How refreshing and true!

The transition is from a decentralized (cf. NTIA "the internet is a 
decentralized network") to a distributed network. From US centricity 
(NTIA contract) to a people's centricity (WSIS) that most of the 
people of this "sandbox" still confuse with an ICANN centricity "in 
consultation with the NTIA" (cf. scope: NTIA has the con, as usual) 
"under the Affirmation of Commitments". This is why they confuse what 
is meant to be a "first step of work" with the whole walk. They 
forget that this first step is only about a "global dialogue".

However, it seems that this "first step" is going to end on sept 2015 
(cf. the circus road map on the ICANN pags). So, the second is the 
transfer from NTIA to ICANN and not to the us the people of the world.

Have you the same feeling?

There was an attempt to discuss governance outside of the ICANN 
middleware, but it stopped as becoming ICANN inclusive. Should we 
start a multilingual mailing list?


BTW, I found an interesting site for those who want to discuss 
network reality and resulting governance functions in more details
