KATHMANDU, April 8, 2018 – Digital Diplomacy is a tool to exercise international affairs harvesting national interest using digital technology or for or in digital technology.

Rhode Island, USA, 1st November 2017 – English class was at 6pm at Quinn hall in university on Thursday. I sat off to class in time and found a student there. On the way to lecture, instructor, Shelley from international center, let me introduce with other few colleagues after they entered. We found the class was very happening, interesting and fruitful. After class new friend, Elif (name changed), from Turkey gave me lift to my apartment along with another colleague, Bo (name changed), from China. Elif promised to meet me for further discussion in our topic on Friday since our research topic was similar.
Rhode Island, USA, 9 November 2017 — Seeking chance of failure of technology is a kind of preventing future consequences tensed by technology, the consequences – humanitarian crisis or technology crisis. It is also wide idea to identity potential latent future conflict tensed by digital technology so that we could take measure to prevent those conflicts for better world and smooth technology implementation.
New York, USA, 4 November 2017 — A magnitude of digital technological based on cloud influences in social calendar of persons, society and state living with or without digital technology exposes digital supremacy which is rendering social conversation in new forms – linear conversation, and disruptive conversation. Scheme of conversation makes sense of relations among social actors – state and non-state actors. New media is witness of digital mediation nowadays. Aiming with exploration of framework to compute digital supremacy in terms of social calendar simulation by digital technology and decision-making power in International Relations (IR) aligning social relations among people and society in ground reality, this work has gone through two manifolds – social constructivism reflecting multiple realities generated by digital technology and de-constructive analysis of conversation text with semiotic analysis tool.

Political parties in Nepal are likely to paying huge money to American companies for their sponsored link in social media according to Annapurna Post on Thursday, 11th May 2017 which I have already stated in 2016 releasing an article in Annapurna Post.
Prediction of my article in Annapurna Post in 2016 is likely to meet speculation nearby local election happening on Sunday 14th May 2017 in Nepal. The scene of Economics of Netpolitik would gain very different steering in upcoming general election in a way to push forward politics on the Internet differently.
She was still using same cell phone with text dominating system but color phone which was gifted, second handed, six years ago by his son when he got new one. She showed me the phone and said it was the same phone when we met six years ago. She was using phone only to receive phone calls however she has started dialing from immediate, six years ago, I shared to operate properly. I told my number and she dialed again. Incoming call displaying name of “Dil Kumari Chhetry” on my phone was evidence of media richness using smart technology, for example – smart phone, cloud and the Internet – that I am using. However, she had also my number but it was saved as different name which is unknown to her since she can’t still recognize English script. This is a story of woman – Dil Kumary Chhetry – from Ghandruk which is one of accessible remote areas of Nepal and in line of Annapurna trail circuit. I revisited her in her house with my family in March 2017. I met her six years ago in December 2011 when I was in academic research of e-Government project work for Kathmandu University.
An e-mail, which was going to mark successful work ahead, popped up into my computer in beginning of February 2015 when I have just returned from my university in Rajasthan, India after completing pre-requisite coursework of my PhD. The e-mail was about to submit research paper in international conference in Assam University. I was excited and eager to learn more search work writing papers. I accepted it immediately to gear up my paper.
Raising of machine, especially digital technology, is not an issue at all. However, increasing digital supremacy rending societal and civitas calendar is an eye-opener of digital mediation and its power. Man is in digital race enticing his power with machine debuting machine civilization and edging humanity in materialistic world. Advancement of digital technology and ongoing rapid success rate in digital technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning would bring a reality of machine civilization in notice of human beings after immediate of capability of machine to reproduce, and ego – constructing “I” in their existence. Enticing of power and politics within two civilizations would bring new social contract introducing new story of leviathan to establish power and politics between tow civilizations. And machine civilization would obviously represent mirror of characters and thought of its inventors or scientist. At the day of machine civilization human won’t be only one most intelligent animal on the earth as today in a way of realism. Nexus of new civilization of machine won’t be stopped since man is in digital race and he won’t stop to prove as if his super capacity building same as him.
With increasing penetration of the Internet in Nepal, 46.04 per cent in 2015 and 38.68 per cent in 2014, diplomats, government and political parties have also entered into digital diplomacy for digital battle to contest with their own context in modern society equipped with science and technology. People with ambition of the materialistic world and race of advancement, won’t now stop in this reasoning era living with digital technology like the Internet. One of the least developed countries like Nepal has 4 million Facebook users in 2016, said Facebook.
If the Internet is being source of everything in information age, sooner the Internet would be conflicting domain like air, land and maritime not only in civic but also in state and international level morphing skills of military in more logical strategy than hard core exercise in order to defuse terrorist who supposed to make headlines. However, technical preventive measures are holding and mediating such disputes currently, national and international cooperation and international instruments are required to prevent and mediate such latent future digital conflicts in national and international scope since those conflicts are beyond border.
