Legacy of 1804 on Digicel Blocks VoIPs in the Caribbean #Haiti #LOF1804 #netneutrality





Digicel has blocked VoIP access (Viber, Tango etc) in Haiti, Trinidad and Jamaica. Other cell phone carriers such as Lime have done so as well. This has generated a firestorm on Caribbean social media, at least one petition and a reaction by the Trinidadian Telecom regulatory body which reinstated VoIPs in Trinidad while it deliberates the issue.

Join me in my capacity as LOF1804 weekly host and head of  the Americas Desk  at Internet Without Borders this Friday July 11 at 9PM EA as I welcome:

We have a new show link because of technical difficulties:
I'm broadcasting live on the air! Listen in now at http://tobtr.com/s/6670679. #BlogTalkRadio #lof1804 #digicel #VoIPs


UPDATE 2 (SHOW AUDIO):

UPDATE 3 - HIGHLIGHTS:

Speakers gave us an update of where things stand in their respective jurisdictions. In Trinidad services have been restored while TATT deliberates. In Haiti and Jamaica, applications are still blocked.

Pascal Antoine pointed out that Digicel's competitor NatCom has not blocked VoIPs.

Panelists answered the following questions and more:

Why have Haiti's Conatel and its Jamaican equivalent still not pronounced themselves on the VoIP block?
Why are cell phone providers doing this block now?
Have workaround applications to the block surfaced in the Caribbean?
How long have cell phone providers wanted to block VoIPs? According to Michele Marius this is just the latest development in a long battle between carriers and VoIPs.
Is this a dangerous precedent for net neutrality in the region and globally? What if Digicel decides it wants to block an app by a Haitian congressional candidate it does not like?
What is the state of Caribbean innovation?

Legacy of 1804 on Maurice Bishop and Grenada Revolution #lof1804 #forwardever







Join me and Michelle Materre, founder of Creatively Speaking Film Series and host of Creativey Speaking on the Air tonight June 20th at 9PM as we welcome Bruce Paddington, maker of the documentary Forward Ever. The film investigates the Grenadian revolution of 1979 which culminated in the killing of Maurice Bishop and several of his colleagues in 1983. (Bruce is with us for the first half hour.)

We are then joined by Trinidadian-American trade unionist Roger Toussaint and cultural activist Martin Felix who came of age in Grenada during the revolution, to explore aspects of this oft neglected chapter of Caribbean history. How was this movement for self-determination launched in the pre-social media era? Why did Reagan take exception to the building of an international airport in Grenada? Did US involvement start at the post-killing invasion or was the Grenadian movement for self-determination infiltrated and destabilized?

Originally aired on Creatively Speaking On the Air June 18, 2014. There will be no live Q and A tonight.

Forward Ever will be screening FREE Friday June 20 at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn at 6PM and again at 4PM Saturday June 21 at Maisles Theater in Harlem. Purchase tickets for Harlem screening this Saturday here: http://maysles.org/mdc/forward-ever-the-killing-of-a-revolution/.

Legacy of 1804 with Gary Dauphin #LOF1804 #netneutrality






Join me this Friday at 9PM as Gary Dauphin  and I discuss the potential negative impact of recent net neutrality rulings on the vibrant web of Haitian online media from blogs to radio. See the story: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=312794429. The main concern is that a proposed FCC rule will give media giants priority "pay to play" faster speed access to users.

Gary Dauphin is a Los Angeles-based digital media manager and writer. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of annenberg.usc.edu, at USC's Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism.
Gary's writing has appeared in Bidoun, Essence, Interview, Lacanian Ink, The Root.com, Vibe magazine, the Village Voice, and other print and online publications. He has also held a number of senior positions at leading African American-market websites, including founding Director and Editor-in-Chief of AOL Black Voices, Editor-in-Chief of Africana.com and Editor-in-Chief and Site Manager of BlackPlanet.com. He also worked extensively in public radio and television, and was Vice President, Digital at KCETLink, the nation's largest independent public television station. He also maintains a consulting practice where he assists organizations with technical and strategic issues around online community, ethnicity, and editorial programming.

Gary was born and raised in New York City to Haitian parents, and studied film theory at Yale University. You can always find him on Twitter.
