Lamont Signals Openness to Taxing Digital Advertisers, Hears Concerns – CT Examiner

Gov. Ned Lamont said in a press conference on Thursday that hed be willing to consider a proposed tax on large digital advertisers like Google and Facebook.

I think it deserves a look, Lamont said, adding that the state at one time relied on corporate income tax for 20 to 25 percent of its revenue. Now, very few companies pay it, and certainly not those big, digital out of state companies.

Lawmakers have introduced two bills H.B. 6187 and S.B. 821 that would establish a ten per cent tax on the annual gross revenues derived from digital advertising services in the state for any business with annual world-wide gross revenues exceeding ten billion dollars.

But those proposals have met opposition from a number of retailers and Connecticut Retail Merchant Association, who say that the cost wont be borne by Google or Facebook, but will be passed down to smaller businesses across Connecticut.

Tim Phelan, president of the Connecticut Retail Merchant Association, sent a letter to Lamont in March, asking him to oppose the legislative proposal. Twenty-one retailers signed the letter.

Phelan said that the large corporations arent just going to absorb these extra costs.

The smaller retailer is now going to see their advertising rates go up, and at a time when the consumer is looking all over the place for where to shop and how to shop, particularly on social media sites, said Phelan. We have to be there.

Karen Munson, owner of Munsons Chocolates, which has eight locations in the state, said that the timing of the bill was an added problem, given businesses are struggling with both a loss of revenue during the pandemic and the need to shift even more toward online advertising.

This tax has nothing to do with recovery for us. Its going to have the opposite effect, she said.

According to Munson, in the last year her business shifted 100 percent of its advertising to digital media. The majority, she said, to Amazon, Facebook and Google.

Its a challenge to reach consumers, she said, explaining that to reach a new generation of cord-cutters online advertising has become critical.

Phelan estimated that his members spend between 30 and 40 percent revenues on digital advertising. Munson estimated the costs at about 30 percent for her business.

Its the wrong tax at the wrong time, said Phelan.

State Rep. Sean Scanlon, D-Guilford, was more supportive.

I dont see why that would need to be passed onto them, he said. I think these companies are making a truly staggering amount of money I dont think that this tax would necessarily even be a drop in the bucket for them.

Google reported revenues of more than $181 billion in 2020. Amazon reported $386 billion of revenues in 2020, an 84 percent increase from the previous year.

Scanlon said that language could be added to the legislation to prevent the larger companies from passing the cost down to their customers.

State Rep. Holly Cheeseman, R-East Lyme, who has proposed similar legislation, said it was worth debating tax policies and business structures that can address the growing digital economy.

I thought it was worth having the conversation, because we do see huge billions and billions of dollars of digital advertising revenue derived from these platforms, said Cheeseman.

Cheeseman also said that shed spoken with business owners and that she understood these policies could have a negative impact on smaller businesses. She said that was not the intent of the bill.

I am the last person to want to do something to harm small business, said Cheeseman.

But she also said that large corporations like Google and Amazon were in themselves threats to brick-and-mortar retailers.

Maybe this would get more money into the pockets of Connecticut residents to spend on their local businesses, who knows? she said.

In February, Maryland became the first state in the country to pass a law taxing digital revenue. Other states like New York, Indiana and West Virginia have advanced similar legislation. Big tech lobbyists and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce filed a lawsuit against the Maryland law, claiming that the taxation model was unconstitutional.

Richard Pomp, a member of the faculty at the University of Connecticut School of Law specializing in tax law, said that passing a digital advertising tax like the Maryland law would be a fools errand, given that the idea is already facing litigation and questions of constitutionality.

There are better ways to have gone about this, Pomp said.

If the Biden administration could address the issue on a national level, Pomp said, rather than leaving it on a state-by-state basis, it could stop these companies from pitting states against one another in a competition for business.

But Cheeseman said she didnt think the federal government was inclined to propose this type of tax. In fact, the United States has threatened to impose tariffs on countries that impose taxes on the tech giants arguing that it would discriminate against large U.S.-based companies.

On a state level, Pomp said that a better model than Maryland would be New York, which has proposed a data mining bill that would levy a five percent tax on companies that collect data on New York State residents. He said that states could also collect corporate taxes or sales taxes on all forms of advertising, including those of multi-billion dollar companies.

But Pomp said there is no way to stop the tech companies from then passing down the costs of additional taxes onto smaller businesses that advertise with them.

Its all a matter of leverage and market power, said Pomp. Its more than likely it will increase what customers pay. Theres no way to protect against it.

Munson agreed that the tax would inevitably affect businesses like hers.

On the surface, it sounds so appealing and so easy, she said. It completely ignores whats going to happen with that tax.

Bitcoin electricity usage caused by leaving the big light on – NewsBiscuit

Data miners of Bitcoin are said to use more electricity than entire nations, but new evidence suggests it is all because they left their TV on standby overnight. The extraordinary carbon footprint of digital currency could easily have been avoided, if they had just used a dimmer-switch, had a cold bath and put their laundry on a 30/30 wash.

Florence Nurdle, a 97 year-old grandmother, offered cost saving tips to the Bitcoin industry:Use lids when boiling your cabbage soup. Take a hot water bottle to bed and wear loft insulation in the bath. Pack your freezer with any spam left over from the 40s. And never leave the big light on otherwise the Luftwaffe will see you.

China accounts for 75% of all bitcoin mining, yet still refuses to use the draft excluder we sent them last Xmas, you know the one, the one for the back door, the door that has never closed properly since we had that rain last month. Bit-coin related emissions increases exponentially, but so does Chinas insistence on using the large ring on the hob instead of using the smaller one which we know is just them showing off.

One Bitcoin miner admitted: Swapping energy supplier helped a little bit but if we really want to get serious about saving energy, we just need to wear thicker socks.

Is the Internet transforming natural knowledge? – The Citizen

By Innocent Swai

What makes us human? The only thing which swiftly comes to mind is our thoughts. Humanity is gifted with a highly complex and fascinating brain, which makes it possible not only to acquire and share tacit knowledge but also engage in critical and autonomous thought.

Such ability to think has brought humanity to where we are today: in a knowledgeable world where information and misinformation are created and disseminated with incredible speed with the help of the Internet.

The overuse of Internet is undermining our critical and autonomous thought. Humanity is being trapped into perceiving all the information online as the truth. Misinformation and fake news are affecting our societies negatively. But, more on that soon.

We are in a new age of the Internet which is driven by big data, artificial intelligence (AI) and data mining. Have you watched sci-fi series of Star Trek? Its an imagined futuristic world in which the borders between the digital world and our world are becoming increasingly blurred. The reality is that were moving toward a digital future that is turning what used to be science fiction into reality. What used to Web 2.0 which was collaboration at its best has been transformed into Web 3.0. The latter is known as the Internet of Things (IoT), where intelligent, connected digital gadgets bring the Internet into every aspect of our daily routines.

Through IoT, devices like digital watches, fridges, lighting, speakers and even smartphones equipped with connective capabilities are providing new, easier and more efficient alternatives to our daily routines. However, these connected digital gadgets are more than just helpful, theyre also data-mining tools. These gadgets track user behaviours and share information with other connected gadgets worldwide.

For governments and the big tech corporations like Amazon, Facebook and Google, these massive amounts of data are a gold mine, being used to empower them to know everything about our personalities, networks and behavioural patterns. Such insights help them to design sophisticated new products and services that shape entire societies.

Knowledge can be information thats true and reliable provided its supported by reasons. As such, knowledge is distinct from mere factual information. For example: imagine youre looking for a certain office and ask a passerby for directions. Theyve got no more of a clue than you do, but take a guess and tell you to turn left. As it happens, they were correct. They didnt know where to go, but they were able to give you factually accurate information anyway.

As you can see factual information is enough to lead anyone in the right direction. So how important is knowledge after all? Well, suppose, the same passerby had said right. Its an obvious wrong guess. Such information wasnt based on reason, which makes it unreliable.

By contrast, someone with knowledge understands what theyre talking about and can provide good reasons. But, in our digital world, devices collect factual information, but dont necessarily create new knowledge. Facebook might know what all the links visited by users, without knowing the reason behind their motives. Hence, Facebook gathers information, but not knowledge.

Its knowledge, not information, thats crucial for a functioning society. Joint efforts to develop collective tacit knowledge is what will make humanity to survive and thrive. However, sharing reliable knowledge rather than just information is key. In other words, we must think independently and critically.

Unfortunately, our digital culture places less and less emphasis on these very skills and, as a result, our society may well be heading toward an intelligence trap. Go figure!

Cloud Computing Magazine Names Versa SASE Secure Access a 2021 Product of the Year Award Winner – Yahoo Finance

Versa Recognized as Industrys Only Comprehensive Integration of Cloud Security, Networking, SD-WAN, Secure Access, and Analytics for Branch, Remote and Home Users

Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the Versa SASE Secure Access work-from-home (WFH) solution as a 2021 Product of the Year winner, as presented by Cloud Computing Magazine.

Versa SASE for work-from-home delivers tightly integrated SASE via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both via Versa Operating System (VOS) with a Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture and managed through a single pane of glass. Versa began delivering SASE services such as VPN, Secure SD-WAN, Edge Compute Protection, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service, Secure Web Gateway, and Zero Trust Network Access 5 years ago. Versa uniquely provides contextual security based on user, role, device, application, location, security posture of the device, and content. As the leader in the fastest growing security and networking category, SASE, and executing on SASE services for years, Versa is the only solution proven to deliver the industrys leading and differentiated architecture for high performance and security. Gartner has identified Versa SASE as having the most SASE components out of all 56 vendors Gartner evaluated. Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) also found that Versa SASE has the most SASE supported functions, as published in its recent industry report.

"Congratulations to Versa Networks for being honored with a Cloud Computing Product of the Year Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Versa SASE Secure Access is truly an innovative product and is amongst the best solutions available within the past 12 months that facilitates business-transforming cloud computing and communications. I look forward to continued excellence from Versa Networks in 2021 and beyond."

Story continues

"It is an honor to receive the Cloud Computing 2021 Product of the Year Award, recognizing Versa SASE for unique delivery of fully integrated SASE services via the cloud or if customers prefer delivered on-premises or as a blended combination of both," said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. "Versa SASE adoption continues to rapidly expand worldwide in 2021, as does its list of accolades, including leadership position listings in industry analyst reports and a growing collection of awards won. Versa is the modern secure network."

Unlike competing solutions, Versa SASE was built from the ground up to deliver a tightly integrated SASE solution within a single software stack managed via a single interface, eliminating service chaining, cascading, and virtual interconnect between services, which is required by competitors. Competing solutions have hidden costs and gaps in security because they require multiple product and service components. Achieving visibility and control from solutions requiring service chaining to connect multiple components together proves ineffective, increasing the costs and attack surfaces for organizations.

Versa SASE runs on VOS, which is designed with the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture combining extensive security, advanced networking, industry leading SD-WAN, genuine multitenancy, and sophisticated analytics into one software image. This integration and design methodology dramatically decreases latency, significantly improves performance, and mitigates security vulnerabilities which other solutions introduce by running multiple software stacks, service chains, or appliances.
