So far, 2022 has been a turbulent year for equities globally. As investors continue to sell assets amid widespread market uncertainty, we may be seeing a fundamental shift in Wall Street’s historically safest stocks. As the relative security of FAANG businesses continues to be tested, it may be time to reconsider where the power lies in a market that is preparing for the metaverse.

Clearly, it’s worth noting that Nvidia (NVDA) has not been immune to the sell-off in tech stocks on Wall Street. At the time of writing, NVDA is around 47.11% off its all-time high set in November 2021. Additionally, Nvidia’s stock recently fell again following a healthy income report from rival graphics chip company Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).

As the past year shows, Nvidia has seen significant growth as news from the Metaverse sparked widespread optimism among investors about the company’s future role in the latest evolution of the World Wide Web.

Confidence in the stock was such that it remains up more than 21% year-on-year despite a deep correction.

As investors continue to look for indicators regarding demand for Nvidia’s products in the near-term data center and gaming markets, the company’s long-term outlook may be strong enough for its stock to finally gain recognition with the same level of reverence as Wall Street’s age-old FAANG favorites.

Growth ahead of Metaverse Utility

Although Nvidia should see its recent challenges laid bare in a earnings report due May 25the company has no trouble maintaining its market-leading position when it comes to GPU sales.

According to Newegg’s graphics card sales rankings, the company’s GeForce models are completely dominate the current top 10 Also, the entire top 20 is populated by Nvidia products, except for one AMD entry in 15th place, which is the MSI Mech Radeon RX 6600. This means that ‘About 95% of the top 20 selling graphics cards are made by Nvidia.

This puts the company in a good position as the metaverse begins to take shape. Due to the immense computing power involved in creating this new digital frontier and the overall potential the metaverse holds across a range of industries, it is likely that GPU products will be in much greater demand over the next few years. .

“The metaverse will affect nearly every industry on the planet. Regardless of what you do for a living, it’s likely that this technology will find applications in your field in the future,” explained Maxim Manturov, Head of Investment Advisory at Freedom Finance Europe. “Businesses have so many ways to use space technology, from hosting virtual events to mirroring their inventory with 3D models or advertising using AR lenses on Snapchat, Instagram/Facebook, and soon on TikTok. According to analysts at MetaMetric Solutions, real estate sales in the metaverse will top $500 million in 2021 and could double in 2022.”

“People are already ready to invest heavily in ‘internet properties’, including digital real estate, digital fashion, high-end cars, etc. Global giants like Unity, Apple, Meta, Roblox, Microsoft, Nvidia have created their own metaverse and continue to invest.

“MANG” rather than “FAANG”?

Financial analysts at Jefferies recently recommended that investors avoid turning to FAANG + Microsoft and instead consider MANG as a new Wall Street standard. The FAANG stock collective consists of Meta Platforms (FB), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOGL).

Although FAANG companies, alongside Microsoft (MSFT), have been hugely popular over the past decade and beyond, stocks are starting to face deep declines. In the case of Netflix specifically, the stock has fallen over 70% in 2022 alone. Similarly, Facebook is currently seeing a 41% decline in 2022 to date.

Alternatively, the MANG group, which consists of stocks like Microsoft, Apple, Nvidia and Alphabet, represents a better option for investors, due to “their balance sheet, earnings yield and free cash flow yield”. according to Sean Darby, who led the analyst councils at Jefferies. Additionally, Darby pointed out that FAANG + Microsoft is “not a homogenous group” and that MANG offers investors the best opportunity for future returns.

Although Nvidia has also been hit hard by recent sell-offs of tech stocks by investors, its market-leading position in GPU production could leave the company much better positioned to recover more quickly in a market that is expected to assist. to the development of the metaverse. Although we recently saw the strong earnings announcement as a reminder that the threat from rivals is still very much present, Nvidia remains the company best positioned to fuel the metaverse – and that remains a tantalizing prospect for investors.

Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) – Rochester City Council will receive a presentation Monday from a company hired to propose plans for the future of city-owned land along the Zumbro River in downtown Rochester.

