Although this has been promoted by
mostly Europe the rest of the world for many years, it appears that the US is going to give up control of the internet as we know it.
Do we really want that? As much business as we do over the web, do we want a bunch of Europeans with anto American complexes (see also: Brussels) having control over the internet as we know it? Having the ability to change, deny or otherwise mess with Domain Names and such?
Is this a good idea? I don’t think so. Handing over control of something the US invented, and that the US has controlled in a benign manner from the beginning to a bunch of other countries who may not have our (or others) interests at heart is not a good idea.
Let ’em start their own brand of internet if they wanna control it.
