed it for its people. A short and concise reportage tells how the internet has developed behind the great firewall. You should definitely watch it, it’s impressive and frightening:
Personally, I’ve already heard a lot about China using the internet to govern it’s economy and believe western society underestimates the impact it will have in the near future. We have to take more responsibility for the apps we use and the companies we trust. There’s not much more to it.