Gamble Associates was selected by City Council last July to create the “Riverfront Small Area Plan” for the 2.5-acre site on the west side of the river between 2nd and 4th Streets Southeast, along with a parcel of 3 acres along the north side of 4th Street Southeast which is currently used for Government Center parking. The project was led by a steering committee made up of representatives from the City, DMC and Downtown Alliance.

The main focus of the presentation is the site west of the Government Center which currently contains the old Time Theatre/Red Owl/Legends Bar building and the city’s 2nd Street parking ramp. Two main options are proposed and both call for demolishing the parking ramp and making this part of the site available for commercial development.

The differences between the options relate to the southern two-thirds of the property and the former Legends Bar building which was spared the wrecking ball by the city council last year while the process for the small waterfront area plan was underway. . One option would preserve at least part of the structure and combine it with a “year-round sunken garden” covered public space just to the north. The rest of the site would be an outdoor green space that could be used for recreation, performances and various events.

The second option is to demolish the old Legend’s Bar building and create a public space with elevated walkways and ramps, and open terraced steps that can be used for seating, and green spaces for a variety of activities. The second option also incorporates a “Riverfront Deck” into the Zumbro River.

Plans developed for the parking lots east of the Government Center call for two mixed-use/residential towers along Southeast 4th Street with green space between the buildings and the river for public use. This could include community gardens, a flex plaza, and a kayak or canoe launch.

After studying art history at Middlesex University, Sadie Coles, 59, worked at Bristol’s Arnolfini, then at the Anthony d’Offay gallery where she specialized in young artists like Sarah Lucas and Grayson Perry. In 1997, she created her influential gallery, Sadie Coles HQ, in the West End of London. Artists she represents include Lucas, John Currin, Helen Marten and Alvaro Barrington. Last year she received an OBE for her services to art.

How has Brexit affected your business?
What is interesting is the perception that he [trade] will be more difficult. Post-Brexit, London is still a world-class city and still performs brilliantly in terms of location, language and time. So I feel like there is going to be a painful period where people will realize that the barriers they imagined don’t actually exist. A little correction will be a good thing because it will inspire everyone to try harder, to rethink things, to be a little more creative.

How do you decide to work with an artist?
I see something that makes me curious. Work that does something original and moves the needle. I ask other artists who they like or who they watch. Or critics or museum people. I see a lot of shows, so the lockdown was pretty tough because it was two years without travelling, which meant you were watching shows digitally rather than in real life.

LATAH OSB, 2022, by Seth Price, one of the artists at Sadie Coles HQ. Photography: Robert Glowacki/© Seth Price, courtesy of Sadie Coles HQ, London.

have you decide to work with someone based on something you’ve only seen online?
No. I always want to see things and talk to the artist. Go stand in their studio. I want to feel their passion for what they do. When you set up a program for your gallery, it cannot be a monoculture. You want to reflect the world, and the world is changing all the time. Art has become politicized over the past two or three years because the issues we face have changed and our anxieties have increased.

You say “more political”, are there others punches?
Artists are using new mediums and platforms to make art, and NFTs [non-fungible tokens] are an example of this, although I personally think the name is a red herring. We should say “digital art” because it’s just a new medium that artists are using through a new technology, the blockchain. So it’s a change, but a lot of ways of communicating have changed. Obviously during lockdown there has been a boom in the number of people viewing and buying art digitally. But it had always happened. People were buying art on Jpegs before the lockdown. The biggest revolution of my entire career as an art dealer has been the Internet, because when I started working for Anthony d’Offay there was no fax machine, there was no World Wide Web . The fact that you can reach a global audience from your desktop has transformed the art market into this open and recently democratized market.

Are there parameters of what an NFT can and can’t be or does it just exist as a digital thing?
We are at the very beginning of where digital art can live and be collected and what artists are doing with it as a medium. There will be great developments and innovations that will affect the content and come from the medium.

So it’s defined right now?
Great art is great art, so if an artist does something really interesting in a digital form, to me, that’s just as exciting as someone doing a great painting.

David Bowie posed under the K. West sign in Heddon Street, London, for the cover of his 1972 album Ziggy Stardust.
Sadie Coles’ first gallery was in Heddon Street, London, next to where the cover of David Bowie’s album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars was photographed. Photograph: Brian Ward/The David Bowie Archive/PA

Your first gallery was on Hedon Streetright next to where Ziggy Stardust the sleeve was knocked down. Was the K.West sign still there? Yes, when I first opened.

And did you see people coming to pose?
A lot of tourists. The phone booth is still there so you always have people taking pictures. When David Bowie died, there was a huge pile of flowers – Princess Diana style – on the street where the sign should have been.

Has it ever come to your gallery?
He came to the first Sarah Lucas show that we did as what is now called a pop-up, in a warehouse in St John Street. He came with Charles Saatchi and he was really interested in all the energy of the YBA group at that time. He invited us all to a concert, I remember.

Was there a particular work of art that made you realize you wanted to be a gallery owner?
One of the first objects that piqued my interest was Tutankhamun’s mask. I was around 10 years old. We waited in line for six hours to get in and there was this feeling of anticipation and excitement and then this dark tunnel, which replicated entering the pyramids. And then the bright blue and gold stuff at the bottom – I was kind of like, “Ooh aah, this is what I want in my life!”

We met when Pulp asked to use reproductions of John Currin paintings in the video for Help the elderlyHave you been reluctant to allow the use of an artist’s work in a pop video?
No, because the synergy between John’s work and your vision was perfect. There was this kind of sleazy around Pulp at that time. For example, I really like this song Underwear and it couldn’t be closer to John’s singular vision.

I also liked how undogmatic you were about making replicas of the paintings, if you remember. They are still in the Rough Trade office, very faded, as I recently passed by and saw them. But you agreed that we didn’t have to borrow the artwork to put in the country house for the video. John was enthusiastic about your music. There was a lot shared, so it was good, and you remained great friends.

What is the IGA (International Galleries Alliance) initiative that you have just launched?
He came out of confinement. There was this feeling, that everyone felt, of the unknown and how to negotiate it. And then it became a more conceptual question of what the future will be for the art world and how can we come together to be stronger. There are now 260 members worldwide.

I hope some of the collegial collaboration and communication that took place during the lockdown will continue. I think isolation has made real-world experiences—walking in a park, for example—much more desirable than they used to be. In many ways, the fact that we are so digitally saturated means that real-world experiences are more valuable than ever.

There’s always this misunderstanding that advancements in technology will kill the thing in front of them, but they often make that thing better. So I don’t think digital will replace art or objects or IRL experiences.

We’re not all going to have to live in the metaverse for the rest of our lives.?
Nope! A person’s experience in the metaverse may well lead you to the actual experience or vice versa – that’s an improvement I guess, that’s how I see it.

Art Is Not Human, an exhibition of works by Seth Price, is at Sadie Coles Headquarters, 62 Kingly Street, London W1 until 28 May 2022

How could we create a better Internet? https://pagerank-tracking.com/how-could-we-create-a-better-internet/ Wed, 04 May 2022 05:30:00 +0000 https://pagerank-tracking.com/how-could-we-create-a-better-internet/ James Muldoon, author and lecturer in political science at the University of Exeter, goes even further. ​“There is nothing necessarily progressive about decentralization,” he wrote in a recent article, Why Web3 Can’t Fix Internet.

James Muldoon, author and lecturer in political science at the University of Exeter, goes even further. There is nothing necessarily progressive about decentralization,” he wrote in a recent article, Why Web3 Can’t Fix Internet. He thinks Web3 is unlikely to significantly redistribute value, as it does not challenge the fundamental trend towards commodification that now dominates the web. Despite the analogy of public squares, too often crypto communities feel exclusive and impenetrable – more like private members’ clubs tacked to the side of Web2’s vast business complex.

My view is that the internet is broken because it’s a business,” Ben Tarnoff, author of Internet for the people: the fight for our digital future, tell me. In other words, the various dysfunctions and depredations of the Internet are inextricable from the fact that it is privately owned and operated for profit. If it is this profit motive that is breaking the Internet – making it suitable, not for public use, but for plunder by the wealthiest men in the world – then the insertion of digital token systems into communities in line will not be enough to radically transform it. As Tarnoff says, a better Internet would be one in which people, not profit, ruled.

