This week’s infographic is about the desire to control information and marketplaces, and is designed by Ivan Tolmachev.
Public protest of the government’s attempt to restrict information on the internet through SOPA / PIPA has postponed the debate for the time being. But the question of open and free data around the world is alive and well.
Next week, Food+Tech Connect will look the attempts to control information in agriculture through patenting seeds, plants and “biological processes,” and how it is consolidating knowledge in the hands of a few.
And we would love to hear from you. Leave us information in the comments section below about where you see the control of agricultural information at work, and where to find more information on the topic. You can also add to the discussion on twitter at @bethfoodtech and @foodtechconnect with the hashtag #foodtech.
