Balkanizing the Cloud.

“Russia Accuses Facebook, Twitter of Failing to Comply With Data Laws,” The Wall Street Journal, January 22, 2019.  Russian laws require that servers storing the personal data of Russians be located in Russia.  Other countries (e.g., Vietnam) have similar laws.

  • Compliance:  how does a world-wide company comply with the laws of each of the countries that have an interest in the data that is stored?
  • Governance: Who controls the world-wide-web?
  • Information: who has an interest in the personal data of a state’s citizens?
