quoting your blog entry's last sentence, "Domestic institutional reform in
the US may not be enough."
That domestic institutional reform as a pending task is part of the tail
that is wagging the dog. Shifting away from it to the Sao Paulo
get-together, merrily kicking the ICANN football around "because it's
there", winding endless yarns around WSIS, etc. is only delaying a
conversation that people like you and your government should have started
long ago. The world is watching and waiting for those like you in the US
who think this needs fixing to hold the bull by the horns without
ricocheting around. Non-USians may have ideas but no standing to undertake
That would signal another, maybe productive, way to slice "Prolem no. 1"
into parts that can lead to a solution.

I would claim that there is no technical linkage between the two. Those that believe there is such a linkage have the obligation to describe in detail, with evidence, exactly what they believe that linkage is.
> There is also a perception that ICANN and therefore the IANA function being located in the USA have given the NSA an advantage in being able to carry out their various surveillance activities. I asset that this is not true. Those that believe there is such a linkage have the obligation to describe in detail, with evidence, exactly what they believe that linkage is.
