Do the NSA revelations have anything to do with Internet governance? | IGP Blog

e are deluding ourselves if we think that the way the global internet is governed can be detached from the game of power politics among states, and that the openness and freedom of the Internet’s information flows will not be powerfully affected by other countries, and other citizens’, trust (or lack thereof) of the world’s biggest and most powerful state. Domestic institutional reform in the US may not be enough.

What the Internet Is, and Should Continue to Be

What the Internet Is, and Should Continue to Be | Internet Governance around the web | Scoop.it
Occasionally, people ask my perspective on the Internet, since I often object to confusing it with things like the telephone or Cable TV. Recently I composed a response that captures my perspective, as one of the participants in its genesis, and as an advocate for sustaining its fundamental initial design principles. I hope these words clarify what I believe many of those who continue to create the Internet continue to do, even though most of them are not aware of it. I also hope many will see their interest in keeping the core principles of the Internet alive.

For an unfettered Internet

For an unfettered Internet | Internet Governance around the web | Scoop.it

India, as the world’s largest democracy, must review its stance and claim its rightful position in the world as a leader which gave the world new ideas of resilience, non-violence and truth. It is time for change; to put the public back in public policy and IG with the least amount of government control for an unfettered, spirited and vibrant Internet of the future — of the people, places and things that India dreams of, and to facilitate access and celebrate diversity, cherish pluralism and the multiplicity of opinion and voices.

Machiavelli, Huxley, and Internet Governance | NewsClick

Machiavelli, Huxley, and Internet Governance | NewsClick | Internet Governance around the web | Scoop.it

Richard Hill,February 18,2014

Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince was first circulated in 1513, so it seems fitting, 500 years later, to see whether it has anything to say about the current disputes regarding Internet governance. And in 1958 Aldous Huxley published Brave New Word Revisited, in which he made some predictions regarding the future of democracy and society in general. So it seems fitting 55 years later, to see whether it has anything to say about Internet governance.
