US Control of the Internet:
an unsuspected ally in the form of human rights organzations seems to back
up the current model under US control. Reporter Ohne Grenzen, a leftwing
pro free press organziation (who not too long ago got the Sacharow price)
is opposed to the change of ICANN supervision. They are worried
dictatorships will gain more influence over the internet this way.
already reporter complain that Tunesia is limiting their ability to report
What a mess. Why do they bother meeting there.
US congress did not help matters with their little stunt.
There were reports less than a week ago, that French postings were disappearing right and left from the internet.
You are a treasure, Kathianne. It amazes me how far off most people's radar screens this story is. Yet it is one of the principal battles of our age.
exactly! if you cant get your own house in order, then why try to get something as big as the net in order on the side?
i mean, imagine it... you get the news they want you to see, no cartoons as they could be making fun of some government some place. no tech sites (we wouldnt want the populace to be getting smarter than the monkeys in charge now would we?), absolutley no porn (wheres my guns!), definatley no political sites (cant have people voicing any opinions now).
they should jsut due and go away. i wouldnt piss on the un if it were on fire
as for culturally appropriate content.... now thats going to be a tough one. whats appropriate here (politics, guns, porn...etc) isnt going to be appropriate in some pinko commie country (rape, fucking sheep, murder...etc).
so let them take charge and the net will go down. they cant jsut grasp the fact that we built it first and best. as ive stated before in other posts, let them build their own net and govern that one. leave ours alone.
