never i say that the government should organize the free access to the
free communication system. It is your line of thinking. Of course, they
can do it, if the people in this region want it. But never it is a must.
all this discussions on this list about "Internet Gouvernance" with
installed institutions comes from only one technical construction:
To virtualize geografical positions. To create a virtual layer over the
reality. And this layer, abstracted from the concrete basis, need a
"Gouvernance". Need representation.
We can follow, that this virtualisation is a function for creating
representations. A function to make this institutions necessary. Maybe.
In the discussions in the 70th and 80th years we had the same situation.
The fundamental discussion about the basics of addressing methods was
not possible. That, what we give today the name "InterNet", came from a
small niche and had no power to define the environment.
This situation now is changed. The people, outside of the self-defined
"experts", come more and more to the center and formulate his needs.
And, because they understand the very easy technical questions and
understand the absurd superstructure they no longer accept this stupidity.
I understand well that many people on this list defend this garbage of
today's design of the Internet. And that they talk about the importance
of institutions (such as ICANN) without understanding their inner
structure and tasks.
The problem here is a general problem. We can only understand what we
have to do to redesign the internet transport mechanism if we understand
the technical requirements. But not on the base of the garbage, what we
have. Only on the base of the technical requirement for packet transport
over geografical distances.
many greetings, willi
