Net Neutrality

// noun

EN Net neutrality (NN) equals: No blocking, No throttling, No preferential access. It means that all internet traffic needs to be treated on an equal basis, no matter its type or origin of content or means used to transmit packages. Service providers should be able to deliver traffic from one point to another seamlessly, without any differentiation on speed, access or price. If this would not be the case (and all too often it's not) then the open informative character of internet is in deep danger. If the companies laying out the glassfiber would decide where to steer traffic based on the profit it can make with this, your online world would shrink, and the small voices will be very hard to hear. It is in sharp contrast with the initial goal and philosophy of the internet and heavily criticized by techies all over the globe. For more check out: Google

NL Net Neutrality (NN) staat voor: geen blokkeringen, geen databegrenzing, geen voorkeurstoegang. Het betekent dat alle internetverkeer gelijkwaardig behandeld hoort te worden, ongeacht het type, de oorsprong, inhoud of medium dat er voor gebruikt wordt. Providers moeten het verkeer naadloos van het ene punt naar het ander afleveren, zonder enige differentiatie in snelheid, toegang of prijskaartje. Als dat niet het geval is (en veel te vaak is het dat niet) is het open, informatieve karakter van het internet in groot gevaar. Als de bedrijven die glasvezelkabels leggen, zouden beslissen waar ze het verkeer naartoe sturen afhankelijk van de winst die ze erop kunnen maken, zou je online wereld al snel danig krimpen. En de kleine stemmen gaan een pak moeilijker te horen zijn. Dergelijke dingen staan in scherp contrast met het initiële doel en de filosofie van het internet, en wordt hevig bekritiseerd door techies over heel de wereld.

What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).
