War games now include cyber-preparation.  For the first time in its history, the US Army and Japan’s Ground Self Defense Forces’ annual bilateral exercise Yama Sakura is incorporating cyber defense scenarios into the playbook. In this video Army Sergeant Nate Bowen takes us inside to show how they’re preparing for attacks in cyberspace.

This ‘Handimation through Glass’ is a short stop-motion film that follows a surreal moment on a lazy Sunday morning spent in a coffee shop. Made by a group of animator and filmmaker friends in New York, the clip consists of more than 1,000 photos and drawings, and was shot over four days using +Google Glass. Take a look and tell us what you think of the creation. #throughglass .

Do men and women use social media differently? That's the question a new study from the Oxford Internet Institute aimed to answer. Are you surprised by the findings?

Where do +Wikipedia entries come from?

The Terra Incognita project visualises how +Wikipedia has evolved over the last decade, mapping the geographic articles for more than 50 languages. According to the creators, TraceMedia, the maps highlight “cultural biases, unexpected areas of focus, the overlaps between languages, and regions that are unique to a language”.

This data is available in many formats, including on +Google Maps and on Kartograph, but TraceMedia have also captured the data on a series of vidoes. This video shows the spread of English-language pages.

+The Guardian produced an interactive “Download Deathmatch”, allowing users to compare internet speeds worldwide. Using data from the Ookla NetIndex, compiled from users of Ookla’s internet speed-test service, and based on a rolling mean of the last 30 days, the presentation allows users to compare download and upload times, and internet call quality.  Take the test yourself here: http://goo.gl/JuhMVj

+Anton Volnov not at mine, they had a few general computer classes but that was about it. The thing is they should be teaching a lot more computer stuff. in the 21st century I think computers and programming should be a general course not just some course you can take if interested. We are in an age where technology is playing a huge part in our society and we should adjust the way we teach to reflect that. I also think it should start from a young age. I taught my 8 year old cousin how to write a program in basic. I think kids that age should be learning that stuff along with math, science and social studies. Just as a normal subject in school. Its high time schools moved into the 21st century, education these days is outdated.

Have you checked out this new campaign to reform government surveillance? What do you think?
 
Today, we joined seven leading tech companies—AOL, Apple, Facebook, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter and Yahoo—in calling on governments around the world to reform their surveillance laws. In an open letter, we are asking the President and Congress to take the lead and ensure that American surveillance efforts are clearly restricted by law, proportionate to the risks, transparent and subject to independent oversight: http://goo.gl/1wYGII
It is time for the world’s governments to address the practices and laws regulating government surveillance.

A digital surveillance method in development by German police has been dubbed ‘Nazi Shazam’, as it allows them identify far-right rock songs from a tiny sample. Police could use the technology to efficiently identify neo-Nazi music on Internet radio stations or in public. However, there are legal concerns over the method, including whether its use in public situations constitutes surveillance.

What do you think of this new system? You can read more about it here: http://goo.gl/rROGOU

Many points of view, one amazing Internet.
Introduction
The Internet is a great force for progress and innovation, but it also raises plenty of tough questions. At Google, we believe the Internet is better for everyone when we tackle those issues. We created the Big Tent to bring together people with diverse points of view to debate the Internet and its impact on society. This Google+ page is the place to get involved in those debates from Big Tent events. It’s open to everyone - we hope you’ll join in.