There is growing momentum behind the idea of ​​deprivatizing the internet; to treat it as a public good. In his book, Tarnoff pleads for the creation of a public stack in which every layer of our digital media – even the pipes that carry internet across the oceans and in our homes – is becoming more democratic. Other activists and theorists think along the same lines. Some have argued for to break up platform monopolies in small enterprisesor, as James Muldoon suggests in his book Platform socialismdelegating ownership and control to workers and technology users as cooperatives.

Others like Alexander Monea, author of The Digital Closet: How the Internet Got Straight, suggest that platforms should be publicly owned. I think the internet should be a public service,” says Monea, including everything from its physical infrastructure and web access to the platforms that increasingly constitute our entire Internet experience.

So what would a public Internet look like?

If I had to imagine it,” says Monea, it would be a simple interface for sharing, interacting and discovering multimedia content, probably with a simplistic and/or rollback interface. » It offers a mix of Reddit without the toxicity and Craigslist without the lack of accountability, perhaps with elements of Twitch and TikTok mixed in. But perhaps the best model we already have is Wikipedia.

Potentially, then, turning the internet from a private mall to a public library might mean it doesn’t look all that different. Users could still chat, create and share content and join communities, but the major change would be that it’s not monetized with targeted ads. This in turn would remove incentives to collect personal data through surveillance.

The bottom line is that, as Tarnoff says, an Internet where the people rule” – from broadband networks owned by municipalities and cooperatives, to worker-owned, app-based services and self-sustaining social media communities – would mean considering the Internet as basic infrastructure and an essential service tied with water and electricity. In a better world”, artist based in London Cecile B. Evans suggests, the answer to what would a better Internet look like? would be “(trans)nationalized”.

The fight for a better Internet is, fundamentally, inseparable from the fight for a better world. When I see long breathless threads describing gonzo resistance tactics in reaction to the takeover of Twitter by an apartheid trust fund,” Evans says, I wish people would stick to using that energy to imagine dismantling the version of capitalism that we find ourselves in.

Essentially, we can either have a democratic public Internet that prioritizes collective comfort and safety, or a commercialized Internet that benefits a handful of white men in California. To create a better Internet is to fight for solidarity and social justice. Another world is possible. And, as Ben Tarnoff says, another social network is possible, but we must fight for it to be so.

The month of May is known as the month of accomplished young people, celebrating the achievements of young people around the world. The goal is to help young people realize their potential and it focuses on building strong independent leaders for the future. To celebrate this, we’ll be looking at everyday people who changed history.

Rosa Parks was sitting on a Montgomery bus in 1955 when she refused to give up her seat to a white man. The racist rules enforced at the time meant that when she disobeyed the driver’s order to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus, she was arrested for civil disobedience. It was this act of defiance and the subsequent Montgomery bus boycott that was a pivotal moment in the fight for equality. When Rosa Parks woke up that morning, she had no idea that later that day she would change history.

JK Rowling is best known for writing the Harry Potter series of books, but as a recently divorced single mother, she had no idea how popular her work was. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published in 1997 under the name JK Rowling because its publisher didn’t believe young boys would be interested in reading a book written by a woman. Over 500 million copies of Harry Potter have been sold worldwide and Rowling is the richest author in the world with a net worth of $1 billion. To have your work rejected to be a bestselling author is a huge accomplishment.

Sir Tim Berners Lee is the creator of the World Wide Web, he was an average British computer scientist who came up with a project that combined hypertext (the system that allows you to click on links and open web pages) and the Internet. The goal was to give researchers a place to share information so that people could see it at any time of the day. The World Wide Web that we know today is the result. He was knighted in 2004 and his invention was named the number one moment that shaped the world.

Whether your passion is art or mathematics. Whether you want to create a cure for cancer or travel to space, the future is bright. In May, celebrate Young Achiever Month and encourage young people to reach their full potential.

No wonder that today the World Wide Web has become an important part of our modern life. Moreover, we can use it not only for business or educational purposes, or for communication, or for shopping, but also for all kinds of entertainment.

According to statistics, a fairly large number of users love online games. Of course, they do not always choose casinos, because there are many other entertainment tools. However, we cannot say that the number of players in online clubs is steadily increasing every year. Let’s learn the most fascinating facts about online clubs and loyalty programs that organizations as reliable as SlotClub provide to their customers.

