Can on trust machines or have we to trust those behind? Who are they?

higher than national?
Is that not the level of TNC, TransNationalCorporations as they see themselves?

>to ensure that we can all get
>together around a new model of governance in which all are equal,"

equal what: men and women? citizen? customer? information source?

Does that mean really: Govs, TNCs, national, medium, small 
coporations, SOHOs, civil society, Churches, NGO, engineers, 
academics, people on the same footing.

I would be interested in completing this chronology.
- with what jfc may have gathered (I kept the same date format).
- with your comments. In particular for lead users (users having the 
capacity to adapt their socket to their needs).

NB. The two most opposite coherent thesis I currently have hearof are:

1. /1net.org is a spontanous proposition of Adiel which fell well in 
the international and tense context of governance.

2. Internationalization as tried with Peter Dengate Trush + Homeland 
did not suit
   - the US TNCs interests. They need more control security over 
their EDI exchanges
   - and militaries who need to be cyberdeterrent IRT crime and other nations.


In both cases (i.e. by chance or planned) a "Burn the Phenix" move 
was necessary/planned to initate the change. The phoenix was NSA and 
Snowden the agent to light the pyre. US allies are OECD and 
challengers (politically and commercially) are the BRICS. The ICANN 
remaining unicity was the way to build a technical test bridge (Sao 
Paulo). It was used with the triple accomodation that :

- no technical governance issues would raised
- ITU Telcos would participate.
- it would be between USCC (cyber command, Fort Meade) and TNC (WTO, 
GS1, etc.) as opposed to Users. "we must not allow economic, 
political and religious interests to interfere in the free 
circulation of [formated] ideas".This is because wa also talk of 
formated ideas being EDI, advertizing, politically correct,

Than you
