online experience : What will happen if the internet is run by women?

Woman Use Internet: Our online experience would be very different without the male monopoly on the Internet but even if it did the Internet would not be all good.

On the night of 29 October 1969 21 year old student Charlie Klein was hunched over a computer screen. They were sitting in a windowless room with pale green walls at US the University of California Los Angeles.

What will happen if the internet is run by women

His computer science supervisor Leonard Kleinrock was sitting next to him watching him work when Klein typed a word. Within moments Klein message appeared on a screen a hundred & fifty miles away at Stanford University reading the English letters LO.

It was actually a very bad start as Klein system crashed before he had even typed in the full login word but people on both sides cheered.

This was because it was 1st time 2 computers had completed virtual messaging. This moment can be called the moment of birth of internet.

At the time it was called ARPANET a computer system built by United State US Department of Defense to send information between computers on a network.

50 years later Internet today has evolved from a military experiment of 4 computers to a civilian & commercial product that has led to a global cyberspace.

It took thousands of people to create the technology that allows you to read words on a screen. Many of them are women including Radia Perlman an American engineer & mathematician who made Internet routing sustainable and scalable Karen Spark Jones a British computer scientist whose work is often the basis of search engines  His compatriot Sophie Wilson who was instrumental in designing British news Micro & also in building the ARM microprocessors that are found in more than half of the world electronics.

Although many women helped create technology that powers the Internet companies that dominate it today are predominantly run by men.

Mar Hicks associate professor of mathematics at the Illinois Institute of Technology says Women were instrumental in the beginning of computing &  programming.

Dame Stephanie Shirley who founded a female led software company in the 60s says her role was often underappreciated. She says that although women had a role in it the Internet was mostly designed by men.

If you dig deeper cast consisted of straight white men from Silicon Valley.

But what would the Internet be like if a more diverse group of people in terms of se-xua-lity ethnicity & gender had designed it? If women & people belonging to minority communities were included & their input was taken in its design.

It's not possible to go back & change history at this point but this hypothetical question begs the question of how men have left such an indelible mark on Internet. These impressions are present in our structure & appearance &  also in the means we use to communicate with others.

Obviously this is not necessarily case if women &  minorities had a role in its creation but most experts believe that it would have-been. If sothen what would be the outward appearance of these various decisions? & would we have envisioned an alternative Internet that was fair & protective for all?

Charlotte Webb who teaches internet equality at University of the Arts London and co-founded the NGO Feminist Internet believes the online world would be very different if decision making was in the hands of women & minority groups.

Most of the online platforms today are being operated according to the same ideology that is to collect user information load them with advertisements & make money from it.

Black women were particularly early targets of online trolls on social media

Webb believes that social media prioritizes advertising revenue attention & economy. He believes that all these ideologies lead to a patriarchal capitalist & often black society. Obviously chief executives from women and minority groups may also be profit oriented interestingly in some countries companies with more female board members tend to outperform companies with more female board members. male board members including some of the world largest companies.

However Webb believes that they may need to make more open minded decisions about adopting other business models. For example those that reflect environmental sustainability social justice corporate responsibility human rights & shared freedom.

I think that if more diverse people are overseeing decision making process more models will emerge with different perspectives cultures & preferences she says.

A more diverse team may also be a precursor to an Internet that is more international & more sensitive to non Western cultures. It could save itself from an embarrassing situation like the 01 that happened in 2016 when Indian Supreme Court ordered Google Yahoo &  Microsoft Bing to sell ultrasound and prenatal se-x testing services which were illegal in the country .has talked about ending ads.

Gender imbalance is a major problem in India &  there is a high rate of female abortion.

Search engines were also ordered to block 43 keywords related to this testing.

Anupam Chandra professor of law & technology at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. says If more people were non white there would be a greater sensitivity that when we start working in another country we need local people. There will be a need to understand culture. It requires specific cultural knowledge to recognize that something objectionable is happening.

If women & minorities were in control of the Internet they would focus on security features & manage online content very differently.

Women can often see the world in a way that means they are more likely to see problems that men might not otherwise notice.

Search engines and social media platforms rely on a combination of artificial intelligence & human moderators to flag illegal fake & harmful content.

Ari Waldman is a professor of law & computer science at Northeastern University. They say that online content laws disproportionately remove any content that does not conform to system building conventions & human moderators.

Karolina R. is researching online language at the University of North Umbria in the UK. He agrees with Professor Ari Waldman.

Control over content is the same as in a patriarchal society what women can & can not do with their bodies & then punish them if they deviate from a certain prescribed path she says. There is a tradition.

She believes that if the internet race was in the hands of women it would be a very different place.

Carolina R is also a pole dancer & regularly posts her photos & videos online. They do not contain nudity or any kind of .. content yet their TikTok & Instagram accounts are sometimes suspended & sometimes deleted without their immediate knowledge. .

After the latest incident Instagram contacted him & told him that his account was reinstated a day later. He was told that the reason for suspension was a mistake.

She says that sometimes women are banned simply because of their bodies even though they have not had any .. activity.

She explains that some of her friends who are black & healthy are threatened to have their account deleted when they post in their bikinis.

As soon as she puts her picture up there's a warning that means it's under automatic control.

It doesn't happen with men. Clearly in the eyes of those running the social media platform being a woman is tantamount to se-xual activity.

They believe that if women & minorities have control people will-be able to express themselves better without fear of backlash or censorship.

Susie Dunn is an assistant professor of law at Dalhousie University in Canada. They say that we often see content on the Internet that contributes to the proliferation of negative views of women &  their gender identity.

Safia Noble is an Associate Professor of Information Studies at UCLA. In his 2018 book Algorithm of Operation he expressed concern about how searches for black Latina Hispanic or Asian girls often lead to porn sites.

In a 2013 awareness campaigns UN  United Nations emphasized the point that when the words women do it are typed into Google auto search engine the results yield answers such as stay at home slave. Go stay in the kitchen.

While women do not do it results like do not take rights vote or work come up.

Noble writes that some type of Internet search is also evident in the form of racial discrimination. He gave the example of how when typing in words like beautiful or professor mostly images of white people appeared.

In another example he wrote that searching for unconventional hairstyles in workplace brought up images of black women which caused quite a stir in 2016.

Abigail Curlew is a PhD student at Carleton University in Ottawa. He says that the alternative internet could be a diverse space but I think it's not just a fantasy.

Lillian Edwards is Professor of Law, Innovation and Society at the University of Newcastle United Kingdom UK.

She says that social media shows a mirror to the society. He believes that to solve  problems women & minorities face in the online world  Global the violence & discrimination they face in real world must be eradicated.

This they say means giving them access to better education medical facilities & facilities such as housing
