The U.S. Government Shouldn’t Run the Country’s 5G Network - Larry Downes, HBR Apr 2019
"Leading Wall Street analysts have expressed skepticism about the business case for 5G, noting the absence, at least so far, of the kind of killer apps that drove rapid consumer adoption of 3G and 4G networks — text messaging for the former and video and software apps for the latter."

"So, if Washington really sees a connection between infrastructure, competitiveness, and national security, it should focus its attention and limited dollars on the physical networks."

GDPR and the End of the Internet’s Grand Bargain
A "sky is falling" argument, framed as questions for deniability: "The age of the free and open internet may come to an end, and quickly."

"In May the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect, two years after passage by the European Parliament. This radical new privacy law, which covers any business that processes information about EU residents, will dramatically affect the way data is collected, stored, and used, including for U.S. companies doing business abroad."

"For those who can afford it, the EU’s new deal for data will make interactions feel more private and less, well, creepy. The question EU regulators and their supporters abroad never seem to ask, however, is this: What about the rest of us?"
