About Net Neutrality

Net neutrality is a broad subject open to debate, but an important step has been made in this area at the legal level as in France because the United States officially come to recognize the Internet as a neutral public service and providers do not have the right to discriminate, oppress or block the access and the flow without a court order.

Like any legislation, this is the theoretical part that remains to apply to all without exception, professionals as individuals and suppliers as users.

Indeed, despite its shortcomings, Internet allows to save lives and it is therefore an important technology because it helps to protect people and their health, and therefore the implementation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Constitution, and regardless of the lies that are peddled on it, this is an inevitable means of manifestation of knowledge and truth.

Update of the description of services:


Are interfaces evil or misused?

There are several considerations

And practices concerning interfaces

Some developers say that interfaces can be used as a replacement of multiple inheritance mechanisms, which cause complexity and ambiguity. But each feature must be implemented each time it is declared: this is not an inheritance, this is a wrapper to the description of a part of a group of classes, like IDisposable. It is the same as a multiple inheritance with one implemented class and some abstract classes: it is a particular case which allows only one way hierarchy with interfaces as abstract connectors that describes services.

Some developers say that interfaces can be used to separate the access to an object of this instance. Historically, interfaces are a COM & DCOM heritage: they are used to manipulate components services, whatever objects are, where they are, and how they are implemented. Interfaces are not a replacement to multiple inheritance, they are something else.
