The operation of the Internet seems to be getting a lot of attention these days. I read in the paper just the other day that a number of other countries want to control the Internet. Perhaps it is just me, but why is there a big fight over ICANN and VeriSign's legal disputes over domain registration/ownership, when the big picture threat would be the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan hiring a Chinese Communist Party official to lead the Internet Regulation Task Force? Amazing really. I, for one, do not want the Internet falling into the hands of the UN, much less a communist official. The Internet has come to be the bastion of free speech, and the constant flow of information and ideas from business to business, from person to person, and from one nation to another. Please, let's keep our eyes on the ball here folks, and stop squabbling over ICANN and Verisign. Support this settlement. Innovation and progress will benefit the high tech sector and all of it's consumers. Future innovation will always be more important down the road than any litigation.
