Misstep I didn't think the iPhone boycot would work out as hoped. We shall see how it goes in the end. 

"boycotting the iPhone might simply punish one US company only to reward others"

Moral Panic can foster social control Platforms Are Not Publishers in The Atlantic August 10

"We are often doomed to see the future as the analog of the past. Journalists see screens that contain familiar text and images, and that serve what used to be their ads—and they call that media. Such a mediacentric and egocentric worldview brings too many presumptions and misses too many opportunities.

To call these platforms publishers—as The Atlantic's Adrienne LaFrance recently did—is to presume that their task is merely to produce content. It is to presume, then, that the internet should be produced, packaged, and polished, and that when someone says something bad anywhere on it then the entire internet is beschmutzed. In Europe, it also means that the internet should be regulated, and in a growing list of authoritarian nations—China, Russia, Iran, Turkey—it means that the internet and the public's speech on it should be controlled."

What you call Telecom Gibberish has a definition

""Here is Ashley Crossman's definition: "A moral panic is a widespread fear, most often an irrational one, that someone or something is a threat to the values, safety, and interests of a community or society at large. Typically, a moral panic is perpetuated by news media, fueled by politicians, and often results in the passage of new laws or policies that target the source of the panic. In this way, moral panic can foster increased social control." Sound familiar?"

I am sincerely impressed by the superb Telecom journalism your publicatin has. I thought this is not possible in a dry technological reporting. But you see deep beyond technology, internet and business. You see the humans.