A few facts about online clubs

These establishments are relatively young in the online entertainment market. However, in recent years, they have become very popular, because one can stay at home and at the same time enjoy all the variety of games and fully immerse themselves in the gaming world.

Here are some interesting facts about online clubs:

• The first online club was opened in 1997. With the development of the World Wide Web, their number has increased, and now the number of legally operating virtual gambling houses exceeds 2000.

• In an online club, you can win quite a large amount. For example, a resident of Finland managed to win 18 million euros in Mega Fortune.

• Some players are afraid to play online. For them, online lotteries have appeared in many casinos, which sometimes bring the casino up to 50% of the profits.

• Residents of Cyprus leave the most money in online clubs: 2.5 million euros for 800,000 inhabitants. At the same time, Australian residents leave the most money in real casinos.

Are the Kiwis winning or losing when it comes to game security? https://pagerank-tracking.com/are-the-kiwis-winning-or-losing-when-it-comes-to-game-security/ Tue, 26 Apr 2022 21:11:00 +0000 https://pagerank-tracking.com/are-the-kiwis-winning-or-losing-when-it-comes-to-game-security/ It’s safe to say that the gaming landscape has changed significantly over the years.

It’s safe to say that the gaming landscape has changed significantly over the years. Gone are the days of the first generation ATARI consoles and Nintendo Gameboys, which had no internet connection or access. Whether online via a Sony or Microsoft console or a PC, the internet is now driving the future of gaming.

What started as a simple waste of time has now grown into a multi-billion dollar industry, encompassing sport, competition and celebrity. Online games have created endless opportunities for creators and interested parties to share their gaming experiences with the world, and new communities are popping up every day.

Many of these communities are based right here in Aotearoa, and according to the IGEA NZ 2022 report, COVID-19 has dramatically increased gaming statistics. 3.7 million Kiwis (73%) are said to play video games in general, and a out of three would be actively involved in gameplay publishing and online communication.

Communities such as esports, live streaming/twitch and game development are also on the rise in New Zealand, with 86% of respondents believing the gaming industry is important to our economy and 72% saying the government should encourage the gambling industry.

So as a country, it’s clear that we love the game and we’re getting into the game at a rapid pace. But as with any online activity, there are significant risks that come with this kind of growing engagement. The gaming space is a breeding ground for cybersecurity threats and scams, with threat actors exploiting both the technical and psychological side of the gaming experience.

Kiwi gamers have been hit hard financially in the past, with Norton research revealing that two in five gamers in New Zealand suffered a cyberattack in 2021. The average amount of money lost in such attacks is over $700, which is worrying. given that a large majority of players are still under the age of 18. In comparison, US players lost an average of only $104, signaling a significant problem in Aotearoa.

67% of respondents have experienced some financial impact, and have already reported in a recent Techday articleNortonLifeLock Senior APAC Director Mark Gorrie called for better game security.

“New Zealand is a small, wealthy nation, which makes it a prime target for cybercriminals. The financial losses of gamers should serve as a reminder for gamers to start improving their digital hygiene,” he said. he declares.

Online gamer Gamer BigCheeseKIT also said in the article that the nationwide gaming security issue is widespread and various communities in the casual and professional gaming industries are at risk.

“I’ve learned that when playing online it’s so important to be aware of your online friends and the information you share when playing online. While this is especially true for professional gamers who have this public profile, it’s clear that this goes for any online gamer,” he remarked.

Doxing was a key threat uncovered in the survey, and nearly one in five (19%) said they had been doxed or had personal information stolen and shared it publicly online. Many Kiwi players have also been found to exploit loopholes and cheats to gain a competitive advantage, increasing the risk of being attacked and exploited.

“Unfortunately, cybercriminals are hyper-aware of the exploit market and use them to scam those looking for an advantage in the usual way,” Gorrie said.

“They use dubious links and hide malware in downloads that are advertised as rare items, in-game currency or exploits to provide a competitive advantage. Clicking on a malicious link can lead to your data being lost , passwords, accounts and financial details.”

While there are a host of threats in the New Zealand gaming community, there are also forces at work trying to protect gamers. With esports being one of the biggest gaming trends on the rise, we spoke to New Zealand Esports Federation CEO Jonathan Jansen who revealed what is being done to help keep the sport safe and what players can do to increase their personal safety. .

