Pokenon Go!

Post by voguy » 07-17-2016 10:07 AM

You've probably heard of the Pokemon Go! craze.

This is how one neighbor solved the problem.

Taking The Lead Among All World Nations, Iran Bans Pokemon Go!

Post by Riddick » 08-08-2016 07:03 PM

Iran’s Supreme Council of Virtual Spaces, which is a real thing and not the dystopian government from a sci-fi TV show, declared the nationwide ban due to “unspecified security concerns”, and comes following a short deliberation where the Council “were waiting to see to what extent the game’s creators would co-operate with them”.

While other bodies have taken measures against people playing Pokemon Go! (or reminded folks about existing security arrangements), this is the first time that an entire country has banned the game outright.

'Pokémon GO' Away

Relatively few regulations were in place to deal with what happened last summer, and no city was truly prepared for Pokémon Go.

Residents in the toniest parts of Wisconsin’s largest metro area had no desire to catch ‘em all. Glued to their phone screens, Pokémon Go players marched through Milwaukee’s upscale neighborhoods, and descended upon the Frederick Law Olmstead-designed Lake Park at all hours of the night.

Neighbors complained for months, and police blockades were erected and then tested, leading Milwaukee County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman, a long-time state assemblyman, to hold hearings on the matter.

Wasserman proposed an ordinance that would regulate and restrict the use of public parks by augmented reality app developers. The law was passed in February by the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors … and followed by a lawsuit filed in late April by a Nevada-based A.R. company named Candy Lab.

Milwaukee's War On 'Pokémon GO' Could Change Tech Forever

The regulation of an entire burgeoning industry, and the interpretation of the Constitution in the digital age, could be impacted by the court’s decision.

“The solution that [Wasserman] picked to solve, what he perceived as a problem, is regulating the publication of content,” Brian Wassom, the attorney representing Candy Lab in the lawsuit. “And that’s been unlawful ever since we’ve had the First Amendment.”

“The risk is that every municipality will take it upon themselves to adopt different rules about who can and can’t publish A.R. content and under what circumstances,” he predicts.

“Having to pay permit fees to every single county, something like that would destroy the A.R. industry and the potential that it has to grow into the next mass medium of communication. There’s no reason why it would stop at games. They could regulate consumer review content, they could regulate navigation, entertainment, news-gathering, you name it.”

And so, when the case is heard in court later this month, there will be more at stake than where people engage in late-night hunts for Charizards.

:idea: This is on topic and related to Riddick's post.

Play Pokemon today :!: Go for it :!: Our grown up fire district's firefighters, EMTs, and 1 paramedic have since lost interest. I doubt for the reasons Uncle Sam was inspiring them to play the "game?" All after I opened up about what you've read above and in this link, in their presence while playing on line :!: :lol:
