Internet Control Fight Over, We Won.
Negotiators from more than 100 countries agreed late Tuesday to leave the United States in charge of the Internet's addressing system, averting a U.S.-EU showdown at this week's U.N. technology summit.
The onus now lies with the developing world to bring in not just opinions, but investment to expand the Internet to their benefit, he said.
The accord reached late Tuesday also called for the establishment of a new international group to give more countries a stronger say in how the Internet works, including the issue of making domain names _ currently done in the Latin languages _ into other languages, such as Chinese, Urdu and Arabic.
Honestly, is it just me, or does this sound the “international community” trying to put a good sounding spin on the United States telling them to go pound sand?
I wonder who really thought this was going to fly to begin with, well, besides our doomsday mainstream media.