“Due to its rigid structure and nature, esports is a much safer way to engage in gaming than being left to your own devices on the World Wide Web,” he says.

Nothing is without risk though, he says.

“As for games in general, cybersecurity issues can include things like the source where you download your games from, signing up to websites/games using the same passwords, lack of ‘information about how your information is stored, encrypted or processed, game account sharing related to personal information, social engineering and phishing.’

Jansen says being informed and educated is key to operating and promoting safe gaming behavior, and the NZESF has strict security standards and practices in place to prevent a variety of cybersecurity issues.

“Education plays an important role in creating safer esports communities,” he says.

“The first line of defense is the New Zealand Esports Federation sanctioned event process. Esports organizations whose processes have been audited to high standards, including proper data management, police records and other best practices will use our mark as a sign of trust.”

On advice to casual and competitive players in New Zealand, Jansen thinks there are a few key things to keep in mind, mainly involving being aware and cautious of the opportunities that arise.

“If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is! It’s tempting for players to look for ways to gain advantages in games, and often you’ll find them, but they’re never what they are.” they seem to be.”

He recommends downloading only verified game content through official channels and doing everything possible to protect your private and personal data online. Checking URLs for misspellings, ensuring a secure lock icon is present, and ensuring data is encrypted are just a few of the ways to stay safe.

While there is currently no funding for esports security, Jansen says the NZESF devotes many resources to esports security.

“At this point, the NZESF is working to create the resources and processes that we can to make the esports space a safe place.”

netsafe also offers a variety of free resources on its website to advise Kiwi players on how to stay safe online. They recommend checking the security and privacy features of any device you play on and seeking help and assistance when you think your security has been breached.

Keep your feet on the ground also has some helpful New Zealand-specific advice for parents of young console and PC gamers to help them stay safe online, with links to official New Zealand-related safety sites for game channels. games.

As we strive to keep gamers safe, our New Zealand gaming community must always be “on top of their game” to stay ahead in these times of heightened cyber risk.

In the words of Mark Gorrie on the state of New Zealand gaming security, “Cybercriminals will charge you for a fake cheat and then steal your financial information or credentials. In their own words, Kiwi gamers must ‘become vouchers” and avoid these dangers. as well as powerful online security software to help prevent breaches from occurring.”

Federal rules still unclear on website access for people with disabilities https://pagerank-tracking.com/federal-rules-still-unclear-on-website-access-for-people-with-disabilities/ Wed, 20 Apr 2022 19:34:39 +0000 https://pagerank-tracking.com/federal-rules-still-unclear-on-website-access-for-people-with-disabilities/ Legal experts say they have been waiting years for specific federal standards from the Department of Justice regarding website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Legal experts say they have been waiting years for specific federal standards from the Department of Justice regarding website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

It’s an area plagued by lawsuits, as plaintiffs and disability advocates accuse some sites of having barriers that make it difficult for some people with disabilities to navigate.

The DOJ, which enforces the ADA, hasn’t said when or if it might issue standards, but its recently released guidelines explain why website accessibility matters, give examples of accessibility barriers and indicate existing industry standards, including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as a means of achieving compliance.

Still, some legal experts like Minh Vu, a partner in Seyfarth Shaw’s Washington office and head of the firm’s ADA Title III specialist practice team, say “the advice isn’t particularly helpful.”

This “still leaves open the possibility of compliance in some other way beyond WCAG, but it doesn’t say what,” she says. Vu notes that the guidelines state that “businesses and state and local governments can currently choose how they will ensure that the programs, services and goods they provide online are accessible to people with disabilities.” Among the “Helpful Hints” resources, he points to WCAG, a standard created by the World Wide Web Consortium. But Vu wants to “see a legally binding agreement [federal] regulations that set detailed and clear standards for websites.

Jennifer Sherven, a partner at Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck LLP in Woodbury, also said the guidelines were “disappointing” in that they did not address specific technical standards.

It still leaves the door open to interpretation and litigation by stating that there is flexibility for companies in how they comply, but “does not specifically say what type of flexibility”, such as the use of a 24/7/365 phone line ask for help or the use of automated complementary accessibility solutionshe says.

