Business risks when public forums are captured by private companies: Twitter gets to determine what sites can send updates to their users

We need free, open forums so one company does not have to rely on a competing company for its key infrastructure
With Twitter's backing and a slew of features, will Periscope kill Meerkat's sudden rise to fame?

Introduction
Dr. Stuart W. Shulman received a Bachelor's degree from Boston University (Political Science and English) in 1989 and a Ph.D. from the University of Oregon (Political Science) in 1999. 

He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science in the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as well as Director of QDAP-UMass and Associate Director of the National Center for Digital Government. He remains a Senior Research Associate at the University of Pittsburgh’s University Center for Social and Urban Research (UCSUR) and in the Université de Genève-, European University Institute-, and Oxford Internet Institute-based E-Democracy Centre. 

Dr. Shulman was the founder (2005) and Director of UCSUR’s Qualitative Data Analysis Program (QDAP) from 2005-2008 and the sole inventor of the Coding Analysis Toolkit. QDAP and now QDAP-UMass are fee-for-service coding labs that work on projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH), and other U.S. funding agencies. He has been the Principal Investigator and Project Director on related National Science Foundation-funded research projects focusing on electronic rulemaking, human language technologies, manual annotation, digital citizenship, and service-learning efforts in the United States.  In 2007, Dr. Shulman was named Director of the Sara Fine Institute and he became a Core Investigator in the Advanced Center for Interventions and Services Research Network Development Core.

As Director of the NSF-funded eRulemakning Research Group, Dr. Shulman was the organizer and chair for federal agency-level electronic rulemaking workshops funded by the NSF and held at the Council for Excellence in Government (2001), the National Defense University (2002), the National Science Foundation (2003 & 2006), and The George Washington University (2004). In November of 2006, he chaired a NSF-funded workshop at Pitt titled "Coding across the Disciplines," which brought social and computer scientists together to discuss annotation science.

For five years, Dr. Shulman has served on the Program Committee for the NSF’s National Conference on Digital Government Research (dg.o).  He was the dg.o 2006 Workshop and Tutorial Chair and also the Chair of the inaugural Digital Government Society Election Committee.  In 2008 and 2009 he is serving as the dg.o conference Co-Chair and the Co-Chair of "YouTube and the 2008 Election Cycle in the United States". Dr. Shulman reviews individual NSF proposals from multiple cross-cutting NSF divisions and has served on a NSF proposal review panel.

In May 2006, Dr. Shulman became the next Editor of the international Journal of E-Government, which has since been re-named the Journal of Information Technology & Politics. He was the 2004-2005 President of the American Political Science Association's organized section on Information Technology & Politics and for three years he was Editor of the section newsletter, The ITP News. “Stu” is a former Oregon Tilth certified organic farmer and garlic enthusiast who teaches courses on American national government, environmental policy, sprawl, information technology, qualitative research methods, digital citizenship, governance, and service-learning.