Courts can’t agree

She also would have liked the DOJ to address those topics that have sparked differing judicial opinions, including differences between U.S. Court of Appeals circuits over whether ADA standards apply to companies such as online retailers without a physical location.

A DOJ spokesperson said: “The purpose of guidance documents is not to create new laws or standards (which is not permitted in a guidance document). Instead, this document responds to calls from the public for the Department to clarify obligations under the ADA with respect to website accessibility… To this end, the guidance is bringing together existing content in a form that is useful for non-experts to understand the web accessibility.

Yet the DOJ has worked to enforce accessibility where the legal obligations are sufficiently clear. More recently, the DOJ announced a settlement agreement with CVS Pharmacy regarding access for persons with disabilities to online registration of COVID-19 vaccines. One issue was that the types of vaccination appointments offered by CVS (which included influenza, pneumonia, and others, in addition to COVID-19) were not audibly played to reader users. screen.

Shortcomings cited

Albert J. Rizzi, Founder and CEO of MyBlindSpot.org, a New York-based nonprofit that provides training and guidance to organizations to support their digital accessibility initiatives, says there is “an enormous amount shortcomings” regarding the accessibility of websites.

Rizzi from Bellport, who is blind, says he faces obstacles every day.

Among them: sites poorly coded to accommodate assistive technologies like screen readers that read printed text aloud and/or those that lack descriptive text or sufficient information to let them know what they’re clicking on. .

He did not expect the DOJ guidelines to define specific standards, noting that industry standards such as WCAG already exist for businesses.

“I don’t think it’s the government’s job to give us a roadmap,” Rizzi says.

The blame should lie with companies that tend to “include funding for potential litigation in their budgets rather than funding to build digital equity and authentic inclusion in their digital platforms,” ​​Rizzi says. He also said that digital accessibility should be part of the core curricula of universities.

Mike Caprara, chief information officer at the Viscardi Center in Albertson, which offers website accessibility services including website auditing and usability testing, agrees, noting that there are to “programmers and developers coming out of colleges who don’t know what the standards are and how to code for them.”

He was disappointed that the DOJ hadn’t released more concrete federal compliance standards, noting that the guidelines “were sort of a reinforcement of the ADA and WCAG standards.” Still, he believes that “a lot of companies don’t feel they have to do anything unless they get sued” and should prioritize accessibility instead.

Caprara said that in addition to broad website accessibility, companies need to ensure that documents such as PDFs, Word and PowerPoint are compliant and compatible with screen readers and that video content is captioned or offered in alternative formats such as audio descriptions.

“If companies don’t commit to digital equity, their competitors will,” says Rizzi.

Quick fact:

Nationally, 2,895 ADA Title III website accessibility lawsuits were filed in federal courts in 2021, an increase of 14% from 2020. The number of site accessibility cases Webs filed in the Eastern District of New York, which includes Long Island, was 384 in 2021 compared to 275 in 2020.

The Telangana government has extended its support for the brand new Web3, a third generation web framework that advocates a decentralized delivery of the web, the ecosystem.

He asked start-ups working in this space and other stakeholders to provide feedback on what kind of support they might need to develop Web 3.0-based products and technologies. Addressing a Web 3.0 meeting here on Sunday, Telangana’s IT secretary, Jayesh Ranjan, discussed issues such as privacy and monetizing internet users’ digital footprints without their consent.

The way the internet has formed over the past few years, where big tech companies have monopolized the internet, there have been gross breaches of privacy, he said. “Although we don’t yet have a concrete framework or policy for Web3, we would like to become one of the first states to support this initiative.”

Three-pronged strategy

Stating that the Telangana government has been promoting new technologies since 2014 when the new state was formed, he said the government has followed a three-pronged strategy while announcing a policy framework. “We have developed a comprehensive policy after holding discussions with stakeholders and establishing an institution to implement the policy. To run the institute, we hire the right people,” he said.

“Our initiatives have now yielded encouraging results. The number of incubators increased to around 70 in 2022 from just two in 2014. The number of start-ups increased to 6,750 from 200 during the period,” he pointed out.

“Our approach will be exactly the same when it comes to Web3. We would love to hear feedback from the community. We will be happy if Hyderabad becomes an important center of Web3 globally,” he said.
